Wireless problem with laptop

Hello everybody.
My freind has a problem with his presario F500 compaq laptop with Windows 7. There is a connection to the router (can go to router page) but no connection to the internet.
He has tried troubleshooting network connection, rebooting ect.

Any more information needed please ask me.

i'd also like to note my understanding of computers is that of a IT professional so, please, dont be afraid to recommend something hard :)
