    Firstly, you can connect to a wireless router even if it doesn't have an active inet connection, the router being on but the modem off.

    If you are unlucky enough to be using windows vista check to see if the connection is classed as 'local access only'. There are a number of fixes for this issue, its really prevalent with vista machines which regularly connect to a different wireless networks. If you are using vista go into device manager and uninstall/reinstall your wireless drivers, don't completely remove them just uninstall.

    Check to see if you can login the router IP is usually one of these:

    192.168.0.1
    192.168.1.1
    192.168.2.1

    for the login try
    admin / password
    admin / admin

    You might see some wierd dns settings or something..

    Otherwise type ipconfig /all in a cmd box and see if you are being given a proper address. 192.X.X.X is good as is 10.X.X.X but if you are getting 169.x.x.x then its not connected properly. You could also try and manually set your IP address sometimes that'll work.

    Same problem here. The strange thing is that I could connect fine until a little while ago, then, all of a sudden, I can't access the internet.

    I'm going to try the tips above, let's see if I'm lucky and I manage to figure it out.

    Thats because they probably have MAC filtering enabled! just find out whats the MAC addres of the laptop(s) that connect to the network and change yours accordinally to that info.

    because you are already on the network it shouldnt be to hard finding IPs in the network using a port scanning app, or the ping cmd. Then to find out the MAC addres go to START > RUN > CMD and in the dos prompt type nbtstat -a TARGERED IP (example nbtstat -a 192.168.1.102)
    now change your MAC address with a tool like SMAC to your target MAC address, thats it you ready to go... and internet should work after reboot. You just changed your PC to make it look like your neighboors !

    More info can be found online on this matter. good luck

    I love when my moron neighbors connect to my purposely unencrypted network. I sniff all their traffic and control their browsing, they type in Google and I send them to where ever I like because I control the DNS.

    Anyways do ipconfig /all check to make sure you have a valid IP address, usually a 192.168.*.* IP and that you have a valid Gateway address. The Gateway should be the router's IP. If the Gateway is there then try and ping Google. If you cant ping the Google then try and ping the gateway IP. If that works then do netsh winsock reset then reboot.

    Hope this helps.

    don't know what it is, but it sounds painful
    Try flushing your DNS, in a command prompt type ipconfig/flushdns
