That entry is there by default!  By removing it in the first place you 
effectively broke your own networking.

I was able to reproduce the behavior on my notebook by editing my 
system32\drivers\etc\hosts file (commenting out the localhost line) and 
turning off my wireless adapter.  If either the line in the hosts file 
or the adapter are on, then it works properly.

Conclusion:  Leave the default entry in your hosts file alone.  AFAIK 
even unix machines have a hosts file with the localhost entry in them, 
and it is required for proper operation of the machine.
