DHCP error

Win XP SR2
configuration
Dell desktop PC connected to router by cable
Dell laptop connected to network wirelessly
Motorola cable modem connected to router by cable

Since this is DHCP and network related I am guessing this is the proper
newsgroup. Help please on how to resolve this.


On bootup of my PC, I receive the following Event Viewer errors

CAUSE
This behavior is because those object classes are considered as user
globals by DCOM and Terminal Server.
However, DCOM and Terminal Server provide the ability to register DCOM
classes as system globals. But, in the case of classes implemented in
services, they should be considered as system globals, unless they had
been explicitly registered as user globals.
I have no idea what any of that means

Where is the DHCP server? Normally, Event ID: 20169 RRAS error. Do you use VPN?

Thanks for the replysoftware? How do I test the contact?

I went to the links you provided. I presume, since I do not have 2
NIC's, I do not have VPN although I don't know how to confirm this.

already been to chicagotech which is where I found

I could find nothing in the links you provided that would help me
troubleshoot. Looks like they were written for tech's, not old guys.
Not saying the answer is not there . . . just I didn't find it.

Assuming you have the DHCP on the router, it seems to me that the computer doesn't talk to the router. So, make sure you have good connection or for a test, assign static IP instead of using DHCP.
