Default The unsolved internet problem :(

the unsolved internet problem.....

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey everyone,

I don't know if any of you guys know this but i have encountered the unsolved internet problem. Let me breifly explain.

I don't know how this happened but it must of when i updated my GeForce 4 MX 440 video card drivers (i hate this video card). Anyway the problem is simple yet impossible to solve. My internet runs perfectly...fast, smooth, i can download, i can webcam, i can use MSN but i CANNOT play games online nor can i run Team Speak. Jeeeez, i can't even play the games MSN MEssenger provides like solitaire showdown and minsweeper or tic tac toe . Internet works superbly fine but i can't see lists of servers on gamespy, or AMericas Army, or Battle Field: 1942/Vietnam. I don't understand.


----what i have tried?-----

I unplugged and replugged my cable modem many times...nothing
I exited my firewall (including the one in control panel/network connections)
I rebooted my machine
I uninstalled my NIC in device manager and let my PC reinstall it upon start up
I did a system restore to a previous date
I did a spyware scan with adaware 6.0 and spy bot search and destroy
I disabled my local LAN connection, then enabled it, and clicked repair
I reinstalled my modem USB driver
I called my ISP and they said my modem is working so well that they haven't seen a modem that fast for a while............????????????????????????????

I have lost my patience and so much time.

If anyone on this planet can help me I will put you in my book of geniuses.

By the way, Re-formatting the PC won't work either, or so i've heard...

Thanks for the time to read all that.. I await for the hero.

Take it easy everyone.

Zeeb-

I forgot to mention that i uninstalled my video card from device manager and restarted my PC. Then my pc reinstalled old video card drivers yet that would fix the problem. then i installed new drivers and still it wouldn't work.

After posting this thread last night, I ran a full system virus scan and it seems as thought it found 3 infections but they were all fixed.

Cool Re: The unsolved internet problem :(

thanks guys i fixed it but there are cases that ppl had where nothing worked. not even reformatting...can u believe it? heh i thought i had that but it seems as though, instead of restoring my pc to a week before the incident, i restored it to a month before and it fixed the problem yet i lost most of the stuff i downloaded within that month...better than a strange "unsolved" internet problem.

cheers

and MERRY CHRISTMAS
