I know this might be a question that people have solved a lot but none of the answers are solving my problem that I can find on the Internet. I have full wifi bars, no warning sign, it says I'm connected and has Internet Access, I can also sometimes go on Skype but it says cannot find server for both browsers use, Firefox and IE

Instead of letting the DHCP server of the Router assign an IP and DNS to you, I would suggest using an IP from the series alloted there and permanent original DNS server IPs not the 192.168.X.X ones in the equipment you're using to connect to the wifi router.
That ought to solve the browsing issues.

So are you saying that I have to manually add DNS IPs and not the automatic DNS IPs that they give me?

So can I just enter like random numbers after 192.168?

No no no...... depending on the series that your router is dishing out, you can put in a number that is not being used by any equipment on the network. I hope this is your home network we're talking about.
You can put in say 192.168.x.50 incase it is free and not being used by anything else.
The DNS has to be the same that your ISP has given you and not from the 192.168.x.x series.

I replaced the DNS IPs with 207.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, it didnt work. but when I used the Ethernet, I think I found out why the wireless wasn't working. Basically, the data from the website servers that my computer is sending and receiving is not a lot, like normally it sends and receives the data very quickly, well apprentally my computer sends and receives them very slowly, and it will say can't connect to server because it is acting like there is not enough signal to reach the website, but there should be. Same thing happened when I plugged in my Ethernet cord. Some of my friends said it could be a program problem that is blocking this or some settings. But I don't know what exactly is blocking it...any help?!

Firstly follow this procedure on the PC with your Ethernet cable connected. Disable the Wifi on the PC if it exists.
Then repeat the process with Wifi connected and ethernet disabled if the Wifi connection exists in the PC.
