    it means that its connected to your wireless modem but its not actually connected to the internet.

    you have a few options you can try

    1.) go to your modem hold the on/off button for 10 seconds then turn it off and switch it back on. then try reconnecting on laptop

    2.) restart your laptop.

    it happens to me all the time. 1.) USUALLY works.
