Just a thought....

Do you have encryption on your wireless router? If so, you need to plug the WEP password into your iPhone.

Assuming you have successfuly and properly connected to the WiFi router (if its secured) it sounds like the notorious DNS issue.

Try entering this as in Safari's address bar:
http://64.233.187.99

This is just the IP address of Google.com, but it bypasses DNS. If it brings up Google the issue is DNS.

If it doesn't bring up Google then you probably have another issue and will need to describe in more detail how you have things set up.

First verify it is a DNS issue by trying Google via IP address (see post above).

Sometimes my router does that for some reason. I get full bars but it doesn't connect. All I do is disconnect the modem and router for about a minute and that always fixes my problem. Give it a try, hope it works for you.
