I have a ibm thinkpad t43 and everything was working fine until the oter day i turned the machine off and when i turned it back on i am unable to connect to the internet, through the ethernet port. I get the message aquiring netwoek address. I have tried to repair the connection by clicking on the two computers but it does not work. I am not on the machine now i have a different computer. This happened to me once before and i was able to get it working again with the help of fellow computer geeks from this website. They had me do ipconfig /release, ipcofig /renew, and ipconfig /flushdns and everything worked fine. Now when i try to ipconfig /renew nothing happens. Any advice???
I am using windows xp.
i posted this problem in networking, but a senior member said that i may be infected with malaware. He tried to help but was unable to resolve the problem.
