Macbook Internet Issues

I recently picked up a middle model macbook, and initally, it worked fine. I set it up, connected to my office's wireless connection, and all was well. However, when I took home and tried to connect to the internet here, it didn't work. It will connect to a signal through Airport; the bars are filled. It can be pinged. However, my internet functions do not work. I would appreciate assistance with this.

    Are you sure it has the right key for any WPA you might have?

    edit: No you wouldn't get the bars if that was the case... Can you use another computer to see the router's page? Or go to the page with your macbook?

    hmm, I went to an internet cafe, and had the same problem, while my buddy's macbook pro worked fine.

    Does your office use a proxy? Check your settings in your browser and make sure you have it set to direct connect or whatever you need.

    I get this problem sometimes too.

    Mine is fixedy simply by running the network diagnostic again to set up the connection a second time.

    Has it set a static ip that's not working with these other networks?

    You'll need to provide complete details of your network settings for me to offer any real advice.

    Do you have a clean install of Mac OS X on this Macbook?

    Hmm, it seems that the problem at home was that the entire system wasn't working. However, it is odd that I wasn't able to connect at the internet cafe, especially since my friend connected with his Macbook Pro right beside me.
