Laptop problems

Okay, I don't know much about computers but I have this really weird problem.

My laptop can connect fine in school. I can access the internet and everything. But at home, I can't. The other computers at home can do it fine but not my laptop. However, when I log in using my school's VPN client, I can access anything from my school's site!

Um, I also tried the troubleshooting thing in MSN Messenger and it tells me that IP, Default gateway, IE's offline setting, Hosts File, DNS and Proxy Server are okay. But when it gets to Key ports, there's a big exclamation mark. It suggests I review my proxy and firewall settings.

The windows firewall is always disabled. I don't know what are proxy settings.

Gaah, I don't know what to do. I'll be calling my ISP tomorrow but I was wondering if any of you have suggestions. T_T Help?
