I just spent 2 days figuring out the same problem, but with a different cause and I'd thought I would post here so others won't waste so much time!

My problem was caused by an automatic McAfee Update on 8/18/12.
Search their site for the details, but the solution was to uninstall and reinstall their security suite.

Tnx jack4rall for Ur complete answer

After doing 4 steps above (if it doesn't work) do this :

Click on Start --> In search bar type ncpa.cpl and press "Enter".
Right click on your Network icon ---> Select "Properties" ---> scroll down
and double click on "Internet Protocol[TCP/IP]", set your "Preferred DNS Server" to 4.2.2.4

When it finished, you should reconnect, the changes will be applied after that ;)
Regards
