Are you able to ping external sites or IP address. Do you need to setup change any proxy settings on your client?

Have you tried to turn off the Automaticaly detect settings for your internet connection?? It's Under Control Panel /Internet Options / Connections / Lan Settings sometimes switching that off will allow you to connect. If not, what type of LAN / Internet Conneciton do you have ?

I assume not firewall?

You say you "lost It" do you know if any thing changed?

I am not able to ping external sites but I am able to ping all internal addresses. Also my pc is a dual boot pc and I am able to access the Internet from Linux.

I think it might be something with the sockets

Is the IP of your Linux boot and that of the Windows the same ?

What is between you and the gateway ?

Any firewall, software of hardware?

Are you using DHCP ?

Are you using a W2K Server on the network?

Apparently the problem is to do with the dns. We were attacked by an email virus last week and there are still a few lingering problems...

well thats what they told me anyway..
