View Network Connection Missing

Hey Guys -

I have a Windows 2000 Server that has two NICs in it acting as a firewall.

If I open Network Places and click View Network Connections, nothing is listed. I do see the status bar says 3 objects, but I can't see anything.

Any ideas?

I am switch to a new ISP today and I need to update the IPs on this NIC! So the sooner someone can help the better!!

Thanks,

Justin

You might try resetting your TCP/IP stack:
 Click Start->Run->CMD <enter>
 at the prompt, type:

 netsh int ip reset > c:\resetlog.txt <enter>

Netsh references:

To reset your windows sockets, download and run the following:

 Manual method can be accomplished by deleting the following two keys in the registry:
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2
 and then reboot
