    I need to retreive/reset my ip address as I am having a problem with my TCP/IP. I cannot access the internet through my broadband connection. a popup message saying "limited or no connectivity" appears. Also my XP firewall is OFF and I cant access it to turn it back ON due to a problem with "ICP". I cant even establish a new connection. The "Networking" tab in Network Connection settings is GONE!
    I have tried MS Dos commands but my ip address/subnet mask/gateway info dont show, when I retry this the Dos screen fills with thousands of letter "H"..??
    I uninstalled the network card the used my restore cd roms but nothing happened so I created a restore point to undo the uninstall. I have ran McAfee, Spysweeper, NoAdware, Adaware and everything else in my pc protection arsenal but no related treats were detected.
    I have tried everything that I am capable of doing and I am at a loss what to do!
    Please, I appreciate any advice you have for me.

    For 98 or ME, Start, Run, COMMAND to open a DOS window:
    --- or ---
    For 2K or XP, Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

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

    Assuming that you are on a wired connection, are you going through a router or straight into a modem?

    Well, you need to be looking at the cable and/or connections, since it thinks the media is disconnected.

    If this is not a hardware issue, your XP installation may be corrupted.
