Unable to clear ARP Cache

I have an XP Pro computer with a network communication problem. When I attemted to "Repair" the connection, the repair process was unable to clear the arp cache.

The arp cache has been deleted several time using "netsh int ip delete arpcache" (which results in "OK") and arp -d *. This has not resolved the issue. The connection was also disabled and re-enabled, and the network card itself was then uninstalled from Device Manager and then re-installed. Still unable the clear the arp cache. Anything else to try?
