I am working on a friends computer that was badly infected with Malware and a couple Viruses. I have been able to get all of those removed however I still cannot get the NIC to recognize my router or modem's IP address. It just registers the Auto Config 169.254.27.10 and Subnet of 255.255.00 and the Default Gateway is blank. I have a feeling that one of the viruses when removed did some damage. I have removed the hardware and reinstalled, tried to roll back the driver but there was none, I updated the driver to the most current, used different Ethernet cables, plugged into different ports on my hub, disabled any firewalls and no luck. I know the hub is working because I have another desktop that is working just fine as well as my laptop is reading the router and working. My NIC is a Broadcom 440X Integrated and is built into the motherboard. I am running out of options besides trying to reset the TCP/IP Stack if maybe it got corrupted. Thanks for reading this and any feedback.

Have you tried reseting the winsock? I usually, after everything you have done, reset the winsock, unplug the ethernet, reset the modem, reboot pc. Let the pc come up and modem. After that, reconnect ethernet and you should pull a valid ip.

And they built a new world in their own image as promised by the sacred words, and spoke of the beast with their children. Mammon awoke, and lo! it was naught but a follower.
