Hi, it has been some time since it was neccesary for me to ask you guys for help, but now the time has come again. I had to reset my bios this weekend, because the comp showd all the signes of starting up, but absolutly nothing showed on my monitor. After a reset of the bios, everything works again, accept i haven't got a connection to the internet..

Any idea why?

greets,

stefan.

When you say that you reset the bios, how did you do that?

What is your operating system?

Have a look at Device Manager for your Network Adapter or Modem or Dial up Adapter (depending on how you connect to the net). Look for any yellow exclamation marks or question marks and let us know what you find.

I manually reset my bios, to the letter as the manual of my mobo said.

OS is Windows XP sp2

Network adapters all look fine, nothing unusual.

Couldn't it be anything in the bios, i'd have to change..?

Hi. How does your computer connect to the internet? An USB modem? Perhaps the BIOS reset turned off the USB devices.

Nope, no usb. direct connection with cabel thru router. It can't be the router, can it.. because this computer is connecting to the same router, and everything works fine..

*edit*

Just found out something strange.. I can't connect to the internet with IE or FF, nor can i connect MSN or such..

But i can use a P2P program called soulseek. wich does get a connection..? Maybe this means something to you....?

greets, and thanks,

st.

This sounds like a firewall issue now. Do you have one and are the permissions set to allow these programs?

I fixed it!

Aparantly it had nothing to do with me resetting the bios, or with usb connectors or firewalls.. It seems that our provider has changed somethings, and i had to change the DNS server settings.. They just didn't think it was necesarry to warn us about it.. :s

Oh well, sorted it out now, and i'm back online!! Thank god, terrible to be an internetjunkie and not having acces to it :D

anyway, thanks for trying to help me out!

gr,
