    This is the problem , i can be online for hrs no problems.Then i log off and come back later and connect ok but all i get is "The page cannot be displayed".Its the same with email ,errors messages.I connect ok but theres no bytes sent or recieved it just sits there doing nothing.The only way i can get back online again is if i reeboot my puter.Im using Home XP with an USB ADSL modem.All the drivers r up to date so im thinking it might be an XP problem ?? Has anyone else had this ?

    to me that seems like a problem with your computer not being sent an IP address, is your DSL static or dynamic IP? If it is dynamic next time this happens try going to your command prompt, then type in ipconfig /release and then after that is done doa ipconfig /renew and see if that works to get your connection back.

    It might just be me, but i've noticed quite a few people having problems with USB DSL modems in XP under various network boards, if possible you might try seeing if you cna switch to a ethernet DSL modem over USB

    Yes, I am having the same kind of problem

    I think my provider is changing my IP after 24h connected

    Then, if I disconnect and reconnect, the connection is accepted, but It cannot see anything

    I have to reboot too !

    "The operation failed as no adaptor is in the state permissable for this operation"
    Any ideas ?

    Same prob here. But I have a cable modem and connected to a 10/100 card. Offten times while downloading something or surfing for a while, I will loose the connection. Almost like as if I ran out of internet memory of some sort. Could it be that ISPs are limmiting data on a per session? Also, any form of streamming media will not work properly. Everything worked fine with Win98. (pre upgrade) BTW... The ipconfig / release ... Ipconfig / renew did not help

    hmmm perhaps!

    Today i was messing with the admin settings under services and disabled a bunch of inet type things, so ill see what happens.

    Id already turned off the firewall under another settings but i see it was still active under this so i turned it off. and a bunch of other things that seemed like it might be contributing.

    XP pro build 2600
    ethernet DSL modem.
    Zone alarm-NO its not this, my friend has the SAME problem and doesnt use zonealarm.

    I had the same problem when i used win 98 and me.
    All I had to do was update my drivers for the hardware. It happened when I used ISDN and with ADSl, so I hope it will help. By the way great forum and thanx for all the help. Been surfing here a lot looking for help before posting questions.

    Hi Guys,

    I have a similar problem and so do all my friends running XP. I'm running XP Pro 2600 with cable via a 10/100 NIC. I don't quite know why, but XP seems to refuse to recognise modems if they are powered after booting! If I turn the modem on first, it works everytime otherwise the browser cannot see the connection even though I can be receiving data via Symantec's live update and my firewall still reports attacks. There must be a solution but nobody seems to where to start. I've given up and just put the modem on first
