    Im having problems connecting to the net. Ive uninstalled spyware doctor, and its screwed things up. Ive basically lost my internet gateway and cant get it back. I know its working because my other pc is connected and im typing this on it now. Things ive tried:
    creating new connection
    pinging loopback, router and net (net wont work)
    Manually configuring IP address
    I had an APIPA so tried release renew, with no luck. (I know there isnt a problem with DHCP because the other pc is fine)
    reinstalled spyware doc
    rebooted router
    checked all settings in TCP/IP properties against working one

    I can ping the router when its set to a static IP, but i still cant access the router settings thru explorer. It must be something to do with spyware doc as it was fine before that, is there anything else i should be checking? Cheers

    Mick,

    Wired or wireless connection? Does your network device show any problems in device manager, now you have removed the software?

    Its wired mate, no problems in device manager. I can ping the ip address of google aswell, but not the www. So it seems like its screwed the DHCP and DNS settings up somehow, coz the other pc is fine.

    Well, ive done a bit digging round and it seems like alot of people are having similar problems. It appears to be the winsock, so is there any way to repair this?

    Mick,

    If your network card is configured to recieve IP from DHCP, this is functioning - the fact that you can ping Google proves you have connectivity.

    Paste http://216.239.37.99/ in to your web browser - it should bring Google up.

    You might want to try ipconfig/flushdns.

    Si

    The usual way of resetting the TCP/IP stack, including the extra layers in the stack is:
    netsh int ip reset [log_file_name]

    Had you tried this?

    I believe that is the winsock (winsock is in effect a windows implementation of Unix sockets) and also handles LSP problems.

    And it sounded like a LSP problem.

    There is a related command to do a similar rest. Many of the utils available online are mostly just the two netsh reset commands in a script.
