Disconnect from your laptop and try browsing on your phone.

Can you surf?

Yes,can browse on phone no problem.Cant USB tether or connect through wifi.Although laptop shows that I have connection,good signal etc it just wont load pages.Seems it could be a problem with settings on laptop buy I dont know how to change them.

Have you successfully surfed (by other method of connection) with this laptop before?

When connecting your laptop to your phone, see if there're any confirmation needed on your laptop AND phone.

It should be easily connected. I'm posting this while Tethering with my SGS.

Maybe try moving your phone around. I've encountered, sometime, that the 3G/Data signal are not consistent on different sides of the table.
