How to repair ipconfig?

Does anyone know how to repair ipconfig in an XP system? I was playing around with a router last week and now the IP is set to that of the router, which isn't being used any more. When I try to release the IP it just hangs...

C:\>ipconfig /release

The cursor just sits there on the next line.

The result of this is that I can't use the net at home, since everything either can't be found or can't connect. Any thoughts?

Edit: I probably shouldn't have put it in this forum, but I've been focused on the router/nic aspect and just found this problem last night since my girlfriend's become addicted to Neverwinter Nights and won't let me work on it

Re: How to repair ipconfig?

I actually had this same problem about a year ago, but I can't remember exactly how I fixed it. It seems like I had to go into device manager and remove my router and nic, then go to ipconfig, then reboot. Can't remember for sure, but it was something along those lines.

Re: How to repair ipconfig?

A system reboot usually corrects the problem if your system is set to obtain IP automatically.

You may also try to right-click on the connection in My Network Places and select "Repair Connection".
