Just recently reinstalled windows xp hom on my computer, updated to servic pack 3, an cannot connect to the internet. When i do the ip config /all cmd i get this:

Then i try the ipconfig /release cmd and renew cmd, i get nothing but error " unable to contact your DHCP server" I've already done th winsock and ip reset cmd and still get nothing. Is this a driver issue? What can i do? Thanks for your help!!

I would try updating the drivers on the NIC before doing anything else.

If this doesn't fix the issue, you'll want to verify that the network cable you're using is working properly and that the port you're plugged into is also ok. If your router has multiple LAN ports, simply plug into another.

If the ports are fine and the cable is fine and drivers don't fix the issue, your NIC may be broken.

Could you connect before the reinstall?

Question relates to your router's dhcp server actually working

If you believe you have set up everything correctly, then probably you can try this winsockfix, maybe can solve your problem.
