Network connection there, but internet not accessible

Hello all,

A friend of mine, who is using a Toshiba laptop, sees a full signal on his laptop, but he cannot access the internet. The wireless connection is working because he can access the local servers. I checked in network connections and it also says that it is connected to local and internet. I tried connections in both IE and Firefox, neither worked so it must not be the web browser either. Are there any suggestions of anything else useful to get this internet connection working?

Toshiba laptop
Windows Vista

Thanks for the help
