Sony vaio won't connect to Internet

Hey guys,

So my laptop is finding networks and connecting to them it says I have Internet but when I try to load it up it's not working, I know the connection is ok as I'm posting this using my phone which is also connected to the same wifi and the net is working fine. When I connected with my phone I had to provide an email addy so I could get access however my laptop won't even let me et this far.

Any ideas on the problem and how it can be resolved would be great.
