My internet connection has stopped working. This is true in both my email client and in any browser that I open. It appears the browser, or other program, sends a request to connect to a specific server, and then does not get a connection to the server back. The browser times out while waiting for the connection. Outlook does not time out. It just sits.
Can anyone suggest things to check, or to try, to resolve this? It was working fine and next day wouldn't work. BTW, I am running Windows XP – SP2 and numerous security and other updates.
