XP Networking died
Posted on 2004-10-27
I have the following problem on my XP Professional home pc:
1) I was running NetLimiter, an unreliable and unstable little program, I have since learnewd; I uninstalled it, and apparantely all went well, I rebooted
2) I now have no TCP/IP on the system: the network card is fine, but when I request ipconfig, 0.0.0.0 comes up in all the fields. When I do ipconfig /renew (the workstation is plugged into a standard LAN with a DHCP Router), I get this error message:
"An error occurred while renewing the interface: Local Area Connection. The system cannot find the file specified."
There is no visible file specified.
ping 127.0.0.1 looks normal, but ping anything else and the system states that host is unreachable.
