I've used apps that do things on the internet like download updates 
automatically.  I know nothiing of a network setup, maybe you have a dll 
missing or unsupported function in your app.  WINE is not an emulator 
and does not create network connections.  It translates between win32 
binaries and unix.  What you describe sounds like vmware or something 
that is not configured.
