please help, winsock problem, internet gone
i thought my winsock registry was corrupted, so i followed this link:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811259

and used the manual repair which started with deleting Winsock and Winsock2 in the registry. I followed all the instructions, but after i reinstalled them, my internet still wouldn't work.

I've tried using netsh winsock reset in cmd. I've tried using netsh int ip reset also. when i do i get..

"Reseting Echo Requet, failed.
Access is denied.

There's no user specified settings to be reset"

however, i'm pretty sure im in as admin as the top says "Administrator: CMD"

i am running vista.

PLEASE help, i feel like i've done everything. Thank you.

Did you read this at the bottom of the article:
Quote:
APPLIES TO
Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition (32-bit x86)
Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition (32-bit x86)
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I don't see Vista in the list.

I don't know if this will recover you at this point, can't hurt to try.

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

For XP, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

For Vista, Start, Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" 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 reset.log

Reboot the machine.

Bob, he applied that manual repair for XP to Vista, and now nothing networking works. I think it's time for a repair installation of Vista.

The "netsh winsock reset" command is the same for Vista as for XP

That one just posted "netsh int ip reset reset.log" is not the same for Vista as for XP.

It should be either "netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log" and "netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log".

Take a look and you can see that the standard response for XP is no longer the same for Vista.

xtxoxpxd,

So back to you.

Now that we got that straightened out, might try the correct TCP/IP reset command for Vista. Hopefully it will be a lot faster than a repair install of Vista.

Also what is the symptom you are having in the first place? Is it that you can't connect to the Internet at all or just can't browse from a web browser?

Can you ping any external sites by IP (e.g. ping 4.2.2.1)
Can you ping any external sites by Name (e.g. ping www.yahoo.com)

when i try to connect, it comes up as "limited or no connectivity". i've tried wireless and LAN.

PING: transmit failed, error code 1231

netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log...
Reseting Echo Request, failed.
Access is denied.

Resting Interface, OK!
A reboot is required to complete this action.

netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log...
Resting Echo Request, failed.
Access is denied.

There's no user specified settings to be reset.


i'm loggied in as admin in CMD

Getting a description of the problem is very helpful. That's why I asked that first place.

So you are not even getting IP address information assigned from the router. Is that correct?

And I'm not sure why the Access Denied error. Is there another account with admin rights you can try this from?
Can you boot to safe mode and try both the reset commands as well as accessing the Internet.

And just to confirm, since you have wireless, have you tested at another location. This is just to rule out whether your router is part of the problem.

i'll try it in safe mode now. i'm 100% sure its not the router since i've been using it for 2 months and only stopped working when i deleted the winsocks. i've also tried other routers around my location, same problems.

i'm not sure if i'm getting IP info or not. how do i check? when i connect, it says "successfully connected to xxx" but the icon says limited connectivity. i'm sending 27 packets and receiving 0. if i go to details, it hads 169.254.136.202 and 255.255.0.0

If you are getting a 169.254.136.202 then you are not getting a valid IP address assigned.

So if it was working, then why did you delete the winsock registry entries in the first place.

ok i did it in safe mode, now both commands return:

There's no user specified settings to be reset.

one of my programs wasn't working and the FAQ brought me to that microsoft site. it clearly wasn't the problem, i realize now, so it was dumb to do that.

That's exactly what I get as well. So at least we are using the correct command and not getting any error messages.

Now what happens if you reboot.
