Cool "Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection. Cannot proceed" - Solution

This morning I faced a problem with my office PC. It just refused to take an IP from my DHCP server. A repait of the network connection gives this error message:

Quote:
Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection. Cannot proceed.
After a bit of searching I found a solution somewhere that actually worked. Here you go:

Solution 1 - Repair TCPIP.SYS

Download the file Update for Windows XP Service Pack 2 (KB884020) and install it. It may fix the corrupted TCPIP.SYS file which could resolve this issue.

Solution 2 - TCP/IP stack repair
  1. Start > Run > CMD to open a command prompt.
  2. Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. Type in the following command in the command prompt and press Enter.

    Code:
    netsh int ip reset reset.log
  3. Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults. Type in the following command in the command prompt and press Enter.

    Code:
    netsh winsock reset catalog
  4. Reboot the machine.

One of these solutions should resolve the error and the workstation should have a leased IP once rebooted.
