Firewall?

What about other traffic like e-mail, chat or similar to see if it's everything or just Internet Explorer?

If Norton Internet Security is installed, Symantec Proxy Service, which is part of it, can go AWOL. You wont go anywhere, if this has stopped.

Check Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services/Symantec Service.

Under General make sure its on Automatic and under this started

If Service Status is stopped. Restart. If it continues to stop go above then
Recovery. Change the top 3 options to restart the service, then OK.
