    1038 Socket Error

    1038: Socket operation on non-socket

    Does anyone know what this means? My wireless connection has worked perfectly until I received this error. I haven't made any changes to my setup and now I can't connect to my network or the internet.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    I've done a quick Google, and found a couple of similar questions -- and no answers. Maybe it's Microsoft's way of saying you need to upgrade to Vista?!

    1038 or 10038?
    (I think - according to this Microsoft page it should be 10038.)

    Googling on "<code> 10038 Socket operation on non-socket </code>" brings up many hits, including this at Experts Exchange.

    Being curious I wanted to see what the answer would be and...... the site you linked to (Expert Exchange) says I would have to subscribe to see! Expensive too! <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15>

    Yep! I did do the scroll (want to dance?) but apparently somewhere along the way I had pushed the "Big Button"! Clearing my cookies -hem, hem - has taken care of my curiosity! <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> very much!
