limited or no connectivity

Disclaimer : Computer Related

I dont know how many of you have had this problem? Yesterday i had this problem in home laptop. I could'nt connect to my wireless router. It kept giving me this error.At first i thought it could be the problem with the router. What happens at times is, as we dont turn off our router for days together, it would require a simple restart. I tried that but in vein.

Then i saw that, this message (limited or no connectivity) i was recieving when my system was trying populate it ipaddress, i mean thru DHCP. So now i thought DHCP server in the router was not working properly.

So i assigned a static Ip in the subnet as that of my router and DNS as my router and tried again, this time it was wierd, i was able to ping my router but nothing beyond it. So this eliminated the problem with my wireless card.

I tried repairing the network connection, tried restarting the laptop but all measures failed. Was wondering if i had re install my OS, that would be tedious.

So when i googled from my friends system, i found that, the culprit could be some spyware. My firewall program (ZONE ALARM) had run a scheduled check previous night and had found handfull of spywares, and some sites said, while removing the spywares some of them corrupt the TCP/IP stack.

So, that could be a posibility and luckily i found this tool

I must say that this is a must have tool! work fine and if you are worried that, its altering ur registry you can also, take a snap shot of ur registry with this, in case u want to revert back.

Going to cinema

For people abroad it is a comman excuse for seeing a movie online is that, the movie has not released in a theater near by. So? you download a movie and watch it?? No thats not the way! i am not being a saint here and not that i have not done that. Yes! i used to do but these days i feel it is not a very good thing to do...

Why do some sites even do it... my point here is atleast dont upload the movie for atleast 30 - 45 days. Recently i noticed that some movies were online almost the very next day... that is not fair at all!

Point number one..this is not fair and point number two... the movie loses its quality and why should we do that? and for people who make it a point to watch movies online it is nothing less to stealing. Try to refrain from doing that!

anyways saw munnabhai in the big screen yesterday and it is a ok kind of movie, yes it has lived upto the expectations to some extent. My verdict is go watch it!
ghandhi-diri ... haan lage raho munnabhai
