?! It's been years since I've touched a Windows machine, but that
sounds like your system is totally b0rk3d. Do you have a firewall
of some sort that might be affecting networking?

Try using basic networking tools like ping, traceroute, telnet, etc.;
if your system crash was extremely ungraceful, you might have an
OS reinstall ahead of you...

Good luck,
