Re: status is connected, but can't access...
This problem can happen either when your ISP is having a server problem and changes their WAN IP address to alter your speed, or the speed that they are syncing your line at is too fast for it to handle and therefore will keep dropping the ADSL signal until the line itself balances the speed out over a 24 hour period, the same can apply with cable.

The easiest way would would be to install a DSL line in the APT and connect direct.
Have you got the correct WEP key to the wireless networks?
Do you ever have a warning that you are connected with limited connectivity or acquiring address takes ages?
If so, you may be attempting to connect to a network with the wrong key. In addition, it may even show you are connected, yet you cannot access pages.
Have you ever succeeded in connecting properly?
Please provide answers and I will try to help some more.
Yes, the status light indicates activity so it is normal for it to flash.

It is a good idea to disconnect the power to your router for at least 30 seconds every few weeks. You should also do this to any hubs/switches between your computers and the router. Logon to router and try to set the MTU to 1492. Make sure only have one router between you and the Internet. Many ISP's refer to bridges and routers as modems so it is hard to tell. If your router connects to "modem" to access the Internet try connecting your computer directly to the "modem". If that works better then you have multiple routers "Natting". (Google: double nat) Finally, try a different router.
Scan your computer for problems using Malwarebytes.org. Install all available "messenger" updates and fixes. If you are referring to Windows Messenger it has been replaced with Windows Live Messenger which is a free download. (Google: Windows Live Messenger)
I recommend that you start with the easiest recommendation to follow and, if necessary, continue to the next easiest. Don't try to do everything at once.
If there is any firewall running locally on your network, turn it off. Then try again. You will be able to browse. If u are able to access skype, yahoo messenger, then u should also able to access websites too
