I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop in my network. I use a desktop and another notebook in this same network (both used wirelessly) and do not have any problems with those systems. A few months ago this laptop would start losing its connection after being connected for a few hours or days. This happens both when its wired and wireless. Once this happens, I can not re-establish the connection by 'repair'ing the connection or going through ipconfig/release and then renew. The laptop still reports being connected to the router, but I have no actual connection to the internet. In fact, I can do a successful ipconfig/renew, but then I can't ping any websites. The only way to get reconnected after this is a full reboot. Based on another website's suggestion, I tried winsockxpfix, but this did not solve any problems. I also tried to restore my system state to a couple of months earlier and this had no affect. I've also scanned for viruses and adware without success. Please help.

Hi grichman,

Please goto Start --> Run --> type EVENTVWR and press OK --> Now, look under the System log for any errors and/or warnings. If you find any, please post the relevant heading, along with the details inside by double clicking on the error/warning, and then copy/pasting the information from within. You may also want to look for errors that occur around the time of your loss of connectivity, as this may give a greater insight into what's going on.

Dan G,
I was connected and typed my problem on this computer around 8am on 7/1. At 10:23PM I got this warning in my event viewer:

[b]Event Type: Warning
Event Source: W32Time
Event Category: None
Event ID: 36

Time: 10:23:22 PM

Description:
The time service has not been able to synchronize the system time for 49152 seconds because none of the time providers has been able to provide a usable time stamp. The system clock is unsynchronized.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft....link/events.asp.

Then this evening, when I tried to connect to a website, I failed. This Error was generated:

Hope this helps,
Gary
