    I have no other advice regarding that situation. I no longer even run XP to check if there could be another way, so that link does seem interesting. Even if long, it could provide a way to solve your problem.
    If you check the properties of your adapter, does it show NetBios as one the active protocols?

    Thanks for getting me to the stage of identifying that the problem was to do with NetBT.

    I have made use of

    which went smoothly and I now have an internet connection.

    You could try a System Restore to a point prior to experiencing the issue.

    Thanks for your interest but I did try a restore almost as soon as I the problem showed on most of the dates back to the earliest date available, getting on all occasions “Your computer cannot be restored to:” – I had used the restore facility fairly recently, so the failure was new as well. Since things have been working properly I have set a restore point and been able to use it.
