OK, this is a little vague, but I'll try to work with it.

You are trying to join to a domain and you can ping the DC but cannot join the domain.

This is more then likely a DNS problem and to solve it, you need to change your DNS Suffix to the appropriate domain that you are trying to connect to (e.g. domain.local or domain.com).

To do this, you must go to:
     -Network Connections, select your Local Area Connection, and select Properties.
     -Next, select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click properties.
     -From this screen select Advanced
     -In the advanced menu, select the DNS tab
     -Enter in the appropriate DNS Suffix and click OK to close all the windows

Retry joining the domain, if the problem still persists, then try assigning a static IP on the DC's subnet.

Your description was a little vague, so if you could add some more detail, I can try to help you some more then.

Can you ping names? Or just IP's?
can you call up a cmd line and run NSLOOKUP? What results do you get?

As you are able to ping the domain but not able to join, confirm that the name of your system must not same with other system in your domain.

Sorry for the vagueness I should have added more info. I was able to ping do nslookups everything seemed normal except when I di a trace rout it would just go one bounce and stop at my ISP's router. I was able ot figure out and resolve the issue. My Layered service provider software was buddy or corrupted. I found a tool to fix it at http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm
