binding tcp/ip....

Hello,

This may be a dumb question, but does TCP/IP need to be bound to a network adapter in Windows 2000 if you are only using dialup?  I am troubleshooting a friend's computer and he has just upgraded from Win98SE to Win2K Pro.  In doing so, we had problems getting his modem working right.  We got that seemingly working, but now we can't browse the internet.  At first, we couldn't even ping, it would say "unknown" host pinging by name and I didn't know any IP addresses of any websites off the top of my head.

So then, I went into the settings for the dialup connectoid and found that only tcp/ip was installed for networking components.  So I installed Client for Microsoft Networks, restarted, now when we ping, the names resolve to Ip address, but we still get "Request Timed Out".  I tried pinging the default gateway (got that from ipconfig /all) and that was successful.  But tried pinging the DNS server and that failed (both of them).

So, I am thinking this sounds like a winsock problem, hence my earlier post about trying to find WinsockXPFix, in which that question was answered.  

So back to my question.  I ask this because I tried to do a release and renew of the Ip address while connected, but it says that TCP/IP is not bound to a network adapter.  I know that in Win9x, TCP/IP does get bound to all adapters, dialup or nic.  But I am thinking this is not the case in Win2k and that TCP/IP is only bound when on a LAN connection.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Mark

If you are using dialup connection , you are using the modem .. Have you got the correct drivers for the modem after upgrading to windows 2000 ?

Did you try that winsockfix ?

Before that you may want to check if it is infact a winsock issue

Hi Sunray,

Yes, that's correct, we do have modem working now and it does have the correct drivers.  Now we can't browse the internet, it always says "page cannot be displayed" or it will just sit there trying to bring up a page forever.  It always says it found that site, but it's waiting for reply down in the status bar of IE.

I checked out that article and it appears it's only for Windows Xp, we have Win2k.  Also, I haven't had a chance to use the WinsockXPFix tool yet, I'm not in front of the computer right now, but I will try it.

Thanks Sunray.

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I have a WinXp machine, but my work pc still has win2k.  I'm just checking out other topic areas.  I don't usually venture too far from the Outlook area though.  Well, going home for the night.  Have a good one!

Oops, I hope it's not offensive.  I have nothing against any other countries or their people.  It's just that the US has economy problems and sending jobs overseas is probably not helping.  I hope I didn't offend you or anyone else for that matter.  I might have to go and change some of my wording.  Take care Sunray!  I wish you the best of luck in finding a job.  I think you're a great resource on EE.  Keep up the good work!
