I am having a number of connection problems. I am having a problem connecting Outlook Express 6 to newsgpoups. I have followed the simple instructions at the wanadoo site but when I try to download a list of newsgroups I get the message 'The TCP/IP connection was unexpectedly terminated by the server'. Using the wanadoo help pages I have checked the advanced settings of the account and all seems fine. I can send and receive emails without any problem.
I am currently connected to the internet via cable using a USB cable, but I used to use the alternative ethernet connection until that stopped working. Also, my dial-up connection no longer works. I get through to the point 'verifying user name and password' and get a message box 'registering your computer ...' (which I didn't use to get) then an error message 'TCP/IP CP reported error 31: device allocated to the system is not functioning'. This used to work.
The only reason I use the dial-up is that I have not been able to use coffea cup FTP to FTP stuff using my cable connection. It just shows the 'connecting...' box without actually connecting. So at the moment I can not FTP using any connection method and if I could sort this alone i would be a great help.
Are these problems linked ?
I have had some major problems with my pc earlier in the year and have had to reload windows twice. These connection problems have existed since the last reload. The computer has otherwise been stable so I dont want to reload again unless I have to. It takes ages to get back to how you want your setup to be.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Rhodes
