I am stumped.
I have a machine that cannot conect to the internet.
Windows XP SP2.
In CMD i can release and renew the IP address.
I can ping the Gateway/DHCP/DNS Servers.
I cannot ping out to any internet site, all i get back from the ping is a "Destination Host Unreachable" error.
I am an IT tech and i commonly deal with network issues like this, but this has never happened to me before.
If i boot the machine in safe mode with networking and i can get out to the internet and ping sites.
if i tracert while in safemode the hops come back and it connects ok.
if i tracert in normal boot, the only hop i get back is a Destination host unreachable error.
if i "route print" in CMD i can see that the gateways and DHCP's are all ok.
it shows that for any address, it will connect to my gateway and resolve through my DHCP.
also if i ping a site, it shows that it connects through my DHCP and resolves the address.
This is really bothering me and i appreciate any help.
Other things i have tried:
-putting in a different NIC card
-updating NIC drivers
-rolling back NIC drivers
