You keep saying Internet Explorer isn't working, does that mean another web browser does? I would try Mozilla's Firefox
or something to see if that works. If it does go to microsoft.com and get the lastest version of Internet Explorer (that the computer can support) and install it. I seen a problem like this before and all I had to do was re install internet explorer and it worked fine.
You can't ping msn.com, but can you ping anything else? If you cant ping another site, it may be more than just your Internet explorer. Also, you could use "ipconfig /all" on the client computer and make sure it's reciving the information from the Host computer (assuming its using DHCP). Like the right gateway and a IP address that is in range of your settings. I hope some of that helps! If, not post anything new that arises (such as firefox or whatever also isn't working) and I or someone else might beable to help more
EDIT: If another browser does work or you are sure its just the internet explorer that is not working go to microsoft website Internet Explorer
section and download the matching one (depending if you have SP1 or 2) and transfer it to that computer and install it.
