    you didn't mention your browser (IE,FF,Opera), but go to Tools:Options
    and empty the cache; quit the browser.

    get a cmd prompt; enter ping $yourISP {eg}
    you must get some timing info and not get a series of timeouts

    launch your browser and type in the url HTTP://www.$yourISP/
    you must get the home page of the ISP.
    {I always use my ISP as the browser default home page, as it tells me if I
    have connectivity to at least my ISP :) } When this works and other sites
    don't, then it's a problem upstream from your ISP.

    Sometime I find it helpfull to get a cmd prompt and use
    ping -n 1000 -w 5000 $yourISP

    this gets the DNS charged-up and running and helps avoid DNS lookup errors,
    which always showup as 'Page Not Found'
