Strange internet connectivity issue...!

Just reformatted about 2 days ago and my computer has contracted a strange problem regarding internet connectivity...

From a fresh reboot my computer is fine, I can browse the web on firefox etc...use MSN, connect to teamspeak. When I load up a game (any game apparently) I can connect to only servers and play normally. When I close the game and load firefox, ie, msn there is no connectivity to the internet and I just get the standard "no internet" error. Teamspeak works fine though.

Some details:

Running zone alarm firewall, virus checker, spam filter etcetc...However I can't see that being the issue, I had that before I reformatted.
Im connected to the internet wirelessly via a D-Link Router.
My wireless card: Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection

I've tried right clicking on the connected and selecting repair and when it (finally) connected it has the yellow '!' and says there are connectivity issues.

If anyone has an idea on what is going on and has a solution or any suggestions i'd be very grateful!

Many thanks,

Matt.
