Losing internet - one site or all?

Q: Losing internet - one site or all?

I have Vista and DSL. I've had times where I'll go to a site and it will seem like the site is hanging. Then the network indicator (in the system tray) will turn to a "!".

My main question is, is it possible that something is wrong with one site, and Vista is "fooled" into thinking something is wrong with the whole internet connection??

Or is Vista always going to be accurate about losing the connection?

It doesn't happen often. Every few weeks I might suddenly see the globe disappear and there is just the two computers, but then the globe will return after a minute. However today I had to reboot the DSL modem and it was okay.

Preferred Solution: Losing internet - one site or all?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How to force IE 11 to ask for saving credentials again for just one web site, after having accidentally sellect not to remember password for that particular site. Please, take into account that:


- I'm totally aware that storing credentials is not a good security practice, but in my particular case this is what I need to do.

- I know that reseting IE or similar approachs will do the job, but doing that I'll lost more tan 70 web sites credentials. I need a solution not involving loose all the web credentials stored.
- I also know that there is way to do the trick "lying" to IE using a modified but similar username, but this only works in some web sites, depending on the kind of login mechanism used. In my particulare case this trick also does not work.
- I also know that there was a registry hack for this particular problem, but this does not work with IE last versions.


Any help would be very apreciated.

I have tried most of the posts on the internet to fix this problem--this is under IE6--"Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later." The problem just suddenly appeared. I'm running a Dell Inspiron B130 laptop with Win XP Home, Service Pack 3 installed, 1 gb ram and a 40 gb HDD. Had McAffee Internet Security Suite preinstalled but removed it via REVO Uninstaller and have only Windows firewall enabled and NO anti-virus. I did try downloading with Windows firewall disbaled and still no success. I can navigate to a site like Google Chrome download page but then when I click on the download button, the error message appears. Also can't download Microsoft or Windows updates from either site, although, again, I can get through the "checking" phase. I've run Malwarebytes, A-Squared, and IObit 360 and removed about 13 traces of malware ranging from low risk to high risk, defragged and cleaned the reg, all to no avail. I originally had IE7 installed, read about rolling back to IE6 and doing the typical repair sequences, again to no avail. Supposedly IE8 fixes this, but I can't download it, although I did try the stand-alone installer of 15 MB without checking the "get updates" box. It loaded and installed and shows up as IE8 but still had the same problems. Then did a system restore back to before the IE8 install, rolled back to IE6 again... Read more

It's kinda weird because I can't browse the internet after 1-2 hours after windows startup but I can ping any sites using the command prompt, play any online games, download using my utorrent and update my antivirus. This problem occur last Wednesday I think. Tried to disable then enable again in the network connection but didn't work. The only way to browse again is to restart which is crazy.

Tried:
1) Reinstalling my network driver.
2) Scan for viruses and spywares.
3) Update using windows update
4) Reinstall OS then update again using windows update

Now I reinstall again my OS but didn't update using windows update yet(disabled it). I think the update this month is the culprit but I'm not pretty sure. Right now I don't have any problem with the internet. Anyone here can help me figure out what's the problem?

2GB DDR2 800 RAM

While during the downloads it usually just stops midway and tells me my connection has been lost. Then I have to redu everything and hope this time will be different.

Usually kicks off when I am almost finished paying a bill or ordering something or about ready to send and email etc. Frustrating. I have to go to sleep mode for a while and sign in again and sometimes twice to get back on which is almost instantanious. I am on a Thinkpad T23 which is my back up.

Further to my previous post re the same problem I have delved a bit deeper and would like any opinions as to a possible cause.
What happens is I will be surfing the net then for no apparent reasons my connection goes, well let's say i am unable to open new webpages.
When this happened last night, after numerous router reboots to get net back, I observed the following.

Opening network connections showed a picture of a PC , a white tick in a green box with the comment Broadband Connection Disconnected WAN Miniport(PPPOE)
With this displayed I had no problem opening new web pages at all!
Clicking Nertwork disgnostics I get the following
Windows has confirmed that this computer is currently experinecing a network connectivity problem. Unable to fix automatically.

If I look at the Network and Sharing centre the line between my router and the internet has a nice red cross on it, even though as I say I can surf the net normally!

Now there was a mention of Winsock.
MS support says how to determine and recover from Winsock2 corruption in Windows Server 2003, XP and Vista

Going to the manual steps to determine whether Winsock2 is corrupt there is a lot of items but Part 3 mentions 10 sections but I see 14.
The MS help screen shows 6 entries beginning MSAFD Netbios I don't have any of these entries
I have done a successful reset of Winsock as per MS but still the problem persists.
As stated before this happens with any router connected to my PC.

Hey all,
I've been running W7 since beta (now using the RTM) and every few reboots or coming back from sleep mode, it loses connectivity to the Internet. Very frustrating. It usually takes one or two hard reboots (or even unplugging and leaving the computer sit) to get it back. No rhyme or reason. I'm dual booting, so I can boot right over to XP and things are normal. Never had this issue with the XP boot, just W7. This problem happened with the other builds as well.

Troubleshooting in W7 never finds anything (no surprise there), resetting connection doesn't work either. Connection is rock solid when I have it, it's just on reboot or coming back from sleep mode when the problem happens.

Why this just happens randomly is beyond me. Any ideas? It's keeping me from using w7 full time and I sure won't purchase it when it's this flakey.

One quick thing you can do is to uncheck IPv6 in the network card settings.
This often does the trick.
You have to realize however, that this will break the Homegroup function.
Meaning you will have to setup network shares like it is done in XP and Vista, which imho is safer and easier.

If it doesn't help, post back.

good luck

This has been an ongoing problem for around 6 mths now and is really getting to me now.
Namely the dropping of the internet.
I can be merrily surfing the net one minute and then the next if I go to a site I get the message "looking up XXXXX".
At this time my taskbar internet icon can be showing the internet connect to be either "local" or "local and internet".
Now obviously if local I will lose it but if it's saying "local and internet" why doesn't it work? It will eventually drop back to local everytime. Even though at all times the ADSL line light on my modem/router is showing solid.
The problem is intermittent. I can have best part of a day without trouble, then it may happen lots of times in a short period.
To get it back requires reboots of the modem/router and/or reboots of the PC.
I have tried 3 different modem/routers all do the same. Now losing patience

Hi there

I have tried posting this elsewhere and have had no replies so I thought I would post my hijackthis logs and see if anyone can help me here.

Symptoms I am trying to overcome:

About twice a day my computer (connected to NTL broadband via a router) ceases to gain access to ftp, https:// pages, Remote desktop (unless already connected when it continues to work) and non-NTL pop3 email, though the NTL accounts continue to check fine. Normal browsing of the internet is not affected. This phenomenon is not repeated on the other PCs on the network so it seems it is specific to this one - my main one. This lasts about 20 minutes when it happens.

I did a Hijackthis log while everything was running smoothly, and I have done another while the problem was presenting. As you will see, different programs were running, but otherwise as far as I can see they are identical. I am hoping someone can help, if there is anything here that might cause the problem described above.

My work uses SuddenLink cable for their internet. We have a small network. The modem is connected through the WRT54G Linksys Router which is set as a gateway & in the middle of the building another WRT54G which is set as a slave. (Both are wireless so this is for wireless coverage)
IP for the master is 192.168.1.1 & for the slave 192.168.1.2. The master assigns IP's via DHCP.
We have 15 computers on our network & a domain controller running Windows 2k Server. This is primarly to use Active Directory.

The problem is our internet keeps dropping out around the same time each night, I dont have anything running at that time to kick us off, all scheduled updates, defrag, virus scans etc are done from 2am. Usually when I come in in the morning & reboot the modem & router & all is fine. In the last 3 weeks it has gotten worse, intermittantly losing internet during the day, SuddenLinks tech support have replaced the modem 2 times, replaced the connectors & splitter. The last modem they sent apparently was left on Auto-Discovery mode so the re provisioned it. Worked great during the day for a few days then back to dropping off when it wants to. We have Nortons Corp for our virus protection, firewall is set up just on the router & I have 3 ports forwarded for VPN access & our security camera's.

Any idea's/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with a Dynex wireless G Router at home. I'm obviously working online now so I know everything is hooked up correctly. My wife has a Dell Laptop that she also connects to the internet via the router. If one of us tries to log on to the internet after being logged off for some time, Explorer tells us there's no connection. I then unplug the router and Comcast cable modem from the main power source, wait a few seconds, then plug them back in. We can then access the internet. This happens daily. If I bypass the router and plug the cable directly into the tower there is never a problem. I've tried reinstalling the router software but the same problem occurs. I thought it was my original router's problem but the problem continues with the Dynex I purchased. This also is a brand new computer but the problem occurred with my last one as well.

I have a Dell T3400 workstation computer running Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit and recently I have been losing my WiFi internet connection.

I am using a Netgear N300 router with a Netgear N300 USB WiFi antennae. Until recently I had not experienced any problems but lately when I plug a USB flash drive into my computer and then remove it I lose my internet connection. I always remove my flash drives by using the app in the Windows System Tray to stop the drive before I remove it.

After I remove the flash drive I lose my internet connection and when I look at the Available Networks widget in System Tray is shows my network but with zero bars and the diagnostic utility is of no use at resolving the problem or re-connecting. The only way I have found to re-connect is to shut my computer down and re-start it.

I have looked in Device Manager and they are no warnings or errors and everything appears to be playing nice so I am stumped and any help is appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:Losing Internet Connection

This first question may seem insulting, but I'm just trying to not overlook an obvious possibility ...

Are you positive that you are not selecting 'remove wireless adapter' instead of 'remove flash drive'?

It sounds like there is some unusual problem with the USB ports or with the "safely remove" feature. Have you tried to get the wireless working again by (physically) removing and reinserting the wireless adapter?

I have three computers on home network: two Dells, One Award. Neither of the Dells are very old, less than six months. I have a router and my own cable modem. Two of the computers are in the same room and wired. One is in another room and is wireless. (router and modem are D-Link) The "number one" computer is Dell, E-310 XP Media Center Edition, Number Two is a four-year-old AWARD, and Number Three is a Dell Dimension 2400. All are XP (2 professional, 1 home) All have at least 512MB (two have 700+) Award=1gig AMD Athlon Processor, Dells=Intel 4 and Intel 5 both 2.5gig.
Point of all this: I keep losing my (cable) internet connection every few minutes. I have "Network Magic" and it reports that all are not connected. I have power-cycled a lot of times...this works for a day or two then it starts again. Cable company is useless, probably dumber than me!! No help there.
My understanding is that whenever I power-cycle the modem, the IP address changes. The router is then still looking for the IP address and is "lost" until it finds it or I tell it. Is this right? What the heck am I doing? This has been going on forever....except for when I only had one computer and a modem. Can anyone refer me to a tutorial for dummies???
Help, please. This is so frustrating. There are times when I can't even download anything because the connection keeps getting lost and recovered, lost and recovered....etc every few minutes, sometimes seconds. That's all... Read more

Hi, Im new here. Ive been having this problem of losing my internet connection at random times for about a week now. It happens less frequent if im just trolling forums and such, but if im in a game or online training class it happens about 5 minutes in. Im running windows XP, using a Intel(R) PRO/100 M Network Adapter.

When I lose the internet, the only way to get it back is either to restart my machine, modem, or go to Network Connections and Disable then Re-Enable my local area network. Also it says its still connected, it just isn't sending or recieving any packets. Im pretty sure its not my ISPs problem as i just switched from DSL to Cable because of this and its still doing it. Ive reset my modem and that doesn't help.
Any help is much appreciated, if u need more specific info just ask.

Hi there, and welcome. Some questions for you --

Just to confirm, you had this problem with your DSL service and it continues with your cable modem?

Do you use a router? If so, what make/model?

When did this problem start? And what changed on your PC if you can recall or pin-point that when this problem started?

Hi,

I'm using Windows XP with all the service packs. When the problem began I had Comodo Firewall and AVGfree as my only security programs.

Essentially, my wireless modem stays connected to the net - my ISP has told me its receiving and all its signal lights are on - but out of the blue nothing will load in Firefox and on checking my network connection in control panel it says it is non-operational and Windows cannot renew my IP address. Unplugging my modem and letting it reset solves the problem. However it began happening at two minute intervals...

So I uninstalled my firewall (Comodo) and it was much better, but still happened.

I installed Zone Alarm and its happening at least once an hour. I have NO idea what to look for and am concerned I will lose the ability to access the net entirely.

Appreciate any help you can give.

Thanks,
Cystar

A few questions that will help in diagnosing the problem;

1. Wired or WiFI connection?
2. Is there a router?
3. Provider, such as; Comcast, CenturyLink, etc?
4. Is the location in a single family home or multi-unit building?
5. Are you using any security features on the system, such as a firewall?

Hi, Welcome to SF.

You may follow the steps.
a. Click Start.
b. In the search box type cmd
c. Right click cmd and select Run as administrator.
d. Type the following commands and press ENTER.
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

Also, scan for virus. Run antivirus and Malwarebytes. Disable IPv6. If this resolves, good.
Else, Go to MY NETWORK AND SHARING CENTER > LOCAL AREA CONNECTION > LOCAL AREA CONNECTION PROPERTY > TCP/IP (IPV4) >PROPERTY > USE THE FOLLOWING IP>GIVE YOUR IP ADDRESS MANUALLY.

Wondering if anyone here can help me. Recently, out of the blue........my computer drops its internet connection. It happens if I am not using it for a while, or when it hibernates, screen savor comes on, etc... I have an always on cable modem and never had a problem with it in 3 years.

The only way I get it back is to unplug the modem, and then restart the computer.

It is getting a signal, but not seeing the IP address, I am assuming.

Thanks for any help

First, I hope I posted this in the right category.

Ok, here's the issue, I can't surf the web after after I leave my PC alone. This only happens when after it goes into a screensaver mode.

Here are my settings:
14 minutes for my screensaver
20 minutes to turn off monitor

The problem is my zonealarm. After shutting down zonealarm, everything is fine.
This seems to be at a random case. It can anytime after the monitor shuts down.

So basically, my solution to this is shutdown zonealarm or restart. Is there a way to prevent this? I cant seem to find any settings in ZA.

I had a problem earlier in the week with my computer losing my internet connection. I have Time Warner Cable (Road Runner) and I was on the phone with them several times discusing the problem. They said it was on my end and after replacing the cable that went from the modem to the internet card and removing and reinstalling the card for the internet the problem went away.
The problem came back today twice.
If I reboot the computer I get my internet connection back but when I had the problem earlier in the week that only worked afew times and then it didn't do any good.
I know its not the modem because I tried a friend's and it did the same thing. I'm thinking its the card that is installed in the computer. I don't know what else it could be.
Any suggestions????
 

A:Losing Internet Connection

What is the make/model of the modem?

It could be the NIC, the drivers, the cable, or something in the machine configuration.

Since you tried a different modem, have you packed your computer to your friend's house to see if the problem occurs there?

Hi,

Recently, I've been losing my internet connection sporadically. Also, there will be times when it SAYS I'm connected, yet the email says it can't find the server and no pages will load. Sometimes, if I wait, it will eventually work, sometimes I'll have to disconnect and re-connect for it all to work. I also have Callwave and ocassionally it will also have trouble logging on. Now, I did a "ping" test and it all came back okay. And the ISP (Earthlink) icon in the taskbar says that I am connected as usual.

I do live very far out in the mountains, and I have always thought that sometimes the phoneline connection is simply not too good, since this has always been something that has happened, especially on weekends.

What's different now is that where once it would happen maybe once or twice a month, it's NOW happening several times a day.

So, before I call my ISP and harp at them, I'd like to make sure that it is not something about my computer that is causing this increase in problems. A couple times a month I can easily ignore, but several times daily is rather annoying.

Thanks for reading, and here is the HJT log:

Hello debjerry,

No infection but too much protection showing here, and very likely some of that is involved in problems. SpywareGuard right off would be potentially blocking normal system functions, and given this setup you might be better not using it. Then you have AntiVir as a much needed antivirus software, but also a-squared there. And AVG anti-spyware, but also the more intrusive Spyware Doctor. And all that working with Commodo's firewall active as well. Disable all of it, uninstall the duplicated ones, reboot after each uninstall and then check after for improvements all around and see how that does.
