    I take it that your router, is properly configured with internet access. You can verify that the router status matches the settings for your internet provider. If you do, then remove all the settings from your pc obtains a dhcp address. If your settings are correct on the router then verify the wireless settings and the security passkey.

    Can you ping yahoo or other domains? Also check if your browser is not set to offline. Also varify your wireless connection settings.
