Connected to wifi, but no internet.

by 444bandit / February 10, 2014 11:57 AM PST

It shows my wifi signal, and i connect to it, but sometimes, it says that it is connected, but there is no internet access. There is indeed internet access though. I am connected to the same wifi from my phone, and my ipod touch, and they both work perfectly fine with internet. Sometimes, my computer would connect with internet access, but other times it would just connect without internet. Do i need to buy something to fix this. This hasnt happened before.
