I just installed microsofts new service pack 2 and now i have a new icon in the task bar with a explination mark in it ( looks like a network icon ).

It says "Limited or no connectivity" .

I have no idea what this is but it opens a menu which the option to repair but when i tryed fixing it says "Repair local area connection... " then eventually it says
Windows could not repair the problem because the following action could not be completed:

Renewing your ip address
Anyone what this is or how i fix it?

My broadband seems to work fine.. i have no problems surfing but obviously something is wrong.
