My laptop's networking support died! I reset the latptop shortly after I got home from a trip. I have it pluged into my hub with an Ethernet calbe, but it still doens't work. Nothing works. I can't even get DHCP or ping to work?!?!?! How do I fix it? It must be a software problem. I tried removing the WLAN card and putting it in another computer and it works. Its almost as if the IP Networking support just died on this laptop....

Help!

Thank you for your time,
Arrummzen

Things to try ... one at a time.  Then check by running ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew

reset your tcp stack

reset winsock

system file checker from command prompt
sfc /scannow

kabaam's article is for Windows XP only, this won't work on W2k. Check if those articles apply:
