I just installed windows 8 pro (legit copy)and everything was fine during installation. Now, my laptop connected to wireless internet successfully and the signal has all bars. But I am unable to connect to internet. Any website I go to shows this webpage is not available. With windows 7 everything was fine.
Can someone please help me out

Laptop Toshiba Satellite P745
Wireless router D-link
Nothing wrong with ISP as I am able to access internet with other devices

Thanks in advance

Is this a retail copy?

 

Have installed the wireless and wifi driver/s from Toshiba?

 

Have you tried turning on the wireless connection via the FN + F8 keys?

It turns out that the problem is the firewall. When I switched it off, I was able to access internet.

Have you tried to configure the firewall to allow your browser to be used?

 

You can find instructions for doing this here.
