    Glad to hear that you resolved it.

    If you got the time you could help other people that find this thread by telling them how you found out the subnet was set wrong.

    Sure.
    Open Network and Sharing Center. In the middle of the screen is a list - "View Your Active Networks".
    In my case there was only one - my wireless connection.
    - Click on the name of the connection and up pops the 'Status' dialog.
    - Click on "Properties" in the lower part of the screen and
    - in the resulting dialog, locate the "Internet Protocol Version 4" property.
    - Click on this once to highlight it and then
    - click on "Properties".

    You now have two panels. On the top is a panel with three fields. On the bottom is a panel with two fields.

    In the usual case you will want both these panels blank and buttons on for "Obtain IP Address Automatically" and "Obtain DNS Server address automatically."

    There are situations where you might want to specify IP address and/or DNS address but if you don't know why you might then you don't want to.

    In my case I strongly suspect that my VPN software had pushed its DNS to my wireless connection config. In the usual case it would revert that setting but something must have happened to interrupt its process. Not sure about that but will take a look next time I want to use the VPN.

    In retrospect I see that in omitting the VPN in my problem description, I missed an important clue.
