    The wired connection appears to be connected directly to a public IP address, and the wireless appears to be connected to a router of some sort. I'm going to guess that the broadband modem is plugged into one of the router's LAN ports and not the WAN/Internet port on the router, which would fit the symptoms I see here.

    i had unplug my wireless router and the wireless connection is still say connected with excellent signal. Is there something wrong with my computer? Is that why i'm not able to access into the internet.

    If your wireless router is unplugged you must be connected to somebody else's wireless signal. If you are still using the router's default SSID change it to something unique so that you can tell whether you connect to your network or your neighbor's.

    And you still have to check where the cable is plugged in. :)
