Over a week ago, I started getting the message "the connection was reset" when I open up FF and the equivalent message in IE8. I have had my friend, who is going to school for computer repair look at the computer, and he could not figure out what was wrong. I have talked to a professional who suggested that it sounded like a problem with my wireless card, suggested trying a wired connection, but still no luck. here is what I have done

-tried a wired ethernet connection
-setting up a static route
-netsh winsock reset
-netsh int ip reset
-winsockipfix utility
-disabling both windows and trend micro firewalls, livescan, keystroke encription
-connecting to someone else's wireless
-connecting a different laptop to my wireless (worked)
-ipconfig release and renew
-deleting network settings from the laptop and reconfiguring them
-windows diagnostic
-system reset to two weeks prior to when I started having the problem

None of this worked, except trying to get a different laptop to connect, which proved it is not my router that is the problem.

I just went into Msinfo32, components, network, protocol and found that i am missing six settings that Microsoft support site says I should have, they are:

MSAFD NetBIOS [\Device\NetBT_Tcpip...
MSAFD NetBIOS [\Device\NetBT_Tcpip...
MSAFD NetBIOS [\Device\NetBT_Tcpip...
MSAFD NetBIOS [\Device\NetBT_Tcpip...
MSAFD NetBIOS [\Device\NetBT_Tcpip...
MSAFD NetBIOS [\Device\NetBT_Tcpip...

The fix that it tells me to do is the windows diagnostic, and netsh winsock reset, which, I've already done to no avail.
