LAN One Way Signal Problem (Switch Box)

I have a machine that is connected to a network domain. The transmission only goes one way, packets are being sent but nothing is being received. The domain and IP address check out. Workstation name is also correct. Whenever I browse 'computers near me' all I can see is one machine (the machine in question). I have it plugged into port #1 of my D-Link DSH 8 switch box and port 10 of my hub.

I think this a switch box issue as both LEDs for each port are on, except for port #1. Port #1 has the top LED off, but the bottom one is on.

Please help.

No, the uplink port isn't numbered. It has the uplink port and then ports 1-8. The uplink port works fine. I cannot see any switch on the switch box or the hub. I have tried using different ports as suggested and I keep getting the 'network cable unplugged' message. I have tested the cable and it works fine...

and i'm assuming you've checked the nic card and made sure the drivers are correct...have you tried a different nic?

you say this is a domain machine right?can you ping any othere devices on the newtork?...how bout the loopback (172.0.0.1)? have you ACTUALLY joined the domain with the machine? if so is the machine showing up in the computers group in AD?

I cannot ping other machines from this particular machine.

The NIC is fine, the light is on. Drivers check out also.

The machine is on the domain. In fact this machine was on the network two weeks ago. we moved it yesterday, same cable, and connected it to the same port on the switch box and the same port on the hub as before. Now the signal is one way.

Before, both lights for port 1 on the switch box were on (this was when it was on the network, before the problem ocurred) not the top light is off but the bottom one flashes on and off at random intervals.
