Can Ping Gateway but NOT DNS Server
Posted on 2011-10-26
Windows 7 x64 OS is able to receive assigned IP address from DHCP server which is also a DNS server.
Server is Windows 2008 Std Server.
I can ping the gateway firewall 192.168.1.2
I can ping 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168
Cannot ping the DNS/DHCP server 192.168.1.11
Cannot browse local network.
Cannot ping other local network IP addresses.
Local OS firewall disabled on Windows 7 problem machine.
Device Manager displays no problem with hardwired ethernet NIC.
No wireless NIC involved. Only one mainboard Intel onboard NIC.
Taskbar connection has yellow bang.
Configuring with static IP address has same results.
I have deleted DNS entry on server.
I have done the ipconfig /flushdns.
I have done the ipconfig /release /renew
I have deleted the DHCP lease on server.
I can disable onboard NIC and install optional PCI NIC and computer connects to local network and Internet.
With optional NIC installed I can ping the DNS/DHCP server and all other local network addresses.
