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.)

A: INTERNET PROTOCOL ISSUE ON WINDOWS 8.1

you dont need to write in capitals - its considered shouting

Make sure you have the latest driver on the adapter

make and model of the PC
how do you connect to the router by cable or wireless

If the IP is changing then you are possibly connecting to a different network
OR your lease time is very short

lets see an ipconfig /all

ipconfig /all

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

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 the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply
Note: you will see entries named Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface: we dont need to see that information - JUST the information above those entries

For Windows 8 or Windows 10
To open a Cmd Prompt or an Administrator Cmd prompt from the Desktop.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/open-an-elevated-command-prompt-in-windows-8/
Use Windows + X Keys together and choose Command Prompt (Admin) from the list.​Or Right click on the windows icon - bottom left hand side - A menu appears - choose Command Prompt (Admin)[/indent]

For windows version, XP, Vista, W7
Hold the Windows key and press R
Now type CMD
Now 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 into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.

After booting up my toshiba laptop with a nice new upgrade to XP Pro from XP Home, my computer lags when it's trying to load the programs it should be loading at start up (Norton, printer driver, firewall, etc).Half the time, it'll lag for 2 minutes then start all programs and run as normal.

Hi,
I have a strange problem with my uncles desktop pc. That pc has to be always on for video recording but once in a while Windows will automatically reboot and i just can't exactly find out why.
But why i did found out is that he's always getting 3 error messages (in the Windows event viewer) about 20 min prior to the unplanned reboot. 
These are the error message in the event viewer:
1) The following fatal alert was generated: 10. The internal error state is 1203 --> Schannel ID3688 --> time: 19:00
2) The same as above on the exact same time with same event
3) RDP protocol component X.224 detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client --> TermDD ID50 --> Time: 19:48 (about 25 min prior to the reboot)
Who can help me out here. This is driving me crazy. Sometimes we miss days of recording, while we aren't using that PC for other things.
Thanks in advance!

I did quite a bit of online research prior to asking my own question, but none of  the solutions I've found online really pertain to the issue we're experiencing.  
We have 2 Windows 7 Pro PCs in the office.  They are accessed via RDP from within the same network/location.  The systems that are accessing these 2 PCs are an XP Pro machine and a Mac.  The clients stay connected for randomly lengths of time
(no longer than 1 hour) before the session goes black and disconnects them randomly.  When the disconnect occurs, it's not due to inactivity.  The user has to wait several minutes before they are able to reconnect.  
On the Windows 7 PCs, Event Viewer gives:
Event ID: 50  The RDP protocol component X.224 detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client.
Event ID: 56  The Terminal Server security layer detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client. 
I've seen suggestions of checking registry keys and a lot of suggestions regarding Windows Server and Terminal Server, but they don't apply to our situation.  Please let me know if more information is required.  Thank you!

A:The RDP protocol component X.224 detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client.

Hi,

 

Do you enable the
IEEE 802.1x authentication?

 

Regarding the issue, I suggest updating the network adapter driver manually on Windows 7 PCs. Also update the router's driver and firmware.

 

If the issue persists, you could disable the TCP Offload. To do this,

 

a.      
Run the following commands on both the client and the server to disable NIC offloading.

 

netsh int tcp set global chimney=disabled

netsh int tcp set global rss=disabled

 

b.     
Modify the following registry key to disable netDMA on the client and the server.

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\EnableTCPA

 

Note: If this registry entry does not exist, right-click Parameters, point to New, click DWORD Value, type EnableTCPA, and then press ENTER.

 

Value: 0

 

You can also refer to the following KB to troubleshoot the issue. Hope it helps.

Hello, there is quite a number of threads on this topic, and some suggested approaches. The problem appears to arise with build 10586 (the 'November upgrade').

It could also help if you complete your system specs (esp what type of wifi card you have e.g.).
(If unsure how to do that there is a Tutorial - see link above)
Do you also have this problem with an ethernet connection?

This refers to the build change and suggests a somewhat radical command:

A quick scan of these threads suggests:

I am trying to set up my Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). I am not sure of the IP address for my computer (one of four connected to broadband through a lan in my office). I forgot to note it down when reformatting my hard disk recently. But I have a good idea of what it might be since I have the IP addresses of the other three computers. Unfortunately I am not in a position to contact the Service Provider and no one here seems to have the list of numbers.
What I want to know is this?
Are the Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Server addresses the same for all four computers? Is it only the IP addresss that is different? It will be easier for my (by trial and error) to hit on the right IP Address if that is the only address I have to worry about.

One thing I do remember reading last year, when IPv6 Day was held, was that it wouldn't have much impact on home users until the majority of ISP's enabled the new protocol on their servers. I assume that will cost money so they'll only do it when IPv4 addresses are closer to exhaustion.

If you are not running a VPN connection IPSEC is not needed. If not you can then disable the protocol to stop the error from occurring.
For your second problem I had not a clue so did some searching and I found:

Run exctrlst.exe (Extensible Counter Listing Tool) from the resource kit (see the link below for download) and disable the counter if you don't use it.
As per Microsoft: "The extensible counter list utility (EXCTRLST.EXE) is used to obtain information about the extensible performance counter dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) on a computer running Windows NT/Windows 2000. This utility lists the applications, drivers, and services that are registered to provide performance data through the performance registry. You can use this utility for finding information and for troubleshooting"

According to a user: "To fix this error, I had previously used the EXCTRLST.EXE utility and disabled the performance counters.

Hey everyone, i'm new to this forum due to the problems i'm having with vista. I recently purchased an HP laptop that runs on windows vista. Currently we have 5 computers in our house, they all run on windows XP. We have a Belkin wired and wireless router and a surfboard SB4100 cable modem. Time warner is our internet provider but we have AOL through roadrunner and we are billed from AOL. All our computers that run on XP work fine with no connection problems. The vista computer will not connect to the internet. It connects to the router fine but cannot get an internet connection. I took the laptop to a friends house and there everything works fine and it gets and internet connection so theres nothing wrong with the laptop. I have called AOL, Timewarner, and HP trying to get some answers. after being run in circles by all of them i finally got someone through AOL that told me that because we are billed by AOL they only allow a certain protocol or something through our internet connection. He said that vista does not work with that protocol and the only way that the computer will ever connect to the internet at our house is to cancel the AOL service and get roadrunner from timewarner which uses a different protocol(TCP or something like that) I am wondering if this is true or if there is a work around for this.

I am using a wireless linksys wrt160n router with a linksys AE1000 usb adapter on windows 7. Up until now I have had no problems. A few days ago, I came home to find that we had had a blackout. I had no connection and could not seem to fix it.
Up until that time, I've always used my network connection 4 for internet access but no matter what I did to I couldn't get a connection. So I thought if I disabled this connection and then enabled it that somehow it would reset itself and I would have a connection. Unfortunately when I disabled it there was no option for enabling it because it disappeared. I currently am using network connection 6, but my internet is at a crawling speed.

I searched on how to reinstall network connections 4 and found this page http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Change-TCP-IP-settings
At the bottom is says to "To install IPv4, run Command Prompt as an administrator, type netsh interface ipv4 install, and then press Enter." I did so successfully and restarted my computer like it said to after inputting the command. But when I brought up my network connections, there was no network connection 4.

I even went to the command prompt and typed ipconfig /all and the IPv4 entries are not there like it used to.
Any help would be appreciated.

TCP Protocol Controls Routers

POSTED: 4:47 p.m. EDT April 20, 2004

A flaw that could potentially disable large parts of the Internet has sent security experts and governments scambling for a cure, technology Web sites and other sources reported Tuesday.

The problem is with the Transmission Control Protocol, which lets servers that send out information and routers, which decide how it is transmitted, to work together.

Britain's National Infrastructure Security Coordination Center said it could be a critical problem. The advisory says that flaw could be exploited if long TCP connections are shut down unexpectedly.

These are known as "reset attacks," according to News.com. A security researcher named Paul Watson discovered the problem.

An expert described the problem as affecting the glue that holds the Internet together.

Wired.com reported that there has been a secretive effort over the last few months to fix the problem.

Previously, it was thought that there was only about a 1 in 4 billion chance of someone guessing the information needed to cause a reset; Watson showed that it can be guessed within four attempts.

Tuesday's announcement came just two days before Watson is scheduled to present details of his work at an Internet security conference in Vancouver.

Watson predicted hackers would understand how to launch attacks "within five minutes of walking out of that meetin... Read more

A:Protocol Of Internet Backbone Vulnerable To Hacks

How Internet Infrastructure Works
Content provided by HowStuffWorks.com

One of the greatest things about the Internet is that nobody really owns it. It is a global collection of networks, both big and small. These networks connect together in many different ways to form the single entity that we know as the Internet. In fact, the very name comes from this idea of interconnected networks.

Since its beginning in 1969, the Internet has grown from four host computer systems to tens of millions. However, just because nobody owns the Internet, it doesn't mean it is not monitored and maintained in different ways. The Internet Society, a non-profit group established in 1992, oversees the formation of the policies and protocols that define how we use and interact with the Internet.

In this article, you will learn about the basic underlying structure of the Internet. You will learn about domain name servers, network access points and backbones. But first you will learn about how your computer connects to others.

A Hierarchy of Networks

Every computer that is connected to the Internet is part of a network, even the one in your home. For example, you may use a modem and dial a local number to connect to an internet service provider. Or you may use a cable modem or DSL connection. At work, you may be part of a local area network, but you most likely still connect to the Internet using an ISP that your company has contracted with. When you connect to your ISP, you become part ... Read more

Sate of connection = red 'x' over network tray icon.

Can't connect through wireless or wired connection. If I try automatic troubleshooting, it says it couldn't identify the problem. I've tried Googling for a while, and have tried Winsock/Winsock2 reg key deletes, several netsh cmd resets, uninstalled and reinstalled hardware/routers (through software, not physically).

In device manager, I have the Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller and Realtek RTL8191SE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter both running (supposedly). Initially, they both had caution symbols on them, but i uninstalled/reinstalled, and now they are clear of symbols. In "IPConfig", the only thing that appears are 2 VMware Network Adapters (they are supposed to be there) and a "Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface" - not sure what that is.

Something else is definitely a major problem: When I open up "System Information", then navigate through Components>Network>Protocol, the entire list, which should have 10 items, is empty.

Any ideas?

Edit: This laptop's networking has been fine for the past 18 months I've had it. I usually leave it on, but turn it off a couple times a week. Yesterday, I turned it off and had it off for about 10-12 hours. When I turned it back on, the connection was not working and the above issues arose.

Hiya

Use the SMTP Internet Protocol Restriction and Accept/Deny List Configuration to programmatically set or view Internet Protocol (IP) restrictions on an SMTP virtual server and to add or remove IP addresses from your global accept or deny lists. Microsoft Exchange 2003 provides connection and relay control for its Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) virtual servers. Additionally, Exchange 2003 provides connection filtering that allows you to configure IP addresses from which you want to accept connections or from which you want to always deny connections. These settings are configured in global accept and deny lists in Connection Filtering. An administrator can use these controls to limit the computers that can connect to a virtual server or that can relay e-mail to outside the Exchange organization.

Note This tool can be used against Exchange 2000 servers but the global accept and deny list configuration is only applicable to Exchange 2003 servers. If Active Directory has been updated with the Exchange 2003 schema then the tool can be used to configure entries on the global accept and deny lists, but this configuration is only available on Exchange 2003 servers.
System Requirements
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Service Pack 3, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP

If I set up QoS on my main router, does the QoS protocol have to be enabled on every computer on the network?

I think I have set "limited reservable bandwidth" to 0% in each windows xp computer. I had thought by doing this it would free up bandwidth since i was not using qos. BUt now that I want to set it up on my router, must this be set back to its default 20%?

Does anybody know how and where to get a 64-DLC driver with an API ? Windows 2008 R2 does not support 32 drivers any longer and MS has retired it for 64-bit Windows.  

A:DLC protocol is no longer available for 64-bit windows, where to get it ???

DLC protocol is provided as is and is intended to be used only with Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 family operating systems. The DLC protocol can be used on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and Microsoft Windows Vista if you choose to install the unsigned
version.For Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7, you may try installing DLC in Windows XP compatibility mode for a test, but I can't guarantee whether it works.

Unable to open Microsoft Office documents(excel,word) in Internet Explorer when we enforce strict TLS 1.2 protocol (Disabling SSL v2,SSL v3,TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1)on the webserver. We tested by removing strict TLS 1.2 and IE is able to open the document fine.

Internet Explorer have any restrictions when TLS 1.2 is strictly enabled ?

I installed the new Firefox .9 release yesterday and it seems to have done something messy to my HTTP protocols when using AOL Instant Messenger. I click on a url/link in an AIM window and receive this pop-up and a beep:

Unknown Handler
Unable to find an application to handle the protocol "http" of the hyperlink you selected.

Please type in the path of the application to handle this URL or click the Browse button.
(Then a slot to find the path and a Browse button)

A box and "set as default application below it.


I browse to find my Firefox .exe and it just beeps again and nothing happens. I tried downgrading to Firefox .8 and making IE my default browser and the same thing happened. Links work via other sources like IRC and stuff. I've reinstalled Firefox and AIM and all, but can't get this worked out.

Anyway to correct my protocols so I can use HTTP links via AIM windows?

I went to Folder Options "File Types" and found this:

(NONE) URL: http protocol

But it does not allow me to change the program that utilizes it. The change button is not available.

On second note... I put the path to firefox in the advanced tab in the application box but it still did nothing to fix the problem.

Hello,
I'd like to change the default protocol association for the current user . I do not have admin rights. From the
control panel, set associations, i can change the file associations, but not the protocol associations (there is no browse button).
My first question is, where is this association stored in the registry ? In the control panel, it shows http is
associated with IE (and indeed IE is the one that is launched when i click on a HTTP URL), but HKCR/http/shell/open/command (default) does not point to ie. Neither does HKCU/SOFTWARE/classes/http/shell/open/command
The second question would then be how to change it ?

My ISP is heavily caching sites and shaping ports to save on international bandwidth (i am not in the US)

The problem is especially bad with the Windows Store and II mostly get "We weren't able to connect to the store. This might have happened because of a server problem or the network connection timed out. Please wait and few minutes and try again".

I am sometimes able to connect ot the windows store so the problem is on my ISP side. I tried using a tool called fiddler but it only applies to browsers requests as can't catch the details of the windows store traffic
I need to lodge a ticket with my ISP. Can someone provide me with the following

2. What protocol (HTTP) and what port does it use?

I am a Desktop support tech for a big company in Portland, OR. Along with desktops, I also assist in managing some of the network gear; including Cisco switches. Unfortunately not all the switches are SSH capable. To keep track of the switches, I have a website saved that contains a bunch of "ssh:ipaddresshere" and "telnet://ipaddresshere" links. These links go to the various switches that I help maintain. Due to network policy, I am unable to use any other browser other than IE.
(I know, suck right )

So if I need to access a switch, I bring up that website and click on the link...it opens up "kitty.exe" and connects using the correct protocol...tadaa! I have figured out how to enable those protocol links in IE8 for Windows 7 x86 and Windows XP; thanks to an earlier post on this forum. I will be happy to share my results and what I have learned on how to do this for Windows 7 x86 as well as XP. *Yes still using IE8*
It involves a couple registry settings and copying kitty.exe to your root drive. ( Default C:\ )

I have a Windows 7 x64 client that I work with on occasion and would like to use those links. At this time, whenever I click on a "telnet://" link it just says "unable to open" When I click on "ssh:" links they open fine using the kitty.exe client (born from Putty). Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

I've read in other forums and posts here that I need to do the same thing for x86 to WoW6432Node, b... Read more

Does anyone know of anyway to fix this? I already did Tools>Options>Network>and clicked all of the protocols there to receive streaming media. If anyone knows how to fix this it would be appreciated. Thanks

A:MMS Protocol not supported with Windows Media Player.

Which Windows Media Player version do you use?


Quote:




MMS is a proprietary application-layer protocol that was developed for earlier versions of Windows Media Services. You can use MMS to stream content to computers running Windows Media Player for Windows? XP or earlier. You can implement MMS through the WMS MMS Server Control Protocol plug-in in Windows Media Services Administrator. This plug-in is enabled by default.

Windows couldn't automatically bind the ip protocol stack to the network adapter
Gigabyte GA-P43T-ES3G, Windows 7, Realtek RTL8111D chip (10/100/1000 Mbit) internal LAN. Ok I have been getting this error after rebooting. My network Icon has big red X. I can right click and run the troubleshooter as an administrator and it fixes it and tells me that "Windows couldn't automatically bind the ip protocol stack to the network adapter" it also says it might be a driver problem. I have uninstalled the driver and tried the one from Gigabyte and later ones but still the same thing. The one I have right now is from this year. I don't know when it started because my wife uses this one now and I can't get on it much. (She thinks everything can be fixed in five seconds, Ha,Ha). I have googled it but most have to do with Win 10. She doesn't want to learn how to run the trouble shooter so I need to try to fix it. It seemed to have fixed it self earlier this year after a windows update but now its back again.
