Classic story, 2 computers- one works on the internet, the other doesn't....

I've tried everything I can think of and everything I've read online but still to no avail... my computer says it's connected w/ excellent strength and is sending packets but not receiving any. I've made sure my settings are on "obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS automatically" and I've tried running Winsockfix; however, when I tried running winsockfix my computer shot back the error "This application has failed to start because MSVBVM60.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." my ip address is stuck on the "default" IP address 169.254.....etc. I have a Sony VAIO VGN-FS810/W and have a netgear router....HELP, PLEEEEASE!

What version of WIndows and what service pack level?

Are you having a problem with ethernet or wireless or both?

I'll assume XP here, you should not use that WINSOCK fix if it's SP2 or SP3.


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.


Then let's see this.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

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

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
