Laptop problems connecting to internet

I have a Dell laptop that used to connect to the internet ok. I'd simply connect a network cable into the broadband router and the laptop.

Recently, although the connections tells me that a LAN connection is present, i'm not able to load any internet pages.

I've switched off the wireless switch so that it isn't trying to connect to wireless networks in the neighbourhood - the laptop quite clearly tells me that wireless is turned off.

What make & model is the router? What ISP are you with?

router is binatone broadband adsl 2100
laptop is dell latitude x1

the confusing part is that i didn't used to have any problems with this and i've (knowingly) not changed anything
