Can’t connect to the Internet using LAN Cable on Windows XP

Hello there,

I can't seem to connect to the internet using my LAN cable on my Windows XP. I have searched for solutions from other forums and they all say that I should start a service that wasn't running (i.e. DHCP Client). I did that but I got this error:

“System error 1075 has occurred. The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion.”

I read somewhere that NetBT should be cleared but when I did this, nothing happened. I also reinstalled Windows XP but it didn't work. The last thing I did was to try System Restore but that didn't work either. I did all these troubleshooting in Safe Mode.

I have run out of options. I need help. Thank you.

Possible cause for these was Broken Windows Management Instrumentation  (WMI) repository, it is the infrastructure for management data and operations on window-based operating systems.

Please execute the following in windows command line.

>Stop the WMI service:
     net stop winmgmt

>Rebuild the repository. Rename the folder to something else as a backup.
     ren %windir%System32WbemRepository Repository_old

>Start WMI service
     net start winmgmt

>Repair the repository
     windows xp:
     rundll32 wbemupgd, UpgradeRepository

     vista:
     winmgmt /salvagerepository

>Register the new WMI components:

     cd /d %windir%system32wbem

     for %i in (*.dll) do RegSvr32 -s %i

     for %i in (*.exe) do %i /RegServer

>Reboot the computer to take effect of the changes

If the above steps does not work, try the rebuild below:

rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection WBEM 132 %windir%infwbemoc.inf
