Can the stalled machine do other things on the internet (e.g. browse a
webpage)?  If it can, then it's possibly just a DNF issue to figure

If you type ifconfig into the command line, does your ethernet port
have a valid IP (not nor an IP starting 169.254)?  If it has
one of them, it won't be able to do anything.  Likewise if it has none.

Does your PC have a nameserver configured in the settings?

e.g.  grep nameserver /etc/resolv.conf

Without a DNS server to consult, the PC won't be able to resolve any
host or domain names to connect to their IPs.

What sets the network addresses for your PCs?  Have you manually
configured each PC with static IPs?  Do you have a modem/router that
sets the PCs network configuration via DHCP?  Sometimes the
modem/router needs a reboot (they can have bugs just the same as
everything else).
