Does the SNMP tester work for any other devices? Have you checked the IP that is being used with the tester to make sure it has network access? If it's the right IP then try a winsock fix on the adapter and see if that makes a difference.

This could also be related to malware being installed on the computer so please try scanning your computer for any infections.
