Browsers can't connect to websites after power off

Hello,
Recently, my area had a wind storm, and I lost power for nearly a week. The power is back on now and it seems my computer is not able to browse the web (tried IE and FF), although I am able to play online games such as Counter Strike. My computer was perfectly fine before the power went out. My computer is connected to a Wireless network in the same room through a Netgear router connected to an Insight Broadband cable modem. I am pretty sure this is a problem with just my computer as I am able to browse the internet (and ask this question) on my parents computer and my mom's laptop, which all connect to the same router. I have found that I am also able to ping any website. Also, I am not able to system restore. This has been very troublesome for me for the past week since my power has been back on and I would love to fix it as soon as possible, as it is very inconvenient having to use my parents computer. Thanks to anybody who is willing/able to help!

My computer
Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3
