Internet access not possible thru access point....

  toni b 03:04 16 Nov 2003

I am using a wireless internet access point my internet access has stopped for what reason I dont know,I have tried accessing router directly via cable but no different, I have tried the following ,repairing internet connection-error message "repair failed unable to renew ip address,arp flushing failed.I have tried uninstalling wireless network card and reinstalling nothing ,I have tried restore points not successful ,I have tried restoring from a back up made through the back up utility in win xp pro no joy. I have tried command prompt ipconfig/release,ipconfig/renew - i get error message "An error occured while renewing interface wireless network connection :an operation was attempted on something that is not in socket"
I have nothing showing errors in computer management except usb2 controller which I have disabled ,I have disabled Norton antivirus.I looked at services to see if anything might not be running and started most of the services to see if it made a difference, it did not.I have a wireless connection which is sending signals to acess point but it is recieving nothing(same as if connected by cable) any suggestions will be appreciated .I have tried all that I know which is not a lot so that is why I am posting for help.
Regards Toni

must admit,i know nothing about wireless networks but here is a very basic generic walkthrough click here

may help a bit untill sombody more knowledgeable can lend a hand.

ps re/ windows services,set all below to automatic:

wireless zero config

DCHP client

DNS client


network connections

network DDE DSDM

network location awareness

restart windows after changing the way a service starts to take effect.
