About a month ago I installed the XP Service Pack 3. Beginning the next day, my network connection stopped allowing automatic access to the Internet. Anyone know a fix for this?

About a month ago I installed the recommended Windows XP Service Pack 3. The very next day my Intenet (network) connection began failing each morning when I turned on my computer. By right clicking on the "two-computers-with-exclamation-point" icon in the system tray, and using the "repair" function, I am able to refresh the IP address each morning and fix the problem--for as long as the computer stays on. But when the computer is turned off, the problem returns. I have tried downloading a new network card driver (even from 2-3 different sources). I also tried a WinSock fix. But nothing seems to work.
