Having problems with your Sony VAIO Notebook ?

Cannot connect to internet

\015 My Vaio cannot connect to the internet although it is able to connect to my home network and can browse and transfer files between other machines on the network. It just cant connect to the web. The browser times out. I tried resetting the winsock and clearing the arp cache but to no avail. I have Win XP SP2. The other machines on the network have no problems. Does anyone have any suggestions?\015

Answers :

WOW SP3 was the culprit!
\015\012Here are several links to read and decide whether to use SP3 or not. I personally created my own SP3 cd from an SP3 iso file and installed it on my systems. I have not encountered any problems .(knock on wood)
\015\012New and Enhanced Functionality in SP3:

\015\012"Black Hole" Router Detection: Now, this detection is on by default and is for detecting routers that are silently discarding packets. This feature is also available in Vista
\015\012NAP Network Access Protection: Policy enforcement that protects networks. It is now included Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, and Windows XP SP3. Available in RTM (release to manufacturers) version of Vista
\015\012Descriptive Security Options User Interface: More descriptive text, hopefully this will provide better explanations of options.
\015\012Enhanced Security for Admin. And Service policy entries: All new policy is present by default and after authentication cannot be removed.
\015\012Microsoft Kernel Mode Cryptographic Module: A new Kernel module that fixes a known problem with Microsoft's cryptographic application.
\015\012Windows Product Activation: Users can now complete the operating system installation without providing a product key. The keyless install option will allow installs of XP SP3 to proceed without using a product key for 30 days. This option is also available for Vista SP1 will not update your Internet Explorer 6 to Internet Explorer 7. But it will update either your IE 6 or your IE7. From what I've been able to tell so far, the same is true of Windows Media Player. The update does not install the current Media Player 11 as a part of the fixes or additions.
\015\012Per PC World:
\015\012"Since SP3 was supposed to be mostly a bug-fix/patch consolidation release, the unexpected speed boost comes as a nice bonus," Barth said. "In fact, XP SP3 is shaping up to be a 'must-have' update for the majority of users who are still running Redmond's not-so-latest and greatest desktop OS."
\015\012Good luck,

Sounds like your computer has not been assigned or has lost the IP. Try turning off all of your PCs. Then, power off your modem and router. After 10-15 seconds, turn on the equipment in the sequence:
1. modem (wait till all the lights come on)
2. router
3. computer
