You will have to test that port with a network tester, or try a laptop to see if you can get an IP.

Is the computer in question using a static IP address that is different than the scheme you have in place?

Example: Network scheme = 192.168.x.x and Static IP = 10.0.0.1 ??

Verify that the computer in question is set to DHCP and that there are no reservations within your DHCP server for that machine's MAC.
