    I think it's a IPv6.0 related issue, but do not know this for sure...
    I had exactely the same problem; firefox ok, ie8 not...
    Try Restart in safemode with network (press F8 upon restart) Internet
    Explorer.. Now a message box should appear, press "YES". Restart Internet
    Explorer to check if it is working...
    Restart PC in normal mode.
    I am sure there are other sollutions to this
