I haven't done anything new or out of the ordinary. The only thing I can think of is that I had to reset my router and set up my network from scratch. After that, my connection hasn't been the same. I've called DLink about my problem, but the best answer they could give me is plugging into another port on my router.
I don't believe my router is the issue. When I run Network Diagnostics on internet explorer I get an error on my WinSock Status. It says error attempting to validate the Winsock Base Providers: 2. At first I thought the winsock was the problem and I've opened up the command prompt and have reset it as well as downloaded Winsock XP Fix. I also receive an error on my HTTP, HTTPS, FTP connectivity.
I've been trying to research my problem for the past week. So I've taken some steps already to try and resolve my problem.
I've ran Network Diagnostics in Help and Support and the following has failed on my Network Adapters:
Default Gateway (same subnet)
I've tried to repair my connections but it always gets stuck on renewing my IP Address. It seems I never can do it. I've checked my connections and everything seems to be running fine. It says I am connected to the internet yet, I can't access a website.
My connections are set to obtain IP address auto and the same goes for the DNS server.
I've flushed and registered my DNS.
I've also downloaded and ran ad-aware and spybot and super anti spy ware. All three picked up on different things,and I have taken the steps to rid them from my computer already.
If it's not an attack then why would my computer act differently when it was running just fine?
