Wifi on but no internet connection? MB pro
I have a Macbook pro OSX version 10.6.8. Recently my brother bought an ethernet cable and connected it to his Xbox for XBoxlive. Soon after, my internet stopped working. AirPort says that I am still connected to my Wifi network, but I can't search the web. Additionally, the wifi symbol on the top right corner of my screen has an exclamation mark on it. My router is a Westell Versalink 327W Model# D90-327W15-06.
On my iPhone4, I am connected to Wi-fi on the same router, and I'm able to access the internet (going on any website).
These are the resolutions that I tried.
-Rebooting the router
-Restarting my MB
-Manually removing and re-adding the IP address
-Manually deleting and re-adding the IPv4 Address, Subnet Mask and Router.
-Manually deleting and re-adding the DNS server and Search Domains.
-Removing ethernet cable from xbox and from router
How can I fix this "wifi on, but no internet" problem?

This happened to me today after I had plugged my Ethernet into an Airport Express to configure it.
Just add a "new" network, choose your router and re-enter the password. That's what worked for me.

Network settings: Orange
I might have to call my ISP and see what's going on.

I notice that turning Wi-Fi off and turning it on again fixes the problem.
However, the problem resumes the minute you wake the computer from standby/sleep.
Very irritating problem.

self assigned IP
OK, had the same problem, here my fix:
Check Keychain and delete the Network you want to connect to. Then start again and hopefully it will work without any problm

Just figured it out....it's the Airport Password
Was having similar problems to the above thread. Wifi Network was showing it was connected but I could not connect to Internet. Airport Extreme was flashing AMBER.
Modem signal was fine.
Network Prefs showed:
Airport Settings: Green
Network Settings: Green
After checking with ISP and connecting to the internet via Ethernet my ISP told me that there was something wrong with my wireless router (the Airport Extreme).
I ran Airport Utility and and it came back reporting problems.
(IMPORTANT: A few days earlier I had re-set my email password.)
As soon as I updated my "new" password in the Airport Utility...the airport restarted and I was good to go.
It was as simple as entering my new password!!
Hope that helps!!
