I have a static IP address on my server and static DNS servers input on my network card. The default gateway is also put in and so is the subnet 255.255.255.0

I can remote desktop to the server no problem. However i can not access remote administration from server manager even though wmi is set to allow remote admin connections.

When i put my mouse over the little network connected icon in the bottom right hand corner it says no internet access.

However when I launch internet explorer the exclamation point goes away. And the internet works.

What is going on?
