Hello folks,
This is my first post on this forum.I'm facing a typical problem for which I need your urgent help.

I have XP(SP3) and Win 7 Ultimate Edition.

On XP..everytime I boot ,I get a Destination Host Unreachable error when I ping my DNS Server IP(172.16.0.1)...and as a result I'm not able to access Internet(Page Cannot be Displayed)...I have a DSL Cable 256kbps Unlimited static IP connection.

When I run WinsockxpFix(as suggested by Google),it does what its programmed to do and then it reboots my machine...

I login into XP and then I reconfigure my LAN Settings(put the IP,Subnet Mask,Gateway,DNS,Alternate DNS values) and then Internet works fine..When I ping the DNS (ping -t 172.16.0.1),I get the usual replies....

However,the moment I restart XP,I get the same Destination Host Unreachable when pinging DNS and I have to repeat the cycle mentioned above to get my Internet connection working...


Here's the results of ipconfig/all:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>ipconfig/all

DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 172.16.0.1
202.54.1.63


Added to this, on Device Manager I find that there are four entries under the Network Adapter Tab and two of them have an Exclamation Mark beside them(my motherboard has two LAN Cards).
When I went to the properties tab it says that the Registry entry for those two particular Ethernet Device may have been corrupted...I tried to uninstall them.But Windows gives a message saying "Failed to uninstall the device.The device may be needed to boot up the computer"..have attached a screenshot.

Is this the reason for the problem stated above??

I'm really getting very frustrated about this as I cant seem to get a solution anywhere.

I really need a working Internet connection on XP as all my major work(photo editing)is done there only (I'm a serious amateur photographer).

Hope I have been able to clearly state my problem.

Please help me out folks.

Thanks in advance

Reboot into safe mode without networking, and remove the device. You can't remove it due it being used.

Okk I'll remove it as soon as I reach home and update...
Do you think it will resolve the 'Destination Host Unreachable' issue??

Amother option if you have not tried it is to go to device manager and do an update driver on each network adapter as well as uninstall and re-install any software associated with the NIC's.

The link says:
Host Unreachable

The datagram was delivered to the network specified in the network ID portion of the IP address but could not be sent to the specific host indicated in the address. Again, this usually implies a routing issue.

My problem is that it gets resolved once I run WinsockxpFix but the moment I restart Xp the problem recurs....!!!:thumbsup:

Hello....update here:

I tried plugging in my LAN Cable to the second LAN Port on my machine...
I tried changing the DNS from 172.16.0.1 to 202.54.1.63..
I tried uninstalling the Ethernet Controllers from Safe Mode /Safe Mode With networking..Not allowing me to uninstall
I ran Advanced System Optimizer for full registry cleaning...

Nothing works...

the problem persists...
Even after running Winsockxpfix and resetting connection,I now seem to get very frequent Request Time Out Errors on XP.

Since the controllers are mounted on the motherboard and since you have not mentioned trying to update the drivers I would suggest you do the following:

1. go to the motherboard manufacturer or computer manufacturers website.
2. download the latest drivers for the chipset and the comtrollers.
3. install for all shown controllers and test.

Also the red X throught the device means it has been disabled. You may need to enable the device before it can be removed. Once you have competyed all the above steps enable the device and try to delete it.
