    How are IP addresses handed out DHCP or Manually / Static?

    I can't see your IP range being from 192.168.0.1 too 192.168.0.20.

    Install a port scanner and scan the network it will tell you how many addresses you have it should be 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.255

    If you require anymore help post back.

    Keep us informed as to your progress if you require further assistance.

    Look at where your network cable plugs into the computer. Are there any blinking lights? If there are tiny little lights that are not on or blinking, then a network cable is not plugged in somewhere.

    Are you using DHCP?

    What is your subnet mask? If it is 255.255.255.0, then that is not the problem.

    This shouldn't actually cause the problem, but is you default gateway set the same as everyone else?

    Also, it is possible for Windows or a third-party security software to block ping with its built in firewall, so that is not always a sure-fire way to test connectivity. Can you ping the other computers or the default gateway?

    your IP address doesn't really mean anything on a corporate network other than you get an address.

    Corporate networks can and usually do have many security features that can limit where a user may go on the network. For instance, VLANs. you could be assigned to a VLAN which limits you to connecting to hosts only on the same VLAN. If your the only host on the VLAN, your isolated.

    In addition, hosts on the same VLAN can also be configured to not allow any remote connections and not share any resources. The result is, your computer is isolated from everything within your respective VLAN.

    These mentioned security features have nothing to do with whether you can get to the internet if your allowed access. So just changing your IP address does nothing to gain you access to resources.

    Contact your IT department to obtain information on what access you've been granted, if any.
