    The signal strength indicator is likely indicating the strength of the wi-fi connection to your router rather than the internet connection.

    Which program is saying No Internet Connection?

    Licking it will not have any desirable effects ;)

    You have tried restarting it ? Sometimes I have found that the OS can get screwed and cause say the wireless to misfunction and only a reboot will resolve.

    Is your other equipment working?

    Shutdown/PowerOn with a gap helps 99.99% of the times.
