Unable to connect to internet but can connect to Skype

I am having trouble connecting my NEC laptop to the internet via a NETGEAR wireless router.

It was working fine a couple of weeks ago, but now it only connects to Skype. I cannot connect to the internet via Internet Explorer, SeaMonkey or Outlook.

My work laptop connects via the same wireless router to everything with no problem.

I tried windows restore back to a date when it was working, but that did not resolve the problem.

I compared all the wireless settings between laptops, but that did not resolve the problem.

Has anyone got any ideas what might be wrong?

Do you start Skype before trying to access the Internet?

Sounds like DNS problem, try rebooting your modem, I occasionally get this, some computers work ok and then 1 does not, usually when I have been connecting, disconnecting other computers quickly.
