wireless troubleshooting

My laptop has a wireless signal but I cannot access any website. I can ping but the ping time is around 150ms. When I plugged my laptop straight into Verizon router, I cannot access the Internet without any problem. How do I troubleshoot my wireless? I already reset my router several times. Thanks

One place you can start is to install Wifi Analyzer on your phone to check for interference on the channel
