I had to reinstall windows XP pro on my system and everything worked fine until it came to setting up my NTL 250 cable modem. I ran the installation CD (ntlworld branded not Vm) and just after it gets to the stage of confirming everything's connected correctly I get an eror message 'Network Adapter Error' it say's that it's unable to renew IP address and has (DHCP) in brackets. I have got it working through usb but whatever do i keep on getting the same message through Ethernet. It worked no problems before I reinstalled xp and I have tried it with my firewall off (windows sp2) - Anyone know why this is happening? Thanks in advance.
