    I added two new desktops to a network, all IP settings
    are static, but I am unable to ping the gateway with
    these systems using there new IP address. If I power
    down one of the older desktops and use its IP address I
    am able to ping the gateway. I was able to join the
    domain and I can get to everything on the domain except
    the gateway. The server (only one)is running Server 2003
    with active directory and is the master browser. The
    server had to be restored from backup a few weeks ago.
    It is my theory that one of the files that was restored
    has the attribute set to read-only when it should be
    I'm I out in left fild with this theory? Any assistance,
    suggestions, advise, input is be greatly appricated my
    email addresss is

    Thank you,

  2. Can you post the output of IPconfig /all of a working machine and a non
    working machine? Is the Windows Server 2003 box also the default gateway?
    Can the non working clients ping other clients on their subnet?
