Have a computer running xp pro sp3. The rest of the network is fine. This computer can browse to other file shares on the network and can browse the internet just. No connectivity issues from this one to others. Can no ping this one from others. Can not browse to it.
It has a static address and the DNS is all correct.
I get the error  "\\name is not accessible. You mihgt not have permissions to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found.

I have verified that remote access is allowed and that all domain users are allowed to connect.
There is no firewall running.

no firewall running on the internal machine, but what about between the PCs themselves?

Confirming you can't ping the static IP from another machine?

Commented:
You mentioned that no firewall is running on the computer.  I assume this means you have not installed any third party firewalls, but have you also checked to verify that built-in Windows Firewall is turned off and/or has the service disabled?

Also make sure there is no TCP/IP filters that may be dropping the desired connections and make sure the adapter is bound to the "Client for Microsoft Networks" and "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks":

Control Panel --> Network Connections --> Right click your [Ethernet Adapter] --> Properties

Ensure that "Client for Microsoft Networks" and "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" are both installed and enabled (have a check mark)

Click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) --> Click Properties --> "Advanced" --> "Options" Tab --> Click "Properties"

Ensure TCP/IP Filtering is disabled (no check mark) or that it is set to "Permit All" TCP Ports, UDP Ports, and IP Protocols if you have filtering enabled for another reason.

I can not ping the FQDN.
They are on a switched network.
Can not ping the static from another box.
No TCP/IP filtering is on.
Ethernet Adapter is correctly configured.
NetBIOS is enabled. WINS server is correct.

Just found out that some one installed SP3 the other day and then it broke.
