    losing connection xp pro

    Hello. I have lost connection with these two sites:
    http://www.gfxoasis.com/board/index.php?act=idx
    http://www.aero-soft.com/

    Everyone else seems to have no trouble connecting to them. I have disabled host file. I do not have windows firewall activated. I tried bypassing my router AND disabling Outpost firewall. To make matter worse, Emule now refuses to connect - even with no router and firewall. Does anyone know what the heck is going on? Thanks. :dead:

    I spoke with comcast. They were baffled as well as they can reach the sites. Their advice: go to some forum boards and ask around.

    "loosing" - lol I suppose I can't fix the title?

    Have you tried clearing the DNS cache?

    XP will try to use the DNS servers for a site it has cached even if that server has changed.
    In a command prompt type this then push enter: ipconfig/flushdns
    This has solved problems like this for me a few times.

    If that does not work then another idea is to rebuild the TCP/IP stack.
    Type or copy/paste this into the run box replacing C:\ if your drive is a different letter.
    netsh int ip reset C:\resetlog.txt

    After running this command then reboot and after rebooting you can look in the resetlog.txt file to see what (if anything) it fixed.

    I'll try the later as I see this:
    Ok I tried
    - all I saw was some warning that flashed in cmd prompt but could not read it.
