Network adaptor is not correctly configured to use the IP protocol?

Hi guys, my internet has randomly stopped working. My main computer has a direct link to the router/box but for some reason it wont register. My laptop, which im using now, is wireless but its internet is working fine as well as all the other devices in the house. When i diagnose and repair I come up with the error that my network adapter local area connection is not correctly configured to use the IP protocol. As far as I know drivers are up to date and Im at a loss for what to do next.

The driver software is an Intel(R) 82566DC-2 Network connection

  1. Is the connection permanently gone? Or does it reset every 5-10 minutes? I had a similar problem, where my internet connection(on 1 PC, all other devices work fine) would go off and on every 5 minutes. As you can imagine, I couldn't even stay in online games cause it kept kicking me out.
    Anyway, I searched here and there and I found out that my adapter has a power management option in the device manager tab. I removed all the power management options and the connection is working just fine now!
    I am an amateur on PC hardware/software btw, so don't go too hard on me! Hope i helped you! :)
  2. Seen a few NICS that just wouldn't set a an IP correctly via DHCP, just setup a static IP, especially for a desktop.

    Right click the adapter (in Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections), and click properties. Make sure you didn't un-tick Internet Protocol IP Version 4. Id reset your TCP/IP stack too. For XP give this a whirl - http://xp-tcp-ip-repair.en.softonic.com/. For Win 7, give this link a whirl - http://superuser.com/questions/30995/how-to-reinstall-the-tcp-ip-protocol-driver-on-windows-7
