  • Noticed you had no default gateway on your Win7 nic, and no DNS servers. Perhaps when you switch to DHCP you get a default gateway? You would not be able to go outside of your subnet - from x.x.x.x to y.y.y.y without a default gateway.

        I changed the ip address to and it worked. When i put the system to receive the ip from dhcp it receive the ip’s beyond And when i confugire any ip in the range 1-127 it dosen’t ping. Dont know why this happens.
