Can Ping Gateway but NOT DNS Server

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 4.2.2.2, 4.2.2.3, 4.2.2.4
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.

what is your onboard nic? driver issue?

DNS is not working - hence you get the yellow bang on the machine.

Try setting up the machine with ISPs DNS servers, or Google's free DNS servers and see if it works.  Most likely it will, and this will point to DNS not working locally.

From the DNS server itself, can you ping google.com?  Is the DNS working locally?

Check these things.

Nothing wrong with DNS / DHCP Windows Server that I know if.
All other machines in building working fine.
DNS server can browse locally and Internet.

Any chance bad cable/switchport? Doubtful, as another nic works.... think it is safe to say a nic/stack issue. Something whacked on that interface.

 Have you done a full reset of the winsock/tcpip stack?

Ran the 'Fitx it' Microsoft kb 299357 with optional NIC installed - no change.
From cmd line run as administrator - netsh int ip reset - no change.
Confirming - same ethernet cable connected to optionally installed NIC works fine.

Configured onboard NIC with static IP 192.168.1.170 and used DNS 4.2.2.2, 4.2.2.3
Yellow bang goes away - can browse Internet now when connected.
Still cannot ping local DNS server.

Must be record on local DNS server preventing problem ??

Lance McGrewAuthor Commented:
Mainboard is Intel DG61BE.  Does that provide necessary info?

Mistake on previous comment.  Mainboard is DH61BE not DG61BE.
