External Programs Cannot Connect to Internet

I recently changed my internet connection method from wireless to LAN - both are cable modem speeds.

However, now, programs such as AVG (or any other external program) cannot connect through the Internet. I can browse the Internet perfectly through a browser, but it does not work for other applications.

The error will be something akin to "Cannot connect to server" or some other similar message of non-connectivity.

I tried excepting them from Windows Firewall (I don't use any other firewall) and then turning off the firewall entirely, but both of those did not work.

How can I remedy this?

Thanks in advance.

If you look in the AVG log it may clue us in to something thats causing the error. For now, go to Start -> Run ->type: cmd
Then hit enter
Type in the box: ipconfig/all >c:\ipconfig.txt
Go to My Computer -> C:\
Open ipconfig.txt
Paste the contents here.

Thanks
