It has been two days now, and I cannot seem to solve this issue.

When using ipconfig on cmd line, the following error is received:

Windows IP Configuration

An internal error occurred: The request is not supported.
Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for further help.
Additional information: Unable to query host name

I have tried everything I know...

Any ideas as to what to do now?

Thanks in advance

I just noticed in event viewer that the tcpip driver failed to load. This is a new driver too... I deleted the old one and added a new one from the OS CD...

Any ideas as to why it may be failing to load?

If you get the same type message on other command line net commands (netstat or one of the commands under the net use /? or net view /? hierarchy), you really don't have a tcp/ip stack running.

Do you know how to do a repair install? Are you prepared with backups and settings and reinstall media in case things go (more) horribly wrong?


Here is the details of stopping and starting services via the command line.

But this one seems to match what you are describing in a rather specific way and includes some other tests to try before deciding the reinstall route is the only path.

You ought to be able to rollback to the previous driver as Windows keeps a backup. Refer to the image:

I have tried that a while back... there is no rollback driver available.

I have tried the repair install... everything went fine nothing went horribly wrong... and nothing was fixed either.
I have seen the second solutions and just finished trying it today... nothing there either...

I am going crazy!

Louis, thanks for the link. I followed the steps on the thread... still nothing...

The worst part about it is that wen I get this fixed, it is going to be so simple... that it is going to make me puke.

Still losing my mind tho'

Another thing I just found out is that under Device Manager, when looking at the hidden devices, I see that the TCP/IP Protocol Driver has an error... When I try to start the service manually, I get "The system cannot find the file specified"

But I swear i have the right driver there... I took it from the XP CD and added it back to the drivers folder under system32... anyone any ideas?
