I cannot connect to my router (WEP key) in normal mode.
I turned off all firewalls, peerblock, spybot etc but it just hangs on connecting.
This is XP SP2 and I am using Wows wireless to manage the setting.
However, using safe mode with networking it immediately connects and internet works.
Any ideas what could be wrong?
Your ipconfig /all results, specifically DNS Server and Lease acquisition - expiration date, show your computer is connected to the internet, the problem may be Winsock corruption.. to repair it Download "XP TCP/IP Repair 2.1" from http://www.xp-smoker.com/freeware.html.
Use the TCP/IP reset button and restart the computer... and next use the Repair Winsock button and restart the computer again.
Stopped working again.
However, nothing seems to be bound to localhost:80.
Email works though.
E-mail through an email client? (Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird?)... the difference between Internet Browsers and Email Clients are the ports they use to connect to the Internet. Have you added an exception for port 80 in the Firewall?
