Wireless Network Problem

Ive been having problems with the Wireless connection on my laptop for a while now. Basically even though the signal strength is shown as excellent and hovering over the little monitor in notification area shows "Internet access" i cannot connect to the Internet via WiFi. The strange thing is when i connect an Ethernet cable the signal strength on the bottom goes up and i get Internet access but the computer seems to think its got a wireless connection, even though its actually a wired connection. Ive already tried the following

Driver Update Windows Update AntiVirus/Malware Scan Firewall/Anti Virus Off Ethernet Connection Disabled and Enabled Changed router channel reset wep key numerous times Network Scan (no problems found)

The Laptop's IPv4 address cannot be 192.168.0.1 as that is the address of the Router and Default Gateway.

Check in the Local Area Connection's Properties (the wired adapter) to ensure that it hasn't been Shared. Setting it as shared, by ticking the box to "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection" would give the Wireless Network Connection the address 192.168.0.1
