I will help (and so can others) but some helpful information is needed.
Exact model # of your laptop
operating system, and service packs(?)
Who is the ISP? It it also broadband or dialup or something else?
Approx how old it is (I know this might not sound helpful, it is).
Does your ISP require any special software to access Internet?

That is a good start.

What about if you try booting in safe mode (Tapping F8 while booting) with networking, can you get an internet connection with one of your browsers?
