You'll need to re-install tcp/ip. You'll need this nettcpip.inf which should be on your distro cd. Here are a couple of other links.

Well,
If you are using W2k - open the properties of your connection, choose TCP/IP and click uninstall. Reboot and then install it the same way.
if you are using XP - you do not have the option to uninstall TCP/IP so you have to reset it from command prompt: "netsh int ip reset".

The command for XP actually needs to indicate a log file as well eg,

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
