    Hopefully someone can help here. a PC on our network lost it's network connection. In the Network IP settings all our PC's are set to obtain IP address automatically and if I manually set these it regains network connectivity. I have checked on another PC when doing IPCONFIG /RELEASE and it release the settings & when requested IPCONFIG /RENEW the domain server re-issued an IP address so there appears no DCHP issue on the server. Also if the IP settings are made manually, when the PC reboots it goes back to automatically obtain IP address. I have a sneaky suspicionj there maybe some at large worming around even through Super Anti Spyware, Malware Bytes & AVG (paid Network version) can't find anything.....Heeellllp!

    First Name:
    would you check the status of the following services
    what version of windows do you have ?

    post back the status - started/stopped and automatic/manual
    Check your Services are Started on all PCs:
    • COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
    • Computer Browser
    • DHCP Client
    • DNS Client
    • Network Connections
    • Network Location Awareness
    • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
    • Server
    • TCP/IP Netbios helper
    • Wireless Zero Configuration (XP wireless configurations only)
    • WLAN AutoConfig (Vista wireless configurations only)
    • Workstation

    Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

    All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic (or perhaps manual).

    If a service is not running, open it's properties and check the dependencies. Check each of the dependencies and see which one is preventing the service from running.

    Checking the event log is also a good idea here, there may be clues to what is failing.
    Start > control panel > administrative tools > event Viewer
