CAT6 Connection problems

By klm ·
So I got all crazy and ran quad shielded 4x cable through my house ..(2 rg6 and 2 cat6, same cable).
Now, 1 PC in our lower bedroom connects to the network just fine, but cannot get an internet connection. It can be seen on the network, as well as see other computers. The config is ...

Netgear Gigabit 16 port switch connected to a patch panel (hard wired in the back), cable modem is just plugged into a port on the switch. Network card was previsously set up to work with wireless access point.

I have --- installed a new cat6 port, double checked all wiring, tested the wire (clean), used differant ports on the switch... all of this to no avail. 3 other PC's all connect with the exact same setup just fine.

This PC gets "local connection" only .... and is driving me mad!! Any help?

What is the Modem here?

It may be a Router and only have 3 Connections enabled. You may be required to enter it's setup procedure and alter it's settings to allow more computers to connect to the Internet through it.

You may also need to try and repair the connections on the computer, also try connecting the computer straight to the switch, to see if it is the computer.
