perhaps your gateway information is not correct??  run cmd -> ipconfig /all
verify you have a valid IP address, gateway and DNS.
If all that is correct, try then ping first 127.0.0.1....shold get a response.
then try pinging gateway, then DNS.....

That should narrow down the problem....

if you move the workstation to another port, does it work then?  

I had a similar issue here once about a year ago....it was the darndest thing....none of my trouble shooting seemed to work, so I moved the workstation back to my other area where my bench is.  I was going to reformat and re-install windows; ( thinking i had some unidentified bug).  When I moved, it worked.  I then tried a different cable, no success.   Than basically left the wiring run or the terminations.  So I re-terminated the wall plug, and voila....it fixed.  
\ery strange.  You would think a bad connection would not obtain an IP or plain not work.....but.......

Anyway, try moving the workstation to another port....
