|When I "obtain an IP Address automatically" My network connection works fine.|
When I manually set the IP Address (Subnet, gateway, DNS) The network connection does not work. (Internet explorer does not work. Ping to Gateway either times out or the Host <local IP Address> reports that the destination is unreachable.)
If I use the same IP setting on a WinXP machine, the connection is fine.
I have tried disabling the windows firewall with not apparent difference in behavior.
