Probably your server not responding.If using a modem are all the lights on that are supposed to be on.

Or if you have a modem or modem/router shut it off for 10 seconds and then start it again.See if that helps.

I assumed it was looking for the correct ISP details.Not sure about IPv6 as most computers use IPv4.

If you give us your ISP name it might help others help you.

I take it you are on one of those Superhubs then.Have you tried switching it off for 10 seconds and on again.

I also have one but there is no IPv6 on the connection details.

Not sure if unticking IPv6 would help or make matters worse.

I sometimes get problems with my connections but it usually fixes itself out within 24 hours.

You could try here and see if any service faults.

fallenarch, I take it you're seeing this message immediately after switching on the PC and well before Windows starts. If that's the case then the PC is trying to boot using a network connection. When that fails, it eventually boots from the PC's hard disk and Windows starts normally. To rectify this, go into the PC's BIOS and check the "Boot Order". Make sure that network boot is the last item in the list.

If the thought of this makes you at all anxious then try phoning your PC manufacturer who should be able to talk you through it.
