I am not computer savvy so any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am using Windows XP home edition, and connect to the internet using a cable modem/router.
A couple of days ago my computer developed a problem were it doesn’t connect to the internet. Every time I try to connect I get the message “Internet Explorer cant display the webpage” When this first happened I ran self-diagnostics and got the message that the IP address was not recognized. When I viewed my IP address it was blank. I typed in the IP address as I remembered it but was still unable to access the internet.
From reading other questions on this site I tried the following to resolve the issue:
1. Checking to see if the ssl/tsl was enabled. It was
2. Resetting the IP address The first couple of times I tried this the message “operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation”
3. Resetting winsock
4. System restore to previous dates. The message “unable to restore to previous date as nothing has changed.”
5. Checking the hard drive for errors. No errors were detected
The Local Area Connection icon says that my computer is connected and under activity it indicates bytes being sent but zero being received.
I tried pinging the IP address with the result; 4 sent, received 0, lost 4.
I checked all wire/cable connections and they appear fine.
My land-lord uses the same modem/router and currently has no problem accessing the internet so I don’t believe that the problem is with the it.
