Check TCP/IP Properties.

Start, Connect To, Connection, Properties, Scroll Down TCP/IP and highlight, click Properties and check that Obtain DNS and IP address automatically are enabled.

i dont think it would be that as i released \ renewed the ip address in command prompt .........it could be to do with the ethernet controller as the real one (downloaded of their site) didnt work so i installed an ethernet driver from a different mobo but it seems to work

If you're stuck I would buy a new ethernet NIC, they're cheap and more than one can co-exist.

Laptop choose USB or PCMCIA, desktop I'd go for PCI but USB will work.
