My first cause of action would be to Open a command prompt and do:

nslookup www.trickery.net

If that comes back with:
Non-authoritative answer:
Name: www.trickery.net
Address: 83.170.82.38

Then DNS is working.
Just tried. That's exactly what I get.

Then, also in command prompt try:
tracert www.trickery.net

If after several hops it finally gets to 83.170.82.38 then we know it has worked ok.

This shows that the machine is working on t'internet and that there is a proxy or browser issue.
Just tried that. After 8 hops it gets to 83.170.82.38.

Proxy or browser issue...So, ultimately, what does that mean?


Hang on...just opened firefox...google homepage loads...nothing else though.
Restarted firefox, nothing.

What does that mean?

Also, I reset the router to factory settings earlier. After a panicked couple of minutes trying to get this laptop back online, I see that the problem still remains on the wired PC.

What is going on?
