Loose isp on shutdown

  Strawballs 00:26 08 Jun 2004

I am running XP PRO for about 2 days now every time I shut down I loose my B/B connection it says I am behind a firewall the only way I have found is to use system restore bit that is becoming a pain having to do this every time I have to shut down or even restart.

maybe i have not read things correctly but if you have broadband then as soon as your desktop appears when you start up the computer then you are connected.

all you need to do is click on the internet explorer shortcut or the browser you normaly use to access the internet for browsing.

what firewall do you use if any?

I try clicking on the internet icon and all it does is come up with cannot find server and nothing works untill I do a restore. I am with NTL I use AVG and the only firewall that I use is the XP one. I have been using B/B for about 18 months.

if a system restore to an earlier date corrects the problem then my guess is its not the isp at fault here.

Huggyg71 I was thinking along the same lines as you all along I have found the problem now that I have dissabled XP's firewall I can now restart without any problems, but I can't understand why it has only just started doing it now when I have had XP for 6 months and have always had the firewall enabled without prob untill now.
