Hi, I'm having an odd problem with my laptop.  When I try to connect to the internet, windows will not allow me to make any connections.  However, when I drop to DOS and do pings to websites I'm able to ping out.  I am also sending and recieving packets but for some reason Windows isn't recognizing that.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled TCP/IP but that doesn't seem to help.

I have all the settings set to obtain IP address automatically... I'm really stumped.  

And the even stranger thing, is that if I take the laptop to work, everything works fine.

Any suggestions?
