Wireless connection OK but no access to Internet

I'm using a Netgear DG834G router to access ADSL (ISP provider Telstra). I have a valid wireless connection, however I can't access anything on the Internet - Internet Explorer returns message: "The page cannot be displayed"

My IE settings (LAN settings) are all un-ticked.

What is frustrating me is that it works when I come back from work (I'm using my work laptop), and I encounter the problem the next day after I closed the computer or it shut down because the battery ran empty - it seems as if the connection need some sort of reset.
I tried ipconfig /renew, no success.

Any help welcomed!

After searching on several forums I did some other tests: I can ping localhost 127.0.0.1 (get the 4 replies) and also 216.92.56.121 (not sure what this web site is) but get same error message
"the page cannot be displayed" when I try to access click here from IE.
