Wireless Connected with Full Bars but Can't Access Websites
I am trying to connect to my new 20mb broadband connection wirelessly through a Sony Vaio thats roughly a year old with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit installed. I can see the wireless network and connect and it shows full white bars (I assume that means full strength connection) but whenever I open my browser and try to access a website it cannot display it.
I also have a Mac laptop and that can use the wireless with no problems so I know it's not a router/modem issue. I have a 2-in-1 hub so I cannot update the router firmware but it should be the latest as my ISP updates it remotely.
I have tried installing the latest drivers for my intel wifi adapter but that didnt solve the issue.
When I go to the status of the wireless connection it shows it as connected and sending bytes back and forward.
Anything else I can try?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Where would that option be?
Some more info if it's helpful: I can connect fine through a wired connection and it connects fine to a different broadband connection at a friends house (I think their router is a wireless G and mine is an N and im also using WPA2 AES security and I think my friend uses WPA but I dont have that option on my router) but I assume that since it can connect that security and wireless N isnt the problem?
