    Microsofts Updates 810030 & 810030 (XP Home)

    Warning Will Robinson! I just installed these two updates (From Start > Windows Update) and after a reboot could not get on the Internet. The subject computer is sitting behind a home router. I determined from another computer in my house that my cable modem was up, as was the router. I then determined that I could not communicate with the router from the PC that had just been updated. Therefore something had to be fried in the network adapter's configuration. After some knocking around, I determined under Network Connections that the update had self-checked "1394" as well as "Local Area Connection" for the Network Adapter. I unchecked 1394 and rebooted. Shazaam! Everything is OK. This is very odd. Thank you Microsoft. Wonder how many people they are knocking offline that have home routers?

    To answer your question: Will Robinson was the boy character on the 60's TV series "Lost In Space". A sci-fi TV series where the family Robinson and others launched off from earth and their flying saucer was sabotoged by Dr Smith and went off course. Was made into a movie 3 years ago.

    Guys like big Al are too young to remember things like Lost in Space from the 60's. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/time.gif border=0 alt=time width=23 height=39>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Thanks, Viking! That's almost as complimentary as being "carded" by some 25 year old youngster at a 7-11!

    Yeah, Isn't that great? I used to love that and would purposely fumble around in my wallet to find something to show my age.
    For some reason, that hasn't happened at all lately?

    Edited by WyllyWylly to add URL code. See the Quick Guide.[/i] <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I saw the post below regarding Lost in Space. The phase was always uttered by the robot whenever some danger was lurking about. The phase was later used by my generation (....I'm 52, no spring chicken) to denote something slightly off the wall. Nope I'm not into sci fi, but probably did OD on TV at an early age.

    Now to the point: I installed these two updates last night -- Q328310: Security Update (Windows XP) and Q810030: Microsoft VM Security Update -- from Windows Update. They downloaded normally and updated to completion. I was asked to reboot my PC. I did. When the unit came back up the internet connection was dead. The PC in question is a Sony desktop that has a firewire connection. After determining that cable modem was up and my router was up, the only answer remaining was the network adapter. when I checked START > NETWORK CONNECTIONS > NETWORK BRIDGE > PROPERTIES I discovered that one of the updates (I don't know which one) had checked the 1394 port as the method I wanted to connect to other computers. I unchecked this and rechecked "Local Area Connection" and rebooted. Everything returned to normal. Since the network connection was fine as I was downloading the update, was broken after the install of the update and reboot, and following my changes was OK again, my only conclusion was that the presets used by Microsoft in one of the updates was thrown for a loop by either the existence of the 1394 port on the adapter card (more likely) or by the router (less likely).

    OK, I'll bite - who is Will Robinson? From my "reading," both here in The Lounge and elsewhere, I haven't heard of anyone having their network connection "busted" the way you say yours was by installing any updates.

    Or maybe it's something with your particular configuration. I experienced no problems whatsoever with my network connection, 1394 port included, after applying those two updates. It would be nice if software vendors could check every possible scenario and combination of hardware and software, but it's impossible - and things like this happen sometimes. The important point here is that I don't think this update is a connection breaker - not that Microsoft hasn't issued some faulty patches in the past. I just don't think this is one of them.

    For the record, those updates don't contain "presets" - although they may force a rebuild of your network connections, in which case default settings might apply.
