I connect my laptop to the network using cat cable, I see when the
switch port lights up once the cable is connected to my computer, I
see light blinking on the switch port but for some reason I CANT do
the following

a) I cant go out using the internet
b) I cant ping other computers
C) The laptop cant be ping from other computers


is like nothing is coming in or out


I have done the following

Change the cable
Release and renew with no avail
restart computer with "last known"
Stop anti-virus(never was a problem before)


Any help I will appreciated on how to troubleshoot this problem

Can you ping your router by IP address?
Run ipconfig /all and post the response.

New system, old system it was working before something changed?

I would prefer an Ethernet cable RJ-45 ends and Cat5e/6, cat on it's own
doesn't work so well, they object a lot.

The lights are only to show the cable is connected, they don't show that
TCP/IP or other required settings are correct.

Leave to to last.
Assuming other computers are okay. At least 1 you posted from. They can
all ping each other.

> b) I cant ping other computers

How? By IP address or name.
You have a valid IP address and the gateway other settings from the
output of

ipconfig/all

are the same as a working PC.

See below.

> C) The laptop cant be ping from other computers


For the IP address you do get, can you ping it?

Can you ping 127.0.0.1?

Something must have happened?
What IP address do you get?

A correct address?
Something like 169.254.0.0 - 169.254.255.255
Maybe even 0.0.0.0

> restart computer with "last known"


Might be better off with a last restore point, if it's less than a day
or 2 old. The 'Last Known' good configs can older.

> Stop anti-virus(never was a problem before)

What AV? Have you tried to uninstall it?

You didn't mention any firewall app.
