cant ping websites

Why cant i ping websites,
I can pig the router. and when i go through the proxy server i can gain access to the web but still cant ping any webpages. But with my windows 2000 machines when the internet settings are clear i cant get them to load or ping. It works on my NT Machines.
for my internet settings for the nt machines i have a static ip address with the default gateway pointing to my router and my dns servers pointing to the internet for sproviders dns servers but for some reason when i use the same settings for windows 2000 the computer wont log in, (it verifies the users name and pasword but stays at the loading personal settings menu) if i change the settings to what the nt machines settings are after i log in with diffrent settings i can get internet with blacked out settings. Why does the Windows 2000 machine not like the settings but the windows 98 and NT machines work? Why cant i ping websites but i can get there when i go through my proxy?
