Vista PC connected to network but not internet, ubuntu on same computer can acce


I have a Dell running vista home and it just started having internet problems out of the blue. I'm on a university system so I can still connect to the network and see other computers connected to the hub but can no longer access the internet with any application. My connection is wired and my firewall is off. DHCP is enabled but I'm not getting a response. I also have an ubuntu partition on my computer and it can access both the network and the internet without a problem. I've read many related threads regarding this issue already but none of them seemed to work. What I've tried so far:

1. ipconfig/flushdns.
2. uninstalled ethernet card and scanned for changes to reinstall it.
3. ipconfig/release, ipconfig/renew.

So far nothing has worked. Thanks in advance for any help.
