Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Am I mistaken that all other P.C are working fine connecting and that 1 particular P.C is having Problem connecting????So I would then say that the problem may be within that particular P.C. if im correct….
-Check for any recent changes of any I.P address on that P.C(if exist/required)..
-Could also try and uninstall Antivirus and check the contivity if it works..
-Check for any malware/Trojan/virus infiltration..
Ive had the exact same problem but with Window 7 Pro Laptop; check it out if of any interest..

Why laptop window 7 common issues failing to connect internet?

Restting Winsock didnt work however installing Service Pack 1 update for Win 7 got me to connect via both Wireless and LAN..
Hope this helps..

    Have u tried to ping the name server ip or simply try to ping a healthy web site like ping www.yahoo.com and see if the response is ok ! Also check ur firewall / browser settings.....

    Could this be a Firewall or AV restirction?

    This looks to be something blocking the Web traffic...... Disable AV and any other possible port 80 firewalls. If you are using a Gateway product like Proxy make sure the user is in the allow list and that authenitcation is allowed.

    most of the time u right click and click disable the av or firewall... but it depends on what av u are using too

    It is better to allow the proxy thru the AV. or right-click (as Jinteik) u may see settings / options (whatever it is) and change / disable this for the time being and see the result. On ur next reply, it is not clear that, if u were able to ping self i.e. ping or ping localhost. If it shows Reply from..... then it is ok and ensure that the NIC is in good condition.

    You appear to be connected to the router gateway (Default Gateway which is also the dns server. So I think your problem lies there. It seems that the default gateway is not the first ip address in the subnet Check the default gateways on the PCs that can access the internet, to see if the default gateways are all the same. Is there any reason for not using DHCP or IP routing. I see they are turned off on your computer.

    Can you ping the router? Can you ping another system on the network? Please post an IPCONFIG /ALL from a working PC. Also, is there a reason to not use DHCP? What are the IP addresses of each of your systems? Manually configuring IP addresses and having two systems with the same IP could cause such strange behavior. Either both fail or first connected works. That "Node Type" is unknown implies a possibly corrupt configuration on this system or a very strange manual configuration. Most client systems do not enable IP routing so that is OK.

    The DNS and Gateway can be the same, so long as it is set up to forward DNS requests to something else. But agree with these gents: Ping first, then your gateway then something beyond it to see where the communication breaks down...
