    HP pav 520w
    xp home (pre service pack, whistler private)

    i installed sp2 after seeing a sp was never installed,

    the network sits and acquires and never resolves an ip address.
    i go to do a repair and the last three parts of the repair fails in error.
    i have done an ipconfig /release and it was good then went to the ipconfig /renew and failed

    I have tried:

    netsh int ip interface reset resetlog.txt <-- both netsh were rewritten
    (netsh interface ip reset resetlog.txt)
    netsh int ip set address DHCP
    (netsh interface set name="local connection 3" source=dhcp)
    and try again..

    Though #2:

    Under TCP/IP Properties,
    set a static IP for a little while,
    and then revert to DHCP.
    I do not know what network segment you are using,
    for most small routers:

    Set a default DNS server to the
    router IP, usually:

    both attepts failed and the acquiring continues

    What Brand and Model router are you using? I may be able to help you get on the right subnet with a static IP.

    DHCP wasn't started. I went into Services and found it was set to manual and stopped. I changed the settings to automatic and start. I can get online now.
