Hey, I opened up my computer, plugged in a Hard Drive, checked to see something on it, unplugged it, and plugged the Primary Master back in. I booted up the computer, and everything was working like a charm...

...But I noticed that the internet wasn't working. So I ran downstairs, and checked the laptop (which I'm currently on) and the internet was working fine, so I know that it wasn't a problem with my ISP.

I ran back upstairs, and looked at everything. The computer knows theres an internet connection. It tells me "100 mbsp, connected" and all that. But it doesn't let me online, nor can I see my router settings. Its so weird.

I'm wondering if this is a Hardware issue (I accidently uplugged something thats making it do this) or is there something else to this...

Let me first say, that nothing was changed, edited, or added when I opened up the computer.

Strange your problem hehe. Well try to reinstall your network card drivers. Do you have your network card integrated to the motherboard, or is a PCI card?.

WINSOCK2 FIX
=============
If you can't access the Internet with programs like IE, Outlook Express, or other web browsers, you may have corrupted Winsock entries.

To Remove the existing winsock2 registry entries (regardless of the OS) run:

To add Windows2000 clean entries back in again, run:

To add WindowsXP clean entries back in again, run:
http://www.onecomputerguy.com/reg/xp_winsock.reg

WINDOWSXP with SP2

There is a new command you can run with SP2 which will reset the Winsock2 registry entries back to their default setting:
netsh winsock reset catalog

TCP/IP RESET
=============
If you need to reset the TCP/IP protocol stack with XP you need to run a small script:

netsh int ip reset [ log_file_name ]

the log_file_name needs to be specified.
e.g. - netsh int ip reset ip_reset.txt

Thanks for all your help guys.

Unfortuneatly, my mom just got tired of looking at it, and took it to Best Buy and they're probably just going to format it or just repalce the network card or something.

I seriously wish that I was able to do it with Bob Cerelli's instructions though.

Nevertheless, thanks for both of your guys help. (y)
