Unable to create network socket connection
Posted on 2000-05-08
I've got a wierd problem. The other day, while on the web, my computer suddenly refused to access anything on the internet. When my computer booted up it gave me an error telling me that it couldn't load network protocol 0 (TCP/IP). I fiddled around a bit with uninstalling drivers, the NIC, etc... and got it to stop complaining about that and I can access other computers on my network just fine through Network Neighborhood. But in Netscape I get the following error: "Netscape is unable to create a network socket connection. There may be insufficient system resources or the network may be down. (Reason:)" No internet apps work. This computer is accessing the 'net through WinGate; the server computer is attached to a cable modem. What is the problem?
