Q: Data Connectivity - When will Issue Excel Connectivity with Jet OLE DB Provider Due to update kb4041678 Patch kb4041681 Be Available

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.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I currantly have a wireless internet provider and my internet recently started to only connect from 5pm till about 9 am then the rest of the day I am disconnected. My provider has given me all kinds of excuses after not finding any physical problem. We are on the edge of service but how can we have EXCELLENT signal and run multiple computers, Xbox live and Netflix and then during the same hours of the day have not service? We do live in a problamatic area and have very few options. One being dial up and the other broadband that is not fast enough. Can anyone explain to me what is going on? Having no answer is driving me crazy! I have gotten the excuses of my tree's have gotten too tall, your on the edge of the service area, it maybe the moring dew? What my tree's are just as tall in the evening as the afternoon, and my house is in the same area at all times.

Hello all.
One of my Clients is running a Dell Dimension E520 with Windows XP SP3.

Recently, he lost his network connection, and gets the "Windows has detected a problem with the Winsock provider catalog on this computer" message when he runs the network diagnostic tool for XP.

Some things I've tried already:

1. Reboot. (duh)

2. Moved the machine from DHCP to Static - No dice

3. Tried the command line reset that I've found online:

netsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset

- No dice

4. Downloaded LSPFix, but haven't run it because I don't really know what I'm trying to remove there. Am doing a bit more research on that.

5. Run a Malware scan, didn't help
The machine cannot ping any addresses, and the "Limited or no Connectivity" on the connection hasn't changed no matter what I've done.

Suggestions please? Thank you!

A computer running Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 1) says IPv4 Connectivity: Local and IPv6 Connectivity: Limited whether I use a wireless connection or a Ethernet cable. It appears to be connected and has Excellent signal strength when I use wireless, but I cant ping anything. In Device Manager Microsoft 6to4 Adapter had a Code 10 - This device cannot start error. I disabled it thinking that it might be the problem. It didn't solve anything but I left it disabled. The other drivers seem happy. I also read that the Internet Protocol Version 6 isn't used so I unchecked it in the connection properties.

Hello,
 
I am not certain what is relevant information, but this is an acer R7-571 with Windows 8.1. Though I can find networks when out and about, say at Starbucks or something, I cannot connect to them. It comes back with the response that the "connection is limited". This happens at friends' houses as well, using their password to join the network it always says connection limited and then I cannot get on the web.
 
I have tried all of the fixes that I could find thus far, but have had no success. I know, this is vague, I don't recall what I was doing, but through searching you can find some "solutions" but unfortunately they have not worked for me.
 
Currently I am trying to access a VPN using CiscoAnyconnect and this does not work either, is this connected to my other issue? The failure with the VPN is that "The VPN connection failed due to unsuccessful domain name resolution".
 
 
Thanks for any help, Terry

Welcome,
To use VPN you must be known by the server you are trying to reach. I've used VPN to connect from home to my work network. I needed the information from our IT department to reach our servers and they had to grant me access so that the domain would allow me to play.
Have you done any configuration to your network card as far as DNS servers or any of the other parameters available?

Hello, I have been having a problem recently with my desktop's wireless connections. I know the hardwire connections worked without a problem while I was living on campus but while I am at home on winter break I have to rely on a wireless setup. The machine's specs are listed next to my profile name, and I am using a Linksys wireless-N receiver and router. What happens is once I log on and the machine boots up it automatically connects to my secured and encrypted connection with full signal strength and pretty good speed. It is capable of full internet connectivity and web browsing, but it often fails after a while.

I have had this problem for a couple weeks, ever since I moved out of my dorm. My brother uses the same USB receiver and we tried switching out the adapters with the same result so I am also fairly certain the adapter is not the cause here. Typically, if I only browse the web the connection has no problems, but if I try to connect to Steam or use Himachi to connect to a LAN with some friends the signal changes from high strength to limited connectivity and displays the yellow triangle/exclamation point icon on the task tray.

Hello -- I have a few basic questions I hope someone can help me with. I installed Office 2010 in September and for the first time was faced with dealing with Outlook 2010 pst files via my comcast email account. As I recall, I pulled my existing email account ([email protected]) and the outlook.pst file came into being as well. I believe I must have duplicated all my email folders and messages to the outlook.pst file because for some reason I thought it would be like a safe backup.

I have been experiencing issues with email for the past month or so. Everything comes up quickly from my outlook.pst file in Outlook, but my assumption that all incoming email would also arrive there was of course incorrect. The problem now is that my [email protected] email account takes a long time to download messages (mostly the ones in folders vs new messages) and more times than not, the account says "not responding" and either eventually pulls up the messages or stops working and I get a red "disconnected" cross on the Outlook icon that confirms it's not working. If I shut Outlook down and restart it, it usually starts up but I have the same issues all over again.

I feel my email folders are too large (they go back more than 10 years), so I need to archive my email. My question is this: Can I safely just remove from outlook.pst all the folders and messages I had duplicated there? BTW, the size of the outloo.pst file is 2.3 GB, and the email pst.file is ...

Hi,
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 192.168.2.1 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

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):
ndnuninstall4_50.exe
ndnuninstall5_20.exe
ndnuninstall5_40.exe
ndnuninstall5_48.exe
uninstall3_88.exe
uninstall4_50.exe
uninstall4_80.exe
uninstall5_48.exe
uninstall5_20.exe
wcmdmgr.exe
Then you will need to do a file search for newdot(here is an example list)
newdot~1.dll
newdot~2.dll
newdotnet3_36.dll
newdotnet3_70.dll
newdotnet3_88.dll
newdotnet4_50.dll
newdotnet4_85.dll
newdotnet4_88.dll
newdotnet5_20.dll
newdotnet5_48.dll
newdotnet6_22.dll
newdotnet6_30.dll
newdotnet6_38.dll
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

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.

Hi,
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.
Thanks

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 74.125.93.104" 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

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.

Thanks!

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,

Jason
 

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.

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:

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

I asked this in web/email but no one wants to help me...

I play C&C Renegade (on WOL) religiously. About 2-3 weeks ago, my computer got virused and i had to reset a bunch of things, and i think something messed up my 'net connection settings or something, because since then Renegade has been disconnecting randomly (always at the good times, too).

to further verify, my AOL/MSN (well ok, i use trillian) has been experiencing these disconnects too:

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?

I am laptop ignorant. I personally prefer a desktop, but my wife desperately desired a laptop.

This expensive pain has a RJ-45 connection on the side. Under the network connections, within the LAN or Highspeed Connections, are an Ethernet Controller, Bluetooth Network and a Wireless Network Controller.

She used to have a dekstop too, so there was obviously an internal modem and a wall splitter.

We normally connect using Broadband DSL with a user name and password into the ISP. Stupid me thought this would work with the Ethernet card as an internal modem - not!

Where in the world should I go from here? Should I get an external modem? A wireless router? What?

I'm sincerely looking for advice.

Hello, I realize that this is a reoccurring issue, so I apologize for yet ANOTHER thread regarding this problem. I've searches the forums and have tried all of the troubleshooting I've come across. Anyways, I saw in other threads that the following information was requested to move forward. Oops, I almost forgot. I have an HP Mini 1000. I have had no issues whatsoever connecting to numerous networks, the only issue I have is with this one in particular, which happens to be my new home network... Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I'm using Vista Home Premium 64 bit with an Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g wifi adapter. I just moved and I had a working wireless connection to a router where I moved from. Now I'm getting limited connectivity to an SMC8014W-G Broadband Wireless Gateway.

Hi,

Just incase you really need them? Make a note of the setting for the IPv6 & IPv4 settings.

Then remove the "preferred" IPv6 & IPv4 addresses & connect again.

My computer has begun telling me that I have limited or no connectivity from my wired connection. I have had this problem once before and fixed it by replacing the network card, but that did not work this time. My roommates? computers are wireless and are running fine off the router. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drives. Changed cords, rebooted the router (many times), called the internet provider and they reset the modem and have tried to do system restore but that fails to restore to any prior points as well. Any ideas would be welcome.

Hello, this is my first post on this particular forum, I am trying to find some help to get the internet running on my Windows Vista PC.

I have a 2WIRE950 router and a Belkin USB adapter that I just installed. I've installed one of these Belkin adapters before and had the same problem I just can't recall how I fixed it last time. Under "Network and Sharing Center" it simply says "Unidentified Network (Private Network) (I have to change it back to private from public every time I change ANYTHING), Access: Limited Connectivity, Connection: Wireless Network Connection (2WIRE950)." I checked my IP configuration and under autoconfiguration IPv4 address starts 169.254 which I have read is a problem, but I do not know how to fix it. My IPv6 address is a mixture of letters and numbers and from what I've read so far doesn't really matter but if you need it I'll post it.

I've tried re-booting everything including my PC, router, re-installing my adapter, etc. I used to have an ethernet cable I could just plug in and screw the wireless problems but it was damaged and I don't have another cable long enough to run into my room and I cant move the router/modem out of my father's room so it seems my only choice is to get a wireless connection.

Any ideas or assistance would be greatly appreciated. If you need anymore information please let me know. I'm using a friend's PC to check for replies for now. Thank you in advanc... Read more

Ok so i have home premium 64bit and a d link 624 and im getting a limited connectivity issue. If i restart the router while the computer is on it will connect just fine, but not if the router is on before the computer.

However that is only if I have WPA enabled. If i have the router unsecured it works fine even if the computer is on before the router. I am using WPA TKIP and PSK. Any ideas?

i would say it is the router, personally i have had nothing but issues with d-link.

My pc has a built in ethernet port and a wireless card installed. I just moved, and before then I didnt have any issues. After the move, I didnt have internet yet, but was able to connect to some wireless networks to get online. Now that I have internet, I tried connecting to the ethernet port. I'm getting the limited connectivity message. I get it directly connected to the modem, or connected to a hub, the second pc is surfing fine. I tried different cat5 cables, I uninstalled and reinstalled the NIC drivers, rebooted in safe mode with networking, reinstalled winsock, ran LSP fix(didnt find any issue), the internet protocols are set to auto, I uninstalled my firewall and antivirus, ran Spybot S&D and Spysweeper. Nothing I've tried has fixed the issue. I can still surf wirelessly, but not with the ethernet port.

Hi.
My friend and I have been having a network issue for quite some time and have not been able to figure out the problem.
The problem is this: we cannot connect to each other in games when using Hamachi or Tunngle. Also when attempting to play GTA IV online together without Hamachi or Tunngle, we cannot connect to each others games. When my friend is on a public server, I can join but he is removed from the server. When I am on a server, he simply cannot join.

This problem becomes ever more weird due to the fact this this issue is not affecting my connectivity with any other people. In other words, I can connect to anyone else though Hamachi, Tunngle and GTA with ease. My friend can also do the same with other people. It's just that when me and him try, it always fails.
Port forwarding did not solve the problem with either GTA IV, Hamachi or Tunngle.

The three applications, Hamachi, Tunngle and GTA IV Online, are the only times when this problem occurs, so far. There are many other online games that we can actually play together with no problem.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have been looking this issue up for ages, with no luck.
Thank you in advance.

I am currently having a very frustrating internet connectivity issue with my windows install. I cannot access anything on the internet, through any means, ports, or programs possible on my windows install. I can see all my lan stuff perfectly but cannot access anything outside of that.

I have multiple computers hooked up going through this one connection onto the internet without issue, so the problem is specific to this computer only. Well actually to this (Windows) operating system on this computer only. I can access everything fine on my Ubuntu install on the same computer, yet when i try and access anything on my windows it does not work.

I have tried rebooting my router, my cable modem, my computer and it still doesn't work. Anybody have a solution to this problem? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hey guys,

I have an issue specific to my USB 3.0 ports, and its interaction with my external HDD(E-HDD). Whenever I plug in my USB 3.0 capable E-HDD, the computer recognises the drive for a few seconds and then disconnects. This keeps happening while the the E-HDD is still plugged into the port, so it just keeps connecting and then disconnecting. There's hardly enough time to access the drive. The problem seems to be non-existent when I plug the device into the USB 2.0 port. My father has a similar E-HDD and has similar issues with this PC. I've looked high and low on the web for solutions. The ports are part of the motherboard and their drivers I assume come along with the Intel chipset drivers, which I updated but to no avail. I tried adjusting my power options; I disabled, 'USB selective suspend setting' which was also unsuccessful. I'm using an ASUS B-85 plus motherboard and my E-HDD is a WD My Passport 500GB. This E-HDD is accessible on my laptop via its 3.0 port. I think it is safe to say that the E-HDD is not the issue but rather the ports on the computer.

Please help!
