go to Start > Run > type "cmd" and hit Enter

at the command prompt, type "ipconfig > C:\ipconfig.txt"

Go to your C:\ Drive, and open up the ipconfig.txt file, copy and paste its contents here.

My wireless lan has a problem that I cant fix. I can connect to it and all, but I cant Browse the internet.
This is usually due to a typo in the key or a misconfiguration. I'd try disabling encryption so the connection is unprotected and see if it connects. If it does connect then you've probably mis entered the key and you should generate a new one and try the connection with encryption using the new key.

He can connect to it fine, he just doesn't have internet.

go to start, run and type in cmd
type "ping 192.168.1.1" without the quotes
if that works then type in "ping www.google.com"
let me know if you get responses from google.

The idea that he's connected is unreliable. Wireless connections with misconfigurations or incorrect keys can tell you they're connected when they're not. I've had three of those cases in the last two days.

xxunderlordxx go ahead and try Jackiefrost9's suggestion but if that doesn't work be sure to disable encryption on the router and connect that way.

Well, I see that the DNS was able to resolve the Google Address, so you obviously have some connectivity.

I'd be looking at firewalls here, something odd is going on.
