Can you add some more details? How do you access the internet? What exactly isn't working? What error messages do you get?

This Mepis thread is a couple of years old, but I think it has some good suggestions in it.

Also, during the boot up, press Esc or F2 (whatever it is that gets you in verbose mode--where all sorts of text fly up the screen instead of just a pyramid with a horizontal bar). Make a note of anything that "fails" during the boot up process. Compare this with when you boot from the live CD.
