    What general symptoms would indicate the need to rebuild the tcp/ip stack?

    Can you be more specific?

    Sounds to me like you're posing a question, not looking for a solution?

    There are lots of different things that would persuade me that a TCP/IP reset would be useful. Rather depends on the context.

    the main symptom is nothing else seems to work!

    Then I remove EVERYTHING from the networking section of windows and start again...

    that usually works if all else fails!

    Yep I agree with Clyde. It is a last-ditch attempt to recover an OS. Is this a problem you have or a hypothetical(check spelling) question?

    The general symptoms are:

    When you try to release and renew the IP address by using the Ipconfig program (Ipconfig.exe), you may receive one of the following error messages.

    An error occurred while renewing interface 'Internet': An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket.

    The page cannot be displayed

    Initialization function INITHELPERDLL in IPMONTR.DLL failed to start with error code 10107

    An error occurred while renewing interface local area connection:

    an operation was attempted on something that is not a socket. Unable to contact driver Error code 2.

    The operation failed since no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation.

    The attempted operation is not supported for the type of object referenced.

    That looks about right to me, if an interface isn't getting an IP from DHCP and the hardware/cable is OK I usually reinstall TCP/IP as a next step.

    Failing that try reinstalling the NIC driver?
