Dare I ask if you have ICMP turned on?

I am at wit's end.  Sure, it was a short trip, but still fun.

I have one user/PC that cannot access GW after some while of being
powered on.  PING fails, to the GW server, but continues to succeed to
other servers on the same subnet.

Changed NIC, force to 10/HD (?) and reinstalled client (NW and GW) and
Winsock2 upgrade.

If I reboot, things work, for a while.  No one else in that building
has any problems.  AOL (5.x) seems to be at issue, but, it seems not
likely that it can cause ping to fail to a particular address.

What else can I look at?
