*sigh* It seems like everything is breaking on me all at once...

Anyways... My computer, Windows Vista Business, and it's running a static IP, as per my network requirements.

I come in this morning, and the computer is frozen... Surprise. (not really)

Shut it down, turn it on, and get into windows. Well, next thing I know, I can't go online. Awesome.
Control Panel, network and sharing centre, and it shows that I'm not even really connected to an Unidentified network. It has the little yellow triangle with an exclamation mark, and of course a red X from the network tot he internet.
You can't even diagnose what's wrong cause windows just tells you to talk to your network administrator and blah blah blah.
IPV6 is not enabled, and my IP address is correct. I've gone from static to DHCP, and pluggged it into a wireless router, and that works with no problems. Go back to static, plugged into a switch, and i've got problems... Makes no sense.
I've tried resetting the tcp/ip, uninstall/reinstall the drivers for the card, and so on. Just very strange that it was working a week ago, and suddenly it's not working.
I can't do a system restore.....
Any ideas? I'm thinking an sfc or a chkdsk to see if that helps before I jump on the reinstall bandwagon...

Well... Still the same thing.
The system restore did work from safe mode...
But alas, still no success... even safe mode with networking doesn't work... Ughh..

Desktop
Wired.

If it didn't work when I plugged it into a router, than I wouldn't be so stumped by this...

Is Skyway West your ISP?
Is 216.251.128.8 your required DNS setting?

Can you wire your computer straight to the modem, bypassing router and see, if the connection is back?
Turn everything off, first.

Not really.
It's across the street, upstairs.

I have a network drop on the wall.
Plugged into the network drop, is a 5 port switch. The switch has my computer, and a wireless router plugged into it.
I've tried other ports on the switch with the desktop, and they dont' work. Swapped the cable, and it still doesn't work.

If I change the settings on my desktop to obtain the IP address automatically and plug it into the router, it works perfectly fine.

I guess I should point out that I'm not in a home.. I'm in a building, obviously, but with multiple systems.
This computer is the only one that is having any sort of problems.

Aha....I suggest, you contact network people regarding those DNS settings. Something must be wrong there.

But the other computer beside me, using the same DNS settings isn't having a problem.
I have 3 computers in front of me.. My laptop on the wireless, the desktop that doesn't work and another desktop that is working.

that didn't work.

I can't release and renew my IP address... I'm on a static IP. (and yes, I've tried a different IP that I know isn't in use)
