unable to connec to internet in Windows 7

Hi - a few days back, I installed W7, build 7057. This is on my Dell Laptop with 2GB Ram. I am able to connect to the internet without any problems at home (using a Lilksys wirless router). But at office, W7 connects to the network, I get an IP from te DHCP server, I am able to get my mails through the exchange server. But the problem is that I am not able to connect to the internet!!!

I have released my IPs and flushed the DNS cache, renewed the IP, but at the end, no internet... At home in my wireless network, all is fine!!!

Any help would be appreciated...

Windows 7 Professional x64

As I recall.....I had some strange problems with build 7057. The problem went away in 7068, 7077, and RC1. If you can get the RC I would try that. They were making internal changes in these builds and 7077 and the RC are a breeze in connecting and networking. I hope you can get your hands on the RC and this helps. The "official" RC comes out today (for technet and msdn subscribers) you may wait and get this copy just to be safe. Next Tuesday we can download it from what I understand.
