or

Your Winsock may be corrupted
http://members.shaw.ca/techcd/WinsockXPFix.exe

Another Expert shekerra found out what the WinSockXPFix does:

1- Netsh ip int reset resetlog.txt....2.)

2- replaces these Registry keys:
 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock..
 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2

3- backup old host file and replaces host file

So in essence it detects the OS and releases the IP then resets TCP stack using Netsh. Next it deletes the two registry keys above and Imports the correct keys into the registry. Then it backs up your current hosts file and replaces it with a fresh one and then reboots.

or

" LSP-Fix, that repairs corrupted Winsock stacks. This can be used to remove entries left behind by New.net and similar software, restoring access to machines that cannot connect to the Internet.

Hi hmiller8513,

Do you have a router at your place ? Have you tried connecting this computer directly to the cable modem and through the router ?

Make sure going to the TCP/IP internet properties in your LAN connection that there are no static IP address already configured

Try to change the ethernet cable connecting from cable modem or router and see if that would make any difference

once you connect your machine , just do a restart and see if the computer picks up the IP address from the router or cable modem

Did You checked that there is no static ip conncted with this card (as mentioned above) ?
If yes i think that you should reinstall ALL network protocols and clients (first uninstall all of them, after that install one by one). It would be great if you post protocols and connections between them in here

Regards
Marcin

I am having a similiar problem with a Windows XP Compaq laptop after I ran AdAware on it.

I cannot get it to obtain an IP address on two different networks, one is wireless and one is hard-wired to the router.

I first deleted the the network adapters from the device manager, then ran the winsock fix. I rebooted, and it still didn't work. I even restored all of the deleted items from Adaware.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
