I have an issue with a home PC in that when connection in either wireless or ethernet connection to boradband it cust out after about 12mb (I think its 12mb as when you look at info for connection its circa 12,000 when it stops). If i run in safe mode with networking on its fine. I have tried running malware and it says everything is ok. Any thoughts?
Network card is 4-5 years old but why would it be the issue if it works fine in safe mode with networking on but in normal mode for either wirless or ethernet it stops at around 12,000 download if you watch the connection.
Tried without firewall and no change.
I can view the web page because it is able to display initialy before stopping.
You can also follow this up with a good spyware/malware/antivirus sweep on your computer.
Try downloading the latest drivers for your network card,
If you still cannot connect boot in safe mode and remove the network card drivers.
**Make sure you have a copy of your drivers on a thumdrive/cd/saved to your computer....**
Now reinstall the cards drivers (if its not integrated into the motherboard then physically pull it out and put it back in using all proper safety precautions)
Bring up the command prompt, ping 127.0.0.0 what happens?
BRB if i find more...
Ok If the above fail lets go a diff route.
Start > Run > MSconfig
Goto the Startup Tab and start unchecking stuff. Almost nothing in this tab is needed to start basic windows.
Try that, reboot and try the internet. The big difference between Normal and Safe is these extra things in startup tab
I used to msconfig to remove all start-up apps and then add one by one and it turns out that the Dell network Assistant app is the culprit. Not sure what it was doing but its the only thing I ended up removing and everything is working well.
So thanks for the help and I trust the mirror didn't tell any lies
