So recently my Windows Vista will not connect to the Wildblue server. Our PC/internet connection was working just fine before I shut it down for a couple of days. I open up Internet Explorer and it says it cannot open webpage. When I click on a button to try and solve the problem it gives me error 815, which I do believe is Invalid server name. Another error that popped up a couple of times was error 814 wich is the Ethernet connection. I've tried restarting the computer, I've tried unplugging the router box to reset it, and nothing works. I've tried to open up the internet connection in safe mode and it still does not connect. When opening Norton AntiVirus the program says there is no path.

What do I do?

Click on Start then Run or press Window key (next to left Ctrl key) +R and paste the following into the Run box, exactly as shown, including double quotes:

cmd /c "ipconfig /all > postme.txt & ping yahoo.com >> postme.txt & notepad postme.txt & del postme.txt"

and press ENTER.

A file will open in Notepad. Please copy and paste the contents here. Close the Notepad window and the file will be deleted and the Command Prompt window will also close.

If you don't have a Run selection off the Start menu, see here: Enable Run Command on Windows 7 or Vista Start Menu, or just press Windows Key (next to the left Ctrl key) + R.
