My internet is conencted and working perfectly (I am using it right now), however my applications that use/require internet say that my internet is not connected. Applications like Sims 2 and iwin game portal claim that they cannot connect to the internet, even though I can open up my Firefox and browse as normally. It's really irritating, I've tried unplugging internet, restarting my computer then plugging it back in again but that didn't work.

what firewall do you have or have you had on the P|C
sounds like the firewall is blocking
If you have had Norton , mcafee etc demo versions installed they can cause issues like this - even if uninstalled , residue can still block
