Thank you for the response.
All the connection properties are set to automatic, this is one of the first things I checked, I have also tried the command prompt and entered netsh winsock reset. I have run through the link you provided and checked to see if windsock2 was corrupted. I have all the files that I should have example MSAFD TCP/IP however I have some extra ones that are MSAFD NET BIOS (Device Net Bt TCpip6 ......but I think these are ok.
I'm at a complete loss, I have search the web and tried everything I could find. The internet was working up to this point. The laptop is about 7 years old so I may just need to think about upgrading unless you have any other suggestions.
Thanks again for the response
