Hi There,
I can't renew my IP address on my other computer. I keep getting an error message when I try to repair the connection saying 'Unable to renew IP address'
I have tried to refresh/ renew my IP address in my command prompt but it won't renew it. Has anyone got any ideas please.

Go to the command prompt if using xp:

type "ipconfig /release *"
then type "ipconfig /renew *"

That should sort it!

Ive tried the 'cmd' prompt ipconfig /release etc. but it still won't renew my ip adress. I still get the stupid 169.xxx.xxx.xxx. i had this error before and the only way I could sort it out was to reinstalled XP, that worked! but it's a pain in the butt. I don't want to have to do this as I have to much software on computer which I don't want to lose.

The only other thing is that the hosts file has been modified, go to run and type %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc. Open the file hosts file using notepad and remove all references that dont have a # in front of them. A virus may have added them in!
