For the past three days, i havent been able to browse the internet from my laptop over my wireless connection to the Access Point. The signal strength and every thing seemed perfect and strong. First i thought that the wireless settings must have gone kaput. I went onto reset it, but it brought no changes. Then, i tried switching off the access point and back on. That didnt help either.
The situation was that all this was happening just with my laptop; all other computers on the network that have wired connection run perfectly and internet and all are working. Then i realised that the problem was at my end. Upon searching through a couple of forums, i found this awesomely small hint that saved me a lot of trouble. So, here i go logging it in.
Tested and working for Windows XP
>CMD – For the command prompt
>netsh winsock reset catalog – To reset the winsock
>netsh int ip reset reset.log – To reset the TCP/IP stack
Reboot your machines for the effects to take place.
This helped me out and it worked well
