Do you have any DHCP reservations on your router for your machine? If so, please remove them as these could cause issues.

You said you installed a protocol? What was it? Messing with TCP/IP can cause issues and you may need to re-install your network driver in order for it to be restored.

The protocol was Reliable Multicast Protocol. And I don't have any DHCP reservations. Not that I know of atleast.

Hmmm... Just a test to see if any third party applications are messing things up. Can you temporarily disable your firewall and A/V application and then boot your machine into Safe Mode with Networking. After that test connectivity.

Safe Mode

Note   Note
Please replace all references of Safe Mode with Safe Mode with Networking


Do any other machines experience issues similar to this? If so are they wired or wireless?

Also, have you reset your router back to factory default settings at all? As previously stated it may be an issue on your routers side

I do not think it is a issue with the router because the ethernet cable works fine on other computers. And I will try disabling firewall and AV

The cable works fine because your machine is detecting it Your router may not be sending a valid IP configuration, that is why it is a suspect.

Did you ever run the IPReset file that I posted earlier, that can sometimes fix this problem although there are other possible causes, many of which are posted in the comments section in the following link.

You might also try typing in the default gateway manually into the IPv4 properties per the instructions in the link. Very common problem but with many possible solutions.
