Dell inspiron 1525 has good wireless signal but i can't get on the internet any more. At first you could type in google,and it would work. Then you type in yahoo it would not go to that site. N

go to your taskbar icon for your wireless and right click and click on open network and sharing on manage wireless networks. delete all your networks. close the sharing center and then press the windows key and the r key at the same time. type cmd. in the black box type ipconfig /flushdns hit enter. type exit. go back to your taskbar icon and left click. click the connection you're trying to connect to and hit connect. enter the security password, and try again.. this should fix everything. good luck
