Are the lights on your NIC on? Can you log onto the network? Can you see the Network in Network Neighborhood? Give us a little more detail please.

Some Suggestions:
1. Check patch cable
2. make sure drop is hot
3. release & renew your ip configuration
4. check NIC in device manager

W/O knowing what kind of proxy your using it is a bit difficult to help but try these suggestions...

1. Bang head against wall.
2. go to dos (start, run, cmd then enter) and ping do you get a reply?

If reply - then try to browse to the site via --> if you see the site then this is most likely a setting with the proxy itself blocking your mac address or ip address...

If no reply then check cables, bang head once again. if using Active Directory make sure the PC is not in an OU that will not allow port 80 traffic.

go to tools>internet options>>connection tab>Lan settings button uncheck "use a proxy server for your lan" click ok, THEN apply and ok. Now can you go to the internet? If so then you got a problem with proxy setup. Are you running DHCP? If not check gateway address.
