I have 2 Pcs at home the main one (mine) connects to NTL broadband via a USB Modem, the other Pc (my sons) used to connect to the net via a x-over cable to the NIC on my Pc (the host). A few months ago the built in NIC connection on my host computer stopped working. I have obtained and installed an internal NIC in my pc as well as tying to use an external USB to Ethernet adaptor. After installing both devices (on separate occasions) the host computer does not connect to the net coming up with the message:- "(my home page) could not be found. Please check the name and try again". Checking network connections (on the USB Modem) says it is connectied. The only way I can reconnect to the net is removing and doing a system restore to before I installed either of the NIC connections. It is as if installing either of the NIC options is stopping my broadband connecting even though evrything says it is working. Any help in resolving this would be much appreciated, thanks in advance RG
Gave it a try this morning, assume I had to type the commands in after :- C:\Documents and settings\(MY NAME)> after each entry Zone alarm asked me if it could connect to the Internet, to which I answered yes then the following message cappeared :-
"Windows IP Configuration An internal error occured: The system cannot find the file specified. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for further help. Additional information: Unable to retrieve DHCP parameters.
Thanks for the help so far,please excuse me for not coming back on this one, but my h/drive appears to be about to fail! Hopefully back working normally next week and would certainly assistance then in rectifying this problem.RG
