Broadband connection stops responding

By bobdolejunkie ·
Ok, for the last couple of days i've had this weird problem: I connect using the windows xp broadband connection to my sbc yahoo, it connects just fine, but then my computer stops recieving bytes after about 204. It won't stop doing this until i delete the connection and use "new connection wizard" to create the exact same connection, once i do that, it will work fine for about a couple restarts. What is causing this??

Maybe try and do a system restore to a time/date before you had the problem first occur and see if it still does this. My first thought would be something in your TCP/IP stack has become corrupted. You could also try to "refresh" your installation by re-installing XP over top of the current installation.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Shawn

When pc stops responding, go to a command prompt and run IPCONFIG /ALL. If IP address does not begin with 192.168., you may not be leasing a DHCP IP address from your modem.

If that is the case, post back and we'll take it from there.

I tried reformating my hard drive and reinstalling windows but it still does the same thing, i actually think that my motherboard is hella buggy because it has a bunch of other problems so i sent it back the other day.
