I have had this trouble for a while but I will start a new thread.
My PC can ping itself no problem at all, but when I try to ping the router some packets go through but every now and then it says request timed out. The network signs say it is connected but no lights flash and no data seems to be transmitted.
When pinging this computer at the same time whith anyother on the network (which works fine) the request timed out appears the same time. I used to have to restart the computer to reconnect to the network, this happend once or twice then on the 3-4 restart it would work fine for hours.
I have tried different cables, a different port on the router, default router settings, the routers DHCP and manually giving the computers IP address. The XP firewall I have tried both on and off.
The windows firewall log showed that port 2800 was being used severall times a minute, I checked on the web but all I could find was "acc-raid" but no description as to what it was.
Since I can ping myself ok, would the problem be the router, and if so how come only 1 computeris affected.
Both computers have XP home and SP2.
Any ideas anyone pls? I have ran Ad-aware (I also have sypwareblaster installed) and AVG is running now, though I dont think it wil find anything. I also turned off system restore deleted all cookies and offline content, then restart it.
