    Thumbs up Clearing NetBT in WinXP Repair Network Connection

    I registered today to show my true appreciation for this great troubleshooting tip. It worked just as you said and I'm truly happy as it restored my system that I had thought I would have to reinstall WinXP again. I had remove my network cards and reinstall new updated drivers and that had not fix my problem. But as soon as I ran the fix and rebooted it all started to work again. Thanks a million!

    I registered, like some other people, just to say thanks. I have been frustrated for several days doing searches all over the internet. It has been the same lame responses by so called experts. Once I came accross this site and used the utility success. Thanks again.

    You say that DIDN'T work for you?? Well, I guess I won't try it then.
    I have also just registered because of this thread and will attempt to fix tonight when back home.

    Great forum here!

    EDIT: OK worked for me, too! Thanks!

    Clearing NetBT - the Steve Gibson remedy?

    I tried the Winsock Fix solution but unfortunately it didn't work in my case.

    However, I remembered that I had been looking through Steve Gibson's Freebies page and had tried out 'NoShare' for closing the NetBIOS TCP/IP vulnerabilities.

    I went back there and downloaded and used the "LetShare" application and 'Bingo' my LAN connection would now 'Repair' and my LAN worked normally.

    Thought I'd mention it here just in case you too had been messing with Gibson and forgotten about it!

    Edit

    Would this work under other circumstances? - I don't know.

    the winsockxpfix didnt work, this did

    Tried the free app: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html , several times to no avail. I too got the windows couldnt clear netbt error when using repair connection. the following worked
    flawlessly.
    1. Go to "start" & "run"
    2. Type "cmd" and press enter. A "DOS box" should come up
    3. type "netsh int ip reset c:\logfile.txt" and press enter. THis will change the settings and create a logfile on the root directory of your C drive.

    That's what this program does for you at the click of a button, along with some other things.

    Are you able to run with a wired connection for a week? Try to isolate if it's really your tcp stack...or just the wireless.

    There are several utilities out there which perform the same command...this tool just runs a netsh reset command....pretty much these steps...
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299357

    So this tool is resetting your TCP stack. I'd check system for malware/adware.

    Have you gone through the various wireless tips stickied at the top of the wireless forum?

    Try with disable your antivirus and do it.
    many times antivirus block network security.... else disable firewall in that antivirus that may work..

    All you do is run it...click the button. It restores your TCP/Winsock to default settings..just like the very first day your computer was powered on.

    I've run it on at least several hundred different PCs over the years...I have not had it cause a problem. You can run it many times over and over and over without harm...all it does it restore your TCP and winsock files/settings to original default values/files. Like the day you first powered up your computer.

    Any broadband tweaks you've done...will get wiped, since all goes back to default. So you'd have to reset your tweaks.

    Any static IP settings you may have put in there will have to be redone...since it all goes back to default (so your IP will be set to obtain auto). So you many need to jot those down.
