Hello, I am attempting to connect to a Router interface with it's IP and I cannot get it to work. When I try to access it I receive an error message just saying "Unable to connect" in IE and Firefox. Same issue with our printer, and pinging results in "General Failure.". This issue is non existent for ANY other machine on the network.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

The problem machine likely has one or more of several problems.

If wired (some of the most likely include): network adapter driver issues; is not set to get a network address from the router at either the machine or router end, may have a static address set, or may have a bad cable.

If wireless may have some of the above, is not compatible with the radio type used (less likely), is not using the same security type and/or correct passkey.

Check those, also is it wired or wireless?

Wireless but same issue with Wired, I made sure that no static IP address was set (on either end), updated my drivers and confirmed the compatible frequencies, but no luck. I forgot to mention it but I can access the internet just fine, issue is LAN specific.
