I had this problem with a Lenovo C200 all in one desktop machine.

It would find wireless networks, including my own home one, connect but with no Internet access & no network access.
There was always an exclamation remark over the wireless connection indicating no Internet access.

It was very frustrating as I tried everything, router changes, static IP, etc…

What solved the issue was a driver upgrade on the wireless card in the machine.

The wireless card was an Atheros AR9285 with a driver version 8.0.0.xx

I got the latest version for use with Win 7 Ultimate 32bit here

Drivers for Atheros AR9285 and Windows 7

Download version 10.0.0.45 for use with Win 7 Ultimate 32bit on a different PC & copied to USB flash drive.

Once driver upgraded with new version practically instantly resolved, Internet & network access, bang, straight in.

Hope this helps anyone else having this crappy problem.
