We have several computers in the office and only one can not connect to one of the other ones.  The firewall is off, the homegroup is disabled, network is set to home, everyone is on the same IP range, etc--this one computer can just not access one other one--and it just happended out of the blue.  Can not ping it or anything ?  However, all other computers on the network can access it except for this one computer.  HELP!

Hi,

1. are you able to ping server by IP from effected computer ?
2. are you able to ping server by name from effected computer ?
3. Check the workstation service on effected computer.
4. see the event logs for additional information.
5. disable the Antivirus firewall if any.

pls restart the workstation service and check.

check the HOSTS file under C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc.

see if any loopback ip is configured.
