Hey everyone,
I'm currently running XP Pro SP2, and recently, I have undergone a problem with my network. I called my ISP about a different computer on the same network that seemed to not get a connection to the internet. However, after the ISP reset the IP, my computer shortly started to seize to see a connection to the internet.

I am running the network with a WPN311 RangeMax PCI Adapter. I have tried manually setting the options, as well as having auto set the connections, however it is still not allowing me to access the internet. The network is connected, not at full strength, but nonetheless connected. At some points, I can get a connection for about 5 minutes. then it would seem to stop, and then I would just have to seem to try and wati to see if it would come back.

Pinging the connection showed 4/4 on everything. I have also tried reinstalling the network driver.

if anyone has any other assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Robert

Try rebooting your network in this order if your ISP didn't instruct you on this yet.. Turn off the modem, the router, and your computer.. Turn on the modem and wait for the online light to light. Then turn on your router and finally your computer.

Sneaky,
Thanks for the quick response! At first, this method was very successful, but about 20 minutes after my connection was thrust into offline mode yet again. I was recieving very few packets, and sending very many, if that has anything to do with anything.

Are you connecting more than one computer at the same time? Have you tried Resetting the router back to defaults? Does the computer work ok using a wired connection.
