I already posted this in the networking forum, but I guess very few people monitor that forum and this may be a XP problem as well, so I am reposting this here and will delete the other one.
Hmm this seems to be a strange problem.
I left for vacation last week, did not touch my laptop, came back and now it will not connect.. it seems.
I originally was unable to obtain DHCP automatically, was getting limited or no connectivity. So I was confused, I ran xpwinsock fix and no go. So I changed to a static address, and was able to fully connect. Well, thats what it says. I open internet explorer or firefox, they are slow to open, and they do not show pages, just, canot find server messages.
So I began to think, maybe we have a problem with COMODO or NetPeeker. So I disabled both, still nothing. Ran LSPfix to locate problems, everything seemed fine, ran malware bytes, spybot, and nod32, all clean.
We did no changes to our network here, and I made no changes to my laptop.
On my last day before my vacation I was getting hit HARD with SYN flood attacks, thousands of attempts. Thankfully NetPeeker does a pretty good job at blocking these. So it may be possible that a problem could have occured there.
I have tried everything I can think of, any other suggestions???
