I have an odd situation I'm hoping someone could help me out with. I have a user who is getting the yellow exclamation point complaining about no internet access. We have a domain (win 2k3) and he still has access to all the local network resources, but can't get outside the building. This issue is isolated to just his computer, as everyone else has no problem (I'm typing this message from another PC w/ exactly the same specs on the same network).
ZOTAC 880GITX-A-E AMD3 motherboard
Win7 Pro x64
Realtek PCIe GBE controller
Atheros AR9285 wireless
We use the wired LAN as the default connection for all the desktops (wireless is active but not connected). I switched him over to the wireless (unplugging the wired connection), and the problem did go away, his internet access was restored. After about 10 minutes the problem came back and now affects his wireless connection as well.
I'm stumped. I've followed most of the steps I've seen online (disabled and enabled the devices, disabled IPv6, /flushdns, disconnect from power, etc...), and all to no avail.

Network Access but no Internet Access

Please show us the output of "ipconfig /all" as you may have a bad gateway address but that is rather rare. Have you tried changing from DHCP to static? Is there an IP address collision?

Sorry tain, forgot all about this because the next day, he came in, turned on his machine and the problem was gone. Very bizarre. I had checked for IP collisions and the gateway was reporting properly, but hadn't tried static IP. I'll keep that in mind though, should it pop up again.

No worries. We know that you're expert at this stuff so it seemed that this was either a really odd problem or just a one-off anomaly.
