Wireless connected, but no internet

Specs: Windows 7
We bought a new Asus Netbook for son. I set it up Sunday and it was connected to the internet, did some browsing, downloaded NetNanny. That's it. We gave it to him for his birthday today, and I cannot get the internet to work. There's a laptop and a PC connected to the router, so I know it's not the network. Also, we didn't change anything - why would it stop working. The Netbook does show a lower signal strength than the older laptop, but it says connected and the Windows diagnostics are no help.

Here's what Ipconfig says:

Windows IP Configuration
Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Link-local IPv6 Address. . . . . : fe80::b59b:978c:b5d2:5e66%12
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :
Subnet Mask. . . . . . . . . . . :
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . :

etc...Any ideas??

Tried ipconfig release, ipconfig renew - no help.

Using Windows 7, when I click on the Wireless connection, it says Currently connected to: (our network) Internet access

(Our network).....Connected, with 3/5 bars green

Well I would try and ping the default gateway address since thats your ticket to ride the internet. If you get the 4 replies back, then perhaps a proxy has been set up in the browsers connection and check to makes sure the under Networks Connections and File sharing, Manage wireless networks... under the tcp/ip v4 and v6 click for properties and then check to make sure the dns is set to obtain an address automatically, and that nothing has changed the netbook settings. To me it seems that the netbook is getting a valid IP from the router. Start by do typing this at a command prompt
ping that sends for packets, if they come back see above, check the browser connection settings.
