I have no idea what happend, i just restarted my computer and when i tried to run firefox it wouldent load, i tried IE and no luck either

But i ran Trillian (My IM client) and it ran fine so did the Itunes Music Store
i used the built in browser in trillian to download Opera ran it, same result as Firefox & IE

I think this trillian browser uses IE as the backbone , so there should be no reason why IE doesnt work

(ps: all browsers work fine on my Linux partition)

Im Running

Windows Xp Pro CORP sp2

pps ( Im Also Running on a lan with my Imac, Imac runs internet fine, internet sharing is on, and i've tried setting up a home network and restarting aswell)

Before you can ping a web site by name, make sure you can ping a site by IP address. There can still be DNS issues. This helps determine where the problem is.

What can you ping? The router, other local computers.

If you can't ping any internal IP addresses then like you won't be able to ping any external ones either.

Are you using known working components. Just because it worked yesterday is no guarantee.

Have you tried resetting the IP stack:

To do this with XP,
you need to run a small script:

netsh int ip reset [ log_file_name ]

the log_file_name needs to be specified.

e.g.
netsh int ip reset ip_reset.txt

You can also try just cut and pasting the text in at Start / Run

Then you should see a black window up of for a few seconds and then close again?

But again, if you can't ping a local IP address, you likely are not going to be able to get to the Internet.

At this point, there is also no certainty that even the network card is working.
