Can't connect to the internet

We're running a win2003 network with win xp workstations. In trying to free up space on the C drive of our server, I deleted some window components in disk cleanup.  I think I  have reinstalled all the deleted files but maybe not.  I can ping our IP address from a remote location, home, and can connect to my office computer from home using Remote Desktop.  I cannot connect to the internet or send/receive email from my office computer.  From my office workstation I can ping the server and the Soho router.  When I ping our IP address, 67.123.876.45, the reply comes from the server, 192.168.111.1!  What can I check?  

Thanks for your help and interest.

Thanks for your fast response.  I ran ipconfig /all but short of printing it to the screen, how else can I get it to you?  If it makes a difference, the gateway address is the router, 192.168.111.1.  I've got the ipconfig results saved in a word document.

It turns out that we should have been paying more attention to my original issue which was deleting some windows components.  It turns out I removed and didn't reinstall the DCHP and DNS servers.  These have been reinstalled and we're up and running.

Thanks for your help.

BRgds.
