    I would think its likely that
    your network adaptor does not have a default gateway
    Does the PC have a default gateway set? (start, run, cmd, ipconfig /all)

    Maybe the first google result for searching "your network adaptor does not have a default gateway" will help

    Do not blindly follow the instructions, check the gateway, if the pc is dhcp then add the values to the dhcp server to be pushed out.

    Erm, unless you follow the workaround described in the KB in which case it works perfectly.
