Not sure what your actual question is. Are you saying that your WinXp machine cannot connect to the wireless network at boot time, but then it is able to at some later time? Please start with the explicit issue you have, and we can go from there.

    Again, you need to explicitly state your problem in order for someone to render a diagnosis. What is it you cannot do--surt the web, use a particular application, etc.?

    Sorry, just started using FixYa, didn't see your first comment. Ok, so your internet is working, but you are getting errors connecting to your Postgresql database. Got it. Is your database hosted out on the web somewhere? What tool are you trying to connect to it with?

  • Greg Baumbach
    Greg Baumbach Oct 18, 2013

    FYI, a loopback is where you're running Postgresql on your local machine. Is that the case?

  • alex trep
    alex trep Oct 18, 2013

    Yes it's the case , The database is hosted on my machine at my home, on windows xp, the tool im trying to connect with it is Holdem Manager.

    OK. The it's definitely not your network. You run this on several machines, each with their own copy of Postgresql (and HoldEm Mgr), and only this box fails to work, correct?

    If you can post the exact wording of the error message too, that'd come in handy.

SOURCE: Repairing Damaged Winsock2

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the   boot order in the system BIOS. Check your system documentation 
  for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order. 
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the 
  options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft 
  Windows XP to run on your computer:

  To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

  To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

  To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
  3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. 

  do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the 
  Recovery Console, press R", (you do not want to load Recovery 
  Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP 
  installation using the Recovery Console, press R". 

  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing 
  Windows installations. 

  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and 
  press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, 
  read this Warning!! 

  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.  
  Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. 
  Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your 
  applications and settings will remain intact.
  Blaster worm warning: Do not immediately activate over the internet 
  when asked, enable the XP firewall
  [ ]
  before connecting to the internet. You can activate after the 
  firewall is enabled. Control Panel - Network Connections. Right click 
  the connection you use, Properties, and there is a check box on the 
  Advanced [ ] page.

  7. Reapply updates or service packs applied since initial Windows XP 
  installation. Please note that a Repair Install from the Original 
  install XP CD will remove SP1/SP2 and service packs will need to be 
  Service Pack 2
  An option I highly recommend is creating a Slipstreamed XP CD with SP2.
  Slipstreaming Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2)
  If the option to Repair Install is not available and you continue 
  with the install;you will delete your Windows folder and Documents 
  and Settings folder. All applications that place keys in the registry 
  will need to be re-installed. You should exit setup if the repair 
  option is not available and consider other options.

  Try the link below if the repair option is not available.

  Settings folders. All Applications that place keys in the registry

  You should exit setup if the repair option is not available and

  available, XP is usually not repairable and will require a Clean 
  If you still have the ability to access the Windows XP installation, 
  backup all important files not restorable from other sources before 
  attempting any recovery console trouble shooting attempts. 
  Possible Fix by reconfiguring boot.ini using Recovery Console.
  1.Boot with XP CD or 6 floppy boot disk set.
  2. Press R to load the Recovery Console.  
  3. Type bootcfg.  
  4. This should fix any boot.ini errors causing setup not to see the  
  XP OS install.  
  5. Try the repair install.

SOURCE: I recently rebooted my computer and the windows

have you tried to fully reset your router? you can turn off your modem and router, but some routers have built-in batteries so have a reset button on the back usually, more often then not you need a pin or something small to get to your router reset button, keep it pressed in for atleaset 5seconds, then leave your router to reset on its own for a few moments, then turn on your pc and try the internet again. I say this as you may just have an IP conflict.

I can not get signal wi-fi when i try TP-LINK TL-WN722N connected to PC...but when i try in notebook there is no problem.My notebook and PC have same OS,thanks

Usually ordinary desktops doesn't have the capability to connect to a WLAN Network because there won't be any WiFi antenna embedded on the motherboard.But in the case of laptops for the ease of use of network services wherever you go they come fitted with WiFi antenna and hence can connect to a wireless LAN network by the flip of a switch.Connecting to a Wireless LAN network has nothing to do with OS because it is a Hardware feature.Please don't forget to rate me if satisfied with my solution.Thanks for choosing Fixya.
