Hi, Step 1: Make sure the network cable is connectedMake sure that the network cable is connected to the computer and to the modem. If your computer connects to a hub or to a router, make sure the cable that connects the hub or the router to the modem is connected. Step 2: Make sure that the network adapter is enabled

  1. Click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. Right-click the Local Area Connection icon. Click Enable if the option is available.
Step 3: Reset the modem
  1. Disconnect the cable that goes from the computer to the modem.
  2. Turn off the modem. If the modem does not have a power switch, disconnect the power supply from the modem.
  3. Wait two minutes.
  4. Turn on the modem, and then connect the cable that goes from the computer to the modem.
Step 4: Uninstall and then reinstall the modem and the drivers by using Device Manager
Before you follow these steps, you may have to download the latest driver for your network adapter from the hardware manufacturer.
  1. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. Click the Hardware tab, click Device Manager, and then locate Network Adapters.
  3. Expand Network Adapters, and then right-click the icon for your network adapter.
  4. Click Uninstall, and then click OK. In the dialog box that prompts you to remove the files that are associated with this device, click Yes.
  5. Restart the computer. Or, click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
  6. If Windows finds the device but does not recognize it, you must install the latest driver for your network adapter.
If you have a Realtek 8139 network adapter, updating the driver seems to resolve this issue. For more information, visit the following Realtek Web site: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/Microsoft provides third-party contact information to help you find technical support.

  2. Click Create a new connection under Network Tasks. Click Next when the wizard starts.
  3. Click Connect to the Internet, and then click Next.
  4. Click Set up my connection manually, and then click Next.
  5. Select Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password, and then click Next.
  6. Follow the remaining steps. Use the connection information from your Internet service provider (ISP) to complete the wizard.
Note You may have to use software that is supplied by your ISP to create the new connection.

    Step 6: Repair Winsock and TCP/IP


    1. Click Start, click Run, type netsh winsock reset, and then press ENTER.

    2. When the Command Prompt window flashes, restart the computer.

      Warning Programs that access or monitor the Internet, such as antivirus, firewall, or proxy clients, may be negatively affected when you run the netsh winsock resetcommand. If you have a program that no longer functions correctly after you use this resolution, reinstall the program to restore functionality.

    Step 7: Temporarily uninstall third-party firewalls
    Some third-party firewall software such as ZoneAlarm and Norton Personal Firewall may cause Internet connectivity issues on computers that are running Windows XP SP2. You may have to temporarily uninstall these programs to test the computer. Disabling these programs may not be sufficient for testing. Make sure that you have the CD or the installation files so that you can reinstall the programs later. If these programs are causing the problem, you may have to contact the program vendor if you need help with the settings for that program.

    Note You may want to verify that the Windows XP firewall is enabled before you remove the third-party firewall program.
    Step 8: Scan for and remove spyware and adware
    We recommend that you install Microsoft Windows Defender. To obtain Windows Defender or to obtain additional information about tools that you can use to remove unwanted software from your computer, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
    http://www.microsoft.com/protect/compute...
    Step 9: Clear the temporary Internet files

    1. Start Microsoft Internet Explorer.

    2. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.

    3. On the General tab, click Delete Files.

    4. Click OK in the Delete Files dialog box, and then click OK.

A connection to the remote computer could not be established, so the port used for this connection was closed. For further assistance, click More Info or search Help and Support Center for this error...


Sounds like your trying to connect to a remote computer. Steps to take and things to check.
1. Make sure the remote computer is on. 2. Make sure the remote computer is connected to the internet 3. Make sure the remote computer does not have a firewall blocking the port connection.
Some applications use certain ports on a computer to send/recieve data. If the computer has a firewall, like windows firewall or Kaspersky Internet Security, that port or application could be blocked, and that could cause the problem.
4. Make sure your computer does not have that application or port blocked.
If you can get to say www.google.com on both computers, then steps 1 and 2 are done. Look to a firewall or security application next. Beyond that I will need more information.
