Question about Computers & Internet
Ok so here's what I am dealing with. 1st off, my Network Connnections normally shows ''Local Area Connection'' and ''Local Area Connection 2'' along with 1394. About a week or so ago, I plugged in a Linksys Wireless-B USB adapter in an experiment to see what would happen with 3 bridged connections using all but the 1394 (of course). Would I get faster load times... or be able to handle more network applications? Well the answer was no. Nothing noticably beneficial happened so I deleted the Network Bridge. Upon doing so, the icon for ''Local Area Connection'' disappeared however my connection was still using it and without problems. Then, ''Local Area Connection 2'' would not disable while giving me a message that referred to the possibility that there were some plug and play options it was not compatible with. After rebooting I was able to disable ''Local Area Connection 2'', but still no ''Local Area Connection''. I then unplugged ''Local Area Connection'' physically and plugged that ethernet cable into ''Local Area Connection 2'' and recieved the ''Local Area Connection 2'' is unplugged message and could not get it to function even after enabling it and restarting my modem and router. So I returned the ethernet cable to ''Local Area Connection'' and my internet was back on and running fine, though, still no icon in network connections. So I went into my device manager, where again ''Local Area Connection'' did not exist for me to check properties or make any changes, nor was there any ! or X in the list. Being unable to uninstall that lan I was left with one option, reinstall the drivers. Did that and still no ''Local Area Connection''.
Windows XP SP3, the ethernet controllers are on my ASUS P5N32-E SLI Plus with Nvidia 650i with nForce 570. I am using a D-link WBR-2310 router and a motorolla modem.
Problem number 2 I believe is unrelated. I have just put up a website at www.banditcamp.com/Berzerkerz and have been accessing the site with no problem ALL day making changes to numerous pages using Filezilla FTP client, going back n forth from page to page .. refreshing pages over n over. I sent the link to my friend and gaming teammate of 5 years and gave him his login because he helped me build the site 3 years ago on our old domain/host. He was unable to login with his login info nor was I and once I tried his, I immediately tried mine to see if maybe there was a server crash or some downtime as occasionally happens with websites, I could not login either. So I went to the url posted above and could not connect, nor could my friend, so I went friend number 2, who owns the space and asked him about it. He was able to connect without a problem. I then sent the link to yet another buddy of mine and he ALSO was able to access the site. This happened at about 3 or 4 pm this afternoon and to this moment, I still cannot access my own website through FTP or otherwise. This is very frustrating. Both of us have deleted all cookies and temp internet files and still no luck. Please help with any ideas you may have on both counts.
XP tags "Local Area Connection #" with your Network Adapter. If you have a built-in LAN, it will take Local Area Conn 1" and when you disabled it and plugged in a new network adapter, it will be named Local Area Conn 2 and so on in that pattern. Your Local Area Connection will only be back when you plug the original Network adapter that XP tagged as Local Area Connection. It is not "variable" where you can choose how to name it.
