My partners latop a Samsung is having issues connecting. Well the wireless connects fine, says there is a connection to the internet, but when trying to browse, nothing happens. 

ipconfig /all shows all the correct info. I can ping sites, including the router address.  Just can't browse

Ideas why not?

If you can ping domains then you have a connection to the internet and it won't be a DNS issue.

It's got to be a browser issue then, what browser are you using?
