I have a Dell xps m1210. After having turned off my labtop inorder to have a windows update( not sure if this is the root cause) and then turning it back on I am unable to connect to either wireless or via cable.

Also ip config where i got internal error occured. Please Help only computer

Check the device manager for errors on your network card and whether the network card is listet there..
Also check the event viewer for hints on network card errors.

There are no errors on my network card and it is listed. As far as the network card errors in event viewer im not sure what exactly to look for. I dont see anything that really stands out between the last two days. Other than under information type there one event that says : Broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated Controllers: network Controller configured for 100mb full-duplex link. Then another information type: the system detected that network adp. \device\tcpip_(some numbers) was connected to the network, and has initiated normal operation over the netowrk adp. And then a couple seconds later a warning type:Your computer was not able to renew its address from teh network(from teh DHCP Server) for the network card with the network address..... the following error occured: operation was cancelled by user. Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from network address(DHCP). I dont know what any of this means.

Ok so lets start with the wired network card.
Plug a LAN cable from the laptop to the routers LAN port.
Turn on the laptop.
Click Start / Run
Type in CMD and click ok.
In the upcoming window, type in ipconfig /all and press the enter key.
If you get an ip address of 169.254.x.x, your network card was unable to get an ip address automatically from your router.

Then type in ipconfig /release
and then
ipconfig /renew

When finished, type in again
ipconfig /all

Report back the result.

You may have to start CMD as Administrator.
So you can click Start and type into the search field CMD, then rightclick CMD.EXE and choose run as Administrator.
After that, type in the ipconfig commands as mentioned above.
