Just because your wireless says 100% signal strength does not necessarily mean you're connected to the internet. The wireless signal is merely travelling between the laptop and the router.
100% just means that signal strength between laptop and router is excellent. It gives no indication of what's happening at the DSL/cable side of the router.

Check the status lights on the router to confirm that you do indeed have an internet connection at the router. If not, that's what you need to be fixing, not your wireless.

If all looks ok at the router end, try rebooting the laptop. Sometimes it loses the connection even though the wireless signal is still up.
