Please advise what to do. Owing to this, I could connect using a dial-up connection but was not able to browse any sites, then I thought maybe the dial up is messed up, so I bought hi-speed cable internet, same problem, wouldn't connect. Then I popped the Windows XP Pro CD in the drive and tried a "Repair Install" so that it could replace any missing or corrupt files, still no luck. I had to then nuke the PC, format the HDD with NTFS, and then install XP over it, now finally the internet is working however, I still get the same error message when I type ipconfig on the dos prompt...its driving me nuts!!

Any ideas?!?!

Thanx!
Robin

Can anyone suggest how to resolve the issue above, as I have the same problem on my machines and have rebuilt them 3 times and it happens again. Any suggestions ???

Please

I found the problem to have been caused by spyware, adware and the like.. Unfortunately there was too much cr@p on the PC to pin down which bit causes it. But anyway I resolved the issue by removing as much spyware as possible without a net connection, then re-applying service pack 2. Once SP2 was re-applied the IP problems were resolved and I could then do online scans and update defs etc.

All seems well for now.

Default Re: Windows XP IPConfig Error Message

THE SOLUTION IS HERE:
scroll down to see original problem.







had the same problem with ipconfig but after trying some of the suggestion from this post, I found out my "Routing and Remote Access" (Services) was disabled. Once I set it to automatic and start the service, the ipconfig finally start working.

I'm using a IBM thinkpad t42...

I get the error below when I do an ipconfig. Everything works ok though,
browsing, file sharing etc. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Rob.

(PC is an IBM thinkpad running XP SP2)



Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\Documents and Settings\robert>ipconfig

Windows IP Configuration

An internal error occurred: The operation completed successfully.

Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for further help.

Had the same problem. Try starting these services:

Remote procedure call (RPC)
Routing and Remote Access

Started them and voila -- ipconfig works.

netsh int ip show ipaddress had a more informative error message.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Same error and solution as above (starting rounting service)

Same laptop as well - IBM TP42. Wonder if there was something from IBM that broke it?

Also, wondering if this service is normally auto in XP default configuration?

Default IPConfig Fails in XP

Did anyone ever provide a resolution? I am getting a similar error:

C:\Windows\System32>ipconfig /all

Windows IP Configuration

An internal error occurred: The request is not supported.

Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for further help.

Additional information: Unable to query host name.


I've tried everything in this post and even called the helpless desk.
Any other suggestions? Please IM at samooreatl

Default ipconfig, an internal error occurred, unknown media status

An issue that you might come across related to the IBM T42 Series Laptops and Wireless Home Networks.

Basically, while trouble shooting a problem related to:
- A Wireless Network.
- A Wired Network where the data jack might not be active.
- A VPN connection problem.

You may notice strange behavior from the Laptop Network Card.


Symptoms of the problem:
#1 ipconfig command gives the following error.
Windows IP Configuration

An internal error occurred: A device attached to the system is not functioning.

Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for further help.

Additional information: Unknown media status code.


#2 NIC card gets Automatically Disabled within 30 seconds of unplugging a live cable. You also cannot enable the NIC card again without pugging in a cable into a live data jack.
(Normally, it should only show "cable unplugged" or "Not connected". It should not be automatically disabling the NIC cards.)


Cause:
The Ethernet Network Card Driver may be too new. The Nic driver that is available through the Windows Update website appears to not be compatible with the IBM Thinkpad T42 Series laptops.
(It may be other laptops also, but it appears from the newsgroups, that most people having the same issue, all use the IBM T42 series laptops with WinXP-SP2)


Solution:
#1
- Use the WinXP Rollback Driver feature to rollback to an earlier version.
- Then do not install the Nic card driver that is available through Windows Update until their driver problem is corrected.

#2
- Download the newest version of the driver from IBM's website.
(IBM has an older version than the Microsoft site, but IBM is more likely to have fully tested any version they offer on their website.)

I am getting this problem on a PC but when I login in Safe Mode it works fine, the ony thing I did recently was add Panda Platnum and it seemed to work fine until I ran a few reboots after clearing out a number of viruses
