    I installed NU2002 yesterday and lost my internet connection through one gateway, but works through another gateway. The problem is XP can't get a response from the gateway, which works fine (tried my neighbour's). I have tried swiching back and forth between the gateways, uninstalled the network card, disabled the connection and repaired.

    I connect to the internet through a LAN and can connect though a fast university gateway and a slow commercial gateway. I lost my university connection, and would like to get it back without reinstalling Windows XP.

    This problem has occurred before with EZCD Creator, where I ended up reinstalling Windows XP. I have uninstalled and system restored, but it did not help. Are there anyway to get it working without reinstalling?

    Don't know if you made up those IP addresses or not, but appear to be on the same subnet ID. If that is the case, you might take a look at the metric configuration. That is what forces your computer to use one gateway over another.

    A reinstall is rather drastic for this. It probably just a configuration setting that is messed up.

    It would be helpful to see you configurations. If you would to provide them in a private message instead of posting them, I may be able to help more.

    Thanks a lot, it was the metrics.

    I just learned a thing or two.
