Over the weekend, I lost my internet connection. It was up and running just smoothly and then all of a sudden, my browser (firefox or explorer) couldn't connect to the server. I did a system restore but it was unsucessful. I swapped my modem for a new one. I even bought a new ethernet card and installed it. After a few hours later with a Comcast Technician, they determined that it had something to do with a 'Winsock" such as a bad ip address starting with a 169. that the computer won't let go even after executing a 'netsh r w c' in DOS. I would appreciate it if anyone can help me fix this issue or correct the winsock issue. Thanks!
