Limited or no connectivity

Interesting problem here. We have a remote site with about 5-6 PCs on that network. They all use DHCP off the router to obtain their IPs. All the computers work except one. Keeps prompted me for limited or no connectivity. I tried assigning it a static address on that network and it won't let me ping anything on that network. I've done a loopback test and looekd athe most recent drivers and they work fine.
The computer can connect fine to wireless, but can not wired. I had the laptop swapped out with another on a docking station that I know works to elimiate any bad cabling and still experience the same issue.
I can not ping the router either when I assign it a static address.
IBM Laptop T61 series, currently updating everything on Windows XP. Attempted a DNS flush and still the same results.

I tend to agree about the wired NIC, but what you might try to do is go the the Lenovo Support Site for Thinkpads, go to T61 and find the wired NIC. Download it and the Readme file. Update the wired NIC driver (Device Manager and Update Driver) and see if an updated driver helps. .... Thinkpads_User (T61p)

Could it possibly be just a defective nic in that laptop?

Especially considering that the wireless works fine. Maybe there is some physical damage to the embedded nic card.

I eliminated the possiblity of cabling and docking station by putting it on one that i know works. Also after we sent it out, it worked fine in here and was able to pull an IP fine. Only thing in the event log that is showing is
