My computer which i use at work is within a domain. And our internet connection is through some kind of filter. So in Internet Explorer, there is a configured lan setting. When i try to connect any other ethernet device with this computer, i cant even ping the device. How can i solve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

First step would be asking your question on the right site... – ceejayoz Dec 19 '11 at 15:09
Please speak to your system administrator. – Dan Dec 19 '11 at 15:10
Why would a community of Systems Administrators help you skirt the policies that your SAs put in place? – MDMarra Dec 19 '11 at 15:17
@ceejayoz, what would you say the "right" site for this question is? – tombull89 Dec 19 '11 at 15:17
@tombull89: That's easy: – Sven Dec 19 '11 at 15:35

It sounds like there is some security that your system administrator setup. I would talk to your IT/System Administrators before you go trying to bypass the security they have put into place. There are a number of different setups that could be "blocking" you.
