Ok this is my problem. Yesterday I went to this LAN Party (it was fun nothing like playing starcraft drunk) and they had to set something up so I would have an IP Adress now since I have been home I cannot get it to work properly I can't get access to the internet.
Run the connection wizard again. If you setup yourself with a static IP at the party and your LAN at home is Dynamic you will have to convert back to DHCP. Did you change your workgroup also? If so you will need to switch back.
Could you give a little info on your Home LAN?
If you don't know you are probilily on Dynamic(DHCP). Which means your router does all the work Got to Start>My Network places (right click)>Properties>LAN (right click)>Properties> Open TCP/IP and set the IP address field to "Obtain Automaticly" in the DNS field also set to "Obtain Automaticly". Leave the rest alone.
