I have a client's computer that is connected via CAT5 to our network. It is receiving data back and forth (tested with ping), but there is no internet. I was able to pull up a connection to our local server. It is setup for a modem connection tethered to a cell phone. I have checked the TCP/IP settings and its setup for DHCP (like it should be), I've tried resetting the Internet Options, done a WINSOCK fix and nothing seems to be working.

What am I missing?

What is a "WINSOCK fix"? – Troggy Aug 18 '09 at 19:26
What can you ping? Whats the difference between this client's computer and your own? Is yours a member of a domain? – Ciaran Aug 18 '09 at 19:31
Winsock fix is vb applet that tunnels your internet connection. And I was able to ping and the local server. Google is domian exclusive, and my server is domain inclusive. – Chris Aug 18 '09 at 19:44

Did DHCP pull down the DNS server settings? What error are you getting? If you go to ( does it work?

Assuming you're able to ping devices outside of your network, check to make sure your proxy and DNS settings are what are supposed to be.

Proxy was probably covered when he reset internet options.. And DNS when he checked TCP/IP settings – Ciaran Aug 18 '09 at 19:29
Yes, and check on that. Still no good. – Chris Aug 18 '09 at 19:30
