TCP/IP Protocol Driver failure
Posted on 2007-08-08
I have a computer that was operating fine, and then today, in the event viewer I see 100's of TCP/IP errors, I cannot connect to the access point (however the client portion of Netgear does show connected), but I do not get an IP address. When I run IPCONFIG to review, I get:
An internal error occurred: The request is not supported.
Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for further help.
Additional information: Unable to query host name.
In the event viewer, I am seeing "The TCP/IP Protocol Driver service failed to start due to the following error: the specified driver is invalid."
I reviewed c:\windows\system32 and I do not see afd.sys, tcpip.sys, or netbt.sys. I have attempted to rebuild winsock with the command: netsh winsock reset, but this has had no effect.
I appreciate any and all advice!
