I've searched and searched and haven't found a solution that works yet so I figured I'd post.

-As the title suggests, I have limited connectivity when connecting to the internet. This computer recently had a few viruses (5) that have each been removed, however since the removal is when this has started. I have vista.

What I've done so far:
-I've tried each of the generic 'diagnose and repair' options; each with no success.
-I next tried to ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew; however, when renewing the following error appeared:
"An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : Unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has been timed out."
-I next checked to see if I could ping and it was successful.
-I turned off firewall to see if this would have an effect; it did not.
-At this point I reset winsock (netsh winsock reset catalog), IPv4 TCP/IP (netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log), and IPv6 TCP/IP (netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log); did not effect limited connectivity.
-Tried a system restore; no change in limited connectivity.
-Tried setting static ip; no effect.

I'm out of ideas - anyone have any?

Hi Dole787,

Welcome to BC. Appreciated on clear explaination.

First I doubt whether you were able to remove all the virus completely or not. I would advise to post a topic in here

On a second thought did you tried resetting router once, as once I was effected with malware after long research with my other friends in here, this step helped :thumbsup:

LIFE is so simple, if you know the reason of your existence at certain place. Treat every step as first one and trust god, friends, relatives and everyone.


Its a simple magic trick given to me by one friend also and I am at this stage  :love4u:
