    Have you just tried doing a "system restore" to fix anything? You won't lose anything >> start: run msconfig > Launch System Restore and choose a date when the problem did not exist.

    Else, what are your advanced TCP/IP settings? Normally you do not want to enable NetBios over TCP/IP -- and you might want to experiment with disabling it atleast for the repair operation.

    If you used System Restore to return to a date clearly prior to the onset of the problem with no joy -- start looking at hardware as a cause or something external to Windows such as a router.

    I downloaded a program called "winsockxpfix" and when I applied it and restarted, my net worked. But when I restart the PC again, it goes back to the problem. I have to apply that software every time and restart the PC to use the net. If it was a hardware problem, how would this software fix the problem, temporarily though.

    Please help
