    Hi everbody, yesterday i was playing an online game and suddenly i lost connection! I went to the modem and reset it, it is still the same i still cannot connect.

    I tried Repairing and it was stuck on Renwing IP address and after the repairing it says " Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address." I've done the ipconfig/release and ipconfig/renew, after 2 minutes the message says: "An error occured while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection 2 : unable to contact your DCHP server. Request has timed out."

    Im using a Wireless Connection, netgear usb 2.0 adapter wireless G, Windows XP Service Pack 3. Modem: Speed Stream 3652.

    Can anyone pls tell me how to fix this problem?

    Reply As Soon As Possible..

    THX.:confused:

    When you look at the modem, does it have a steady connect (data) light?



    First off, let's try the easy fix.

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2/SP3.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

    Note: Type only the text in bold for the following commands.

    Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reboot the machine.



    If that doesn't do it, try a wired connection to the computer and see if that works.

    Have you Tried unplugging your Wireless from the Computer? I have a USB wireless adapter and sometimes that is all it needs. If that doesnt work, Restart the Computer.

    You forgot part of the command, go back and read it again.


    netsh int ip reset reset.log
