Help! Internet wireless connection "connects" but no internet access

Hi all! I was installing a software on my other laptop (it had SQL software with it) and I ran into some trouble as I got error problems that the installation of the software had failed and now whatever I do, I can't access the web! Sure enough, my wireless connection connects successfully and it indicates that I am on the "Internet" but every time I try to use either firefox or internet explorer to go to a web site, it says I don't have a connection. It is extremely
odd and I don't know what it might be...

Hopefully someone can help me out with this. Thank you ahead of time for your assistance.

thanks but I solved my issue. someone advised me to do a tcp/ip reset and I did so :)

Good to hear that you managed to resolve you issue and found a solution somewhere, even if it wasn't here.
Thanks for posting back and updating your thread with the solution that worked for you.
That's kind of a solution of last resort, but as long as it got the job done, that's the main thing.
Good job and thanks again.
