    This may not be the exactly appropriate group for my problem and I
    Please redirect, if necessary, otherwise I have the following problem:
    Inadvertently I lost my internet connecticity while sending an email with
    Vista's built-in. It worked flawlessly for several days (7?) and with no
    apparent fault of mine the connection was abruptly severed, leaving the last
    open box from the email and a sound when I clicked on anything in that box.
    When I shut down and started again, I received this message, amongst others:
    Component GUID: {7071ECA3-663B-4BC1-AIFA-B97F3B917C55}
    Component file: [C:\Windows\system32\connect.dll
    Error: (0x8007277B) <The error message could not be found>

    Additional info:
    Failed to detect Internet connectivity.

    The PC in question is a Dell Inspiron with WinVista and McAfee Security
    Center preinstalled. This message originates from my back-up PC with WinME.
    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Harry, go to microsoft.public.networking.wireless. I think they would know
    how to solve that kind of a problem. That would probably be your best bet.
    good luck

  4. Sleepy,

    I just heard reports of this problem for Windows Vista, but if the same
    error message, it is worth trying to run this procedure, but the commands are
    slightly different for Windows XP.

    PS: Make a point of resturação before performing the procedures below.

    - Click Start | Run | Type CMD
    - To open the command prompt, run the following command line:
    netsh int ip reset c: \ ip.log
    netsh winsock reset
    - Restart the computer.

    Thanks for the response. Actually, in my XP, I only have the 1394
    Network Connection in my Network Connections Folder. I don't have the
    local area connection icon. I'm not even getting any errors. Do you
    know how to handle this part?

  6. Hi,

    Now I understand your problem. Already solved a problem thus registering the
    dlls for the Windows network.

    In the command prompt, run the following command:
    regsvr32 Netshell.dll
    regsvr32 netcfgx.dll
    regsvr32 Netman.dll

    If the above procedure does not work you can try removing all network
    adapters in Device Manager and reinstall the driver for your network card.

    It helped!

    Thanks a lot, Felipe Martins! Your answer solved the problem!
    (Had the same thing, with Vista home premium on my new Dell computer). Still wonder what caused the problem, and how I can prevent that it happens again.
    But for now Im happy. Thanks again!
