Solved Need To Repair Network Connection Every Time

June 4, 2012 at 08:59:57
Specs: Windows XP SP3, Intel Pentium Dual, 1.60 GHz, 2.46 Gb
Every time I start Windows XP, I see an icon of Internet connection being established, and then a connection error icon with a pop-up window. When I click on it, I see the connection window with a notification that no IP address has been assigned.

In order to get an Internet connection, I have to click "repair" every time. I have downloaded and used TCP/IP and Winsock repairs without result. I use WIN XP SP3 and run updated Avira and Comodo. I am aware of damage left behind by deleted malware but don't know where to look.

I've read the similar topic http://www.computing.net/answers/ne... , but this wasn't of much help.

If your TCP/IP stack was damaged by malware your best bet is likely to be uninstalling it, reboot, then reinstall it.

Give that a try and report back with regard to whether or not that worked.

Good news, and thanks for responding with the details.

Your repsonse may very well save someone else asking the same question in the future.

Just for the record, I learned something new today.......lol......I've always gone into the interface properties and deleted the TCP/IP stack and then reinstalled it to reset the stack.

Using the netsh command is much faster and simpler and I'll remember to use your method the next time it comes up.

Sorry, the problem surfaces again, with a small difference:

After the start of the Windows, I see the icon of connection error, without the pop-up window. When I click on the connection, in the detailed explanation I read that the computer wasn't provided with the network address.

And when I do the repair, the connection is working again.
