I had this problem today and am posting how to resolve it.
 
Simple:
 
Go to the network icon (5 bars), click it, go to "Change adapter settings", right click your Wifi adapter>Properties>Internet Protocol Version 4>Properties> and then click on "use the following DNS addresses". Set the primary DNS server to 8.8.8.8. Now your "Internet" will actually be "connected".

Right on. On some occasions, ISP s do not do anyone any favors with DNS.
