Question about Computers & Internet
Click on tools in IE and see if "Work Offline" is checked. If so, uncheck it.
If not, then your internet connection is most likely not configured correctly. Go to control panel, find the network adapter settings and make sure they match your laptop.
Let me know if you have any more questions.

Is it set to work OFFLINE? (clicking file on the pulldown menu will reveal WORK OFFLINE. If it is checked - click on it to remove the checkmark)
What version of IE are you running?
Can you browse with another program like Opera, Google Chrome, or FireFox??
There is a button to toggle the WIFI card on and off...is the WIFI light illuminated??.
Otherwise a hard reset is in order to re- establish your WIFI IP address.
Unplug the modem, router, and power down your PC(s).
Wait 5 minutes and plug in your router.
Wait 5 more minutes for the Modem to get full strength signal.
Now plug in router.
Wait again for the router to establish the connection.
Now power on your PC, and let it connect and obtain a new IP address.
Please accept this answer to remove it from the work queue and give the hard reset a try.
If it still does not work properly - return and re-post with the steps you have taken - along with a model # of your HP laptop.
