    Winsock Failure. :mad:

    I have ran across this error twice. And it seems to be a bugger. It will disconnect your computer from the Internet by stopping or blocking the DHCP client or causing a failure in the Windows socket function.

    Here is a simple and Low Tech resolution: System Restore.(y)

    When I 1st ran across this problem it took me the better half of a day to fix it. :confused:
    The 2nd time it took me less than 10 minutes. :rolleyes:

    Restoring your system to an earlier date seems to repair the dis function of the Winsock which will automatically start your DHCP client which allows you to connect to the Internet.

    I will say both times I ran across this issue were on Windows Vista. I have not seen this issue on Windows XP or Windows 7.

    I hope this post helps anyone that has this issue.
    Please note that you should create a system restore point at least once a month, start with the 1st time you turn it on.
