Can you ping out by IP? Try running 'ping' from the command prompt and see if you get a response. If so, check your DNS settings.

I've been seeing the proxy settings in both Firefox and IE changing somehow, seemingly on their own. I'd check that also.

Make sure proxy server is disabled in both of the following locations:

Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections tab > LAN Settings > Proxy Server


Firefox > Tools > Options > Advanced tab > Network > Settings...
