Default Wifi Issue (Please Help)

My Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant picks up the wifi connection at my home but I cannot use any apps or even just the basic Internet on the phone. The connection shows up as "Excellent" so I can't think of what the problem might be...

Sorry for the noob post. I'm new to mobile phones as it is, never mind Smart phones.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Is there a possibility that there is no network excess despite the connectivity ? It happens to me once in a while , you might want to check the network excess of your Wifi using your computer .

Default Wifi connection

When I get home and switch to wifi (cell data off), I sometimes have to reboot for browser/apps to recognize internet connection through wifi.

Assuming you check settings/wifi and you are CONNECTED, not just picking up the signal...if you get a "check/no internet connection - try reboot
