I need some help quick.

I had a problem with my ethernet card on my windows 2000 server which required a new one to be placed in.  The new card now works perfectly however the IP address of my DNS server which also has the Intranet setup on it has now changed from 192.168.123.98 to 192.168.123.135 as the new ethernet is on dhcp instead of static.

I tried to get into the network and dial-up properties however it keeps saying that "You do not have permission to access network and dail-up properties.  I'm sure that my predisessor put some restrictions on it mabie in the security policies but i'm just not sure where the setting is.

I am currently logged on as the administrator.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as i'm in a bad situation with my network down.

It sounds like this policy is in place:

User Config- Admin templates- Network- Network Connections- Prohibit access to properties of a LAN connection

So

Start- Run-  gpedit.msc

Then follow the above.

This is assuming that this is a local policy on the server.
