If you select your e-mail, does that connect?

Have you deleted any files or changed anything in your internet files recently?

Can you get to any Web pages at all? if not and you use a Wireless Router turn the Router of with the switch at the back, it may be a button. Restart Router and try it

Disable any Running Firewall to see if thats the Problem, My bet is Windows Firewall in Control Panel under Security

If its a Router as I said above, Have you tried turning the router off with the button at the back of the Router then back on. Give it time to reconnect
