  2. My first suspect would be a bad router, constantly searching for addresses
    it is failing to find. Perhaps the router would need a new copy of its bios.
    Event ID 4199 is logged in the System log when you assign or change an IP
    address on a Windows Vista-based computer:

    Hi,

    Your router may be configured to drop pings.

    What IP range are you using internally?
