Did you check the settings for the system in question?

Rebuild/setup the connection?

A few things you might try are:

What response are you getting when you are at a DOS command prompt
and type just ipconfig and hit enter?
Are you getting a ip address?
Are you getting a Subnet Mask?
Are you getting a Default Gateway?

Are you connected via network cable or wireless on the network?
Check your network cable connections.
Do you have a PC personal firewall installed? It might be blocking
your network card from being able to renew its IP address from
the DHCP server, unless you are configured for a static ip address.
Try disabling your PC firewall for a moment and than try doing a ipconfig/renew
again at the DOS command prompt.
Also the port on the network switch might be disabled due to a error condition
and it is only affecting you. This would explain other computers not having your
network connection issue.
Hope some of this will help you out. Let me know what happens
