Internet connection working incorrectly

For the past three days my internet has been connecting very spottily, it will occasionally work for short periods, generally less than ten minutes at a time, but usually it is completely nonresponsive. I've tried the obvious, switching cable ports, switching cables, making sure all's connected fully and reseting the router but none's helped. Using the network diagnostic tool that's part of Windows I'm told that the issue is that the DHCPServer's inability to be correctly contacted. The only other computer using this network has been having identical problems, how can this be corrected?

Thanks much, in advanced.

Have you tried the winsock fix?

I've used it quite a few times on problem customer computers.

Well, this is annoying. By all appearances the connection is behaving correctly, shown by the fact that I am connected, but as I said it was spotty, not absent, so that doesn't prove much. And the diagnostic tool is giving the same result, but I'm not sure wether it matters or not. If I understand it correctly, the DHCPServer is a program used to assign a dynamic IP to my connection, correct? And if the IP is continually pinging and reacting correctly it shouldn't matter? Or am I mistaken?
