  1. You are amazing! I had a problem connecting to my virgin mobile broadband service after installing Windows 7 Pro. I followed this advice by right clicking "command prompt" in the accessories folder and selecting "use as administrator". Then I typed in "netsh int ip reset" and restarted... and it worked.

    I didn't want to try the other methods suggested by other sites google brought up, such as uninstalling the WAN miniports and editing the registry. It was all too complex so I am completely grateful and surprised at your simple solution.

    Thanks Nonapeptide! You are my hero of the day.

  5. I am getting the same error trying to connect using my cell phone, it was working yesterday, but not today. The only think I have done is install a printer driver.

    Ran the above command, and rebooted, still getting the same error.

    But thanks for the suggestion anyway.

  9. VPN protects all your information by preventing any third parties to see your location or traffic's nature. When you are connected with a USA VPN IP, it keeps the ISPs from performing any deep packet inspection or inspecting your traffic's nature. John
