How can I trash TCP/IP settings?

Sorry, haven't had a Mac in a while, not very fresh on how to do things like this.

My problem is as follows:

Usually when I turn on my computer while connected to my hub (connected to a DSL modem) it automatically gets the IP from the server and connects me from the internet. Now when I do it I get an IP starting with 169 which indicates that I'm not connected.

The tech-support woman from the DSL company told me that I needed to trash my TCP/IP settings.

How can I do this and why is this happening?
(change since yesterday when it worked--I got an airport card).

Go to System Folder -> Preferences and delete the TCP/IP preferences.
That should work...
