To repair and reset the Windows Vista Winsock

1. Click on Start button.
2. Type Cmd in the Start Search text box.
3. Press Ctrl-Shift-Enter keyboard shortcut to run Command Prompt as Administrator. Allow elevation request.
4. Type netsh winsock reset in the Command Prompt shell, and then press the Enter key.
5. Restart the computer.

Try Internet options.Administration tools.Services and scroll down to DNS Client and make sure it is set to automatic.
Or try.
Command prompt and type in ipconfig /flushdns and press enter on the keyboard,It should tell you DNS cache has been flushed ,if so reboot and see if it makes any difference.
Or try the Fix it on this.

If the problem is with the pc would system restore help... just go back to a date you know it was all OK,

Could it be problem with the actual internet service as "local connection" usually means the PC is "talking" to the router OK.
