I came home yesterday to find that I couldnt connect to the internet, I called my isp, and they said i'm receiving a full signal, but my computer just isn't communicating with my modem. The ip address is 0.0.0.0. Of course the isp can't help with this problem, and since my computer is past the warranty, neither can microsoft or hp (not for free anyways). The person at Qwest (isp) said I might have to "reset my netcard" (??? She had a really think accent), but I have no clue what that is or how to do it. Please tell me someone here can help me! :)

From a Johnwill post

IP addresses of all zeros are normally caused by one of the following.

Diagnosis:
  1. DHCP Service not running.
  2. Duplicate IP address on the network.
  3. Bad NIC card drivers.
  4. Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
  1. Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.
  2. Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, restart (power cycle) the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.
  3. Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.
  4. Replace the Network Interface Card.
