Having a repeated problem. 1) Often find I can't access a website unless I reboot. 2) Once I've connected, after anything from 5 - 30 mins, I am unable to access a different page on whatever website I'm on and also can't access any other website until I reboot again. Actions I've taken include: replace modem cable, try different modem, full restore, resetting TCP/IP, using different browser. Actions my ISP (Tiscali)have taken are to repeatedly get me to do a "trace route" test and "ping" test. Grateful for any ideas.
Thanks guys. I had a funny feeling it was probably down to the ISP as this problem started after I'd started a new contract using their LLU at my local exchange.One of their "helpers" even asked me to change my password as if that would be a resolution! Blast! Mooly, what do you mean by "from an elevated command prompt"? I am running XP. Cheers
An elevated command prompt is one with administrator rights. The above may well work without. I think in XP it will be start, run, then type cmd and press enter. To run as admin you will have to right click cmd and select that option.
