SYMPTOMS
When you attempt to verify your network configuration by using the TCP/IP Ping.exe command-line utility (Ping Localhost or Ping 127.0.0.1), you may receive the following command-line error message:

PING: transmit failed, error code 10091
You may not be able to connect to (ping) another local computer or another computer on the local network or on the Internet.
CAUSE
This issue can occur if an incorrect Windows Sockets dynamic link library (DLL) file is in the current path or there is more than one simultaneous Windows Sockets implementation. If there is more than one Winsock.dll file on your computer, be sure the first one in the path is appropriate for the network subsystem currently loaded.

This issue can also occur if the Windows Sockets implementation is not currently installed or is configured incorrectly.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, remove and then reinstall your networking components. To do this, follow these steps.

NOTE: You must have your Microsoft Windows CD as well as driver disks for the dial-up adapter (if present) and the network adapter (if present) to complete these steps.
