I have a dell inspiron 1501, I am not able to connect to network via Ethernet or Wireless. I receive a APIPA Address. 169. etc. I have checked my host file, flushed my dns, reset winsock. Checked TCP/IP setting for DHCP. I tried on two different networks. The network I am currently on uses DHCP and I have many addressed allocated. I turned off everything in startup to alleviate any programs. I checked the registry in the run directory, nothing abnormal. I have also turned off the firewall. Does anyone out there have any suggestions.

Okay I was a little quick on the trigger after resetting TCP/IP, I was able to resolve to a ip address, Now i am unable to ping gateway or an outside IP address. I can successfully ping loopback. Any help would be appreciated. I am still working on this. Thank you very much
