'Connected' to the internet, but can't get on

I have been having problems recently connecting to wireless access points that aren't at my home. I was in the press box at a cricket ground, and in a hotel where I have the correct password to connect to the internet.

However, once it 'connects' to local and internet and everything seems fine, it isn't and I can't look at the net/messenger/anything that requires an internet connection. However, I can still do local tasks like sharing files and stuff with other computers on the network.

Now I've no idea what I'm doing wrong or what. I have googled my problem, and tried a few solutions, but they didn't seem to help it. The only thing I can work out is that the routers I have problems with appear to be protected by WPA passwords, but the ones I have previously connected to fine (including my own) have been WEP. Maybe that's where my error lies, I don't really know.

Any help would be much appreciated.
