XP Pro system, SP2, running Comodo firewall, Avira, Windows Defender. Have run Mbam, SAS, CWshredder in safe mode. Have also run Panda and Sophos, OTscanIT, Asquared, RootRepeal, etc. After all this, I ran SDFix yesterday and it found and deleted a trojan in C:\Windows called '1.tmp'. Still unable to open www.symantec.com website. Unable to open www.pctools.com website. I've tried pinging those websites and get 'request timed out'. Believe this machine is still infected and I need help at this point. Thanks, guys.Just to clarify the above... When booting up in safe mode with networking enabled, no problem reaching www.symantec.com or www.pctools.com. However, in normal bootup those sites - and others - are unreachable.Merged posts. ~ OB

I have recently discovered PCTools ThreatFire (ThreatFire AntiVirus - Behavioral Virus and Spyware Protection). This is a great program, I now use it on all my PCs bundled with Microsoft Security Essentials. However, I installed it on my new laptop, an ASUS UL20A-A1 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, 2GB RAM, and a 1.3GHz Core 2 Duo. I installed Microsoft Security Essentials on my new laptop, didn't affect performance at all, and then I installed ThreatFire alongside MSE, and noticed a good decrease in overall performance. ThreatFire doesn't slow down my older XP desktops with MSE installed alongside, and it doesn't slow down my weaker XP laptop with MSE installed alongside. I really like ThreatFire, but I don't understand why it is slowing down the most powerful computer I have, and not slowing down the weakest computers I have, it just doesn't make sense. I've done all the tuning up possible with my new laptop (defrag, clean disk space, disable startup items, etc. etc.) with no luck. Does anybody know why ThreatFire would be slowing down my laptop and if there's a fix?

Thanks!

You are running win 7 with the absolute minimum ram. MSE, useses minimal resources Threatfire uses much more. It doesnt affect XP because its OS requires less ram.

If I were you I would think about adding ram, or using 32bit instead.

Hello. First post. Hope I follow the rules.

I ran the pctools program at pcpitstopDOTcom. It reported the following as serious:

CnsMin Hijacker Level 3

SWEET BOX Adware Level 1

Pripi Trojan Level 4

Pripi Trojan Level 4 (listed twice (?))

SecureExpertCleaner Rogue Security Software Level 3

Ezula Adware Level 1

I don't particularly notice anything slow or problematic with my PC, which runs XP SP3 and I have Norton Internet Security. I did however have a recent instance of credit card info theft which resulted in new cards, although I don't know if it had anything to do with the highjacker or trojan.

Here is the HJT result: I hope the Word Wrap is OK for you.

OK. Bump.

However, in the interim I have used some of the tools in the Security Help Tools tab. Specifically, House Call, McAfee Security Scan Plus, and Secunia.

Secunia found some updates, but nothing else, including my own Norton found any significant threats. Maybe I have nothing to worrry about. Maybe this is just PCPitstop trying to sell something?

Well I recently downloaded and *tried* to install PCTools Firewall. Out of the box it had problems, the setup downloads and runs another setup (ThreatFire) that stalls out and freezes the pc (unless you are in safe mode).

I've gone into Safemode & almost have my virus killed. However, upon restarting my machine each time, I get a convincing looking Open File Security Warning. If I leave it alone - all seems well. If I try to close it or cancel it or run it, the popups start & my screen turns blue.
The link on the Security Warning says "C:Usersowner\Desktop\sdasetup[1].exe, but it actually links to www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor-antivirus. If you didn't know better - it's quite convincing looking.

After a snafu caused by PCTools Registry Mechanic (RM) - see Registry Checker nightmare [casued by Registry Mechanic] - I decided to uninstall it. To say their tech support is lame is to put it mildly. Their excuse: "We are very busy after getting an editors choice award." The result: it takes 10 days to get an e-mail reply from their tech "support" (no phone support available). Therefore, I thought I'd pose the question here so I get an answer before the end of the year.

The RM program does not show up on the Windows 98 SE Control Panel Add/Remove list but it does have an uninstall utility in the RM program group.

Given that RM made my computer completely useless I'm concerned about the fact that I cannot remove it using Windows Add/Remove. Is there anything in the registry or anywhere else I should check after running their uninstall program to make sure it's completely out of my life?

I need help - and I know one "simple" solution is to not use this software and buy something different - so please avoid recommending that one. So...after I installed PCtools Spyware Doctor with antivirus my computer experienced crashes. I uninstalled PCtools for 10 days, no crashes. Installed it and get crashes every day. I installed BlueScreenView to read the minidump files (I have 23 files and all are almost identical).

Bug check string: Driver_irq_not_less_or_equal
The error code (stop code) for BSOD is - 0x000000d1
Caused by driver: tcpip.sys

Can anyone help me? PLEASE! The crashes are totall random - I might get one after 5 or 6 hours, or get 2 in 15 minutes regardless of what applications I am using.

I attached my most recent dmp file.

Hi and welcome to TSF.

I'd still like to see something from Gmer - please delete your existing version, then follow these instructions:

Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop. It will be a randomly named executable.Before scanning, make sure all other running programs are closed and no other actions like a scheduled antivirus scan will occur while the scan is being performed. Do not use your computer for anything else during the scan.
Double click the exe file.
The program will begin to run, and perform an initial scan. If possible rootkit activity is found, you will be asked if you would like to perform a full scan. Click No.
In any case, after the initial scan is complete, click on the Save button, and save the log file somewhere you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and attach it in your reply.

I have a problem with several computers (laptops) which made me suspect a virus. I cannot unhide the hidden files and folders. I downloaded the free version of PCTools antivirus, and it reported the HackTool.HideWindows malware. This seems to have been removed by the antivirus, but the damage remains. I cannot view hidden files and folders.

Can someone tell me how to repair the damage so that I can view hidden files and folders?
Also, I suspect that Cornflicker is there as well, as it shows up on my company PC (running corporate McAffee) every time I take my thumb drive from one of the infected computers to my company PC.

I have run a HiJackThis scan, and attached it. I also ran TrendMicro's rootkit tool, which reported no rootkits.

Hey guys. I have a problem with my firewall. It was running fine until yesterday when it was upgraded. I've googled the problem until I'm blue in the face and cant seem to find any help at all. The best I get is from PC Tools forums saying "We are currently investigating the problem". Yeah? thanks guys!!!!!.... When I start up my computer I get the following message
- FWService.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience -
then the usual "do you wish to send an error report" crap. Clicking to see what data the error report contains gives me the following

Recently I set up a computer for a friend from scrap parts I had. The computer was installed with XP pro and everything was going all good, until today.
He has been connected to his neighbors internet and it was working up until probably 4 or so hours ago. Nothing changed at all just suddenly it wouldn't acquire an IP address. I have tried letting him use my wireless adapter to be sure it wasn't the one he was using, but no success. I tried removing his new wireless mouse and keyboard to be sure that was not a problem, and still no success. I did a system restore to a day before when the internet worked fine, and again no success. So finally out of desperation we restored the computer and formatted it with windows xp pro again, everything is fresh we installed the wireless adapter and tried to connect, as you guessed it no cigar. I am currently connected to his neighbors internet (win7 x64 premium) and have no issues whatsoever, the signal isn't perfect but definitely adequate. What is going on? What can we do to resolve this issue? It seems if anything would fix that it would be an entire clean install of Windows, however that's not the case. Any idea's or input is appreciated, Thanks in advance

My computer cannot acquire an I.P. address, no matter what network i connect to. Its running Windows XP SP2 and Ubuntu dual boot, and I can't connect to a wireless network in either.

I used to be connected to a wireless network which only accepted my MAC Address and I had no problems with that. I moved house and haven't had an internet connection since I moved apart from an ethernet cable connected to another computer. I tried to plug this ethernet into my computer, but the IP couldn't be acquired. I tried to use my phone as a modem, and got the same problem. I also brought my computer to another house to try connect it to their wireless and again received the same problem. If I set the I.P. to one in the range manually, it says its connected, but no websites will load. I have tried every solution I found online and none worked.

I have had to reload windows XP on a Phillips LS1600 desktop PC. Previously the pc linked wirelessly to my home network although it was a bit difficult to get the MSI 802.11b/g wireless LAN to acquire an IP address. Since reloading the operating systems it has again been impossible to get the pc to link to the wireless network stating that the pc cannot acquire an ip address. I have tried a Netgear WG111T usb wireless adaptor and a Belkin 7050 usb wireless adaptor but both of these have the same problem. I have updated all drivers, disabled unwanted adaptors, disabled all firewalls, run winsockxpfix, rebooted the router but still connections cannot acquire an IP address. Two other pcs are connecting well.
I am thinking of connecting using a wired connection and update XP (if it will let me). Please advise.

I have a Belkin wireless router attached to my computer. It was set up as an access point, with an IP address of 192.168.0.254. I had some problems with the network today and could not access this unit by typing in the IP in my browser. I feel certain that is the IP address I put in it when setting it up, as I have a record I kept of all the settings. Is there a way to retrieve the IP address to verify that is what it is set to?

HI there,

Okies....all of a sudden my main PC wont acquire an IP address from my wireless network. I suspected that it was the router and binned it, I bought a new and set it up. Its now running and secure and Ive got my laptop connected to it flawlessly.

I guess the problem isnt with the Router or network. So it must be the card or PC?

The belkin wireless utility sees the netwrok and thinks that it is connected with limited connectivity but the windows icon (with the little ball rolling side to side) says that it is acquiring network and goes on for hours until I stop it.

I have tried to repair it and force it to acquire but to avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I can't seem to connect to the internet. I called the comcast tech guy and he told me that the problem is that my computer can't acquire an ip adress. I'm connecting my laptop to the internet with the same modem that I use for the computer so obviously the problem is with the computer. The operating system is Windows XP. This all started after I got a malware program on my computer. I rebooted in safe mode and ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and it got rid of the malware, but since than my computer freezes for 5 minutes on the start up screen every time I reboot and its not connecting to the internet. I can deal with the 5 minute freeze for now, but I really need to connect it to the internet. Anyone have any ideas?
 

A:Can't acquire an IP adress

Give us as much of this info as you can.
Iconfig /all will give us the pc's view of it's network.
Pings will give us some idea as to the connectivity of your pc.

From a Johnwill post on the Networking Forum

Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address> For addresses,follow instructions below&#8230;.

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 206.190.60.37

PING www.yahoo.com
Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. IPV4 for Vista

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I bring my laptop to work every day. I have no problem automatically logging onto the network and using the internet and the wireless printer at work. However, when I come home it will give me a strong signal of my wireless network BUT my internet connection is stuck on "acquiring network address" and always fails to log me on. I try repairing my network connection and that doesn't work either. In order to connect to the internet I have to go to the wireless router and modem and unplug everything, wait a minute, and plug everything back in before it finally connects me to the internet. I recently added a network key (in order to secure my network). I was also messing around with the windows firewall and I must have changed one of my settings either there or on my router because ever since then I have not been able to automatically connect here at home AND it my laptop doesn't see my wireless printer either.

We cannot help you with malware removal here due to forum rules. Please click on the link for Virus/Malware Help in my signature and do as many of those steps as you can and skip those you can't and post there for more help. Once the security experts give you a clean bill of health;
Unplug the power plug to the Modem and the Router. Plug the power into just the Modem (unless you have a modem/router combo) When all the lights come up, plug in the power to the Router (unless combo of course)
Now Go to Start/Run and type inetcpl.cpl and press enter/Connections/LAN Settings. Make sure all the boxes are unchecked. Now go to Start/Run and type ncpa.cpl and press enter. Right click the Local Area connection/Properties scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP-IP)/Properties. Make sure Obtain an IP Address and DNS Server Address Automatically are both checked. Now go to Start/Run and type CMD and press enter. IN the Command Prompt type ipconfig /release and press enter. the IP Address changes to 0.0.0.0 Now type ipconfig /flushdns and press enter. Now type ipconfig /renew. Now type ipconfig /all. You should have a new IP address try it again. If you still cannot connect please include the text output of your ipconfig /all in your next post

My computer is stuck on accruing network address, here is the story

My computer became infected with Win AntiVirus Pro a while ago and I was finally able to remove it using spy-bot and ad-aware. (I mention this since it seems to be the last thing I was doing before the problem started) Problem is the next day I was unable to connect to the internet.
I tired to repair the connection, however as soon as I clicked repair I was immediately advised “windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: renewing your IP address. For assistance, contact the person the manages your network.”
I did contact my ISP and was unable to fix the problem after about 3 hours of troubleshooting. I tried running thorough the Ethernet port and a usb. I am convinced as is my ISP that it is a problem with the computer, not the service, as I can connect to the internet when I plug the modem into a different computer.
When I type in ipconfig /renew I get the message: An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection: The RPC server is unavailable.
I have a dell dimension dim 4500 with windows xp(2002). The modem is connected directly to the computer.
I feel stuck between a rock and hard place since My computer tells me it’s a ISP problem and my ISP tells me it’s a computer problem.
Can anyone help?
 

A:Cannot acquire network address

"The RPC server is unavailable."

Server? Sure it wasn't "service"? If it was service: Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services - the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service should be started and its Startup Type should be 'Automatic.'

Hi,

I reinstalled a driver for my Wirless LAN Mini PCI Adapter in my laptop yesterday and now I can't get an IP address to connect to my network. A long time ago someone changed a setting on this laptop to access a network in a school and when my gf brought it home we no longer could connect to our home network. I fear this same problem has came back now and I don't recall how it was fixed last time.

Anyway, put in the IP address, subnet and DNS #s this AM to try to manually connect and it shows up as connected now but the packets being sent are like 11-24 and received is 0. Can anyone help me get this working? Thanks!

I am running windows XP and have been able to connect to the only non secure wireless network in my range, but with very low connectivity. The signal strength of said network is very low. When connecting to my network it seems to get stuck on the acquiring network address phase, while signal strength and that is very good.

I ran ipconfig/all through command prompt and this what I get:

DHCP and TCP/IP can not be started from Services with out the following error.

Error 1075: The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion.

I've checked the dependencies and all are running.

AFD is the only driver common to both DHCP and TCP/IP so I assumed it is either not running or is corrupt..yet when I try to start AFD from the CMD prompt I get...."service is already running.

I have since disabled my Lan Connection via Network Connections as it just sits there trying to acquire ip without ever timing out.

I also performed a registry scan with Registry Booster in Safe Mode. It reported:

1061 System Errors
205 User Errors, and
1 Third Party Error

A cursory review of the log tells me the majority have to do with poorly uninstalled programs. I did NOT let Registry Booster fix anything.

A few days ago the internet randomly stopped working and remained stuck on 'acquiring network address', or something like that, before coming up with a 'limited or no connectivity' message. Apparently our Linksys router was the problem, since my husband's computer has normal internet access when wired directly to the modem. Recently we bought a new router, still a Linksys (though this one is model WRT54GS V7.2) which has the exact same problem -- the install software won't even run because it apparently can't detect a new gateway or router. We've tried installing the router software on my own computer following the same instructions from the install CD, but ended up with the exact same problem as on my husband's computer. We've tried restarting and refreshing the IP numerous times, though none have worked.
We also tried plugging in the router to the modem and a computer without running the installation software, and the computer recognizes the router enough to again search for the network address, though it never finds anything.
What could be the problem?

Both our computers run Windows XP SP2, and though the router we use is capable of wireless we connect all our computers to it through regular ethernet wires.

I am working on a Dell Inspiron 8100 laptop for a friend. I upgraded his firmware to the lastest version from the Dell.com website. Now his 3Com 10/100 Mini PCI Ethernet card (built in to mboard) won't successfully acquire an ip address.

I have the laptop direct wired into my Linksys WRT54G router. Two other computers are successfully connected through the same router with no problems. I have included the Dell laptop into the correct workgroup name.

It successfully pings (127.0.0.1) but when I type "ipconfig" there is no ip address, no subnet mask, no default gateway.

If I type in "ipconfig /all" it shows a physical address, dhcp enabled and autoconfiguration enabled. No other info shows up.

I typed in "ipconfig /release" and it says it is already released.

When I type in "ipconfig /renew" it gives me an error message saying RPC server not available.

I have uninstalled the client and server from the NIC properties. I then deleted the NIC and rebooted twice. I still get the same results.

I upgraded the driver from the 3Com card with same results.

Any suggestions to correct this problem would be greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to get connected to Verizon DSL for the first time, I have a Dell Dimension running XP, I've gone through the install and can't get a connection. I have the icon in the task bar showing the two computers trying to connect, when I hold the mouse over it it says: "acquiring network address", but it never does. I was on the phone today with Verizon tech support, he tried everything he could think of: couldn't ping anything, tried setting manual ip addresses instead of automatic, tried connecting with USB instead of Ethernet, his final suggestion was that the nic is faulty, however this doesn't make sense to me since it didn't work through USB either. The computer can connect fine through my old dial up connection.
I tried the install with a second computer (Toshiba laptop) and it worked fine, so the problem is definitely something to do with the Dell. I don't have a screenshot or text file for ipconfig on the Dell, but I know that all of the addresses are 000.000.0.0 (or something like that).
Thanks in advance for any help.

I searched around the internet and have come up with nothing.

A few nights ago there was a real bad thunderstorm and afterwards my computer and xbox 360 were not connecting to the internet. I have a desktop that is connected to my house's LAN through a cable. After checking out a number of different things I have come to believe it is definatly the computer and Xbox which are suffering from some sort of problem. My mom's laptop (which I am on right now) has no problem connecting wirelessly or with a cable. I have moved my computer down to the office and plugged it in with a working cable and it will not connect.

The computer will say that a cable is unplugged, try to connect, will not be able to acquire a network address, then the icon will switch to a yellow warning sign and say there is little to no connectivity. I ran a loop to test the network card and it tested ok (4 returns). This is really stumping me. Any help is much appreciated.

I have a network with 3 computers using a Netgear router and a Netgear adapter on 2 computers. One of the PCs when booted up is not connecting. It tries to find the IP address but can't. I try to "repair" it and it again tries to acquire the network address, but can't. The only way to get it to connect is to go into Properties/Network Connections and check the box to have Windows do the configuration. What do I need to do to get it to connect automatically again?

Hello.

I just reinstalled Windows XP Home Edition on my laptop. I plugged the laptop to my router via ethernet and did all the necessary updates.

The problem is, I cannot connect to the router wirelessly. An IP address cannot be acquired, I think.

The ethernet connection is fine, and also other computers can connect wirelessly without an issue. I searched around this site and google, but I can't figure what to do.

Thank you in advance for your time!

Hey Guys

I have an issue connecting to the internet and after reviewing the forums I couldn't find a solution applicable to my situation so here goes.

I use a PC at work and we are in the process of moving so we disconnected our internet early. For a couple weeks I need internet connection at work and found our neighbor who is allowing me access to their service. They gave me their password but when I try and connect it constantly says acquiring network address. My smartphone has no issue being connected.

Here is as much information as I can gather

Dell PC Inspiron
Dell 1450 wireless adapter with correct driver installed
wireless zero configuration disabled (using Dell)
have released and renewed ip in command function

Any help would be appreciated

I have a Fujitsu Pi1505 notebook running Windows XP that has an Intel 3945ABG built wireless chip. It has been working fine on my home network in the UK using WEP.
I recently took it to France and had connectivity problems with hotspots. It worked fine if it was an unprotected network, but if it was protected then I entered the key and it then spent ages trying to acquire the network address and finally gave up. The key was OK, because if I mistyped it then it complained.
When I got home the notebook connected straight back onto my home network. The strange thing is, I went around to a friends house where it had connected many times before and that failed as well. Any ideas?
I have downloaded the latest driver from the Fujitsu web site and it has not helped.

Hi everyone, my family recently updated (or so we thought) to Sky Broadband using our Netgear router, and it's been giving us some problems. My computer upstairs connects to this one through the wireless router, and suddenly it won't let me get past the 'acquiring network address' stage. The icon in the taskbar constantly flashes from red to green, and I can't access the internet at all. This downstairs one that's directly connected to the router works though, so I have no idea why mine won't. I'm running Windows XP. I'm definitely a beginner, so please don't get too technical!

Thanks in advance for any help,

When I change the encryption to WEP or disable it, it doesn't work at all.

Uh, never mind. I disabled all my firewalls, changed the encryption to 'Disable', applied it, took out the usb router, restarted, plugged it back in, changed the connection back to WPA, entered the pass phrase (with caps lock on, despite it telling me to turn it off) and all is working fine. This is now from the upstairs/my computer.

Turns out this router USB thingy is called NETGEAR WG111v2, just in case that matters to anyone!

Hi All

I'm a programmer, but not in PC languages. There's an Excel file, available from a website, whose contents need to be downloaded and converted to another format. The actual conversion - i.e. the parts after downloading and saving as .csv - is done, but I'm wondering if the first part could be automated. The site does not provide FTP access - it's just a "right-click and download" situation.

So, my question is:
1. Can a simple batch file (or whatever) be created to download a specific named file from a specific site?
2. Additionally, can the file be saved as .csv (from Excel) at the same time.

At the moment I have to leave clunky instructions to the user to navigate to the site, right-click, etc., then call the conversion.

Thanks in advance.

I'm on Windows XP I have a D-Link Dir-655 wireless router connected to my cable modem.

The router worked for well over a year & I went away from home for a few days & turned my PC stuff off. When I came home I tried connecting & no webpage would load.

I called my cable company & they reset my cable modem & still nothing. I connected my cable modem to the PC directly & everything works fine, so that isn't the problem.

>I went out & bought a new Belkin N300 wireless router & it too has the exact problem of not working on connecting to the internet.

>I tried new Ethernet cable cords.

>I hooked up my modem & router in the correct order & tried it before my PC was turned on & after.

>I tried resetting my router.

>I changing different DNS numbers >I tried switching between automatic & a manual static IP in Control Panel > Network & Internet Connections > Network Connections > Local Area Connection.

>I tried run > cmd > 'netsh winsock reset catalog', which worked once before for me a long time ago.

Nothing works! Basically when I connect my cable modem to my router, it can not acquire a IP, no matter what. It either finishes & say's 'Internet connects limited' & won't connect to any webpage or will keep trying continuously to connect without ever doing so.

What is the problem?

I recently re-installed windows xp and after I did it I have had trouble connecting to the internet.

What will happen is I will connect to my wireless router and it will start connecting fine, but then it wont be able to acquire the network address for some reason. It will start trying to acquire it but then not work, it is sooooo frustrating. My computer is an MSi wind notebook. I have been on countless forums looking for an answer but I cannot find one, so any help would be great . Also sometimes after a while it will say "Limited or no connectivity" and show a warnig type sign at the bottom of the screen.
Thank you, Leo.

I have been using WLX to import photos from my camera. I start out by creating a new folder which is automatically placed as a sub folder to one named Ebay which contains photos I use when selling on Ebay. If I select all imported photos and drag and drop them to the new folder, it also includes all the photos in the Ebay folder. How can I select a folder that I want to use as the parent folder for the new one and how do I prevent the inclusion of the photos contained in the parent folder?

I'm having problem with a computer at work. Yesterday, I moved ithe computer from one area of the office building to another and when I hooked it back up to the network, it kept giving me a message saying "aquiring network address" and then it said that it was unable to acquire the network address. It worked fine when it was hooked up in another office, but now since I moved it, it won't let me connect to the network. Please Help!
 

A:Unable to acquire network address

You are probably on a different subnet or domain. The only way to resolve this is to talk to your network admin and tell them that you have moved your desk.

DHCP Client will not start from services menu and neither will TCP/IP all other networking services appear to be started and working.

DHCP dependencies are:

AFD Networking Support Environment
TCP/IP Protocol
IPSEC driver
TCP/IP dependencies are:
AFD

Since the TCP/IP's only dependency is AFD I suspect it has been deleted or corrupted. How do I go about fixing that?

Hi Folks,

I'm trying to connect my work laptop to the internet. It's a DSL connection which goes thru a router, then thru a wireless router. The laptop isn't wireless so I'm using a LAN cable to connect the laptop to the wireless router. It's showing a connection with "Limited or no Connectivity".

A:Inspiron E1505 cannot acquire network address :/

Have you tried factory resetting the router via the pin hole in the back and setting it up afresh.

Don't use any backed up configs.

EDIT When factory resetting a router, ensure you hold the button in for at least 15secs for it to properly reset.

I think the rootkit is gone for now, the network won't acquire the IP address. If I manually set the IP address, it will not register DNS properly, however the internal file sharing network works using this method, but no the internet access. I've tried running the Network Diagnostic tool, and NetShell utilities to reset the TCP/IP stack and Winsock, but same problem still exists. I even tried the repair install. I'm guessing the removal of the rootkit did something to the registry that prevents the IP from being assigned automatically. As you can see in the log, I've used many tools to try to fix it.

I have an HP pavilion mx 70 desktop and an hp laptop. The desktop is connected via ethernet to the router, and the laptop is wireless. The modem is separate. I have cable highspeed internet access. Up until about a week ago both computers were able to access the internet. All of a sudden, neither computer could get on the internet through the router. I have to run the ethernet cable directly to the modem, and then I can get on the internet.

I can't acquire a network address - it just gets stuck, and I get the same message, this connection has little or no connectivity.

The router was a linsys. I thought that was the problem, so I bought a new d-link router, but same issues - no internet.

D-link tech support walked me through assigning a static address and pinging, but no luck. I can't even get into the router by typing its address into the browser.

Device Manager doesn't indicate that there is any problem with the nic card, but I did uninstall it and then reboot.

I have turned off, reset, etc. both the modem and router.

I have also tried release and also tried somethin with winsock

I am just computer literate enough to function, and to get myself in trouble, but I would appreciate any help.

Hey all, I would like to apologize in advance if this problem has been posted numerous times before and is easily resolved. I've worked with computers for a major part of my life, but I've never been in-depth with them.

Alright, now straight to the point.

Specifications:
My laptop is a Sony Vaio VGN-Z16SN running on Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3.

Problem:
For internet access, I've always connected my computer via ethernet cable and never have I had any problems with it until yesterday at least. When I connect it the status shows "Limited or no connectivity", I've tried connecting repairing the connection but it returns with "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address". The IP address shows 0.0.0.0 and Subnet Mask 0.0.0.0. Under 'Services' in the administrative tools, I've checked that the DNS Client as well as the DHCP Client are both running. I've tried manually entering the IP Address, but to no avail, the connection status would show "Connected" but but I am unable to actually use the internet showing "Server not found" on my internet browsers, therefore I set it back to Auto. Under command prompt, whenever I type ipconfig /renew the following error would occur:

Hello,
I purchases a Sony Vaio Intel i3 2 weeks ago largely because its a Sony and because of the Wireless Display it offered using Netgear Push2TV 1000.
My first day the WiDi worked perfectly but then I got busy installing and updating the computer.
And now, two weeks later, when I attempted to connect to P2TV the TV screen just says "Could not obtain network address".
I updated the drivers. Nothing changed.
Reset the adapter. Nothing changed.
Enabled My Wifi/checked for Intel Wireless PAN DSCP server/checked firewall. Nothing happened.
I looked up other people having the same issue and there seems to be a lot and they all agree that there is no cure in sight. Apparently, BestBuy even had the balls to tell some of them to restore the computers to its original factory setting to resolve the issue which is pathetic.
Just want to check if anyone here figured this puzzle out yet.
Thank you.

5 days ago, I ran Microsoft Security Essentials on my laptop to remove a suspected virus. Since then my computer has been running faster, but now I am unable to connect to the internet. Neither my wired nor wireless connection will connect. Both spin in circles saying "Acquiring IP Address." I have since connected two other devices to the connection, so I now that my issue is not laying with the router. Since this issue has started, I have been scouring the internet for solutions and haven't been able to find one. I have checked the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties and they are set to obtain automatically. Because of the things that I have seen on the blogs I have come across and what I am seeing on my computer, I am wondering if I have some form of malware attached to my system.

Any help would be greatly appriciated and a HUGE thank you in advance.
