Windows server 2008 will not connect to internet

We have a server 2008 standard with sp2. This was installed at the beginning of February.
A few days ago we lost internet connection on this machine.
It's still available on the local net.
I can ping outside addresses like www.google.com or just ip adressess.
Sometimes the network and sharing shows that internet is available, though when i try to browse it's not working.

This is really frustrating. All the drivers for this machine (HP DL380 G6) is updated and are the same version as last week when everything worked fine!

I have not done anything with the configuration on this machine.
I have also tried different network cards, switches cables etc. Still the same problem.

I have done some searching and there seems to be an issue on some installations of 2008 but none of the solutions I have found works for me.

Anyone have any idea????
