no problem at this end. I was actually out of the office doing things :)

it means your dns pointer ie to the gateway is invalid. You have internet access but without name resolution you don't have a way to resolve a url to a ip address which results in no internet.

It can also mean you are not connected to your dads wifi but a neighbor.

if you type in the gateway ip do you get your dads router? Can you logon to it? This will confirm you are on the right router.

Next thing to try is give your wifi a static ip at
192.168.1.254
255.255.255.0 subnet mask
192.168.1.1 gateway
8.8.8.8 dns [its google's public dns server]

see if you can run the tracert yahoo.com command then.

get to vista network and sharing center via control panel
left pane click on manage network connections
right mouse click on the wifi card and go to properties
then go to tcp/ip v4 properties
click on use this address and type in the info I gave you.
save, exit, reboot and logon the wireless again.
