Winipcfg and IPconfig give ipaddress, subnet mask and gateway as before, but 1 & 2 Ethernet adapter address and subnet mask is all 0's and gateway is blank

3 Ethernet adapter is back and subnet mask blank gateway.

ping www.yahoo.com
pinging www.yahoo.akadns.net - request timed out.

Looks better than unknown host.

Called ISP to see if they could help since I was almost on line.

They have come up with the following scenarios:

1. Time to Live Setting in my computer may need to be reset (offered no more information as to how to fix this)

2. The router may have blocked the port (I guess that my computer is connected to) because we can't get passed the router

We did a tracert to find it hanging at the router.

Does this help at all?

She said that the modem isn't supposed to be listed; only the ethernet card.

I'm so confused :tazz:

How was that beer?

:)

Goes down pretty good after a long day.

Internet Explorer 4.x and later versions modify how DNS host entries are cached by decreasing the default time-out value to 30 minutes.


do you think you can do this ? but remember my rule 2

1. Start Registry Editor.
2. Locate and click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
3. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry values:
Value Name: DnsCacheTimeout
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Radix: Decimal
Value: (time in seconds)

Value Name: ServerInfoTimeOut
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Radix: Decimal
Value: (time in seconds)
4. Quit Registry Editor.
