Fail to Obtain IP Automatically, Manual Assign IP OK

Suddenly, my network card no longer able to obtain an IP from my router's DHCP. It was working fine yesterday but today I am getting the "LIMITED CONNECTIVITY" error. However, when I assigned static IP to it, I am able to get back the connection. Everything works fine. But I am lost as to why obtaining the IP automatically has failed...

1) I've tried WinsockxpFix
2) I've changed cable and router port
3) I've changed PCI slot
4) I've tried another NIC card
5) Restarted PC & Router numerous times
6) Other PCs using cable & wireless are fine

Anyone have any idea? Please help (OS: Windows XP SP2, Dlink WBR-2310, Realtek NIC)

Make sure your NIC is set to Autonegotiate - and same for the Dlink.

Added my router IP into the TRUST list in my Norton Internet Security. Able to grab the DHCP assigned IP now. Weird as previously there was no issue. Something must've corrupted the NIS settings... so weird.
