OK,

First...Make sure that the internet adapter is set to a STATIC ADDRESS...
Then, AFTER making the connection, set your DNS to something nonsensical...like 192.168.111.111...If you are using DHCP the DNS settings may update...so do not skip the first step...

IF you still are having issues...Flush your DNS cache...
