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
