I have Sony Vaio with Windows 8. WiFi is connected with full signal, but the internet will not work. On another laptop the internet is working perfect with the same WiFi network.
I tried also with a mobile internet device. It's connected but again the internet is not working.
Do you have any solution?
Thank you.

Sounds like a ISP activation issue. What ISP do you have?

The computer came with a proxy setting that I was not aware of. Thank you, I just solved it :)
