Hello vodevil and welcome to Seven Forums.

I had a similar situation last year. Look through this previous thread and try resetting your winsock protocol. Per Microsoft, this protocol is used by Windows to communicate with other computers and to access resources on the Internet, such as e-mail and Web sites. You could also try flushing your DNS cache as suggested by Forum member Jacee. Ultimately I had to get a different brand DSL modem to correct the problem because my older modem wasn't 100% Windows 7 compatible.
