    Cant browse internet using wifi even though connected


    Using inspiron 5200 with windows 8, internet is showing that it is connected on the taskbar, is sending/receiving information. Browser is not working. Was working fine until I connected directly to the modem instead of wireless, now cannot access internet using any browser. When I open windows mobility center the icon for wireless network is missing. Any help?

    Was it working when wired and now not working wireless? Or not working either way?
