Windows 2012 Essentials Server can't connect to the internet

Windows 2012 Essentials server is not allowing internet browsing.  I do get DNS info from NSLookUp.  I have turned off IE protection and installed an alternate browser.  I've even turned off the firewall.  What steps can I take to allow browsing on the server?

Are there other computers on your network? If so, can the other computers browse the Internet?

Are you behind a hardware firewall?

Can you successfully perform a traceroute to Internet destinations, such as 8.8.8.8?

Yes, 3 Windows 7 Pro systems and all can get to the internet.

It's Frontier router.  Nothing special.

Not sure.  I am getting DNS information.  Your point is well taken though.  I'll check on that.

If you're getting DNS - and the DNS is locally sourced (on your LAN) - then that doesn't necessarily signify a lot.
Does this new server have the same IP as another server that was in place at one time?

Tracert doesn't work.

The DNS is store on the local network on the router.  

There was no other server being replaced.

DNS is setup on the NIC as the local router and Comcast's main DNS server (75.75.75.75)

Paste the following info:

Output from ipconfig /all

A tracert to an IP (such as 8.8.8.8) and a FQDN (such as www.google.com).

Okay, thanks.
Now, quick test - re-address your problem server to another IP address in that subnet - say 10.0.0.111. Perform the same tests. Are the results the same?

That worked.  Why would the different IP make a difference?

rharland2009Commented:
Couple of possible root causes here. You may have an IP address conflict on your LAN - that is, there may be another computer that already has the 10.0.0.11 address and is hijacking the ping/tracert replies.
Second option that comes to mind is a static IP/MAC binding on your gateway/router - hence my earlier question regarding this being a replacement, etc.
You can test the first possibility by pinging from your server (now with the new address) the 10.0.0.11 address. Does it answer?
Second option can be tested by a quick look at your gateway's configuration/settings.

I re-IPed the network there.  Set up ranges for static and dynamic IPs. It is possible that another tech that I have went out and over wrote it.  I will check and thanks for your help!
