comment Can't ping localhost/or reach locally hosted domain
I tried the equivalent - turn everything off, restart the linux firewall, restart the rest. It helped me see all the correct machines. But I still can't ping the local machine's IP (192.168.0.?? or 127.0.0.1) from inside, yet others can ping me. Very strange.

comment Can't ping localhost/or reach locally hosted domain
I don't know you mean by can't browse locally hosted domain - I can reach locally hosted websites in Win2K, WinXP, and Linux. But not this Win7 machine. All sites go direct - no proxy (NAT firewall). Ping is enabled, and telnet is not installed. Even more confusing - after waiting for 2 hours I can now reach the website, but still not ping localhost or domain. All I've changed is a backup script, and been browsing the internet.
