TCP/IP problem



I'm having a little problem with migrating to a new ISP and I believe TCP is the root of the problem, but don't know how to fix it, so maybe someone out here knows.
My old ISP had me on a static address, and I had the IP written into the TCP/IP properties along with the subnet mask, gateway and DNS servers. My new ISP has me with a dynamic IP so I go into the TCP/IP properties, change it to "obtain IP address automatically" and "obtain DNS server address automatically" log off and on and I'm up and running on my new ISP.
Now comes the problem:
When I reboot, I have no connection. But if I go into TCP/IP properties, change the settings to "use the following IP address" input an IP address, along with the subnet mask and gateway, and also input the DNS servers address, close network and then open again, change it back to
"obtain IP address automatically" and "obtain DNS server address automatically" I'm up and running.
I was thinking that the TCP/IP stack is corrupted, so I could uninstall TCP/IP and reinstall, but the option to uninstall TCP/IP is not available.
Also thought I could delete this connection and make a new one, but again the option to delete this connection is not available.
I am logged in my account with Admin priviledges. I have also tried this in the Admin account with the same results.

Any ideas?
