Internet keeps going out - Page 2

post #11 of 26
In your steam install try deleting these files:

1) ClientRegistry.blob
2) Steam.dll
3) AppUpdateStats.blob

These will cause your steam client to re-update itself. When I did this I was able to join games on steam(CS:S) without a problem. Also, if you are having network issues check port forwarding as some clients, and depending on your firewall/security policies, can cause severe connections issues.

Good luck!

It would look like you have some malware/spyware going on. The 169.xxx.xxx.xxx address you are receiving is because of some malware. I had that problem just a few weeks ago with a few computers in the office and had to rebuild the computers to get rid of it. Rebuilding is faster than going through and finding all of the malicious files.

Or, your computer is setup to get an IP address automatically (DHCP), but there is no DHCP server available.

Also, if you are having a problem clearing your DNS cache, go to a command prompt (Start-->Run-->CMD) and type ipconfig /flushdns

Thanks.

That would be my last resort. At my house we have the AT&T router and over here (Grandparents) we have a "SpeedStream" router. We use the same ISP though.

I would have to assume that you are on Cable or DSL, and you are connected to your modem through a router. In previous posts they stated, that resetting the modem and or router would probably work. Try that.

What kind of modem and router are you currently using, specifically the information for the router.

But looking on some other sites about this problem, Spybot Search & Destroy seems to have worked for several people.

I downloaded "Malware Sweeper" and it found a few programs and I downloaded Microsoft's Malware Tool just in case I'll reboot when it's done and see what happens Thanks for the help.

No problem on the help. Like Higgins said, a clean install always works the best.
