Are you a BT broadband user?

How many firewalls do you have.Sometime turning them off does not help.I take it you are using a Wireless Router.What Firewalls do you have.You could try.Control panel.Network connections and right click local area connection and press repair.or control panel.Administrative Tools.Services,And scroll down to DNS Client and make sure it is set to automatic.
