Trouble Accessing Internet through Wireless Router

I'm having trouble accessing the internet. I can connect to my wireless router successfully, but I can not access the actual internet. However, other computers connected to the same network can. What are some potential problems?

"Being that the computer is Win2k, I've found that some of the third-party programs to connect the computer wirelessly cause issues. Check your third-party program to make sure that it has all of the information for the Gateway and DNS Server(s).
