|Curt - did you not read the rest of the post?|
Ipconfig was identical, except for the IP obviously. DNS was flushed, as well as trying different DNS servers.
I did. And, I just reread it. I don't see anywhere in your post where it says you compared the TCP/IP settings of a working PC to the one that isn't. The only thing I see mentioned in your original post is that you flushed DNS on the client PC. Just for the record, if your DNS IP is incorrect, flushing the DNS won't fix it.
Maybe I'm just going blind in my old age and for the life of me can't see it so perhaps you'd be so kind as to copy it from your original post and paste that portion for me in a reply.
Granted I've only been specializing in enterprise level networking the last 5 years of my total 15+ in IT. But in my experience:
I can ping any website but no browsers will browse (IE, Firefox, & Chrome)
Usually means you're not getting DNS resolution.
Since you've done a restore and it's now working it's moot because you can no longer check and the important thing is that it's working.
