Comp says it's connected to wireless but I can't get online.

Specs: Windows Vista
Laptop says it's connected to wireless but I can't get online. Each time I can get to the browser, but when I type in a web address it keeps saying it cannot connect with server. I had Norton on it, but now it's showing that Norton hasn't been used since June 2011. I tried uninstalling Norton, so that I can reinstall it, but something won't let me. I was able go in and uninstall another program with no problem though.

Is this a virus that's blocking me? I have another laptop (newer) that's not having any problems.

On the taskbar, at the bottom of the screen, on the right is a network status icon, put your cursor on it, you can click it if you want, does it say it has internet access?

Yes, it does say that it's connected. It's continues to say that there is a connection, occasionally it just says local, but most times local and internet. But it keeps saying that it can't connect with server when I enter a web address.
