Can SP2 effect internet connection?I cant connect?

Hello all,

Ever since insatlling SP2 I have been having trouble getting on line occasionaly. It has happened around 1800 hours until about 2000 for the last 2 nights. I get a bubble stating something like I do not have enough connection speed to access the internet and I should contact my local ISP. I never had a problem prior to my installation of SP2.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

You guys and Gals are the best...

Thanks,

Dan

SP2 has added some features to the Network Connection Properties.

If you view Local Area Connection 2 Properties you will note an additional item above the OK button:
"Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity".

This is turned on by default after SP2 is installed.

You can uncheck this and it will not bother you again.

Prior to SP2 your Internet connection could also be periodically interrupted but there was no sucu warning messages.

I use a netgear 314 router and as long as I use 10/100 line I have no problem and it required no changes to my system, sadly I can't use my netgear HA501 wireless card to connect to the internet anymore. I've tried shutting down all firewall stuff in sp2 and even unistall and reinstall etc. Netgear.com has posted a please do not contact us notice regarding sp2 update or any form of support. Luck to ya Happy
O yes,,I can also use the net by skipping the router and losing the protection I get with the router.
