Screwed up my Dial-Up adapter

By chan1637 ·
I recently bought a Ethernet PC card so that i could network my laptop and Desktop together.However, when i installed it, i accidently removed my dial-up adapter.So after physically installing the network card,i reinstalled the adapter using the Win98 CD.However, although i could still dial up to my internet service provider,now i cannot access any websites or use other Internet programs such as MIRC or a mud client.
Also, i still can't get my Network set up properly.
Anyway, what i read during the error messages is that some socket couldn't be created.
After some emails with the respective vendors and service providers, i tried some methids, including removing the network card and adapters to see if there were any conflicts, reinstalling windows 98, and re-installing dial up network and the respective adapters including the tcp/ip bindings.

It is refering to the Winsock-socket function to create a socket that is bound to a specific service provider.Reload the browser software.

Have tried reinstalling Internet explorer also already, sorry if i did not add this before...
But still this problem occurs.
Unless you mean for me to uninstall, then i'll try that too

Frankly, right now I suspect it is no longer just a winsock problem,i replaced all my winsock files with the originals and it still did not help......

Dude, pull the network adaptor, this card is using identical hardware resources as the modem, re-install it with the modem if possible. Then you may need to log onto this website...for virtual machine and internet security updates:

http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/updates

Your network, hmmmmmm, dunno....gotta let windows/motherboard assign the resources, if this aint possible, try a differint NIC,?

windos ought to find the card and be able to assign resources appropriately, perhaps doing the windows update thing might help here as well.

also, microsft provides many many articles when it comes to setting up personal networks, try this site:

also, read up on security at:

www.grc.com

Best of luck...

Firstly, i don't really understand you, so let me go through this slowly.....
First, you want me to pull the network adapter.As in physically remove or just the drivers, because i've done both....
still no go...

Boot the computer into safemode and delete all references that is duplicated in the list,best yet delete all,then reinstall the nic card,this will hopefull clean out the registry entries also,which pay be causing a reduntant file that is corrupt to be accessed.
