...and my employer's IT guy says this is a verizon issue, since the laptop's wireless and internet work fine over my employer's networks...

Alrighty then. As a test, open up a web browser on your PC, and instead of enter in www.google.com , enter in one of the IP addresses for Google's website and see what comes up. This will take DNS out of the equation, and should be nothing more than a direct connection.

 

You can try 74.125.115.105 , which does bring up Google's homepage when I enter in that address.
