Microsoft's error messages do not always make sense. If you feel they should, then I must give you a few years to get more of them.
You'll likely have to hang and dial again.
I am using an XP PC and a dialup connection. I try to restore the connection when it becomes muddled, I click start, run, type cmd and press enter. At the
command prompt, type ipconfig /release and press enter. When I do this I get the following statement:
"NO OPERATION CAN BE PERFORMED ON LOCAL AREA CONNECTION WHILE IT HAS ITS MEDIA DISCONNECTED".
I dont understand, What is this Media that is disconnected? I tried it while connected to the Internet and when not connected. I get the same statement.
Can you help me as to what the statement as to Media refers to?
Thanks for your help,
