You could go to Network Connections, and there you double-click your network connection, and then you:

For vista: Click the button "Resolve Problems" (Or something like that, I'm on a dutch   machine... The button is the button at the bottom right corner, above the close button)

For WinXP: Click the second tab, and there you click the button "Recover" (1st button)

If this doesn't work you can:

  • turn off your Router/Modem/Wireless router
  • Turn it on after 10 sec
  • Watch your PC reconnect
Make sure you restart all browser windows after the reconnect.
