Wifi on my laptop suddenly stopped working. It has full bars but I cannot access any websites in any browser (Chrome/Firefox). I also cannot access itunes store. I keep seeing a yellow exclamation mark appear on my wifi signal then it vanishes by itself.

My laptop is the only thing having these issues.

Any ideas on what it could be

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector.

If you need help with that, see TSG Posting a Screenshot.

If running Windows Vista or Windows 7, the built-in Snipping Tool is useful for screenshots.

--------------------------------------------

Next let's see this:

Hold the Windows logo key and press R.

In the Run box that appears, type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary, use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Windows 7 sometimes struggles with WEP. Why aren't you using WPA or WPA2?

I was able to resolve this issue. I rolled back a driver update on Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6250 AGN and that fixed it.
