I have a belkin wireless router connected to the modem, somehow recently I am connected to the wireless router but I do not have any internet. I followed these steps and I was back online. I believe somehow the wireless router lost the dns server info from the modem.
  • 1). Disconnect the wireless router from the modem.
  • 2). Power off the modem.
  • 3). Connect the wireless router to the modem.
  • 4). Now power up the modem.


Now try to disable/enable the wireless connection and reconnect, you should be able to access the internet.

Hope this works for all of you

Yes, I also recommend this as the best answer.
Make sure DHCP is enabled on your wireless router. Mine somehow became disabled when a new highspeed connection was installed (new ISP).
1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.

2. Click Run... on this menu.

3. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.

4. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).

5. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.

6. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).

I took it from http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/23807-18-access-router-internet

hi,
search for available wireless networks first.
right-click on the wireless icon in the taskbar.
