My laptop says that there is an excellent wireless connection that has been established. However, no program can do anything with that connection.

Firefox, IE, Safari, etc. all won't let me browse the web. Firefox gives a page load error, yada yada yada.

Digsby, and AIM won't connect either.


The cause isn't Symantec because I disabled all of the networking protection, and I'm still having problems.


Any ideas?

EDIT: It's not the router either because I had this problem both at school, and at home today.

In the absence of other replies, you could try this -

Start/Run/Type in [ CMD ]/OK/Type [ ipconfig(space)/flushdns ]/Enter

Come back if this does nothing.

I tried that already, as well as the iprelease/iprenew commands.

No luck.


Just tried a wired connection, and that's not working either.
