I have a windows 98 reforated Gold edition that is on a net work and it will randomly lose internet conncetion. The only way I can regain connection is by restarting the computer. It just stops from between 5 minutes to sometimes 45 minutes you just never know when it is going to end. I do not think this is a malware problem My system is clean. I have AVG antivirus free edition if that matters. Please help thank you.

Hi Mike,

When you lose your Internet connection, can you regain it by doing the following -- goto Start --> Run --> Type winipcfg and click OK --> Click Release; observe that the IP address is set to 0.0.0.0 --> Click Renew. Are you able to now browse the Internet again?

Please also open Event Viewer and look for any errors and/or warnings.

I tried what you said but I still could not browse the internet but the wierd part is I can go onto AOL instant messanger. Also, What did you mean by EventViwer? Lastly, I had an error message thatsaid

Specify new values in IIS Admin tools for script timeout.

This was 2 days ago, before I ran the winipcfg.

Mike,
On your computer, please perform a search for the following file: AUTMGR32.log
Once found (it should be in your Windows folder), please open it with notepad, and then copy/paste the contents from within into your next reply.

Thanks,
Dan.

I searched for it multiple times but I could not find it. I used the built in search and then navigated on my own.

Mike, please download and run WinsockFix. Once run, reboot and test your connection; do you still become disconnected after a certain amount of time?

Please download LSPFix from here. Run the LSPFix.exe that you have just finished downloading, and please 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.
