when ping tests fail (both by URL and IP), and there's no firewall on the machine, short of a system restore what can be done?? back in the day of windows 9x, a simple reinstall of dialup networking would usually take care of that... can dialup networking be uninstalled/reinstalled in XP? the only step i know of is netsh... i've been told by that what's usually needed in such circumstances is a reinstall of the 'communications suite'... anyone know how to do that?

Click Start , then Run, type in cmd , click Open, then type the following:

netsh int ip reset c:\tcplog.txt

Push Enter. Reboot your machine and try again. If you really wanna do a thorough job of it, delete your dial up connection before the reboot then recreate it after the reboot.

If the above fails this is worth a go.

1. Start > run > regedit
2. Backup registry
3. Delete keys

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2

reboot

4. Open network connections
5. Go into properties of connectoid
6. Select the networking tab
7. Click install > select protocol > add > have disk > browse to nettcpip.inf location (above) > OK
8. Tcp/ip should now be 1st protocol in the list > highlight and click OK

reboot
