'limited or no connectivitity' and crap cleaner

  mco 08:11 12 Sep 05

Got this message on one of the pc's - the others on the home network still work fine so I know it's not the modem or external connection; it's just that particular pc. The only thing I did differently was run crap cleaner. Surely there's no way that could have deleted something important I need could it? When I try to 'repair connection' it says it can't renew IP address.

Can you remove the connection, reboot the pc, and then tell it to search for any wireless connections in range?

That may find it.

I don't think that CrapCleaner is to blame - I use it at times and it has not interfered with the wireless connectivity.

its' broadband through a cable (the others are wireless; this one's the mainstation)

Strange then that you get the "limited or no connectivity" problem then.

Anyway, try to remove it and reboot the router as well.

Are you using AOL broadband on the affected pc?.

...with homenetwork router (with wireless card in it for rest of network, which is fine) Are you saying that message doesn't come up unless you're on wireless?

I'm not saying that you only get the message on wireless; only that it is more frequent. Maybe a posting in the netwrok forum, with a link to this thread, will get some more results.

could you try a new patch cable from the router to your main pc, as this is the only one wired and the only one with a problem, it seems the obvious thing to check, the other thing is the LAN card settings of the main pc, it might be possible that crap cleaner has deleted some settings (unlikely but you never know).

as the other pc's work ok, can you check the router settings from there?

might just be the router firewall blocking your wired pc due to a change in settings (crap cleaner again)...

good luck

new cable! Didn't think such things 'broke' but it's fixed now!
