Can not connect to DHCP-server

February 14, 2013 at 12:39:53
Specs: Windows XP
So here's the problem my PC say it cant connect to the DHCP-server (I tried both my router and connecting directly to my ISP and the result is the same)

So what have I done so far to fix it?
I have tried "ipconfig /release" and "ipconfig /renew"
I have run different cleaning programs such as C-Clean and spybot.
I have scanned it for viruses with McAfee.
I have tried "netsh int ip reset C:\resetlog.txt" and it looked promising. After I ran it I had connection to my net. But after rebooting the PC I can't connect to the DHCP-server and "netsh int ip reset C:\resetlog.txt" does'nt work.

So what happens?
When I disconnect the UTP-cable the PC say "network no longer connected".
When I connect the UTP-cable the PC say "connected at 1GB/s". But as I said I cant connect to the DHCP-server and if I try to type in an IP-address in the IPv4 config. I cant ping or connect to the other PC's in my LAN.

So what can I do?
I can ping 127.0.0.1.
I get an 165.x.x.x IP-address.

So anyone that can give a tip what's up with my PC and how I can fixit?

Was it working?

What changed the situation if so?

A few more thoughts.

Try connecting another comp & see if it works.
If it does, do a config /all and compare all settings.

If it doesn't, set the router as DHCP server.

2nd screenshot on the above page is a sample of what it may look like.
Go to Setup -> Basic Setup. Scroll down until you see DHCP Server (Enable) (Disable) radio buttons. If it is disabled, select Enable
