Re: Internet not working
Clear all your temp internet files as you may have corrupt cookies, assuming you have been able to surf before.
Or run this
ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.(note the gap between ipconfig and the /).
If you havent, run the network sharing wizard ensure you have set your router to enable DHCP which will give your pc an automatic IP address.
Also check the properties of your network card and on the TCP/IP properties ensure 'Obtain IP address automatically' is selected.

Please connect your computer directly to your DSL / Cable modem and check if your internet is working fine, if not turn off your modem and restart after a minute or two.
Now check again if the internet is working by directly connecting your laptop to your modem. if it is not working, contact ISP. if it is working, turn on your router and check if your wireless connection is working.
If you wireless connection is still not working, please check if you have plugged the modem to the internet / WAN port behind your router.
Also try logging to your router page (refer to manual for procedure) and try changing the wireless channel.
You have to do a few steps to check the problem :
1.Check if the wireless switch is on, on your laptop.
2. If it is on then check if the network adaptors are installed or not. You can check that by going into device manager ( start - run - devmgmt.msc).
If it is not installed you will find a exclamation mark or simply go to your manufacturers website and update your wireless driver.
3.Then go to Start\Connect To\Show All Network Connections (or, if this doesn't show up on your computer, Start\Control Panel\Network And Internet Connections\Network Connections). For your wireless card, remove it from the bridge (right click on the wireless network and enable it if it is disabled and then if you have a option remove it from bridge click on that.)
4.Restart your wireless zero configration.
Go to control panel/Administrative tools/Services, right-clicking on the "Wireless Zero Configuration", and telling it to stop. After it stops, right-click on it again, and tell it to start, and then wait a minute or so and see what happens.
then try to connect and see if you can for this go to the network and sharing center search for all the wireless networks and try to connect.
I think this should do it for you.
If not reply with the message or error you get.
First to check whether Internet is working Connect your computer and Router with Ethernet wire instead of connecting wirelessly. If Internet works on wired mode that means security key for wireless is wrong. Change the SSID (name of your network) from Router login page and then connect again while ensuring you are entering the correct key. As sometimes even if you enter wrong security key Computer will show connected to Router but you will not be able to access anything.
I think there might be lost in the packet sending. You said the PC is still connected to the network but not able to go online. Is there any other wireless computer which is able to go online wirelessly and working fine. If yes then try to uninstall and reinstall the adapter. If not then check the router wireless settings.

check your firewall setting.
check if your connection is working or not, by connecting to other pc if possible.
check if dns etc config for your internet is ok, for this you must call you ISP and check if there are no issues with you connection.
showing connecting cant mean actually connected, it wont work unless confuguration setting are good.
thanks for your time.... now, as i understand you correctly.. even though you seem to be connected ot the internet wirelessly, you are not able to pull out webpages right?
Try to power cycle the modem.. turn off modem and the computer for about 5 minutes... then try to power it on.. wait for the lights on the modem to turn green and then try to connect... you should be connected. good luck
To my knowledge of understanding is as if the WIFI is weak and cannot get connected to any network around anymore so if you wish to have a wirelless connection you can still make use of a USB doggle and the network operator or manufacturer will give you the access and you browse anywhere you go with your system and the USB will be connected to your system ok

First make sure wireless is turned ON or enabled on the computer, then use the View Available Networks to connect to the your SSID or network name. IF you can connect to router then you should be able to surf Internet.
