Default Browsers not connecting to the internet

For some reason, my internet browser no longer connects to the internet.
I know that my computer is still connected because I can access things like AIM, but no browsers (firefox, ie, safari) are actually able to display web pages.

I am using a laptop on a wireless network and I haven't installed any programs recently that would affect this. Any ideas?

(I hope this is the right category to post this under)

If his browser won't connect, it won't display anything.

Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>Reset Internet Explorer Settings>Click Reset Button

The reset button should be on the bottom.

If it is a port issue then the link I gave will work. As for resetting his Internet Expolorer settings, he said it won't work in any browser not just IE.

HTTP addresses go through port 80

HTTPS addresses go through 443

So if port 80 is being blocked by something then it could give him his problem. And AIM doesn't work on port 80 so therefore it would work if this were the case.
