Ok so I've spent hours browsing forums and trying the suggestions I found and NOTHING has helped. So I lost the ability to connect to the internet on my desktop computer. The problem seemed to arise out of nowhere, and I made no major changed. The problem occured when my husband was here so who knows what he may have done :D Ok so when trying to repair my internet connection I get the message "cannot renew ip address" (it is a 169.254... APIPA) so I have tried the following...

-disabling firewall and antivirus
-trying new cables
-speaking to my service provider which was totally useless
-system restore
-checked that "obtain IP address automatically" and "obtain DNS server address automatically" were selected in TCP/IP
-reset router
-eliminated the wireless router all together and connected cable modem directly to desktop
-reset modem
-CMD netsh int ip reset reset.txt and netsh winsock.reset.catalog and rebooted

This is an older computer I am trying to use just for my business so I really need to get this resolved. I am running XP. Any help with this would really be appreciated! It's getting very frustrating! Thank you so much in advance!

Are you still having problems with your issue?
It has been 12 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.

OK only item that I see with a problem is your Audio Controller Do you have sound on your system?
Right click on that entry with the yellow exclamation mark and then click on Uninstall.
Reboot your system and see if the issue shows up again in your Device Manager.

Now go to Start then to Run
Type in cmd then click Enter
In the new window at the C prompt type in ipconfig /flushdns and click Enter
When done type Exit then Reboot your system.
Try your renew now.
