Connecting to Site

  oldfastbowler 11:45 02 Dec 2005

When I try to access the internet via my LAN broadband connection I get a message in the bottom left hand corner saying 'Connecting to site' and of course no connection is made. I can receive and send e-mails with no problem so I know the connection via my ADSL router is OK. I have two other computers connected to the same router and both access the internet correctly.

When I run Network Diagnostics I get two 'failed' messages. Network Adapters' and 'IP Address' which appear to indicate that the 'Marvell Yukon Ethernet Controller' and the 'Microsoft TV/Video Connection' have the same IP Address

I have tried to change the ethernet controller IP Address but without success.

Does anyone have a solution. The computer is a MESH and unfortunately their customer support service is a waste of time and money

I've no idea if it will work for you, but there was a rather similar problem discussed at, click here. The suggested solution, which I think worked, was to reset winsock and TCP/IP stack with a script downloaded from click here

Thanks Gongoozler the winsockfix programme fixed my problem. There still appears to be a clash of
IP Addresses but this is not now affecting the performance of my computer.

Thanks for taking the time to post the fix.
