Network Issues

Trying to search to see if an existing answer for this is impossible.....
My Windows 2000 Pro work PC see the entwork connection at 100Mps or whatever, but I can not see any computers or the net. I have tried another network cable, no help. Reinstalled the card drivers, no help. A guy moved my cable in the PBX room to another thing. No help.
ALL OF THE SUDDEN THIS HAPPENED.
It worked this morning and my SETI and V-Com Systemsuite were not working. Something wierd here always happens over the weekend.
So I uninstalled and reinstalled Systemsuite and SETI (done many times before) and no help. I also uninstalled that Viewpoint Media Player that M$ uses for viewing pictures. I uninstalled that too. Meant to months ago. I have uninstalled this on many other PCs in the past and nothing like this ever happened.
Now we have not tried replacing the entwork card yet, but the connection is active at 100Mps, Mbs, whatever. Unplug the cable, the conenciton is "disconnected" per the icon. Plug the cable back in, and we get connected. But still no access to anything on the domain.
Any ideas please?
Thank you.
God bless.

Is this PC connected to a Workgroup or a Domain?
What do you get if you type IPCONFIG/ALL on a command line? Do you get a proper IP Address, gateway, DNS etc? Can you ping other computers?

Correct IP, correct mask, No gateway or DNS. Settings are correct. Cannot ping other machines. Already swapped NIC.

Can you ping the loopback? (127.0.0.1)

If that fails you need have a TCP/IP stack failure, and need to re-install. Use this command from command prompt: "netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt" See KB317518 for more details.

umm just a small thing but how come no DNS or Gateway? I believe that if you provided DNS and the gateway address in TCP/IP settings [provided that you aren't getting that info from a DHCP server, you might find you will have connectivity [disable any firewall service for testing purposes]. If your domain runs DHCP service and you use the domain network for access to a proxy server and/or perimeter firewall/router, you need to use the DHCP service. If your subnetted then your gateway address is the LAN side IP address of the router your behind.

Gotta give more details on the network guy.

I will add this comment. if you do have have the DNS server IP address listed in the TCP/IP properties for your NIC, your computer will then not be able to find a DNS server in which to authenticate with. Given that, you will not be able to browse or access any resources on a domain network nor will you be able to log in to that domain network. If you use that domain network for internet access, you won't have any internet access.
