    verify that the NIC is set to use DHCP for both IP & DNS addresses; remove any static values found

    Try this (assuming you're using xp):
    1) Go to device manager (click Start>right click on "My computers">click Properties>in "System Properties", click the "Hardware" tab>click Device Manager)
    2) Locate "Network Adapters". Click on the "+" to expand it and then right click on the device that you see
    3) click "uninstall"
    4) Reboot your machine

    Windows will find and re-install the driver. Open you browser after the install. You should be connected now.
