The connection between your access point, router, cable modem, and the internet is broken.
Did you follow through with Denish's tutorial?

Internet Troubleshooting Guide

I saw on your one pix that you run norton

There is a section that deals with your problems, but you have to follow it step by step to get there.

  • If ping to Default Gateway and website is successful but you cannot browse any websites:
Temporarily disable/remove your antivirus program and your internet will start working.
Note: You can also boot to safe mode with networking to check the internet connectivity. (Press F8 when you turn on your computer and select Safe mode with networking option to boot the computer to safe mode with networking).

Yes, that is good news!

Just being curious (since I have the same router), was it a matter of going into the set-up page, and changing a few settings or did you have to upgrade the software?
