"Release and Renew IP Address
Click on start menu
Programs/Accessories/Command Prompt (not Run!)
type in the command prompt window
ipconfig/all

ipconfig/release

ipconfig/renew"

wait to verify a valid IP address is obtained, it might be necessary to do a "Cold Boot" after this. By that I mean a shut down, not a re-start.



<-------------------- serves no purpose for cleaning a conection...... Your ip is leased by your isp.... your computer doesn't just get to make a new one up..... This does nothing at all for you. . . other than to verify you are connecting to the isp's gateway. :)

"Also to speed up your web browsing

Command Prompt
type ipconfig /flushdns "


<----------------- your dns address is also leased for a specific amount of time and such if you use this command it will only reset your dns address "IF" your lease has expired and delete the old address..... and that means to the common man that it is a waste of time since your Pc automatically does this every time it is turned off and on. But it could be useful if you were to leave your PC on for a couple of weeks

I kinda azzumed he was talking about a wireless connection; sometimes a "repair connection" when you have connectivity issues does make it faster/connect better, but not, like you said, due to flushing your IP to get a different one, or even the dns

If you delete a netowork card [Or any hardware for that matter], XP will just reinstall it upon rebooting. That is why disabling is the best choice - your OS won't allocate addl resources to the hardware and won't try to "reinstall" after every reboot

EDIT: so just disable it from Device Mgr
