Laptop Internet troubles

Hello forums, on a laptop of mine (acer travelmate 4200) the Internet is really frustrating me, and I would like some help on this. Here are some details

Problem: No Internet connection while connected to router

Details: I accidentally clicked the switch on my laptop to turn off my wireless adapter, so I turned it back on, I had Internet for a brief period of time, then my Internet stopped. It still says I am connected though,

I know it is not my router,
My drivers are updated
Can anyone help me?

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

It sounds like a winsock problem with showing as connected but won't go anywhere.

Fix Winsock Manually on Windows 7

1. Open up an elevated command line utility and enter:

netsh winsock reset catalog (resets winsock entries)

netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (resets TCP/IP stack)

2. Reboot your PC

If this has no effect can you post a screen shot of your ipconfig/all.
