Limited connectivity. Windows Server 2012 on HP Envy Phoenix desktop


I tried to install windows server 2012 on a desktop for training purpose.

I made it a DC and gave the following IP address

But when we connect to the switch, I could not ping to other laptops and the laptops cannot ping to the server. I have turned off all firewall.

The network gave limited connectivity. I have uninstalled the driver and reinstall, tried windows update to find the latest driver.

I need the AD server to be able to connect and ping to other laptops. Anyone can give me some important information to make it connect.

How is it physically connected?
There are 2 NICs? One connected directly to internet and second to switch?
It is recomended to use router as a default gateway.

Hello, what default gateway do you use?

Hi I do not use any default gateway. I leave it as blank. I do not have any router or anything
