Issue with connecting to the internet

Just this afternoon I went out and bought a MacBook Pro. When I got home to connect to my home network, it connects but there's no internet access. What's odd is, when it finishes establishing connection, my Windows machine on the same network ceases to have internet connection. I have no idea why this is happening.

I had it all working at the Apple store but when I tried it at home, shit hit the ceiling and I couldn't get it work.
Welcome to the club, you won't be disappointed Applause
Just ignore those jealous people who call you a fanboy and other less names!

Wireless or wired? Can you ping the router and ?
Applications -> Utilities -> Network Utility
I love this Mac, still getting the hang of the shortcuts. Managing files using the GUI is in my opinion, crap but a few simple commands in terminal gets the job done. Which is the main reason why I love the Mac. For simple things, there's an amazing gui available and for more complicated things, there's the terminal. Most people hate it but I love it to bits and I do nearly everything on it. Can't really say the same about Windows command line.

Anyway, I changed the router. When using wired, every device has internet connection (neither wireless or wired would work before) however there still isn't an internet connection when using wireless. What's worse is, none of my other computers have internet connection while using a wireless connection. I suspect the problem is with the router but, I'm not sure. I'll see if I can fix it later tonight.

Can you ping the router and ?
Applications -> Utilities -> Network Utility

Before: Neither on a wireless or wired connection would respond.
Now: Wireless no ping but with the wired connection:

Ping has started…

If you can ping, so you have access to Internet.

Sorry for being rude.

No ****** shit, mate.
So I spent a little more time trying to get this thing to work and after half an hour, I found this thread.

All I had to do was change the location from Automatic to my current location. I'm wondering how does changing the location affect my connection? I've never had this problem when working on my Linux or Windows machine.
Hi friends, you can following the instruction step by step and I am sure your problems is resolved -

1. Reboots the router support device.
2. Open the web browser and type and enter.
3. Check the router setting.
4. Verify the network connection is working.
5. Check the internet connection.

Done !!
