im using xp, have a netgear wireless router (my pc connects to it physically with a cable)

my computer seemed to randomly stop connecting to the internet and when i clicked the 'repair' button on the connection options i got the message in the subject header

whats strange is that my laptop is connecting to the internet

also, im not sure if this is a related issue i lookd in my device manager and it said that i had no drivers installed for my ethernet controller

is this part of the same problem?

any light that anybody can shed on the problem is much appreciated

many thanks

Yes you need to reinstall the driver

Go into device manager and uninstall the lan card reboot the computer and let windows install the

driver

After reinstalling the driver and if still having the same problem, then you can try this winsockfix click here to fix it.. Good luck..
