How do I ping this computer?

Dear All,
I have this brand new computer (Lenovo T43) that I installed, and added to the domain and whatnot.
It was working without any problem at all and was all ready to be shipped out to the user.
When we plugged in a wireless card to try it out, it worked without a problem a couple of times, but after the last test when I plugged it back into the network I wasn't able to ping it.
I removed it from the domain and deleted it of AD and tried to rejoin the domain, which worked flawlessly except for the fact that I now was unable to ping nor log on to the domain. (and it doesn't show up on AD)
As I can boot it up in safemode without any problems I tried to do the same procedure (the remove from - readd to domain one) from safemode. And this acctually worked.
But when I boot it up in normal WinXP mode I still can't ping it, but I can ping from the computer to the network.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thank you for your superb support.

try turning off the windows firewall.  a ping is not really a ping in windows unless you are a local administrator

The windows firewall is on.  You can either turn it off or open the ports to allow pings.

The symantec firewall will be just as must pain as the windows firewall.  turn it off.  solve the network firewall problem at a different level, ie corporate firewall (sonic wall, barracuda networks, pick your poison)   .  Address does not need to be static, and can be on the AD if you want.

Dear All,

Thank you for your replies.
I found the solution to my problem here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Windows_Networking/Q_21577448.html#a15011232

By disabling the Cisco VPN service I was able to use the PC as normal again.
I did a reinstallment of it and it's now working just fine.

Thank you once again for your help

If it happens in the future, uncheck the box that says statefull firewall always on.  That one bit me in the past.
