no network access

I have wondows server 2003 and runng one computer off of it. The server can't access any ip addresses or web sites but the other windows 7 computer can get on the internet but can't get any of the server files. I think its the network card but not sure what else it could be.???

On the server what does this command return?


Are you able to setup a static ip on the network card on server(assuming the above command shows no ip of course) to test?

If you don't have any output from above, and you setup a static ip - ping that ip after setting it up and does it return result?

I did that and i dont get a result from either. ipconfig or ping.
No result at all from ipconfig? Blank return?

Usually means the network card isn't installed - what's showing in Device manager under Network? Any sign of the hardware at all?

Where you able to setup a static ip then?
If hardware is listed in device manager then try this command instead

netsh ip reset

The restart server...
