My wireless network which has on it a laptop and a desktop has just packed in.

I'm using windows XP
netgear FM114P prosafe wireless router


Both computers recognize the connection it says the strengh is excellent however it shows no internet pages and it won't load MSN.
I've disabled firewalls but this does not appear to help.

I can repair the connection on the laptop using the repair control that appears when you click on the network connection but still nothing.
On the desktop I cannot repair it, it says there is a problem with the ARP cache, but even when i clear this manually using the command prompt nothing will load.

Can anyone help me?
Do you think I have a faulty router or is this a software problem

I would be really grateful.

Run ipconfig /all (use a DOS window)

Check that Node Type is "Hybrid"

If not, edit registry Dhcpnodetype to 8 (search here for how to)

And maybe reset your Winsock values to original using WinsockXPfix.exe (can get corrupted by spyware)

start/run regedit

backup your registry:

then find the following key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\NBT\Parameters

Change the value data to 8 and MAKE SURE HEXADECIAML IS SELECTED FOR BASE!!!!

reboot and see if problem persists...

if it does do the following:

downlaod the following utility
winsockXPfix

run it and reboot!!!

I'm not sure how to back up the registry, the windows help thing says use a programme like Backup, I can't find anything like this. Also I can't find the folder NBT

Can you offer any advice.

when you open regedit....click file/export.. select a file name and location. MAKE SURE ALL IS SELECTED FOR EXPORT RANGE!!!

sorry..didn't see you had XP (well that's what i get for playin' on the internet at 2:30am..lol)

the key YOU are looking for is:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\NetBT\Parameters

let me know how you make out.

once you run winsockXPfix.exe....you need to power off the router for 30 seconds, power the router back up and reboot both machines
