I got this error message after my system took itself off my dhcp server. I was online when this happened and evertything was charlie-charlie prior. DHCP client but after each try, it stops automatically. I'v restarted, I'v sfc/scannow. I'v tried restoring but realised i dont have restore points. i'v tried repairing with my OS cd but realised vista's repairing isnt like xp (it doesnt actually recopy the system files).
The network connectivity icon is blinking ok but it cannot read the domain name of my network. In the network and sharing centre, the status is "Identifying... (Public network)". In the Local Area Network Status, Packets are being sent but not received. I think I should be able to browse if i assign ip address manually but i would like to correct this error.
Right now, I am out of ideas.

Re: dhcp client error

Alrightee people, I guess i ran ahead of myself. I should have been patient and done some more research. Well, got to find out that I am not alone in this ship of mine and its like a glitch in the kernel of the OS I am using (Vista Business SP2). Found a post on http://www.vistax64.com/vista-networking-sharing/82945-dhcp-client-service-does-not-start.html that suggested resetting the winsock catalog in the cmd prompt with the commmand netsh winsock reset catalog
Worked fine!
The End.
