I tried your suggestion but it didn't help.
Under 'System Preferences' > 'Network' and under 'AirPort' it says "Self-Assigned IP" when it is connected to my wireless network.
It's weird, just when I open Safari it says "You are not connected to the internet" and it doesn't matter what page I try to open it says the same thing as soon as I press Enter (to load new page). It doesn't seem that it even tries to "load" the page. Everything is so quick..
BUT...the weird thing is that if I connect to my neighbors network (which don't have a password) everything works just fine. Then I can open any page on Safari and in network preferences under AirPort it says "Connected." It might look that it is my networks fault but once again, my network works fine on my PC and iPod Touch and IT USED to work on my MacBook but I have no idea what happened and it doesn't work now..

thats why i asked that question... even tho it is self assigned your IP is still displayed... start a new location and manually enter in an IP address for your network as well as the DNS entry...
you writing you message on a PC just proves that your apple laptop configuration is incorrect and your network and internet are fine...
network preferences, beside status.. should say
Airport is connect to 'home network SSID' and has the IP address (example) 192.168.1.102
i would start a new location for home:
open network preferences, press locations... edit locations, press add, name it 'home' , when home is selected go to advanced, TCP/IP tab, Configure IPv4 set to manually, enter your ip, subnet, router addresses, IPv6 can stay automatically.
click DNS tab, press add, then enter your DNS address (router in most cases), then say ok and then apply...
Here are some screenshots below:
Check if you are able to connect to the network throught Ethernet. if that works, then it could be a problem with your wifi.....
Second, try to enter the password for ur Wifi Connection again, and see that the settings are the same as with your network environ (i.e if the Security is WEP, then you should also have the same). It happens if you sometime reset your network/router and change your password. Also, try to add ur wifi network manually, by going to System Preferences/Network/Advanced Settings.
It shows connected, coz it is connected to your Router.
Ok, I tried turning off AirPort and restarting my router and modem and then turning on the AirPort and connecting to my network again using MAc but it's the same thing..didn't work (works fine on PC).
I wasn't sure what you suggested to do...I didn't understand it well enough..
I think I will end up going to Apple Store tomorrow and asking them for help (Genius Bar)....
Oh, i meant to connect your macbook to your Router directly using an Ethernet Cable, to see if the internet comes up.
Secondly, in System Preferences/Network, you get the 'Advanced" option. Go to your advanced settings and in the 'Airport" tab, just see the network name and security. if your network is "Security enabled" then it should show your Security Level.
Now go to TCP/IP and set the Configure IPV4 to "Using DHCP" and save your settings.
Come back to your "Airport", click on the "+" sign at the bottom, and then add your network manually giving the right "Security Option" and your passkey. Save your settings, and then connect to your network again (might require a restart too).
PS: Going to apple store is the best thing if none of these works.
