Hi All

I lost my internet connection through my ISP (Virgin Media) last week and now it is restored I can can access the internet through my wireless laptop but not the hardwired PC, which goes through a Linksys router.

I have tried the following.

Reinstalled Firefox.
Connecting straight from Cable modem to PC


I can download other stuff ok it's just the internet that is the problem.

I have also pinged 127.0.0.1 which is ok.

I did do a bit of spring cleaning whilst the connection was down, ie removing a few progams I no longer use so this could be connected. :)


Does anyone have a suggested route to take to get me up and running?

I'm running Windows 2K Prof.

Cheers and thanks in advance.

Hey Dale,

On your desktop, can you please do the following (you will need a USB chip or some other form of removable media in order to transfer the text file to your laptop, to post):
  • Press Start
  • Select Run
  • Type cmd and press OK
  • In the new command prompt window, please type the following commands (*Note: each ping will take about 20 seconds to complete; wait for the command prompt to return before you type the next one. Also, the single '>' and double '>>' are intentional; please type the commands exactly as they appear):
    • ipconfig /all > C:\results.txt
    • ping localhost >> C:\results.txt
    • ping google.com >> C:\results.txt
    • ping 209.85.171.100 >> C:\results.txt
  • Once the above commands have completed, navigate to your C: drive and open the text file results.txt -- please copy/paste the contents of this file into your next response.
Please also try restarting your computer in Safe Mode with Networking and see if you can get an Internet connection; can you?

Thanks,
- Dan

Hi Dan

Thanks for that.

My ISP have now decided that there could be a problem at my end of the line. Whatever their findings I still have the feeling that they will only be able to restore the intenet connection to my wireless laptop as I have had an intermitent connection on this over the past couple of weeks as opposed to my PC which has lost the internet totally.

I will let them have a poke around (within the next 24hrs.) and get back to you with their findings and will include the .txt files if there is still an issue.

Cheers

Ok, the engineer has been and gone.

The laptop seems to be back working ok again now and he seemed happy with the modem and connections. He said there was a bit of an issue with the upstream and downstream power levels of the modem which he has ajusted.

So as requested here are the results from the text file.

Hope this help, and thanks.

Dale

That reply above would appear to be be. Must be an old login that was stored somewhere and can be deleted. :)

Hey Dale,

It looks like your desktop is receiving a good Internet connection, for the most part. For this reason, I'm inclined to agree that your little 'spring cleaning' session may be connected to your loss of Internet connectivity :) Did you try restarting your computer in Safe mode with Networking (as listed in my first post) and seeing if you could connect to the Internet?

Can you please try to remember what programs you uninstalled as this may help determine what broke your Internet. I'd be mainly interested in security software (firewall, anti-virus?), but anything and everything could be useful.

Please download and run Winsock Fix. Before you choose the Fix option, please backup your registry (you can do this from within the program). Once you have backed up your registry, choose the Fix option and then restart your computer; try to connect to the Internet -- can you?

Please download LSPFix from here. Run the LSPFix.exe that you have just finished downloading, and list all of the protocols that are in the 'Keep' and 'Remove' list; if there are protocols in the 'Remove' list, then please don't click 'Finish>>'. Simply close the program by pressing ALT+F4 or the Close [x] button.

Thanks,
- Dan

Hi Dan

I booted up the computer in Safe Mode With Networking and managed to connect to the internet through IE.

I ran Winsock Fix rebooted but no luck, I then ran LSPFix and there was nothing in the remove list. Did you want the items in the 'KEEP' list.


Thanks

Did you want the items in the 'KEEP' list.

Sure, it won't hurt to have that info.

Please download HijackThis and install it -- restart your computer. Once the computer starts up, can you please launch HijackThis and then select the option Open the Misc Tools section -- select Generate StartupList log. Save the startup list in a safe location. Now select the option Open Uninstall Manager and then click Save list -- save it to a safe location. Please post the contents of the startup list and the uninstall list in your next response.

Also, let's see if a Clean Boot will let you connect.
  • Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK
  • In the new window, select the General tab and then select Selective Startup
  • Click to clear the Process SYSTEM.INI File check box.
  • Click to clear the Process WIN.INI File check box.
  • Click to clear the Load Startup Items check box. Verify that Load System Services and Use Original BOOT.INI are checked.
  • Click the Services tab.
  • Click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box.
  • Click Disable All, and then click OK.
  • When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.
When the computer reboots, are you able to connect to the Internet?
*Note: To return Windows to a normal startup mode, please do the following:
  • Select Start, and then click Run.
  • Type msconfig, and then click OK.
  • Click the General tab, click Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services, and then click OK. When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.

Hi Dan

These were the files in the 'Keep' list

mr20.dll
winrnr.dll
nwprovau.dll
msafd.dll
rsvpsp.dll

Ok, all done as requested. PC boots up a lot faster in the custom mode. Not suprising when I see the amount of junk running in the background. :) IE and Firefox work fine under this setting. :)

Looks like the system needs a good clear out. I only use about 5% of what's installed on there.

Here are the log's you asked for. You are doing great, keep up the good work. Dale

Hey Dale,

The most likely culprit here is Norton Internet Security.

Please do the following:
  • Click Start, select Run, type control.exe and press OK
  • This should open Control Panel -- select Add or remove programs.
  • In the new window, locate Norton Internet Security and select Uninstall.
  • Restart your computer.
  • Upon reboot, please download and run the Norton Removal Tool -- once it is finished, restart your computer.
Once you've done that, try returning your computer to a Normal Startup mode and seeing if you can connect to the Internet; can you? There are a few other potentially problematic applications, but I feel that Norton may be the biggie here.

Thanks,
- Dan

Hi Dan

Problem solved it would appear. Now have access through Firefox in 'Normal' start up mode. :)

With Norton now removed (I only used the firewall) do I need some added firewall protection on top up what is built into my Linksys router?


Thanks for all your patience and help.

Glad to hear things appear to be working, Dale :) Yes, it would be a good idea to install a new firewall.

Here are two good threads in regards to what sort of protection your computer needs to stay clean: Preventing Malware and Safe Computing and for a full list of recommended security applications, Free Antivirus and Antispyware Software.

Following the advice outlined in those threads should keep your computer safe from the majority of threats.

Thanks for taking the time to post how your issue(s) were resolved; feedback is always appreciated.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to post.
