Troubleshooting: Help my sister's new laptop connect to the network. (Or rather, it's connected. Help her get to the WWW.)

We have a router set up with WEP encryption. We connected with the right key, and everything says there's no problem.
What's more, there is definitely a connection. When I ping yahoo.com, I get a response. Norton liveupdate was able to connect and download all its updates. Windows managed to get its genuine advantage installed and running just fine.
But open up a browser, and all you get is an error message saying the page couldn't be loaded. This is true on both IE and [some other firefox based, but not firefox browser. Maybe Netscape or AOL].
