for the past 24 hours my PC hasnt been connecting to the internet, but is apparently showing` connection to the wireless network.

the laptop im using now connects to the internet, so its a prob with the computer itself.

I ran a spyware check with microsoft antispyware, nothing fixed. I am running a McAfee Enterprise virus scan now.

I tried right clicking the sys tray icon for the wireless connection thingy, and choosing repair, but it gets as far as ''clearing DNS cache'' but fails to.

Can I do that manually? Help

Yes, this is a tech forum. However, we all have lives other than waiting expectantly here for a query to come in. :smile:

How about some information? Version/patch level of Windows in use. Make/model of the router you use.

Open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

If you run XP-SP2, here are a couple of fixes you can try.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset [log_file_name]

Note: the log_file_name needs to be specified, e.g. netsh int ip reset reset.log



Finally, pick the proper repair module from this list, XP or any other version of Windows and try that.

Automated WINSOCK Fix for XP

Automated WINSOCK Fix all Windows Versions



You should reboot after applying a fix to see if it's actually had an effect.
