windows 2003 server can't browse the web

My server is still serving up my website but I cant browse any websites from the server. I can connect to it with remote desktop but cant even ping google.com

It was all working yesterday with no problems.
Any ideas?

Thanks!

Have you double checked to make sure the firewall is not blocking you?

Also, can you ping by IP? (Example: 64.233.167.99 to see if you can ping google.com)

Hope this helps!

Any DNS changes recently?  It sounds like basic networking is operational (you can RDP to it) but DNS resolution might be on the blink (might be why you can't ping google).

Go to the command line on the server and do a NSLookup against www.google.com.  Then do a NSLookup against another server on the same segment (I usually choose a domain controller).  Post the results here.

sounds like you need to change your DNS

also i thought u get a denial of service error if you ping google. try and ping your website and try nslookup as listed above.

if it times out within 2seconds its your DNS.

It's all sorted out now thanks for the help guys...
the problem was that my ISP increased our netspeed and screwed something up on their end...something about reprovisioning the modem for more than one piece of hardware.
