Network connection on my PC has failed

I have a PC running windows XP connected to a Network and the network connection has failed.

I have tried some diagnostics and find the following

1) I can successfully ping the PC's own IP address but cannot reach anything else on the network.

2) The light on the NIC is on and I have downloaded the latest drivers. According to the Device Manager the Network adaptor is installed, enabled and working properly.

3)  I have tried installing a new network card in a different PCI socket with no success.

4.) I have plugged the network cable into a different PC and it works, so the problem must be contained within the PC

5) I have run System restore to a time before the connection failed. No Success.

I would be very grateful indeed for any other ideas as to what the problem could be

Thanks in Anticipation
