Can you please give the output of:

sudo lshw -C network; ifconfig; sudo iwlist scan

Thanks

Is the network applet prompting as if you are connected?

If it shows connected and still cannot browse then you are a victim of a known Karmic bug. There are several bug reports on network problem -

    * Bug #417759
    * Bug #436092
    * Bug #436815
    * Bug #453832
    * Bug #456038

    * Bug #469435
    * Bug #474008
    * Bug #495684
    * Bug #497278

You could install wicd to sidestep the bug, personally I think wicd is way better but does not do 3G or VPN

Can you help with this problem?
