    I have been connecting to internet thru an non-secured LAN for number of days. Then, I lost connection to LAN. I find the wireless LAN again, got an IP address, but couldn't connect to internet. After trying for a long time, hours, I restored XP Home to previous restore point, and then I got internet again. Any explanations as to what had caused the internet connection problem?
    I use ZA but made no changes to firewall, ipconfig/all during the loss of internet did show LANs DNS and DCHP. Also tried numerous repairs to get a ip address and each time connection to LAN (router, LINKSYS) was good. Puzzled, but still connecting.

    so its all working now

    it could be spyware on the PC
    or the firewall blocking

    if it happens again try this
    ipconfig /all

    TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

    ONE ---------------------------------
    start
    run
    cmd
    ipconfig /all

    rightclick in the box
    select all
    enter
    control key + C key - to copy
    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste

    TWO -----------------------------------------------

    Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:

    IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

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


    NEXT lets see if you can get out onto the internet with both names and IP's - its possible the IP number you get back on the first test is different to the one I post {I'm in UK} so use the number you get instead of mine

    ------------------------------------------------
    try ping the name and then the IP see below

    start
    run
    cmd

    C:\Documents and Settings\wayne>ping {the default gateway ipaddress you got above }


    C:\Documents and Settings\wayne>ping google.com
    C:\Documents and Settings\wayne>ping 64.233.187.99
