Ive had this problem before on my system where I would lose my internet connection, but could correct the issue with a winsock repair, but ive never had an issue like this after a clean reinstallation of windows.

Im running a p4 3.0, asus mainboard w/onboard LAN (3com gigabit LOM) enabled with current 3com drivers and WinXP Pro.

Im behind a netgear router with ygnition broadband service (cable modem)

Ive done everything I can think of to troubleshoot the problem, I wouldent call myself an expert when it comes to computers, but ive built several systems and have managed to handle any hurdle that ive come across and can handle myself around most computer issues very well, but im at my end with this, it has to be simple, but I cant track it down.

I can connect to the internet, allthough at a very slow rate (send/recieve) im not getting any error messages that would normally accompany a poor internet/network connection, I can ping the router and access it so I know its not a poor or malfuncioning ethernet cable, it was working prior to the reinstal and nothing now.

Ygnition is telling me there is a connection on thier end so im looking at a hardware/software problem on my end and since it was working fine just hours before, im thinking its just a setting that im missing somewhere

Any help/advice is greatly appreciated!

I figured it out.

I wanted to rule out a problem with my router, so I accessed the router and reset all the DNS numbers to auto detect and it solved my problem.

Im not sure how/why they were set wrong, but its fixed now.

Thanks for your reply Startechie.
