On what connection. Local Area? Wireless? How do you know it's gone?

Generally if you right click on the connection in question and simply tick tcp/ip in the box there then reboot, it will come back, are you saying it isn't even in that box?

In a command prompt, type netsh winsock reset

If you happen to have done a clean install make sure you install your drivers for your network card

afaik you can't reinstall TCP/IP like you could with 9x.

plenty of winsock repair programs around that will do everthing for you.
tho its wise to uninstall any firewalls and disable any email scanning part of your antivirus.
