Preferred Solution: IE-7 and connectivity issue with system help

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Does anyone have information on when a security update will be available for the issue?
On 10/18/17 MS Article Stated: "Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release of the security patch. This is expected to be available in another 2-3 weeks or earlier."

For Issue:
JET provider is no longer able to connect after the October update. This update (released October 10<sup>th</sup>, 2017) includes a security update release that inadvertently affects the JET provider. The update was kb4041678 and included in
the patch kb4041681.  These patches affected the Operating System, which adversely has an issue with the following technologies: Microsoft Windows Search Component, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Internet Explorer, Windows
kernel, Windows Wireless Networking, Microsoft JET Database Engine, and the Windows SMB Server. It is important to note that the changes were not to these technologies themselves.

Opps, maybe not so unique since I just noticed an ENTIRE forum for browsers...perhaps moving this is appropriate...if so, please do. I will be reading up in there.

Its interesting because I can't find any mention of it anywhere on this site. Specifically browser connectivity is lost after a little while (guessing 7 minutes, though it may be a number of browser pages displayed trigger i went 3 hrs today) after I start browsing. If I don't start a browser, the death clock doesn't begin until I start browsing. Now, at the same time, all shares, the other machines on the network, work fine. Also if I am playing an online game, I will not have any issues. Just IE and firefox can't display pages and other programs (like updates of AVG) are soon to follow.

***Important to note this is new, the network was fine for over a week before this started a couple days ago.

I notice, when it works, net info states Homegroup - ready to connect (I am using a workgroup to connect to other machines) but last night, during a browser outage it said it was connected. I notice now it calls my workgroup a homegroup (I think is used to say workgroup)

(This problem may have started around when I tried to synchronise a folder to "always available offline", but there are other things that were done in that period of time unfortuately, all have since been undone.

System...Win7 7100 all updated.

I am currently trouble shooting a network problem for a medium size company, aprox 250 users. The issue is as follows:
A connectivity problem occurs on random clients which leaves them with an ip address received from DHCP server but the client only has connectivity with its own vlan. (DHCP server on different VLAN) The switch has ip helper set up so the communication to get an ip address is being done via the switch and on to the DHCP server.(The primary function of IP helper) The client can't ping anything outside its own VLAN.
Our only work around is to assign a static DHCP ip address on the DHCP server using the MAC address of the client. Issue an ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew on the affected client to get the assigned static DHCP address and full connectivity is restored.
There is a mix of Cisco and 3com switches, mostly Cisco with a Cisco 3750 multi layer switch at the heart of the network.
I have analysed the configuration of the devices and everything looks good.
I know its hard to diagnose from this brief description but any similar problems experienced and solutions discovered are appreciated.

I have a ISA server which i use to connect all my systems to the internet. But there are times when i want direct access to the Internet without any firewall in between ( i know its not safe). For that i connect my DSL modem to an 8 port switch and from there to two of my systems and it works perfectly fine, i can browse...download and play games etc. But when i connect a third system...i cant connect to the internet although i can access systems connected to the switch.
I checked up DNS, IP and everything....still no good.

Any help would be appreciated.

Good morning everyone,

slowly but steadily I am nearing the edge of sanity. I am not overly technically gifted and, to my dismay, certain members of the WoTC support staff aren't, either. I'm not sure I actually expect a solution as much as I hope for an explanation of an issue that's presented itself to me.

The issue is as follows: One particular application (namely Magic the Gathering Arena (yes, I am aware that there's a game subforum, but this really is a networking issue - promise!)) refuses to stay connected to the host for any amount of time. In these trying times (being a teacher and confined to my home desk due to Corona) I spend way too much time on online games, none of which are giving me any sort of grief. I'm on a gigabit fiber connection that's, similarly, never acted up on me before. But for some reason I have not been able to maintain a connection to the MtGA host for longer than about 2 minutes in the past 3 days (never had an issue with the game before). I contacted their support who, as they usually do, presented me with a list of off-the-shelf solutions. Suffice it to say, none of them worked, except for the last one.

A VPN. I'm in Germany and the CSR suggested I try a US-based VPN and this fixed it. I don't plan on making use of a VPN as a long-term solution, but at least I get to scratch the itch in the meantime, right? Well, I wrote back to the support who said, and I quote:

Hi Everyone.
I have a Netgear JFS516 switch which is directly connected to the D-link DES-3026 switch.The problem is up-link lED on netgear switch keeps blinking for 1 minute and then goes off, resulting no network connectivity on the part of Netgear JFS516 switch.

These 2 switches connected with straight cable and I crimped the cable on both side but the problem still persists.

A:Connectivity Issue

Did you test the cable with a cable tester? Sounds like a cable issue or perhaps a bad switch. Did you take the switch close to the other switch and connect it with a short patch cable as a test?

Hi, Can anyone please help, I have a problem on my son's computer. we have lost access to the internet I just keep getting a message stating "limited or no connectivity" I have tried resetting the network wizard in Windows XP but to no avail, I have tried the repair connection facility but that says " unable to set IP address" We connect through a D link wireless router. my computer down stairs connects fine.
I don't know if this is connected to the problem but when I boot up the computer I get a message stating that Rundll C:\PROGRAM~1\NEWDOT~\NEWDOT~1.DLL is missing or cannot be loaded has that caused the problem?
Thanks in anticipation.

A:No connectivity issue

You have spyware

NEWDOT is spyware that hijacks your web browser and host file. You need to remove it. First you need to remove this key from the registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run\new.net startup
After you have deleted this key you need to reboot your system. Then run msconfig and go to startup and stop these process
(may or may not exist):
Then you will need to do a file search for newdot(here is an example list)
You will have to unregister each of then and then delete them. If you don't know how go to this site http://articles.networktechs.com/111-p1.php
Then remove the folder %program_files%\newdotnet
And to finish it up run a regcleaner if you don't have one here is a link to one
Hope this helps.

My laptop which i have recently installed a fresh xp copy on, is having internet connectivity issues. there is only 1 driver that works for the wireless lan and 1 driver for the wire lan that but that wont work for some reason but im not concerned as long as the wifi works on it. the issue is that every 2-5 mins the wireless disconnects, and reconnects taking anywhere from 1 min - several mins to aquire ip address. i could understand if it was clear across my home away from the wireless router, but its stationed right next to the router, so there should be no interferrance problems. i use halfdone's unknown devices driver informer and that tells me that the proper drivers are all installed on my laptop and that i dont need anything else. device manager confirms. i dont understand why my wired internet wont work if it has the proper drivers, and i dont understand why the wifi cuts out like it does. would you assume that its the router ( though its brand new and doesnt cut on my other wifi systems ) or the computer?

I have just bought a new router and am trying to connect it. I did the basic set up with an install disc to the problem is that when I connect to the Wireless network it only gives me limited access to the internet for instance I am able to use Skype and other applications that rely on internet connection, but when it comes to web browsers (both Mozilla & Safari) it shows the url section loading but only ever makes it mid way (the page always stays blank) . I also have access to the router settings using I cloned my MAC address on the router settings as that was prior advice.

If anyone could help it would be amazing..

router settings also say that its connected

and I am using a Mac

Thanks in advance

A:Connectivity Issue.. Please Help

Hey all,

I'm finally posting here after having read around on the site before and gotten good info.

I set up a wireless home network between two computers (a laptop and a tablet) a few months ago. The laptop is the "base" computer and the table has a wireless receiver; the router is a DLink 524.

I never had any connectivity issues (internet) until last week on the laptop when my free version of Zonealarm started acting screwy and not displaying any info when I would open the program up. I updated the version, and since then cannot use the internet while Zonealarm is running. I'm confused, though, because the tablet has Zonealarm and has no problems accessing the internet at all. DLink tech support tells me that the problem is in the configuration of Zonealarm, and that I should contact them, but I'm running the freebie version and so don't anticipate getting much help there.

Is this an issue of ports (opening/forwarding)? If so, I have no experience in that and would appreciate if someone could take a second to let me know what they think should be done. I'm willing to just scrap Zonealarm and try something that works better with the router if need be, but I'm willing to bet someone who knows what they're doing could fix this easily, and that the problem is with me.

Thanks so much,


A:Odd connectivity issue

Go into the router and turn off the blocking of computers not running ZA. I'm not sure if this is the problem but I do know that I've seen such as problem in DLink routers before because some models now have a feature(some added with firmware update) which will allow you to configure the router with ZA so they don't interfere with eachother, it aslo has a feature which will let you block computers not running ZA so that you don't have unprotected machines on the network. While this is a good idea in theory, it also causes problems for people who don't know it is there.

BTW, the setup you mention where one laptop is "base" as you call it, is incorrect. When using a router to share your internet, the router itself is the server and all computers are the clients. This misconception causes a lot of confusion and sometimes makes it difficult to diagnose a problem when you call one machine a "base" or "server" when it is not.

I've recently (in the past few weeks) been having trouble with Internet Explorer, version 7.0.5730.11. When I first open the program, the page is blank, and the status bar (bottom of the IE window) briefly flashes "Detecting proxy settings" and then sits at "Connecting to site" for several minutes before displaying the typical "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" screen.

In dealing with the problem, I've found that whenever I get the "Connecting to site" message in the status bar, I immediately close IE, then reopen it. Sometimes the first time I do this results in Google (homepage) loading, but most of the time I must repeat this proces several times (up to about 10) before IE loads Google.

When already working properly, I've noticed that IE has no problems opening links in new windows or tabs. Does anyone have an idea of what could be causing this problem?

Relevant Information:

Windows XP Service Pack 3
IE version 7.0.5730.11

Please let me know if additional information is required, and I will do my best to provide it. Thanks for reading.

Hope someone out there has come across this... Bellsouth (DSL) using a Westel Modem directly connected to the Computer (ethernet), no switch, hubs, etc.... All connected to a UPS which I turn off nightly. When you first turn it all on, cannot connect to Internet, E-mail, etc... The DSL Modem shows steady power light, steady sync light and ethernet light flickers as it is working, but nada... disabled Firewall (Zone alarm) but nothing. Cannot ping or get to the outside. Most of the time, after a reboot it will then work as it should. No viruses on the computer, all updates are done (Windows 2000 Pro, SP4, IE6 with all updates, etc). It is becoming frustrating to say the least, and takes nearly as long as my dial up connection did just to get online... I contacted Bellsouth who tries to claim it is a hardware issue which I do not agree with... I changed the DSL modem to it is always on, independent of the computer and that didnot help... Next I am going to try a different Ethernet card... All dsl modem updates are done as well... Has anyone else had this problem? Please advise.. thanks

how do you have everything configured?

Can you see the wireless router from your laptop?

Ideal setup is to have the "uplink" port (labeled as WAN or Internet" from your wireless router going to one of the LAN (or "Ethernet") ports on the DSL modem.

Hello all,

I am new here but hoping still that someone might have the answer to an ongoing issue within our network.

I am dealing with a large network (large in the physical size not necessarily how many PCs connected). There are 4 different buildings that connect with a fiber optical connection. Each building has it's own internet source. I deal with two of these buildings. The connection runs underground. When I link our two buildings, the networked PCs communicate but the internet connection is lost.

I am not sure if the other buildings have these connection issues but I've noticed that at one end it looks like an adapter is connecting the fiber optical possible to a cat5 looking jack. Is it possible that that's the issue?

Have you heard of this before. I happens to be a POS system that we need working between the two buildings. So apart from one or two office computers on the network that needs internet we need it for processing credit cards as well.

Any help will do. Sorry if I wasn't all that specific or clear... I'm still new at this stuff.

After some very il-advised tinkering with my PC, my edimax 802.11n PCI card will not connect to the internet despite detecting a strong signal. I disbled all "un-essential" PC processes to free up some power, only to realize this was crippling; I had to re-configure them all as eithe manual or automatic start up (guess work)- I have deleted nothing; I did attempt to create a new connection so it may be that I need to re-install some drivers.

It may be too vague for me to helpfully convey, but I wanted to lay down the gist of it incase a quick fix or general, glarring point strikes you that would not have struck me.

Internet is working fine in my mobile and other laptops so there isn't any problem in router. Please help me.

Hi @Dhruvjariwala, Welcome to HP Forums! I have read your post and wanted to help. I understand that the laptop does not connect to WiFi after upgrading to Windows 10.

In both IE and Chrome, i can't connect to any websites.  Just get a "Waiting For" forever.  I pinged google.com from command prompt and got response on all four hits.  Other devices on same wireless work just fine, and this says its connected without issues (via "troubleshooter")
Any ideas of what could the issue?

Have you tried temporarily connecting by a wired connection to see if that helps?

Hi I believe to have a severe problem with my network connection on my laptop. I have a Gateway MS2274 with a Atheros AR5B91 wireless adapter.

One day, shortly after I returned from a trip home, my adapter suddenly refused to establish and internet connection with my schools network, which requires a username and password to login upon opening the browser, but this time the page would not even load, saying "Server not found". Even though it appears to be connected to the network "Enabled, Bridged". Which brings me to my next concern because I had messed with the Network Bridge previously to connect to Xbox Live using my laptop, which worked and had no problems and had not even recently used it when the connect went bad. And now the Network Bridge is connected to "Unidentified Network", and I am connected to the colleges network which is listed as "Unidentified with Limited Access". Also, under the activity it says that I am sending packets but I am receiving 0. I have done virus and spyware scans and do not believe my computer is infected. Also, Google will occasionally load for a few seconds so I know I am connected but it won't last!

I have already tried resetting winsock and IPv4 and IPv6. I have tried turning off my firewall which was standard Windows (though I'm not sure if this problem should be ruled out). I have also trip disabling the bridge and reinstalling the Cisco Clean Access Agent that the school uses. I'... Read more

A:Limited Connectivity Issue

I've been having problems connecting to FF and IE after installing several Windows updates. On Firefox I can only connect to my university email page, every other webpage is either blank or gives the "connection to the server was reset while the page was loading" error. IE states that it cannot display the webpage and flashes ieframe.dll error in the bottom left corner when loading up. Diagnostics check found no problems and all applications that need Internet connectivity, such as AIM, work perfectly fine. I've tried doing a system restore to the settings before the update, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, turning off firewalls, clearing cookies/temp internet files/cache, disabling Phishing filter in IE, disabling IPV6, etc. and nothing seems to really work. After clearing data IE did seem to work briefly last night, but stopped working this morning. Any suggestions on what else I can try? Thank you.

A:Firefox 3.0.5 Connectivity Issue

Well the same this just happened to me about 2 hours ago when I updated Firefox and none of the solutions posted on this website worked for me. (As I was having a major panic attack) I tried restoring my computer to yesterday's settings, go to

Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore->Next->**Select a Restore Point [Click on the day before you updated Mozilla Firefox]->Click Next->Click Restore and it will automatically restart your computer do not press anything else. It may take a couple of minutes.

Restoring your computer is like going back in time so to speak. Your computer will be in the exact same state as it was the date in which you choose. Don't worry THIS CAN BE UNDONE. Just go back to the same place and click undo last System Restore (though you shouldn't find any need to). This method has worked for me several times as a quick-fix for times when my computer has crashed or I've downloaded things that have messed up my computer.
Hope this helps!

Hi All

I have a Linksys Wireless ADSL Router and when I try and connect using the wireless adapter I get a message saying limited or no connectivity, however I have a different laptop which connects without any problems.

When I disable the WPA security on the router I can connect no problems...

Any advise would be helpful.

A:Wireless Connectivity Issue

Make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter. Does it support WPA?

Any chance of wireless interference (e.g., 2.4Ghz cordless phone or another network on the same or close channel)? Sometimes interference has a bigger negative impact on secured networks.

My computer gave me a blue screen and after the restart my connection kept saying "limited or no connectivity." I tried resetting my router, modem, and computer with no success. In addition it would not allow me to access my router configuration wizard in firefox or IE. I am convinced that this issue is the result of a virus or some other malware. I am using windows xp. I am not very computer savvy and I would appreciate any help. I have included the log files requested below.

I'm also having this same problem. Have tried every suggestion proffered here to no avail. Running Windows XP SP2 (in Bootcamp on MacBook running Leopard), connecting to D-Link wireless ADSL 2+ Router. This same computer connects flawlessly in Mac OS X.

As soon as I boot up in Windows XP, however, the wireless connection shows up, indicates that my computer is connected to it, and that there is strong signal, but weak or no connectivity. On attempting to repair the connection, it informs me that the IP could not be acquired. The computer's IP shows up as, a private IP. My Dell laptop (also running Windows XP SP2 and connecting to the same D-Link router), on the other hand, connects without any hitch, and shows an IP of Indeed it shows up in the router window under DHCP clients, whereas the bootcamp computer does not show up at all in the router window.

Have attempted to manually change the IP to connect to the router as, but this also is not working. The router is set to WEP (I know, it's lame), I've double-triple checked the key is correct.

As far as I know (or am informed by the computer when I attempted to update the driver to a more recent version), the driver is the correct version: Atheros AR5008 wireless network adapter, driver date 6/16/2007, v.

On trying to "repair this connection", Windows tries to renew the IP, and reports "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because... Read more

I am working on a clients machine:

Lenovo X230 ThinkPad Laptop Tablet
Windows 7 Professional x64 w/ SP1

Connected to a network domain (able to browse network folders/files/other machines) Both wireless & wired.


Cannot connect to any websites using Internet Explorer. Pages come up 'unable to load' ... Google search works up until the search results display...clicking on a result doesn't produce anything. Also able to get to Yahoo but clicking on any links also produces nothing. All other URLs 'unable to load and show up with a %20 before the url (ie. %20msn.com) Both wireless & wired.

Tried Firefox & Google Chrome with same results.

All browsers function properly in SafeMode.

Ran multiple scans (MalwareBytes, Spybot S&D, Super Antispyware, CCleaner, Glary Registry Cleaner etc). Returned very little results and cleaned. Repeated until 0 results displayed. Rebooted with same negative results connecting to internet.

Machine is picking up a network IP address and able to connect to network. Also, the network icon in the taskbar will sometimes have an exclamation mark
and sometimes not, with same results either way.

Configured msconfig for selective startup with only MS services enabled. Rebooted and seems to work fine. However on numerous reboots the exclamation mark seems to come and go whenever it pleases. Mostly it remains present. But still connects to internet.

I'm having a wifi issue. My wifi signal will all of the sudden stop seeing available networks and my wifi connection will say "connected, no internet access." This issue does not occur with any other device I own.  I've tried: - turning my wifi adapter on and off - using the network troubleshooter, all this came up with was an error that says "network cable broken or not plugged in."       - i don't have an ethernet cord plugged in - searching for an update to the network driver - uninstalling and reinstalling the network driver       - this serves only as a temporary fix ( 5-10 mins) - uninstalled and reinstalled with a driver that was downloaded online - turning off bluetooth and ethernet connection options under "change adapter options" none of these have resolved the issue and i'm out of options. Also, sometimes the wifi icon in the system tray will disappear along with the driver for the network adapter.

have several devices... ipad2 toshiba laptop dell laptop... the problem is that only the dell 1501 connects to the network at my friends location all three devices connect at my location meaning they all connect to the network so the problem seems to be an ipconfig issue or default gateway problem... how can i resolve this give me a step by step if possible i suppose it has to do with router not recognizing the specific devices
<edited out the links to start a new thread - moderator etaf>

A:Network Connectivity Issue

lets see an ipconfig /all from the working dell and then an ipconfig /all from the faulty pc

how are they connected to the router wireless or cable ?
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

I have Firefox 3.0.5 installed on an XP based system. It works fine when it is connected, but that is the problem. Every time I try to open it I get an error messege. It says "Proxy Server Refused Connection". I can go into tools/options/network/settings and it always shows "Manual proxy configuration". If I change it to "No proxy" or "Auto detect" and click through the OKs, it works fine, but when I close it down it reverts back to "Manual" the next time I start it up.

My issue is that I cannot connect to the internet from my desktop PC, but I am able to connect wirelessly with my laptop via the same router. At the risk of providing too much info, I'll include as much detail as I can remember:

This problem starts a couple of days ago when I went to upgrade iTunes (after successful installing more RAM on my machine that same day) and revived a message that the iTunes upgrade couldn't be completed because bonjour could not be found in the expected location. After searching online, I read that I needed to delete and reinstall bonjour. I tried deleting with Add/Remove programs, but wasn't able to. Then I downloaded Revo Uninstalled to remove bonjour. My first attempt wasn't successful, so I then selected "Advanced" mode of Revo and deleted all the bolded items suggested by Revo that might be bonjour related. This is when I realized I probably deleted too much.

Hey all,
I'm having some difficulty with my WiFi connection. The problem began over the summer, and has been getting progressively worse. When the problem began, I was living in a different house. I recently moved to a new house and the problem has continued and worsened at the original rate without skipping a beat. In the specs below are the data for my CURRENT modem/router device, idk what my old one was. My laptop is usually able to connect to the network extremely well; high download/upload rates and strong connection, etc. However, occasionally and with no clear correlation to any other conditions or events, my connection drops. There are 3 other computers (2 laptops and a desktop, the laptops are Macs and the desktop is running Windows 7) and an xbox in my house. All of these have no such issue in connecting to the network. My laptop is the only victim. My drivers are all up to date. The strange thing is that when my connection 'drops,' it doesn't really drop. My laptop is able to see the network, but will not connect. ThinkVantage Access Connections (TVAC) attempts to connect after losing the link but, after about 2-3 minutes of trying, gives up and tells me that the wep/wpa-psk information is not being accepted by the network. Windows Network Connections (WNC) shows the yellow exclamation symbol and alerts me that I am connected, but that I have "no internet access." Even after TVAC gives up and fails to connect, WNC still says I'm c... Read more

Hi everyone, I'm having an odd issue with my 5 year old Sony Viao. I have my router connected to a Cable modem and the Sony computer is connected directly to the router via network cable. Sometimes I lose all connectivity on my Sony, but at the same time my laptop continues to work just fine in the house so I know its not the internet connection directly. I try powering down everything (including the computer, cable modem and router) and then sometimes I get good connectivity back for about 1/2 hour. Then what usually happens is after about 1/2 hour I start to lose connectivity on the Sony but only to web sites that I have not visited in the past half hour. So if I use google and CNN.com I can continue to use those sites, but when I try going to other sites that I didn't use during the 1/2 hour of good connectivity I get the standard "This page cannot be displayed message". Has anyone seen anything like this before, its really very confusing.

Thanks for everyone's help in advance.

Hello. I am a new user to Techguy.org

I just purchased a new computer. It works fine except for 1 thing. The internet. Every so often I will get disconnected from the internet because of Limited Connectivity. When this happens, I close the internet and after about 20 seconds I get Local and Internet Back. It is very annoying. It happens mostly when I play World of Warcraft. I will log in, play for 30seconds to 2 Minutes and then get disconnected because of the Limited Connectivity problem.

I have tried resetting the router, I have called verizon and had many live chats with thier agents and none have helped me..
Here are some information I think would be usefull to someone trying to help me fix my problem.

I am using an Actiontec M1424-WR Router.
I am using a Realtek 8185 Extensible 802.11b/g Wireless Device. Its the antenna in the back of the computer that gives me my wireless connection.
I am using the connection Wirelessly.
I have Verizon FiOS internet service.
I am using Windows Vista Home Premium

Also there is no possible way for me to wire the computer and the router
I have gone into the router settings and tried to mess around with stuff and still nothing works.

I have tried to update drivers for the devices and everything seems to be up to date.
It will work for maybe 15-20 minutes using the internet and maybe 2 minutes before getting the limited connectivity issue playing World Of Warcraft.

Here is an Ipconfig/all of my connection now while I am ge... Read more
