Default Skype works Browsers dont. Help!

Ok so here's the deal. My laptop (a Lenovo Thinkpad E520) has never had a problem connecting to wifi hot spots until i tried to get on my school's wifi today.

It is the strangest problem where it say i'm connected and Skype works but I can't use ANY of my browsers! I used all 3 of the browsers (Chrome, Firefox, and IE) i have installed and each one gave me the error when a page can't load.

I tried restarting my computer, doing the ipconfig procedure in the command prompt and i even tried turning it off and turning it back on. Please Help!

Does this only happen at the school? If so, there might be a proxy server setting. You could check with the network administrator.
