Try pressing the reset button on the back of the wireless box - mine does this sometimes and doing that then pressing repair on my PC seems to do the trick.

Yep. I have had this problem before - wireless appears to be working but when I click on IE nothing comes up.

Go to your wireless box, press the reset button (I also reset my broadband for good measure as I have ntl broadband through a set top box) and then go back to your PC and reset the wireless there. Mine is a Linksys so all I have to do is click the icon on my bottom tool bar and click repair - that fixes it for me everytime.

Much more simply... click on the "File" menu in Internet Explorer, and check that "Work Offline" is not ticked... (your home page may be cached)
