All of the sudden on our Windows 2003 server we can't access NIC settings. When choosing Network Connections/NIC1/Properties we get Unexpected error has occurred. Can't change NIC IP or gateway.

Fix All approach - Have you rebooted the server? – TheCleaner Sep 24 '09 at 16:19
Yes, rebooted twice. Also tried regsvr32 netshell.dll regsvr32 ole32.dll – Biko Sep 24 '09 at 16:29
Is the NIC working with its current config? In other words, is the NIC physically toasted? – Izzy Sep 24 '09 at 17:29

1 Answer 1

Have you tried disabling and re-enabling it, or uninstalling/reinstalling it in Device Manager? (From Device Manager, uninstalled and then re-detect it?)
