|<< Internet Connection Stalled >>|
<< SUSPECT "Socket Error 10055, No Buffer Space Available" >>
(1) Many (many?) months ago, my browser would stop responding for no obvious reason.
Usually, this occured after my computer had been on for an extended period.
However, the period could be just a few days or weeks.
(2) The ONLY fix was to reboot my computer.
(3) I have other computers on my home network which appear to be working fine, when mine isn't. My computer has a direct ethernet connection into the ADSL modem, while the others share a wireless connection.
(4) I have recently discovered another clue to the likely cause of the problem. I use Second Copy to backup my hard drives locally AND across my home network. Every now and then, the Second Copy log file indicates that the network copy could not be completed, or that the log email could not be sent. The reason reported is "Socket Error 10055, No Buffer Space Available". When this occurs the internet browser is also not responding.
(5) Another thread indicated that it MIGHT be that the error is caused by too many tcp/ip connections & frequently is due to using a P2P program and there is no cure to that except cut the amount of connections, that is don't use P2P.
(6) I unistalled all my P2P programs. This did not fix the problem.
(7) Is there a way to INCREASE the number of allowed tcp/ip connections (or the like) ?
This should give me some extra breathing space between reboots of my system.
Thanks in advance
