The problem is sometime Linux does connect me to the Internet. At the same time I can use Pidgin etc and other Bittorent clients to download distros, but cant browse the Internet.. Another amazing thing is, while I cannt open any other site, Microsoft.com opens in a second...so what could be the issue?
When you are connected to the net, what is the output of the ifconfig, 
route and 'cat /etc/resolv.conf' command?
Are you able to 'dig' domains like google.com, yahoo.com etc.?
If you can 'dig' can you ping to their IP addresses?
Are you using connection sharing or some specific network related
