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.

Hi, i have been having some problems with my internet connection in that it drops constantly, as in every 20 - 30 minutes or so. I live in a house where there are three laptops in operation but mine is the only one with this problem. i have tried moving to different areas around the house but this still doesnt help and the problem persists. It is even worse when i am streaming something such as a video or when im on skype sometimes dropping out after 5 minutes.
I thought it might be my computer but it also happens on my phone at the same time as it drops on my laptop.
about a year ago my laptop did overheat which damaged some of the components and that has been a persistent problem also but the last time this happened was about two months ago and this problem with the internet has only been present for about a week!
I am at a loss and have no idea what why it is happening or how to fix it. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thankyou.

HiI hope someone can help me, this problem has been ongoing since the first day i bought it in 2012 december. the wifi disconnects to a 'limited' state. upon checking the device manager, the wireless adaptor is disabled. so i enable it and it gets back on again but no sooner is it on, it drops again. in 2014 i got dell tech to replace a new wifi card. on the spot, he too see how the new card didnt solve the problem. he nevertheless still left with the problem unsolved.recently the problem got very bad to a point it disconnects almost right away when i connect it back. i googled and found theres tonnes of issue with this wireless n2230. i came across a solution (disabling bluetooth). it worked for a day but the same thing came back after.i have done all sorts. factory reset, disabling and re-enabling, update windows and browsers and everything i can think of, its updated. im currently on win8, i do not know what other info i need to provide. i hope someone can help me im on the verge of smashing it out the window

My first question would be if you have upgraded to Windows 8.1. If not that would be the first thing I would do.
 
If you have 8.1 then I am assuming it is 64bit.
 
What is the make and model of the computer?

My Verizon wireless ( cellular air-card 4G hotspot ) modem / router ( jet pack 890l ) constantly times out or only partially loads pages while browsing the internet. Or I get an error that the "server not found" This had happened ever since I got a new PC with Windows 7. I have reset the modem, reseated the SIM card, checked for new soft ware and firmware (none at this time). I have updated my network adapter driver. Checked for a hidden Microsoft mini adapter, none there. Checked Microsoft's support forums for compatibility issues. Nothing has helped. What else can I do?

My laptop is an Intel Pentium Inside, made by Toshiba.

From what I can tell, my laptop is the only one in the house that seems to have issues with its wireless connectivity. At any given point in time, it will just seem to have issues staying connected, drop the connection for a few moments, and then restore it a few seconds later.

Now, while this doesn't interfere with internet usage very often, this does mean that Instant Messengers and things such as chatrooms are frequently exited out of for me, which has grown to be very annoying.

Every time I move my laptop from one room to another or shut down the computer and start it back up, it drops the connection. Recently, it has even started randomly dropping the connection throughout the day.

I'm at wit's end, and I have no idea what to do. Can anyone help me with this?

I have a Netgear WGR614v.5 wireless router connected to my Quest DSL internet connection. My HP Pavilion laptop has problems connecting if it is not sitting in the same room as the router. The built in wireless card (Broadcom) will not see the network at all once it is in another room and the card I bought (D-Link) will pick up a connection in various places in the house, but will drop the connection if the computer gets moved my even an inch, sometimes less. It's extremely eratic. Both cards are included in my list of approved MAC addresses, and have the correct WEP password. There are three other laptops (Dell, Tosiba, Apple) that belong to family members or friends that have no problem connecting at all. The network signal is strong throughout the house. The settings on my HP are all equivalent to the settings on the compters that work, so I'm can't figure out why I can't connect. Anyone have an idea?

Hello,
My laptop consistently manages to drop its connection, despite every other device in the house managing to access websites just fine, my iPhone 6 for example.
My WiFi connector is Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter.
Sometimes as I connect to a website, this pops up:
"Your connection was interrupted
A network change was detected
ERR_NETWORK_CHANGED"
Or sometimes:
"There is no Internet connection
Try:
Checking network cables (these are fine since other devices work)
Reconnecting to WiFi (also fine since my laptop says I am connected and have Internet access even though I don't)
Running Windows Diagnostics (when I did this last time it just said "No problems detected" or something along those lines).
I am using Windows 10 and when I open the WiFi list, it says I am "Connected, secured" to my WiFi.
I have run Malwarebytes AntiMalware, CCleaner, Adware Cleaner, Malwarebytes JunkWare Removal Tool, MalwareBytes AntiRootkit and Avast Antivirus Free.
No viruses/trojans found.
Could someone help me to see if there is anything hidden or if its something else?
Thank you!

My computer is a Toshiba Sattelite o/s win 7. My wi fi signal is excellent, yet my signal keeps dropping or saying limited access. I have tried resetting the router and resetting my default windows settings on the computer. All other lap tops and wireless devices in the house do not have an issue. I discovered the other day as long as the laptop ( not the router) is plugged in and not running on batter power that i do not have a problem staying connected. For fun i wondered if it had something to do with the power cord making some kind of connection when plugged into the lap top, (since everything is more compact in them) I tried having the power cord plugged into the lap top but not into a power source but I still lost signal. Any suggestions?
 

A:Wifi connection constantly drops when lap top is operating on battery power

Sounds like you may have some power saving option for the wireless adapter when on battery. If so, try a higher (e.g., maximum performance) setting.

My attachment shows that for the plan I'm using I have 'medium power saving' for the wireless when on battery. If I were having your problem I would change that setting to 'Maximum Performance' and test.

Hi, I am using Windows 8.1 and have run into internet connection issues for the last few months.  This happens initially when I start my computer, but also my computer randomly disconnects (it might stay connected for hours, other times it disconnects in twenty minutes).  Only my wired desktop disconnects - my wireless devises have not experienced the issue.  To regain internet access, I need to unplug my modem/router, wait a few seconds and plug it back in.
 
I have tried different ethernet cables and ports in the Comcast modem/router.  I have also tried other things to troubleshoot the issue:
 
- Used the Windows "Troubleshoot Problems" option
- Ran NCPA.CPL - disabled then enabled the network connection
- Tried IPCONFIG / RELEASE - then RENEW 
- Ran the Microsoft NetShell utility
 
Thank you in advance,

Hi,
I have a Toshiba M45-S359 notebook laptop. About every 20-30 seconds, the wireless connection drops off (and immediately automatically reconnects). This is not a router issue because I tried 2 different routers (Linksys and Netgear) and also the wireless connection is perfectly stable on the other laptop I have. There are no interference issues. My phone operates at a very different (5.8 GHz) frequency. Also, the issue exists even when I have the laptop sitting very close to the router. Any suggestions/advice? Thanks in advance.

I have had this same problem on every network i have been on so i dont think it is the hardware on that end. i have tried updating my nic card through device manager but it says everything is up to date. so do yall have any suggestions?

Hi,

I've researched the forum a little bit already about this issue, but haven't found a real solution yet. I have a brand new Lenovo X200 w/ an Intel 5300 AGN wireless card, and my connection drops and immediately reconnects very often. As I'm typing this, it has happened several times.

On recommendations from various forum posts, I have:
1) Installed the latest Intel driver (13.0.0.107) - supplied by Lenovo on recommendation from Intel's site.
2) Disabled IP6 in my wireless adapter
3) Played around with various power settings
4) Played around with various device driver advanced settings.

Nothing seems to make a difference. If anyone knows how to alleviate this issue, please let me know.

Thanks.

It doesn't hamper normal browsing but its an obvious pain for gaming. I solved it once before, a while back, but its come back in its original form. I couldn't find the method I used before. All I remember is reading a forum that said to uninstall something from my Device Manager that Windows had added in and once I did it worked beautifully. I think it might have cropped back up in an update or something. But I have tried renewing my IP, turning off power saving on my network adapter, restarting everything, but I can't find that utility to uninstall nor the forum I saw.

Hello, my R51 (2887-32G) randomly drops wireless connection, especially when starting to download large files. For instance, when I try to download iTunesSetup.exe, the download is interrupted. Instead, if I just surf webpages, the problem occurs less.I tried a Live Distro (xubuntu) and this problem does not occur there. The problem manifests with Windows XP (with all latest updates and sp), using the 1.2.4.41. There used to be more recent drivers on intel's website, but I saw that they've removed them. I remember using this laptop 3 years ago with and wireless was OK - no trouble at all. And I do remember I was using the intel driver. Unfortuantely, I have no backup of this driver and upgraded my R51 in the meantime, so I am with the default drivers again. Or maybe SP3 might be the problem? Thanks for any advice! Message Edited by pi4630 on 01-29-2009 10:57 PM

I am having the EXACT same problem on a T41 with the same card. There is a thread in that forum for it. I even tested doing the same as yourself with 8.0.4 Xubuntu.. no problems. I think this is an SP3 issue. I also see that Intel has issued an EOS on this card.. so I would assume we are not going to see anymore updates that would help us out. Please if you do find a solution, post it. I think an upgrade of wireless card if you want to continue to use SP3 will have to be the choice. James

While using Windows 7 x64, I get sporadically disconnected from the internet for no obvious reason. The wireless utility always shows as connected (though it very rarely does flash a "limited or no connectivity" symbol for a moment when it loses the connection) and the driver for my wireless card (a DLink Airplus G DWL g510 Rev.B) says it's up to date.

On 32-bit Windows XP, I don't have this problem. It is also not a problem for any other computers in the home. As this is a completely fresh install, a virus or malware program is more or less out of the question. I have disabled all firewalls and even uninstalled AVG while trying to make this work; nothing has. Streaming video is interrupted and usually forces me to refresh the page, World of Warcraft will play alright for usually a -very- short time before "lagging out" and disconnecting me.

This happens usually every few minutes, somewhere around 3-5, I'd hazard. It seems fairly regular but I haven't been able to actually time it. I'm using the default Microsoft wireless connection app--so no utilities running. As I mentioned before, there is no error message aside from a very rare flash of the "limited or no connectivity" message, no firewalls, and no antivirus.

Any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

Hello,I have been having serious problems with my HP Pavilion 17 Notebook's WiFi driver. It first began with periodic disconnects when I was using Windows 8.1. When I would close the notebook it would disconnect from WiFi, and every few hours it would disconnect as well. (Connection to my router would display a yellow exclamation point, say limited, and all other networks would disappear from view).More recently, within the past week, the disconnects have become far more frequent. I'm talking every 10 minutes or so. Now it's at the point where the lap top is simply unusable.In the past I would just go into devices through the control panel, and disable then enable the Ac3160 driver and that would seem to do the trick to get me through the day. However, now that simply does not work. I am at my wit's end.Yesterday I updated to Windows 10 to see if that would alter the way the driver is behaving - nope.I have unchecked any boxes in power management settings that would disable network connection to save power.I have updated the driver.I could definitely use some help!

The only one that was compatible in the service manual for a Intel processor was the Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11 bgn 1x1 Wi-Fi adapter.  Here is a link to the service manual. Thanks.

Hi,

Hoping someone can help.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop running Windows XP with a wireless connection to a broadband router.

Several weeks ago my laptop started dropping the internet connection randomly (I'm alos unabel to access email when this happens).

My wireless network icon in my toolbar shows the connection as 'Excellent' but for some reason both Internet and Email is not available. The only way to fix the problem has been to restart my laptop which is very frustrating.

I've noticed that this also happens randomly when I'm at home (using different wireless broadband modem) so I think the issue is my laptop not the 2 x routers/modems.

I'm running NOD32 for security as well (but have been for 4 years now with no problems till now).

Please help.

Dear Support-Team:

Could you please tell me,
a) Which Toshiba-Driver Version for Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 should be the current or newest Version?
b) Has Toshiba the Intel-Driver Version modified or adapted or updated to Toshiba Hardware?
c) From where can I get the new Driver? I couldn't find it for Windows 10 upgrade by the Toshiba Support Driver-Download web page.

Thank you in advance.

I have inspiron 14 5000 series. it's like every other day there is in update for these driver and i have been trying to install it. It says successful afterwards but when i check again in a day or 2 there a new update again. It's the same driver that was updated in august 2017. I'm not sure what is going on.

This is what I get whenever I try to install it manually. I chose 'repair'. 
after all that. I checked again it says there's an update available for that particular driver. 

This slows down my browser. I'm not sure if this is normal. 
Please help.

Long story sorta short:

I switched from Shaw to MTS a few months back, shaw gave me no problems what so ever. But now with MTS it seems like i disconnect everytime ANY item tries to download from the internet, even if its just a small 2kb website banner, game patch, anything that requires user to user/server exchanging and downloading.

Ive called up MTS asking what going on, they spent hours on the phone with me going over EVERY SINGLE situation in their books to try helping me, but the problem is unknown to them. I have 3 options

1: pay $100 to have them come over and look at the wiring in my house (wish isnt the problem why would the wires give out only during downloads....)

2: Pay $100-$500 fixing my computer because something might be wrong with it (they say) (i already did 2 harddrive wipes and bought 2 new harddrives and still no change)

3: Spend $1000-$2000 on a new comp

I have to lug my whole comp over to a friends just to download patches and stuff and theres no problem at his place, when I go to lans theres also no problems.

Can anyone tell me why this happens? and what I can do?

Hi

In our MD's house, we have fibre optic connection given by the ISP upto Distribution box inside the house where the fibre optic cable is connected to HUAWEI-ECHOLFIE HG865 terminal .From the RJ 45 port in that device , the ethernet cable goes to the DLINK 8 port switch. All the 8 ports are connected with ethernet cables to 8 rooms going concealed through the wall.

Our ISP person tested the connection by connecting one patch cable (from the DLINK SWITCH via the wall socket)to the WAN port of LINKSYS WRT300N wireless router and connecting other ethernet cable from the lan port of the router to the laptop ,setup the username ,password, encapsulation pppoe and configured the internet .found working.

I tried to configure the wireless in the house by fixing LINKSYS access point in some rooms.Here the problem started.

I cannot fix the LINKSYS router inside the DB in front portion of the house since there is no space in that and cannot keep the linksys router outside also,
So I kept the linksys router inside one room and connected its lan port to the wall socket inside the room and connected its WAN PORT to one of its lan port because I want to share the internet in all the rooms.

I checked the internet in all the rooms by taking one laptop to all the rooms and checked through the access point configured in each room.

After few minutes internet drops and the led's in the LINSKYS router starts continuously blinks as if there is some problem

Hello,

I've been having this problem for a while now. My internet connection just drops randomly and then comes back on in a few seconds. It has been occurring more frequently since a couple months ago.

I'm running windows xp, have a d-link router, at&t as my isp.

Im a gamer so this is really a bothersome thing. I noticed it started to occur when I had some spyware issues, I believe it was megatoolbar or something like that. I have gotten rid of it though. Is that maybe still the problem?

A friend of mine is running Outlook Express on a DSL connection. He can surf and download just fine. When he enters OE and checks mail, after a minute or so, the internet connection goes dead. Any ideas?
 

A:OE drops internet connection

Check to make sure OE is not set to disconnect after send and receive.
Thats what it sounds like is happening.

In OE, Tools - Options - Connection.
Uncheck "hang up after sending and receiving"

My internet intermittently drops. How do I determine if it's the ethernet card or the router that's slowing dying? (or something else)

I purchased a cheap ethernet card and that *seems* to be a good fix so far. But there were plenty of times before then, where I would reset my router and I'd have connection again...until I didn't.
I didn't mind the 12 bucks I spent on the card, but how can I determine if my router is faulty? or is it something simpler like, the ethernet cable itself?

Thank you

Hello. this is my first time posting. I need help with some computer activity. Normally I am pretty efficient at getting help before it becomes a problem; however, this time I was wrong. Long story short, I ran AVG and while in a hurry I simply clicked fix all and had it delete everything else (running late for class).

Now for the current problem... sometimes my internet will work, sometimes it won't. I'll click on a page and have to refresh it 5 or 6 times before it'll load properly. I'll be on AIM and within a few seconds I'll have been disconnected yet won't know it for a few minutes. AVG won't update and says that a .bin file is missing. I'm not sure what to do about all of this....so, here I am.

The viruses/trojans hadn't affected the normal function of the computer (or at least hadn't yet) and has only happened after I ran this last thorough scan.

Could someone please take a look at my HJT log. I think I got infected with tcpipmon.exe about a week back. I followed instructions to get rid of it and since then my internet connection crashes after about 5 or 10 minutes of starting up the computer. This happens every time I reboot. I looked at my network connections and it shows it all to be fine. MSN messenger and my email client both continue to work ok. I tried mozilla firefox but it was exactly the same result. I confess to having a go myself and have ran smitfraud fix and vundo fixes. I have ran various spyware scans but they don’t show anything resembling a problem to cause this. I would be eternally grateful for someone to take a look at the attached HJT log and tell me if they see anything that shouldn’t be there. I’m resisting the temptation to dabble further until someone has an expert look…thanks

I connect to internet from my XP PC using wireless router. After periods of being idle I notice I cannot connect to internet yet I can still connect to router. My W98 PC always remains connect to internet, so I know the router hasn't dropped the connection to the cable modem. Rebooting the XP PC usually fixes the problem. Anyone know why this is happening??

Hi I am new to your forums but from what I read on various topics I can see some smart peeps are here to help...I have seen some threads on my issue but I am super new to computers. I can not get connection to the net but the globe in the bottom right is on so it seems I have connection. My lights are blinking on my Cable Modem as well. I have tried to unplug and reset the modem as well but that did not help. My Internet was working fine until about 1 week ago. The Comcast Cable guy came out and stated everything is ok with my line. Reasons why my connection is not working stated at least in Vista is DNS error or can't connect to ISP...I know this has happened alot but has anyone fixed it?

Vista 64 Home prem. x64 SP1

Turn off the computer. Plug modem and router for 20 minutes. Turn on router and let it cycle for 5 minutes. Turn on router and let it cycle for 5 minutes. Turn on computer.

In black box, type IPconfig/all and see if your DNS servers are listed.

Hi all. I usually figure things out on my own, but I am having a bit of trouble with this one. I'm SUSPECTING a network issue. Nutshell: Format & reinstall Win XP SP2, dual-boot Ubuntu 8.10 (different partition). In XP, no ethernet driver to get to the NIC card and access internet on install. Found driver for NIC. Installed. Internet works for a minute or so, then slows to nothing. Close browser, re-open, SOMETIMES will work again, mostly does not. I use IE, Maxthon, Avant, all fresh downloads. All are IE "wrappers". Happens on all of them. Installed Firefox for testing. Newest browser. Internet works good for a while, then PERIODIC slowing to nothing on Firefox. Here we go again.

Here's why I suspect network: I was having this trouble after a fresh install of XP and JUST installing the NIC driver. No firewall, no antivirus, no other programs installed. It caused me to do a fresh reformat & reinstall, just in case, this time with a different NIC driver. Same problem. I'm just rolling with it now. Before the format & reinstall, the internet had ZERO issues. Same computer, same everything. Which is why this is so frustrating.

Here's the other booger: if I use Ubuntu, I can roll on Firefox and the internet all night long without the slightest hiccup.

So, this is telling me that the HARDWARE is okay, but I suspect there is a software or setting problem somewhere along the way.

I don't know what will be pertinent info for this one... Read more

Hi Folks,
Got such a quick and positive result on one issue thought I'd try another!!
First of all this is an area I know little about so be gentle and patient!!

I have a 2.0 MHz processor 512 ram lots of drive space.

I am using a router and accessing the net through Galaxy / Drirecway satellite 2 way connection. I have a full Norton security package; firewall, spam, anti virus and such.

When I access a download I start at a respectable 200+ kps but within seconds it drops steadily down to 70/80 kps.

Any ideas?
Thanks
 

A:Internet connection drops off

Normal operation. The estimate for the download is based on a sliding scale, and it normally starts out with an optimistic number. As the download proceeds, there's enough data to come up with a realistic number.

Have you ever done the speed test at www.dslreports.com? What speeds do you come up with?
