How about rolling back the network controller driver. I have had to do this a few times. Windows will get it working then Windows Update (or me trying to update the network controller) will update to one that does not work.

It's something to look into. Good luck

Are you connected to a wireless router? I have found that if you are connected to a wireless router and not directly into your modem this will mess with your connections sometimes. I had the same problem and all I did was unplug the router and plug it back in and switched the port on the back and ever since I did that I have had no problems, just something to try.
