Win XP and Broadband Winsock Error! Help!
Posted on 2003-02-23
I have been having major problems with XP and my internet connection. I can connect through IE, however when I try to connect using any FTP software such as WSFTP or SmartFTP, I get the following Winsock error:
Winsock error 11001
Winsock error 11004
Connection failed! - connection refused
Can anyone help me with this? I have been trying everything from re-installing XP, to re-installing my NIC card drivers, and nothing seems to work. Oddly enough, if someone else connects from a different system they have no problem connecting. I have also tried renaming the Winsock DLL, however XP just re-installs it again, and I am right back where I started. I have gone to the MS site and the have no solutions to the problem, or at least not one that I could find. BTW, I have cable modem.
Thanks in advance,
