Just back from my hols to find i cant connect to the internet. Running on xp with service pack3 & a Dlink link dsl router. ISP is Tiscali.
Was working fine when i went away & nothing new added since. Am able to access hyperlobby & steam for online gaming but will not connect to tiscali - get a 638 or 797 error . Xbox live starts up no prob.
Have tried switching off router but no joy. Any suggestions apprectiated.Cheers.
Just a theory, As TalkTalk bought Tiscali a while back I think they are trying to get rid of the Brand Name and get Customers to move over to TalkTalk. Nothing Wrong with TalkTalk I have been with them about two years and saved me loads of £££££ but thats the way things go
Seems like i had some old dial up connections that were causing some kind of conflict. Deleted them from 'internet connections' & a new internet gateway appeared (had the dlink router running at the time). Fired up straight away. Lovely.
Maybe should have done that when i moved from dial up to broadband but am a bit of a computer clutz.
Thanks guys for your ideas. Love this site.
