laptop wireless connection

Grateful for your help - I have successfully set up my BT Home Hub, but I cannot connect to the web from my laptop. The task bar shows the connection is "excellent" but my browser stays offline. Am I missing a stage of the process?

I am sure this is so simple I'll kick myself, but I can't think of what to try next.

Wouldn't connect at all with wrong security key , try opening your browser and see if it is set to work "online" then go to tools/options / connections ( IE 7 ) or Advanced ( Firefox ) and make sure that " Never dial a connection " is ticked ( IE ) or Network / Settings / tick " Direct connection " ( Firefox ) , try those for now ...
