    I am running a home wireless network with 7 machines on it. One of the PC's now is unable to connect. It was fine up until recently. I have tried repairing connection, rebooting central modem, etc. It still says 'little or no connectivity', but the network is clearly detected and signal strength is reported as excellent. Setting is for windows to configure automatically and the network is clearly listed at the top. No reported problems with the adaptor. Not sure if there is in fact an adaptor problem now. I have attached the basic system information as a txt file

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and show ...

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

    I have attached the results from the command screen as a word document. The screen printing from the Xirrus program produced a file that was too large.

    I also tried connecting to the router directly using ethernet and it still will not connect. It is getting hung up on 'acquiring IP address'. This makes no sense at all to me as I have 6 other machines operating on the network both cabled and wireless with no problem. This machine was working fine up until a couple of weeks ago. No viruses currently (at least none detected so far).

    Hmmm. I just noticed that DHCP client was not running and when I tried to start it I got error message 1075- "dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion"??? Perhaps this is virus related?

    Quite possibly.

    OK. Should I repost this in the virus section or what would you suggest? Or let's say the machine is clean right now. How do I restore the DHCP service?

    Probably best to post there--be sure to read and follow the instructions in the first sticky thread in the Virus & Other Malware Removal forum.

    Please post a confirmation here that you have done so, and people (me) will wait patiently to see how that turns out.
