One of our users downloaded a screen saver and lost her internet connection. In IP config, she had a strange IP address (not on our network). I did and ipconfig /release, but when I went to renew I got this error:
Windows IP Configuration - An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection: the requested service provider could not be loaded or initalized.
I have never seen this type of message before. I gave her a static ip, subnet mask, default gateway and DNS and it seemed happy, but still would not connect to the network.

Try reinstalling driver for the network interface card. If it does not help either then try restoring your system to prior dates before installation ("System Restore") . That would be the easy way around.

Just an FYI for you, if the weird IP started with a 169. it is an auto configuration address.

Yes, it did start with 169. I installed a new gigabit eithernet card with the same results. It seems like it is not resolving to the DHCP.

Try restarting dhcp client.
Does it work with static IP address?
