From what I've read this is most likely a driver problem. You should go to the manufacture of your laptop's website to obtain the latest drivers.

Do not go by what it says about the driver in Device Manager.

so driver and routing is fine... you can find local subnet and ping some sites on internet... correct?

ping 74.125.132.94 works? (it's www.google.nl)

when wired: in command prompt
Code:
nslookup
when wireless: in command prompt
Code:
nslookup
