Are you really connected?

Firstly check if you have a valid IP address from the wireles router. Goto start, select run, type in cmd and you'll get a dos window up. Type ipconfig and hit return, you should get up a bunch of info on your ipaddress etc including a default gateway. To check your computer can talk to the router ping the default gateway address with for example ping
If you are connected you'll see a response.
If you are connected OK you need to check your connection settings in internet explorer, Click on tools, internet options, connections, check the box never dial a connection, click on LAN settings and check the box automatically detect settings. This should now work. OK?
