Default Can't connect to the internet

trying to get 1 of my computers hooked up and accessing the internet. When I try and do an ipconfig, I am getting all zeros. Then when I try and type ipconfig /renew, I get the following msg "An error occurred while renewing interface local area connection 6; the RPC server is unavailable". What is causing this and how do I solve it?

Also, when I try to use the install the correct drivers for my NIC card, the correct date should be 6/3/09. When I look at device mgr, network adapter it says device is working properly and when i select driver tab, the date of the driver is 10/6/06. I have no idea why this is happening. Any help is appreciated. NIC is a dlink 530TX+


thx

well i was about to say
'if you cant connect to the internet.............. then how are you here?'
but its on a different pc :P

i really dont know either
but have you checked the date that the pc is set at?
or check what the date and time is set for the BIOS
just a stab in the dark here
but maybe it might help
its worth a shot right?

I think I am on the net because I have more than 1 computer. One that is working. The PC in error was working OK but it would take a few reboots before I had access to the net on it though. Date and time are correct.

thx
