A client running windows XP Professional installed SP2 on his Gateway  500XL.  After installing, he can no longer receive packets on his network card.  I've turned off the firewall, removed SP2, installed a new NIC...none of those things have worked.  when trying to renew the IP address, the error reads, "unable to renew...An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket."  If I staticly map the IP, the machine still does not receive packets.  Any ideas.  There are no new updates for this adapter on gateways site.  Thanks.
