I am trying to help out a friend who can no longer access the Internet and
is 12 time zones away.
He is accessing the Internet via cable modem connected to a NIC in his
He is running McAfee VirusScan PRO including its firewall.
The sent packets in Local Area Connection are increasing * very * rapidly
while received are going up very slowly if at all.
He is unable to ping any sites.
He has tried restoring from a System State backup from last week which he
thinks is before this problem started but the restore has not helped.
We both thank you for any assistance.
