    Is the firewall enabled?

      From the Command Prompt, type IPCONFIG /ALL
      Does the IP address start with 169.254.x.x ?
      If not, is the IP in the same range that is used on your network?
      What result do you get when you ping 127.0.0.1 ?
      If you have an IP in the same range as your network, what is displayed when you ping it ?
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2

          You need a local DNS server -- try adding in 192.168.0.201 as the first DNS server (most routers do DNS as well)

          If you have windows DNS running, use the server IP

          Basically, when your PC tries to resolve a name it goes to the internet, which obviously knows nothing about your local infrastructure

            If you are getting this error even if Firewall is disabled, then your TCP/IP Stack may be corrupted.

            Just reinstall the network drivers it will work.

            It worked for me
