let's try that again - windows socket failure

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Q01Dcm9uYW4=?=, Oct 2, 2004.

  1. i've run the file checker program (sfc) at the suggestion of someone on this
    board, and unfortunatley this has not resolved my issue. I have one hard
    wired computer and a laptop accessing my cable modem through a Linksys
    wireless router. My hard wired computer was overcome with spyware recently
    and since then cannot access my router. It has since been throughly cleaned,
    but when I try to access my router and cable modem either via browser or
    pinging, I get the message "unable to initialize, windows socket failure,
    error code 0". My laptop via my wireless adapter connects to my router and
    cable modem fine. I'm desperate for suggestions... anyone?

    How to determine and recover from Winsock2 corruption

    Be advised that resetting winsock and the tcp/ip stack as instructed in
    this article may break certain networking software (like Novell Client
    and Cisco VPN). If that happens, then reinstalling the networking
    software should fix things right up.
