I tried to get the nic on my motherboard to work and got a message that the hardware did not have a Microsoft digital signature, but I continued anyway. Ever since this attempt, I have been getting the following errors in the event viewer and my ip address is not 169.254.x.x, mask 255.255.0.0, instead of its original 192.168.1.x it got from my router.
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: Dhcp
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1006
Time: 8:42:56 PM
Your computer was unable to automatically configure the IP parameters for the Network Card with the network address 000C6EFA9E84. The following error occurred during configuration: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized. .
also i am getting about the same error, all but the last line: support for the specified socket does not exist in this address family.
I have attempted to reinstall tcp/ip, but did not make any difference. I was wondering if there was something I can do to reset winsock files like in pervious windows?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank in advance
