Having issues connecting to home wifi...help!

Okay I'm using a Dell Inspiron with Windows 7 and I can connect to my neighbors wifi just fine, but when I go to connect to our home, I enter the correct password and it connects...but the internet doesn't work! I know nothing is wrong with out wifi, my iPhone can connect just fine! I tried searching google and couldn't find much that actually helped, so I decided to make an account and come here. Anyone have ideas?

Are you using homegroup for networking? what encryption are you using?

Hi blackcatss, welcome to the forums

Try opening the 'Network and Sharing Center' and clicking 'Manage Wireless networks'. Find your network, click it then click remove.

Now try connecting again as Windows will treat it like a brand new connection.

Hope it helps
