Your DNS is probably not working. Since you've not described your network infrastructure, that's the best I can do. –  user3463 May 28 '12 at 20:05

What Internet connection do you have? Are you using a router or is this at work? How long has this problem been happening? What is new in your environment? –  user3463 May 28 '12 at 20:56

I suspect any one of below scenario might caused,

• You might have working on proxy servers
• Your network got disconnected

Try below steps to make it working:-

• Shutdown your laptop
• Switch off modem and router
• Give some 2 minutes gap
• Start modem and router
• Once connected, Switch On the laptop
• Try accessing www.google.com

issue was related to DNS Server. I just executed following commands and it was working again:

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew


after restart my internet was working properly.
