Could someone please help me. I have IE and the message "the attempt tom load URL failed" and in Netscape "Netscape was unable to create a network socket connection. There may be insuficient system resources or the network may be down". I have a Sagen ISDN adapter and this suddently happened. Coul someone please direct me to the right configuration. I've already been in the TCP/IP panel and I have the DNS's and the domain configured. On the "control panels" I can't find "MacPPP" or "PPP" or "remote acess". I need some detailed instructions on what to do and how to do it. Oh, and on my Outlook Express, whe I try to download mail I get the message "Mail could not be received this time. A network error has occured (-3269)".

Thank you very much

sounds as if your TCP/IP prefs have gotten corrupted, delete that prefs file, restart and reset your TCP/IP control panel settings

That is what I would do if I was using Windows. How do I do that in Mac 8.x? Step by step...? Please, it's urgent.

Thank you

Your TCP/IP prefs file can be found at:
"System Folder"/"Preferences"/"TCP/IP Preferences"

Write down your current TCP/IP settings somewhere.
Move the prefs file to the trash and empty.
Go back to the TCP/IP control panel and restore your settings.

I had a similar problem with my cable modem a few months ago, and doing this fixed it. It has not recurred since.

Good luck!

What's the name of the file? Is there only one file in that folder? How do I restore the TCP/IP settings? I'm a fresh rookie ok? And I'm doing this for a person over the phone so I really need the specific info (like "Mac 8.x for kids!"). Thank You

There is a whole slew of files in the Preferences folder, and all you want to delete is "TCP/IP Preferences." (it's a file, not a folder).

Restore the settings by typing them back into the boxes in the TCP/IP control panel after the "TCP/IP Preferences" file has been deleted. That's why you copy the settings down on a piece of paper.

hey diogopts, your from lisbon, maybe the mac runs under a non-english version, so the file do not have the same name!

in my french mac, it's "Préférences TCP/IP", but don't worry: this is the only file which is in the preferences folder with TCP/IP in his name.

(i don't think that removing the file and restoring the setings will solve anything, but i never had this problem... so try it)
