      You don't say what OS or version you're using, so I'm assuming that you're on Windows.

      I had that problem happen a couple of times many years ago. It seems that either the OS or something in the registry had gotten corrupted. The only way that I found to fix it was to run a repair on my OS. That was many years ago and was Windows NT 4.0, so I'm not sure if that applies to this situation or not.

      Can you ping 127.0.0.1? If so, then if you can't ping another device, then the problem is somewhere in the networking realm. If you can't run a successful ping test, then I'd speculate that the OS or registry is the problem. Have you tried booting to safemode and pinging 127.0.0.1? You might try navigating to your network adapter in the device manager and making sure an adapter is listed, and if so, that it's working properly.

      If you have tried everything and before you repair or reinstall, you might want to think back to the last time you know it worked, and then try to restore from that point. Any programs installed during that time period will have to be resintalled.

      You can't ping anyone, or the ping command itself is missing?

      Answering the second possibility, if you look here, is the ping.exe in the folder?
      "C:\Windows\System32\PING.EXE"

      If so, try using the full path "C:\Windows\System32\PING.EXE" when issuing the ping command, it is possible your path variable is messed up.
