I trying to fix my parents computer it is Windows XP SP2. The internet was working and suddenly quit. I spent all day trying the normal fixes, reset routers, modems etc. The wireless card detects the network but cannot obtain an IP address. I went to services manager and discovered the the DHCP client server cannot start. When set to automatic the DHCP client gets stuck on starting, but never starts, so I set it to manual to try and stop it, no luck. I rebooted then attempted to start the DHCP manually it didn't work but I did receive an error message this time "Could not start DHCP client server on local computer. Error 1053 The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. Also when I try to manually renew the IP address through Dos prompt ipconfig /renew I get an error that the RPC server is unavailable. I need help I have no other ideas of how to fix this problem. There are no other problems using wireless to access the internet on any other computers.
