hi!

okay my problem is that i have internet for lon periods of time, and randomly it stops working.

windows xp pro.

I have cable modem (comcastic), and a D-Link DI-514 connecting me to my computer through netgearbridge ( i think thats what its called, it gives me my internet through the electrical outlets from the modem) my dads computer, which is where all the internet is coming from doesn't lose internet when i do.

i rebooted modems, ect ect. and on my computer it says that limited or no connectivity, sometimes i get a message that my modem didn't assign an ip adress. last time i was trying to fix it i tried to set up a static ip adress because i didn't know what else to do! but for whatever reason after playing around withit an hour i got internet. but i don't want to play around i want to know how to fix it once and for all! and no i didnt end up setting up static ip.

this time i lost my internet i was on my computer and lost power thanks to the storm, and it restarted right away, but without internet, if that is any help. that was last thursday i believe snce then i didn't have anything!!!



i was also curious when i open up local area connection status, it has the picture of 2 comupters recieving and sending. on my computer the recieved one has a little lock, does it mean anything?

also could it be my dads norton antivirus blocking anything to my computer?

extra details,
intel[r] pro/100 vm network connection

this connection uses following items
client for microsoft networks
file and printer sharing for microsoft networks
Qos packet scheduler
internet protocol [tcp/ip]

enabled IEEE 802 1x autho
smart card or other certificate


i hope thats enough!

thank YOU, for any help!!!

Im not sure exactly what your problem is but there are a few things that you can do to try and fix this problem

Sometimes after repeated use a device driver will lose its functionality.

Try going into control panel>system>hardware then click device manager. Then find your network card the list and right click and uninstall it. Then restart your system. On reboot the card should re-install it self. (it may take a minute or two) This will refresh you driver, IP addresses etc. If the card does not install itself you may have to go to your manufacturers website and download a new driver (ironic I know since we are trying to fix your internet but it should re-install fine.)
This may fix your problem.

This problem happened to me when I installed BitDefender Internet Security and Zonealarm Internet security, even when I turned one off it kept on running and timing out my connection.
Try running command prompt and typing in "ipconfig /flushdns" (without the quotes).
My best guess is that its Norton Internet Security, it blocked my connection a couple of times so I reconfigured it and it worked fine.
Can you see me now?

I suspect there may be problems with the electrical wire network - but I don't know much about that. Maybe try the website of the manufacturer of the electrical wire network?
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Most Internet connectivity problems arise out of corrupt Winsock settings due to the installation of a networking software or Malware infestation.

If your using Windows XP SP2, log on as an administrator.
Go to Start > Run and type: cmd
Press OK or Hit ENTER.
A dos Window will appear. Type or copy/paste the following: netsh winsock reset
Hit ENTER.
When the program is finished, you will receive the message: "Successfully reset the Winsock Catalog. You must restart the machine in order to complete the reset."
Close the command box and reboot your computer.

What I would do is temporarily uninstall Norton Internet Security using the Symantec removal tool (don't do this if you don't have the serial numbers for internet security or if you don't have the cds)
You can get the tool from here http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...005033108162039
