    Corrupt tcp/ip stack (XP home)

    Edited by WyllyWylly to add URL code. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Hi there, hoping someone can help:

    Symptom: All command-line TCP/IP utilities (ping, tracert, nslookup, etc.) work from cmd.exe. However, all TCP/IP services fail in the GUI (IE gives DNS errors, even if accessing a site using its IP address).

    Setup: Dell Dimension 4300S; WinXP Home (no SP's), Dial-up networking (no NIC). WinXP was installed by Dell (i.e., no XP CD). No firewalls or anything odd.

    Attempted resolution: per Microsoft's Knowledge Base Article Q299357, ran "netsh int ip reset" multiple times until the log file showed nothing but "<complete>". Problem still remained. Rebooted; no help. Ran "netsh int ip reset" from safe-mode command prompt and re-booted; still no IP connectivity in the GUI, but full connectivity from the command interpreter.

    Other things tried: reset all internet options to the defaults (tried all combos of automatic proxy detection on/off ). Computer is Virus-free. No TCP/IP filtering of any kind. It;s a plain & boring winsock. No duplicate winsock files anywhere.

    Any solutions short of an fdisk-type action?

    Make sure you have your client ID, password, phone number to dial and addresses for POP3 and SMTP servers ready.

    Delete all your existing dial-up connections (Press Windows key and E key on your keyboard simultaneously to call Windows Explorer, then on the left pane right-click My Network Places icon and from pop-up menu choose Properties, on the next window right-click your dial-up connections under "Dial-Up" section and choose "delete" from pop-up menu.)

    Using your Internet provider's connection dialer create a new connection.
    If you don't have one, press Windows key and R key on your keyboard simultaneously (to call Run dialog) and type (or copy and paste) exactly as following:
    C:Program FilesInternet ExplorerConnection Wizardicwconn1.exe
    Press Enter and follow the wizard.
    Or, if you prefer, on Network Connections window (Properties of My Network Places) from File menu choose New connection and follow the wizard.
