Windows XP TCP/IP no traffic problem

This morning my desktop had a very odd problem. There was NO TCP/IP traffice at all.My desktop computer has two NIC. One is an old Intel ethernet, the other is a Belkin 802.11g PCI card. Both of them showed as connected, but 0 sent and 0 received. There were also no IP addresses on either of the two. I can still ping localhost (, but not any other IPs.
I have another Windows XP installed on the desktop, and I could boot it without any problems. So it is the particular windows XP. Purely magic software issue.
I saw this problem before on a co-worker’s laptop, and we had to re-install windows XP to ‘fix’ it.
I re-loaded the Windows XP but not as ‘a new installation’ but as ‘upgrade’. After two hours of reloading, I saw the Windows XP desktop screen, no IP!!
Google it, and here is what I found:
Type this command in the Start | Run box, reboot, and see if the
problem is fixed:

   netsh winsock reset catalog

If it isn’t, go to Device Manager, remove the network adapter for the
LAN connection, reboot, and let XP re-install the network adapter.

If that doesn’t fix it, what are the details of the error log messages
about TCP/IP services?

I tried Mr. Winogard said, and followed the instruction from the netsh to reboot my desktop, and instantly saw my router was busy during the booting time!!
Here is the real Fix!!!

    是吗? 我不懂,不是TCP/IP 不懂,而是英文看不懂!

  2. My brother suggested I would possibly like this web site.
    He was once entirely right. This publish actually made my day.
    You can not imagine simply how so much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
