Default cant connect to internet

I am working on a comp that says it is connected at 100 Mbps.
But wont open any websites. apparently the computer screwed up a few days ago in a storm. But if it is showing that it is connected then shouldnt it be?? Very strange. Any ideas?
Thanks.

first try to open the dos prompt and try to ping www.yahoo.com or something and if that doesnt work then reset the modem and if that still doesnt work the modem is bad and just have her call the ISP for a replacement. could be the internet card itself too but try the modem first since that will be free anyways.

Try a system restore at a piont before the storm, on the off chance the settings got screwed up.
