Also in your internet options check to make sure it is not set to dial up for a connection, it should never dial a connection. this caused an issue for me. Try to ping some site like msn.com from a command line try to ping anything with a web address is you know the IP of a site use it. Check your WINIPCFG to see if you even have an IP address and you should probably be set to DHCP if you are not on a LAN with other systems so you can recieve an IP from your ISP.
