Network card going out?

I can not access the internet from my workstation computer, but I can RDP to my server and access the internet.
How can I determine if my workstation network card is bad?

If you can RDP to your server then your NIC is good
1) Try Rebooting
2) Try the following:
Something is blocking internet access from workstation and it is probably your firewall
Try turning off your windows firewall to test internet access
Then try turning off any security suite firewalls like Symantec or McAfee if installed
Try rebooting your internet modem / firewall
3) Try a different browser like firefox

Try putting this address into Firefox:-

http://64.233.183.104/

Do you get google?  If so, there's something wrong with the DNS settings on your workstation pc.

Go into the Network Connection settings for your Workstation, choose the Local Area Network, and in the list of protocols that appears choose the TCP/IP one.  On there is the Primary/Secondary DNS server addresses.  If these are blank then put in values that should have been given to you as part of your connection details for your 'pipe' to the internet.  (The public ones I was using seemed to have gone AWOL, let me do a search to find one that might work).  OR you can use the DNS settings in your Server (type

IPCONFIG /ALL

at a command prompt).
