Limited or no connectivity to internet

Right so all of a sudden my laptop won't let me get onto the internet as it says ''limited or no connectivity''.

I use a wireless network which is plugged into virgin media cable modem and all of my friends in this house can still access the internet wirelessly.

I can connect to the wireless network fine and the signal strength is excellent but I can't get online unless I plug a ethernet cable directly from my laptop to the wireless router.

I haven't recently (to my knowledge) installed the XP service pack 2 so I don't know if this is an issue.

The only thing that seems to be different with my computer now is that everytime I turn it on I get a message from Intel Active Management technology saying:

Intel AMT status could not be retrieved from the atchksrv service for 60 seconds. Please make sure the service is running.

And then a message saying that the status is disabled.

But I'm not sure if this is anything to do with the internet.

Any help would be great! Thanks
