call the cable company and tell them to troubleshoot?

have you rebooted your dsl/cable device?

what about your dns server? see fi those have changed. I would first start out rebooting the cable modem, then the pc, but I hope you have already done that.

turn off all the proxy settings using Control Panel/Internet Settings. You dont need them for cable if its comcast. I dont think any of them require it.

You shouldnt need those. Hell I don't even load their official software and as far as their tech support knows my pc is directly connected to my cable modem.
