Unable to renew ip address in XP Pro
Posted on 2010-09-05
After cleaning an XP Pro desktop PC from a virus, the lan adaptor is now not able to get its ip from the DHCP server.
If I try to repair the connection, it fails with an error of Unable to renew ip address.
I have tried uninstalling the adaptor and then reinstalling with the latest drivers, but this does not cure the problem
IF i give a static address it functions normally, but I want to user DHCP on this machine as I often use it at different locations.
