I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

My Internet connection can go for days with no problem and then for half a day will disconnect every few minutes. The strange thing is that all I have to do to get it back is to disconnect the cable from my computer and reconnect it and in seconds I have Internet again. My internet provider cannot find a problem with the connection and all assume it has something to do with the modem or router but I cannot find any problem with them.

We have a router with 2 computers connected to it and we have a static IP.

I have no 3rd party firewalls and like I said, most of the week this doesn't happen.

I have read all kinds of solutions and have tried them all (installing router\modem\windows updates, etc...)

Instead of trying to figure out what the cause is, since my solution is taking out the cable and putting it back, thus forcing a reconnection, I wanted to ask if you know of any software that would monitor my internet connection and when it sees that it got disconnected, it would force a restart of the connection (like what I do manually by taking the cable in and out.)

Thanks.

A:Internet disconnects for no reason

Well, instead of manually taking the cable in and out, go into command promt (Start -> "cmd") and type "ipconfig /renew".

Have you tried scanning for viruses? In one case I had, an infected computer was attempting to attack other computers on the network, disconnecting them from the internet. Use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or SUPER Antispyware.

Help please

A:Wireless disconnects for no reason .

Hi wayne123,

I would reccommend re-installing or updating your wireless card's driver, as a first step.

You can do this through the Device Manager.

A:Having random disconnects for seemingly no reason.

Who is your internet provider?
How do you connect to the internet, by cable, DSL or what?
What make so sure that you are getting DOS attacks?
How do you have this "Proxy" set up?
What proxy are you using?

We are connected by cable (Comcast) and yes we loose connections from time to time. Most of the time it appears to us, that it is the tech's out there working on the cable line. When trouble shooting the tech's will be checking each connection and sometime will clean the connectors. Each will break the connection and result in you loosing the connection.

Title pretty much explains it

What happens is, every hour at :03 the internet just stops working..
No error or anything at all comes up and the browser appears normal, but when you try to do anything internet related at all (website, msn, chat etc) it acts as if the connection is not there.. ie. web-page cannot be displayed and things like that. This is very very frustrating as anything which requires more than an hour of connection time I cannot do... large downloads/updates primarily...

If you just leave it for about 4-5 mins, it automatically starts working again... but any sort of attempt to reconnect straight after it stops working fails (reconnecting, resetting modem)

I'm pretty sure it's got nothing to do with idle internet, as many people have suggested (plenty of activity and idle time is not set at 1 hour).

Help would be greatly appreciated, as I'm all out of ideas....

Hey, recently (today) the computer monitor will turn off and severe the connection between monitor and computer. That meaning the monitor doesnt show any thing on the screen (even though the computer is on) it will show what it usualy shows when the computer is turned off (red green blue, please check the power cable or computer is the message)

EXAMPLE: Im playing world of warcraft, boom screen goes blank and the monitor goes into its computer off state. I turn the monitor on and off but it doesnt do anything. The computer is still on and running.

Ohh yeah and i reseated the video card and switched the monitor, same thing is still happening.
 

A:Help! Computer monitor turns off and disconnects from computer for no reason.

If you have integrated video...try that and see if same thing. Just a thought. Could be the card. Reinstall video processor drivers. Give the machine a good general checkup. Does this happen when you're not playing a game? Or just when things are accelerated?

So I have an interesting problem with Internet Explorer. It will not connect to the Internet and on a stranger note, when I try to watch videos through Windows Media Player on Firefox, it will also not connect. HOWEVER, if I stream videos in the actual player itself (copy-ing and pasting the url) it works fine. So, I know this is just seems very generic, but I can't figure it out. I open it up...IE 7 says it is trying to connect and says it is connecting but just never loads anything up. When Windows Media Player is integrated with Firefox, it just does nothing. Doesn't say it is trying to connect. Doesn't do anything.

Has anyone else had this problem?
 

A:Internet Explorer will not connect to the Internet, for no reason at all

your problem could be countless of things that can cause it. If you're willing, try the following:

1. create a new profile
then login to new profile and check if you have itnernet access
2. if you get internet access, go to c:\doc & settings and copy: desktop / favorites in to the new profile and delete the old profile

Hi,

First welcome to TSF!!!

Next I would try a couple of things. Start off with a power cycle of your equipment, and see if that helps. Next you would need to narrow it down to what is causing the problem. Does it only happen when you are using chrome or does it happen with other browsers, more to the point does it happen with other programs that use the internet like email, instant messaging, etc. Are you running any programs that allow you to torrent, that can cause issues with your connection.

Cheers!

When I turn on the Internet (I have a modem), it works fine until I turn other programs on then the Internet basically turns off, but the computer says I'm still connected to the Internet. Why is this doing this and why is the Internet turning off?

If I'm downloading something off the Internet say a game demo or a game update the Internet would just turn off like I said before and then I would have to disconnect and then reconnect and try redownloading and sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't.

I found a pattern or it's just coincidence, but when the downloading box isn't the main thing selected for a while the Internet turns off. Someone please help and don't tell me to ask my ISP he's the other word for donkey.

So heres the deal.
Ive recently upgraded from windows XP 32 bit to Windows 7 64bit, this ofcourse means Ive formatted my harddrives and made a clean install.
But now Ive realised, that whenever I try to download a large file which takes several minutes, my computer will disconnect from the router and I have to let windows do its thing and it says its "Resetting Network card" After this I have to reboot the PC and yet again let windows do its thing where it tells me to let it reactivate my network card. When Ive done this Ill be connected to the internet again. Ive tried to let my PC run for several hours just to make sure its not random dc's but within 5 mins of me starting a download it dc's. I can browse around just fine and have tried countless of different solutions around the web and none have helped so far. Now I beg you to give me Every single possible solution that you guys can think of. Keep in mind that I have another PC running vista connected to the router and that one works just fine, and I never had this problem on XP.
Also please keep in mind that Im not all that techie when it comes to router settings and such, so keep it simple for the sake of my brain not overheating!

Thanks in advance.

A:Internet Disconnects

Sounds like a network driver problem but I don't see any network driver downloads fro Windows 7 X86 or X64 on the ASUS site for the Gigabit network device.

As a test, remove the router from the setup and connect directly to the broadband modem. Try a download and see what happens. If it fails the same way then the router is definitely involved. If it doesn't fail then try swapping the port and cable the router is connected to with the one currently in use by the Vista computer then try the test again.

If it works then it is either the Ethernet cable or some problem with that specific port on the router. If it doesn't make any difference, then try deleting the Gigabit network device from Device Manager as follows:

Press WinKey+R to open a Run box.
Type devmgmt.msc and press Enter
Expand Network Adapters
Right click on the Gigabit device and select Uninstall
Reboot and wait while Windows 7 rediscovers the device and reloads the driver, see if that helps.

I have two internet connections, one of which is not connected to the router, both connections are affected. Used to work fine and I don't think I have done anything that would cause this.

My connection to the network is reported as excellent but randomly the actual download speed drops away to nothing.
Does yours "mend " itself after a short while and start working again...or is yours off for good. I find rebooting the laptop resolves it faster than waiting for it to do it itself...until it does it again(not good).
I use a belkin router (number can be supplied when I get home if needed) ..maybe thats the common?

Hi theriffs1

I have Verizon DSL also, I was receiving the Pop up ballon: An network cable has been unplugged about every hour.

I would need to physically reseat the ethernet cable, (are you using an ethernet connection or a USB connection?), finally I purchased a new ethernet cable and that problem went away.

I did call Verizon, they have a free upgrade from 1.5mb/368kbps to 3.0mb/768kbps, it was offered to me without my asking.

Have you tried an ipconfig/release, ipconfig/renew from a command window?

Start > Run
key in:
cmd /k ipconfig
Click: Enter
The information appearing will show you what your IP address is, and how long before it expires.
My IP address renews itself every 15 minutes.

At a command prompt in the same command window key in:
ipconfig/release
Enter
Then key in:
ipconfig/renew
Enter
Your IP address should be renewed.

Have you had any viruses that may have corrupted your Winsock?

Let us know if this makes a difference or not, and if you don't have the upgrade yet, call Verizon and get it!

I thought it was time for a new router so I bought two new ones to replace the old ones, so I did. They were replaced but the problem still continued! I updated the router firmware and it would fix it temporarily, but after a day it started again.

Hi, You might have another wifi signal very close to your house that is on 'your' channel, it happens.
You can only move your channel to one of three different frequencies, that is the lowest, the middle or the highest one. So say your current channel is 6, there is no point going to 7, it's still too close.
If the 'other' problem wifi channel near you is say '1' then you should try to go to the other end of the range.
You change your WiFi channel in your router, then your laptop will find it.
You don't need a website to do that, it's between your laptop and your router.
You make the changes through any web browser, and the details will probably be on the label of your router.
But this might not the problem, although it's a fairly easy one to 'fix' if it is.

Hi All
I have been having internet disconnects every since I have had VISTA. It is the same that used to occur in WIN ME & 98. It happens when you spend a long time surfing on one web site. There was a fix for this problem then and I have forgotten it. It is not my server as I have another computer with WIN 98SE and it does not happen. I have to cycle my DSL modem off & on to reconnect. I am connected through a router to a second computer and to the modem and the second computer stays connected. The internet icon (lower right display) will indicate local only is connected.

A:Internet Disconnects

If you're using a laptop or server, the network card may be configured to go into power saving mode releasing the IP address after a set amount of time of non-activity.

Which version of Windows Vista are you using? Vista is known to have plenty of networking issues on it's own so it may be worth searching Microsoft's KB (Knowledge Base) at www.microsoft.com if you're familiar with it.

Also your computer system mentions a Dell E-520 which appears to be a standard desktop PC, would you be able to confirm this?

Finally, if you could post the results of an "ipconfig /all" while the network is connected and then when it becomes unavailable, this would help troubleshoot the problem.

Regards,
Roden

Hello, I just got a new computer and I'm having internet problems. I used to use an old XP desktop with direct connection and it stayed connected, used my vista laptop with direct connection and it stayed connected, and now with my new W7 desktop the internet does not stay connected. It just disconnects and reconnects in a split second. This interferes while I'm playing games (3 different games), it'll tell me I have lost connection, and when I check my internet connection it says I'm connected. Sometimes I see the little internet connection icon on the bottom say X then a little loading circle then back online in a second. It interferes when I'm streaming also. It happens every 10-30 min or so and it gets REALLY annoying. Anybody have similar problems? Any way to fix?

A:Internet disconnects for a second

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Useful information here: Constant disconnects from my wireless - Microsoft Answers

I suspect there may be incompatibility issues between your games and Windows 7. Can you run the games in Compatibility Mode for Windows XP SP3?

My dear friends

I am using a Windows XP Pro system. I use to connect to the internet with dial-up connection. Recently, my connection started showing a strange behaviour. I can connect to the internet, but after a few seconds of establishing the connection the system automatically disconnects from the internet and prompts to redial. When I redial it connects again but disconnects too. The same thing repeats whenever I try to connect to the internet. I checked the settings, but everything was right (I didn't change them either).

What could be the reason for this problem? Could anyone help me solve it, please?

Regards.

Vinod
 

A:Connects to Internet,disconnects soon after

Mostly this kind of problem is caused by bad connection, usually every ISP has more than 1 phone number for their customers to connect to the internet, maybe the phone number you were using was busy, try to connect again using the other numbers. If you don't know the other numbers, call your ISP and ask for another number you can use to connect to the internet.

About every 15 minutes or so the web will stop working for me for about a minute. For instance I'll be browsing YouTube and a page will fail to load, but if I refresh a minute later everything is fine again. Strangely other things work just fine, for instance if I'm playing games online I never get kicked off and my connection icon never shows any problems.

I have tried all three major browsers, and my ISP can't see a problem. I've actually had this problem two other times but it seemed to just go away eventually.

Any idea what could be going on?

My mom's computer is connected to our DSL through a USB port. It all of a sudden stopped working and I'm not sure what's going on. It all started happening when I cleaned out her computer with Spybot, Adaware and Hijack This. Our DSL (says 2WIRE on it) has 2 connections in the back, one for ethernet and one for USB. I have mine connected through ethernet and hers uses the USB. I just restored everything Hijack This removed and her computer is restarting now, but if that doesn't do the trick, how can I fix this? I checked and everything is plugged in properly.
 

A:Internet all of a sudden disconnects?

oops; you can have ONE ethernet or ONE USB, but not both connected at the same time.

Two connect multiple computers, you need a cheap router and it cables
like this
modem->router --> two cables, one to each computer
Mom will need to use the ethernet RJ45 connection rather than the USB,
but it will all run fine, independently or simultaneously

My main desktop is Win XP Pro SP3 with a Linksys router. Through the router, my husband connects with his desktop, and I connect with my laptop. However, my main desktop just loses the internet connection spontaneously.

I have replaced the Ethernet cable with no luck. Sometimes if I switch out the ends of the cable, the internet connection will stay on for a few minutes and then disappear; however, I can still connect through my laptop, and my husband can connect through his desktop without problems.

I have limited knowledge of how routers, etc., work, but it seems to me that if it was a router problem the two peripheral computers would not connect. My Ethernet card is affixed to my motherboard, and I have thought about just putting in a new Ethernet card; but without knowing what the problem might be, I don't want to do that without some help first.

Any help you can give me would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

My Internet disconnects every few seconds/minutes. While I'm on Vent it will just disconnect and reconnect at least once every 3 minutes. Also, When I'm playing any games on steam, It will disconnect me from steam at times, but the game that I am playing online still plays just fine. I called my ISP and they said all the lines look fine. My brother says he doesn't have the problem, but he doesn't have steam or vent. He just uses browser mainly.

My PC:
Antec 900
Asus Sabertooth P67
I7 2600k
XFX Radeon 6870
8gb Corsair Vengeance
750w Corsair PSU
640gb WD caviar blue

Router/Modem: Cisco DDR2200-CL

ISP: CenturyLink

Phone line is directly connected to the modem/router. Then from the modem the Ethernet cable goes to a box on the electrical outlet then gets picked back up in the office. I'm plugged into a switch from their.

I don't have a home phone. The only thing running on my phone line is the internet, so i don't have any filters on the phone jacks.

When I get disconnected, the Internet and DSL lights on the router remain solid green.

Hello, I recently started having problems with my internet connection where I'll be online (game or random browsing) and I will randomly be disconnected. I am hardwired through a wireless router. The most I run at one time would be Ventrilo, website in background, and WoW and this has never happened before until a couple of days ago. I attempted to switch ports and still same results.

I thought maybe it was the NVidia nForce Networking Controller and the WoW support forums suggested I go in Device Manager > Advanced Tab > Checksum Offload - Disabled, Speed/duplex Setting - Force 100 Full Duplex --- It also recommended I turn off the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option. I have done all this and to no avail. The NVidia nForce Networking Controller verison is 4.7.5.0. I am at a loss as to what to do from here on.

Let me know what information I can provide to help solve this.

Thank you!!!

p.s. - This took me 10 minutes to write while I was dropped here and there randomly.... the irony...
 

A:Random internet disconnects

Easiest thing to do is try being connected directly to the modem (bypass the router) or get another router and see if the same thing happens. I had this issue about a year ago, replaced my router and it's been solid since then.

Hi guys, I'm having an issue with my verizon dsl internet connection. It disconnects randomly with the dsl light on my modem blinking green. I usually I turn the button on the modem off an then back on and that brings it back(until it disconnects again). This has been going on for about 5 days and off on for many months now. I was thinking maybe the issue is that my dsl filter on my landline(a cordless phone) might be too old because we hear some static on the line, its over 5 years old. I don't use a filter on the line that goes into my modem, I use a Toshiba Satellite L355D Laptop using Windows Vista. Any thoughts?
 

A:Random Internet disconnects

With your symptoms I'd certainly put the filter at the top of the suspect list.
