DHCP Fails to load

It sounds like you have a corrupt winsock entry. If you get the SVCHOST.exe error at start up try this.

Click Start/Run
Type regedit then click OK

Delete the two registry keys listed below...



** Restart the computer

Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections

Right click on your Local Area Connection icon and left click on properties

Click on the Install button

Select protocol and click Add

Click the Have Disk button

Type "c:\windows\inf" and click OK

Select Internet Protocol TCP/IP and click OK

close the properties window and restart the computer

Your Network card should now properly request the IP address from your routers DHCP server.
