    I have a linksys wireless router. I have a laptop and a desktop. The
    desktop is hardwired tot he router and works fine. The laptop was connected
    wirelessly for a few months and was working fine until yesterday whe all of a
    sudden I could not connect to the router. I've tried connecting using the
    built in card, a plug in card and I've tried connecting wirelessly to both my
    modem and router and I cannot do any of the above anymore. What gives?

    I also tried to connect my laptop directly to the modem and router with an
    ehternet cable. Cannot get the internet that way either now.

    I ran a dianostics test and it said there was a problem with the winsock
    provider catalogue. I reset it to default but still cannot connect to the
    net.

    Did it mention anything about a "Layered Service Provider" [LSP] with
    respect to Winsock?

    If it did, there was a tool called "LSPfix" that may still be out on the Net
    somewhere that could straighten that out.
