Repair TCP/IP and Winsock errors


Use this piece of software to reset your TCP and winsock settings.
http://members.shaw.ca/techcd/WinsockXPFix.exe

You can determine if you have a winsock problem by doing the following.

Put in the windows XP CD and navigate to the support >Tools folder.
Double click setup and select full install.
Click Start >run >cmd {enter}
Type       netdiag /test:winsock /v    {enter}

To reset the winsock registry entries

Click Start >Run >regedit {enter}
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock and delete it
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2 and delete it
Exit Regedit and reboot.

To install TCP/IP over itself (to do this you need a copy of nettcpip.inf  there IS one on the Windows XP CD and MAY be one on your hard drive)

Right click "My Network Places" select Properties.
Right click the connection and select Properties.
Click Install >Protocol >add >have disk
Browse to the location of nettcpip.inf  (see above)
Select TCP/IP click OK
Reboot

Well the fix did not last.  Right back to the same problem of not being able to resolve web addresses.  I can ping and browse them by IP but not by name.  computer will not resolve the name.
Firewall is off, antivirus is off, have tried flushing the DNS ect ect.   Unistalled and re-installed the wireless NIC.  Manually deleted registry entries and reinstlled them.  
 
Other wireless computers connect and browse Internet fine.
