wireless: good signal, but no internet...what's up?

My wireless internet hasn't had any problems at all until yesterday. When the problem started I hadn't made any changes to my computer at all (no new software... etc). Now, all of a sudden i have good... or even excellent signal strength but i get the "no page to display" in my browser. i also cant use any applications (such as aim) that use the internet! why wouldn't this have happened all of a sudden? and what can i do to fix it? i've been on the phone with the HP support people for two hours... and nothing has helped. they basically told me that it was either a problem with my router or my computer, they weren't sure. (OH WOW I COULDNT HAVE FIGURED THAT OUT ON MY OWN!!). anyways they had me do all of the ipconfig renew release... etc. things. that didn't help. the only thing that i noticed that looked a little weird was when i did ipconfig /all it said "disabled" by the Netbios over tcpip. I don't really even know what that means.. but maybe it has something to do with it. I've already disabled all the firewall settings, etc. and i have no idea what else to do!! any help would be appreciated because this is driving me crazy! thanks.
