I have a problem with my network, I have a dsl504 router that used to work perfectly. It just stopped working about a month ago and I've been trying to sort it out ever since.
I've changed the cable, tried 2 other network cards, done the winsockfix thing, tried the ipconfig thing. I've read through lots of forums to try to resolve this problem and just keep hitting a brick wall. So I'm now trying this.
My system is xp pro sp2, I'm using a realtek family ethernet card, with the dsl504 wired router. When trying to repair all i get is the message alot of other people get saying low or no connectivity.
I have tried to chage the ip address manually and get a message saying there's a conflict, which I'm assuming is the speedtouch modem I'm having to use instead of the router.
I have tried all I know and I am now assuming that the router is damaged even though everything seems ok there. The status light flashes constantly but I believe thats supposed to happen.
Is there anything else I can try or any way of knowing that it's the router that's broke and not the computer connections??
Thanks for any help.
