Can you wget a page?
in your terminal:
Should create a file called "Home" in your local directory.
If this works, then I would say you have a browser configuration issue.
If that does not work then I would say you have some type of
external network issue. (proxy?, corporate security, aggressive firewall
rules, etc). If that is the case, take your laptop to the nearest free
wifi and try it out there. There could be some strange interaction
between your network setup and the way the the browse activity works.
