I have a Dell Dimension 2400 running Windows XP. Have ZoneAlarm security and have found no viruses or spyware. I connect wired via Broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated controller ethernet card connected directly to a Hughesnet HN 9000 modem. Hughesnet has checked their equipment and the modem connects fine to the satellite. I can also connect 2 other laptops without any problems.
I have booted up in safe mode and can't connect. The device manager shows the Broadcom controller is working properly. I upgraded the Broadcom drive to the latest from their website.
I copied the winsock2 registry and then deleted it. Then tried to reset using cmd> netsh int ip reset but get "initialization function inithelperdll in IP MONTR.DLL failed to start error 10107."
When I run network diagnostics from Internet Explorer, it detect a problem with windsock provider catalog and it tries to reset the catalog to default config. After rebooting, still can't connect to internet.
I can provide ipconfig /all if requested.
At this point I may have tried too many things! Any help would be appreciated.
