(The winsock reset as described above, SHOULD reset this. Do this only if the problem still exists.)
I would love to know if your DHCP service
is started. If not, I would have you manually start it.
In XP: Click Start -> Run (and Type:) services.msc
In Vista/7: Click Start Icon -> Use the search bar, located directly above the start button, and type: services.msc
Maximize the window, and scroll down. Locate "DHCP Client" (It will be in alphabetical order)
In the column labeled "Status"
Is DHCP "Started"
If no, Single click "DHCP Client". The row will be Highlighted. Now in the top left, Select "Start" in the sentence "Start this service"
Also check the adjacent column labeled "Startup Type"
. Make sure this says "Automatic"
If it does not, Right click on the row, Choose "Properties"
. In this new window, make sure that you are currently on the "General"
Tab (Default). Change "Startup Type"
to Automatic. Click "Apply"
Did this work?
