I'm glad you didn't give any specs on whether it is a laptop or PC, also the way you are connecting via wireless, ethernet etc...because that would save us lots of guesswork. You must have lots of time ;-)

if you are using ethernet at home, try unplugging your router for 30 secs and then plug it back in. That should recycle it and it may work. If that doesn't work you may have to contact your internet provider and they should fix it at their end,
