Strange problem; I can connect to the Internet with Firefox, but Internet Explorer can't connect at all. I also can't connect to the Internet with certain programs; Window Help and Support Center says I'm not connected to the Internet, and I can't connect to the store or the update servers in iTunes. Other programs can connect fine; I can use Windows Live Messenger, I can get song information from the Internet in Windows Media Player.

I've attached the HTML file from Network Diagnostics, and below is the Network Diagnostics report from iTunes.

Are you configured for a Local Area Network, because your side of the router is part of a LAN and your machines have to make the connection to the LAN? If you're set up for a WAN you probably won't be able to see it. Firefox has it's own internal network configuration which probably sees the LAN but my guess is Windows isn't configured for the LAN.

Thanks for replying. If that's the case, how would I go about configuring Windows for the LAN?

Just go to Start>Settings, open up your network settings, add a new connection for the LAN, usually you will want to choose DHCP. Have you put your login info in the router? assuming you need to. You can use the Nework setup wizard, it might be easier for a newbie. Just choose LAN when it comes up and DHCP
