No internet connection but

Hi, I have a problem in my office network some computers has Internet connection but others only local access, I need help working out a solution.

I Have in my network

1.- Router Linksys BEFW11S4 V2 Firmware 1.45.10 Apr 15 2004 no active WIFI .
2.- 24 port Switch rack mount attached to the linksys router
3.- DSL router\modem attached to the router DSL port
4.- Belkin Wireless router configured as Access point
5.- Netgear Wireless Print Server WGPS606
6.- 2 Linux PC (server & workstation) wire connected
7.- 3 Win XP desktop pc wire connected
8.- 2 Win XP pc attached to WGPS606 LAN ports
9.- 1 Win XP laptop Wifi Connected.

All was working fine until 8 of July, the next morning 2 Win XP desktop wired computers didn`t surf the net but has local network, they can access the server browse others pc but can`t surf or download any email.

I began testing the cables with a network tester, the cables are fine in both computers, change the switch port in case it was faulty, reset the router, update the firmware, turn everything off and boot again, nothing seem to work, I still have no internet connection.

Something odd is that I can ping in dos command line any web page, like and have good response, also ping DNS, Router IP address all work fine, but can browse internet in firefox, IE7 or seamonkey

Also check for virus and other software problems nothing happened.

All my others computers works fine, even the ones wired to the same switch.

What can I do to solve this, any help will be appreciated

Disables this access? Zone Alarm has issued an update but that's not in your list.
