    So you have a wifi adapter plugged into your router? Your pc then connectes to the router via the adapter?

    If thats the case it sounds like you need to change the settings on the wifi adapter thats plugged into the router. Its likely the gateway settings are not correctly configured. The gateway should probably be set to your routers IP address.
    If you're not sure then wait until its working and check the status -> details of the network adapter you are using, this will give you the gateway ip and the subnet ip.

    Good luck!
