Repair Internet/Network connection

Before the service call


Loss of connectivity is usually solved by the big three:

  • Restarting the computer
  • Unplugging the router
  • Unplugging the modem


Vista has a built in feature that you'll usually find on the Task bar.
It indicates current connections, but if you right click you can find Diagnose and repair.

Internet Connectivity

Free tool from MS


"The Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool checks your Internet router to see if it supports certain technologies. You can use this tool on a PC running either the Windows Vista or Windows XP operating system.

If you're planning to run Windows Vista, this tool can verify whether your existing Internet router supports advanced features, such as improved download speeds and face-to-face collaboration using Windows Meeting Space.

The tool is intended to be run from a home network behind a home Internet (NAT) router. Running this tool from behind a corporate firewall or on operating systems other than those specified above won't produce accurate results. This tool requires administrator privileges to run.



  • Basic Internet Connectivity Test
  • Network Address Translator Type
  • Traffic Congestion Test
  • TCP High Performance Test
  • UPnP Support Test
  • Multiple Simultaneous Connection States Test
