2 months ago the commodo firewall messed up my connection, I unistalled it and when i tried going back online I could only do it with my modem directly connected to my computer

every time i hook up my router it drops the connection after a few minutes

anyone know what the problem is?

What model router is it? have you tried resetting the modem and the router?


Edit: turn off the computer, router and unplug the modem and leave it off for 2 min. Plug the modem back in and let it initialize then turn on the router, then turn on the computer. Go into IPconfig in the command window and type ipconfig /release. When it resets type ipconfig /renew


Edit : 2 if that doesn't work try this

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

1) Connect the laptop/Computer cable to the router, then do this:
2) Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.
3) "Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults":(type) netsh winsock reset catalog
4) "Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults": (type) netsh int ip reset reset.log

5) Reboot the machine.

If i do that and it doesnt work, will it mess with my connection with just the modem plugged in at all?

I'm curious as to how Comodo Firewall "messed up" your connection/router.

Did you use the XP Network Wizard when setting up your connection...and (using the router) did you elect "residential gateway" as your primar means of connection to the Internet?
