Created Server 2012, DC, AD/DNS/DHCP are working fine.
Added 7 devices to this domain with no issues.

Devices have appeared in AD/DNS - and all appeared fine.

I could ping from server, also from each device, no issues.

Came in today and cannot ping anything, all services look ok, nothing on event viewer.

Have restarted DC - no change, can ping nothing.
when I use arp -a, they all appear.. Any ideas?

Can you ping any of the devices from each other?

Is your Server issuing out IP as expected?

Can you ping your gateway?

Have you check that there is firewall turn on?

What happens when you try to ping? And what exactly do you try to ping?

Commented:
If I ping host name, times out.
If I ping ip address times out.

And if you try to ping a system outside of your network? You could also try going into TCP/IP properties and unchecking IPv6 (do not uninstall it).

I haven't got that far with it as yet.  It is only a test domain.
If I try to ping outside transmit failed, failed in transit.

would expect that though.

The way this is sounding, and correct me if I'm wrong, NONE of the devices can ping, correct?

I asked you twice to post Ipconfig to help us understand your configuration If you don;t want to do it for some reason, it's going to be hard to help you

Are all of these devices connected to the same switch? And if so, is the switch working properly?

Bear in mind that I am making the assumption that the DC is also serving as the DHCP server since there is no mention of a router or a hardware firewall.
