Hello,
Using eMachines T5246 desktop with Vista home premium, 2gigs of RAM, 1.8 GHz processor.

When using hijack this last night, I believe I did some damage to my Nvidia nforce card.

Last night my MSFT 6to4 adapter had problems, which seemed to have been resolved with answers I found on this forum. In device manager I disabled and uninstalled the 6to4 adapter and after a bit the changes seem to have resolved the hardware issue and device manager reports all devices are working properly in the network adapters section. However...when I try to connect (hard wired connection on that machine) to the Internet, network diagnostics tells me there's a problem with my nvidia card. My IP config results are below, which clearly indicate a problem.

I am right now running chkdsk on that machine in the hopes that will resolve the issue. Earlier today I ran HostsXpert because I thought I deleted the localhost file with hijack this, but that didn't resolve the issue. I'm also getting an error msg when I try the nbtstat -R I get 'netBT is not bound to any devices'

Any ideas?

I would uninstall the current NIC drivers...reinstall them or update them (your choice)...and then set up my connection to the Internet, using the XP Network Connection Wizard.

If you are using a router, your connection is via a residential gateway.
