Here's what worked for m:

1. I turned off the network on my computer.

2. Turned off the router.

3.After 20 seconds, I turned on the network on my computer.

4. Then after 20 seconds, I turned on the router.

That's all I did and it worked!

Oh... the wonders of a on/off switch!!!!!!
However, I would have thought that this would have been tried before users had posted on the forum. After all most troubleshooting help & support guides suggest this fix.

well i bought this laptop cause i needed a computer for on the road cause i goto company's and design websites for them right there in front of them and with them then i goto my house and use my normal computer running XP to finish it... and the laptop came with Vista....

i did the test on the computer to see if its capable of running vista, and it gave me a 3.. and i must say this computer is slow as death... but it doest what i need it to do...

i downloaded a spyware thing the other day. cant remember the name of it though, but it deleted all the spyware stuff on my computer and i haven't had the problem of the IE not working since... it gets slow at times, but other then that it hasnt stopped... so i dont know if that was the problem?

This is obviously not the same problem as the one reported by Nzealander and me. In your case it was the router or network card.

I tried this and a lot of other things, but only a reboot solves the problem for me, just like Nzealander.

Our problem is (and this is double-triple checked):
- Not in the router (even removed it, so this is indisputable)
- Only in browsers (MSIE and Firefox) and sometimes Windows Mail + Windows Live Messenger, i.e. applications using Windows standard web library
- All other applications are unaffected
- The only remedy is to reboot (hibernate+restart etc. does not work)

And to re-iterate the problem and symptoms:
After the system has been on for a while, browsing will suddenly stop in both IE and Firefox but IM will continue to work. Browser will indicate website found, waiting for reply and will wait but never show the page cannot be displayed. Unable to access 192.168.0.1 from a browser. Only a reboot fixes the problem and it comes back after some time.
