Hi there! Hope someone can help.

I created an original account created using Windows 2000 (administrator), this works fine. With this account I can browse the Internet, and have not had any problems with Network/Internet

I then created further accounts to use, one with administrative privileges a second without. Both these accounts have trouble accessing the Internet.

I use an ADSL connection together with a modem which provides DHCP information.


I reinstalled TCP/IP and Can ping DNS server by ip address but cannot bring up any web pages. I have tried ipconfig /flushdns and ipconfig/registerdns but I got the following errors (event viewer):

The DHCP allocator has disabled itself on IP address 192.168.100.71, since the IP address is outside the 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 scope from which addresses are being allocated to DHCP clients. To enable the DHCP allocator on this IP address, please change the scope to include the IP address, or change the IP address to fall within the scope.

Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address XXXXXXXXXX. The following error occured:
The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.


Please, please help as I do not know much about DNS :(

Dear csamuels

Thanks for the links, I tried the first website but I think this is realted for a server, I'm experiencing problems on a windows 2000 workstation. The second requires subscription which I currently dont have funds for :( (I'm a student).

I have tried setting a Static ip address, this still does not work (no packets can be received)

Range of DHCP on router is 192.168.1.50 to 192.168.1.100. The ip address I gave before was wrong(sorry).I am getting a valid ip address within range, when I specify an address within this range, say 192.168.1.55 with the primary DNS server 158.43.128.1 it works fine but not for any other
account apart from the Administrator account.

I have aslo checked the subnet mask range, the router uses an ip of 192.168.1.1 with SM 255.255.255.0

I don't think this is a problem.

I have also tried clearing the DNS cache again, but still no success.
