Here's my setup:
Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop running off power adapter
20gb Hard Drive 14gb free
Hardwired to Actiontec Modem Router on Verizon FIOS
Network Adapter: Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller
When I start the computer, the computer icon blinks: A network cable is unplugged
If I run the Broadcom Advanced Control Suite/Diagnostics Test that usually results in it being able to connect.
I also sometimes - but not always - get Generic Host Process for Win32 Services error when I boot up: Generic Host Process for Win32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close.
Under details for this error I see this:
szAppName: svchost.exe szAppVer: 5.1.2600.2180 szModName: ntdll.dll
zsModVer: 5.1.2600.3520 offset: 00018af2
The cables, modem, connection are all good and work with other computers fine. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the Network Adapter driver. The computer is clean of any viruses and spyware as far as I know. I do have Avira Anti-virus and Windows Firewall.
In searching on this error, I've come across alot of people with a similar issue, but no real solutions.
Thanks for any help on this.
