I am running Mint KDE 9 (Isadora) on a triple boot desktop with Windows XP and Mint KDE 8 (that I do not use anymore). I am connected to the internet through cable at my work. This week I haven't been able to get onto the the net on Monday, Wednesday and today (Friday) using Mint. The internet works fine on the Windows part as well as from a laptop (Mint KDE 12 - Lisa). I do get a dynamic ip address and and I am using the same dns servers on the desktop and the laptop, so I am really very confused and could do with some help.
I include some of the output that helpful people usually ask for when trying to help with network issues below. It may not be very useful; output from ifconfig and contents of /etc/resolv.config and /etc/network/interfaces look similar to the output on the laptop, nslookup and ping does not (if fails on the desktop, works on the laptop). Let me know if you need anything else.
