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.)

I have an old laptop running Windows 2000 and a PC running XP. I decided to use the old laptop as a second monitor using Maxivista, and it requires that both computers be connected by a TCP/IP connection. My PC is connected to the internet wirelessly to a router downstairs, and it is connected to my laptop via an ethernet cable.
Right now the TCP/IP is not working, in the command script when I ping the DNS server and Default Gateway (of the Lan connection) on both computers it doesn't work and it gives me a "request timed out" message.
But the main problem is that when my laptop is on or I have the ethernet cable connected to the laptop the internet on my PC stops working. When I turn off the laptop or pull out the cable my internet starts working again.
Any ideas as to what is the problem?

A:Wireless internet disconnects when LAN ethernet cable is plugged in

You must be using a cross-over cable in this instance. A regular LAN patch cable will not work.
Set the IP on your ethernet connection to a different subnet than used by your wireless LAN.

For example, if your Wireless LAN is distributing / using IPs in the subnet 192.168.x.x, set up your ethernet and laptop adapters as follows:

Desktop:
IP address: 10.0.0.1
Subnet Mask: 255.0.0.0
Gateway: 10.0.0.2

Laptop:
IP address: 10.0.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.0.0.0
Gateway: 10.0.0.1

You do not need to set any DNS address.

USB 8 GB Flash Drive worked fine for over a year but now disconnects moments after plugged in. Tried to plug in the flash drive both XP and Vista operating systems. The PC will issue the tone indicating that it recognizes that a device has been plugged in to USB port and the light comes on indicating power to drive, but PC will instantly issue the tone indicating that the flash drive has been disconnected. Drive info does not appear in Disk Management window and the My Computer screen will briefly show 'Scanning For Object' but the disconnect tone sounds before icon can appear.

I don't have a full backup of all information on drive. Is there any way to force drive up long enough to transfer information or any recovery software that I can try?

Hello All,

So I recently moved into a property and to my joy the house is cat6 networked! I was pleased as this would mean I could have my router in the garrage connected to the patch panel via a network switch which would allow any of the data ports in the house to provide internet. However my happyness was soon dashed when I was recently informed by the previous owner that the electrician who did the wiring stuffed it up somehow as none of the data ports seemed to work after trying to test the connection at the patch panel in the garrage.

To investigate I took one of the faceplates off and looked at the keystone and found the guy had wired on some of them brown to white with brown stripe and white with brown stripe to brown (similar things across colors) which boggled my mind how an electrican could stuff that up!

So I rewired and punched the keystone and plugged an ethernet cable into it and almost imediately the alarm started beeping complaining it had lost connection! After investigating this I was told that the data port in another room doesn't work anymore as apparently the guy who installed the alarm had to use it (couldn't understand why he couldn't just travel some new cable).

I have no idea what in the world the electrician and/or alarm people have done to it that this would happen!

I havn't been up to the roof to investigate yet but I had a look at the patch panel and it all looks like it's wired up correctly. At the moment we have FT... Read more

Hi there guys. I've have had some great help from all you guys here and I need your help again.
So my internet recently has been acting weird, not for just one laptop, but for all of them, The only thing that seems to not disconnect is the computer hooked up to the routers. 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.
Please let me know if you need any info at all.

A:internet disconnects

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!

Hi I have also been experinsing these problems. I am a video game player as well and whenever I try to play on my laptop my internet disconnects. But all my other devices that use wifi work fine. Also there is nothing wrong with my computer because it works fine on other networks such as my schools. I recently moved and am now using a different internet provider ,centerylink. I think I have to change my modem channel but centurylinks website were you change modem settings is a scam. The website does not work and my parents think theres something wrong with my computer and are refusing to change internet service providers.

A:Internet disconnects

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.
Any help would be great. Forum

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.

Roden

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.

hi Boltonsquad I have a similar sounding problem.
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!

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!

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.

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?

Every so often when i am on the internet it disconnects and i cant open any web pages. The connection is still there in the bottom right hand corner, ip address etc. are still there but web pages wont open. I try to repair but i have to reboot to make it work again. I am using a laptop on a wireless connection, think this also may have something to do with the freezes it get occasionally.

Any ideas would be appreciated

A:Every so often internet disconnects!

Welcome to TSF.

We will take a look at your system for malware, but it's unlikely the cause of loss of connection. If we can't locate a problem, you will be encouraged to ask for advice in the Networking forum, here at TSF.

Download HiJackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HiJackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose [Do a system scan and save a logfile].
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit [Scan] and then click on [Save log].
3. Post the HiJackThis.log file here. Do not fix anything in HiJackThis since they may be harmless.

Well, whenever im on my computer, my internet just randomly disconnects, then connects again about 10 seconds later. It is unbearable when im trying to play counter strike or just browsing the web. And its really bad when im on msn. Msn signs out when the net disconnects, so yeah.

I have wired with a blue cable connecting my computer to my netgear DG834g (my brother just told me that, im noob)
I have Windows Vista 32bit

I would really appreciate it if you guys helped me out. I had this problem about 2 weeks ago for around a week and i fixed it by changing the port the cable goes into in my computer (there are two ports). That fixed it. Now i don't know what to do. FFS, it's happened 3 times while i've been writing this...

PLEASE HELP A NOOB OUT!!! I REALLY want to get this fixed! I must game and i must get this fixed soon so i can get the last out of CoD4 before CoD5! I can't even do my work because the internet keeps cutting out!!
HELPIES!!!!!! (I live in Australia)

P.S This DOESNT happen to anyone else's computer in my house... just me...

Hey all, First time poster on these forums. I was hoping to get new insight as to what might be causing the issues I'm having.

About a couple weeks ago I started to experience some internet troubles. It would be every 10 minutes, or every couple hours but I would get disconnect from the internet.

To start with the tray icon, it would mostly show the triangle over the symbol when this happens, yet sometimes it would say it was connected perfectly fine. In both circumstances, during these periods it would not be able to connect to the internet.

On my network, maximum of three of us, I am the only one that is hardwired in to the router with an Ethernet cord. The other two are wireless. We had gotten a new router from Bright House, a Ubee modem/router, and were not satisfied at all when this started happening. We purchased a new router to get gigabit Ethernet ports, and to give us 5GHZ wireless channels. After installing the new router, and setting the UBEE to bridge mode, the problem persisted. When the UBEE is in bridge mode though, and I connect directly to the modem I haven't noticed the problem. Although I have never been directly connected to the modem for any extended period of time.

I have seriously tried every solution that threads have offered saying that it may be a windows 7 problem, and none seemed to do the trick. So I am finally trying to reach out to you guys to hopefully receive some help. I have tried calling Bright House and they sent ... Read more

A:Everyone randomly disconnects from Internet

The problem lies somewhere in between your ISP and PCs.

Is this how your routers are connected?
ISP ----- Ubee wireless modem/router (bridge mode) ---- 2nd wireless router

Make sure you only have one dhcp server and the routers are not operating in the same channel. You can disable the firewall of your 2nd wireless router keep the firewall on on your modem/router. You dont need to use DMZ unless you are hosting some service to be accessed through the internet.

So I reformatted my dad's comp. I get into windows for the first time and go straight to nvidia's site to get the video drivers. So I get them, install, and restart. Within a few seconds of starting up I see the GOD DAMN wormblaster window popup, along with a few other popup's talkin about my registry being corrupt (ya know... the blatantly obvious malicious popups). So I restart and dl the wormblaster fix. I restart his comp and all is good except the random popups still. So I go back to my comp to dl an antivirus program and now my internet is randomly disconnecting! I tried system restore, looking for any crap in the windows task manager, and don't know what else to do... anyone have any bright ideas? I tried to dl the AVG Antivirus 7.5 but when my net disconnects the download freezes.

I have Comcast Cable Internet service and i have a Motorola SB4200 Surfboard Cable Modem connected to a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router. From time to time I will be unable to connect to the internet. It seems to happen very randomly and I have not detected a pattern in the disconnects besides its usually when its most inconvenient for me.
This issue started a long time ago and when i first encountered it I had called Comcast and they told me simply to just unplug the modem for 10 seconds and then plug it back in and this has always effectively reset the connection and allowed me to access the internet again.
However, lately its been far too often and is really annoying. Some days it goes out multiple times within an hour.
Any ideas on a remedy to this? Will a new modem help? Or is it something else entirely?

Thanks in Advance

So this problem started a while ago, at least half a year ago when i changed internet service provider.
every once in while my internet slowed down so much that the connection on my browser timed out and some other softwares like skype would not work. When i looked in my network center it showed that my computer is connected to my LAN but not to the internet. Another weird thing was that while my internet was down i could still be in skype calls or even send texts sometimes but my browser or games that require internet connection wouldnt work, and while i could stay in skype calls i started before i couldnt start new ones or call anyone. And lastly, the problem seemed to only be happening to my pc, not my brother's who is connected to the same LAN as i am, and whenever i disconnected his cable from the router i seemed to not be getting the problem anymore. After a little time varying from 15 seconds to 5 minutes or more my internet would come back and work as well as always.
In the beginning my internet worked most of the time and rarely this problem would show up, but as time went on it happened more and more until my internet almost never worked properly and i had to call my ISP and some tech guy that i know. Eventually i used the windows internet fix thing, not expecting it to work since it never does, but miraculously it found a service that should be working in my computer but wasnt and once i turned it on the problem seems to be fixed.
But lately a similar problem ... Read more

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.

Hey,
I have Verizon DSL rated for 1Mbps. Lately, when someone hangs up the phone in our house, the internet shuts off, and after about 15 seconds, it reconnects. After this disconnect my internet speed is slowed to 300kbps, and will not speed back up unless the modem is reset. I already called Verizon two times and both times they fixed the problem... till I hung up. They had me reset the modem both times. I have filters on all phones in the house. This just started 2-3 weeks ago, and have had the internet for over a year.
 

A:Internet Slow / Disconnects

u might have a bad or loose filter, you modem could be malfunctioning verison should have helped u better. u might need a tech to check out your problem. i know it costs $$$ but if your phone lines are bad or weak might be another problem your telephone might even be causeing your problem. if it quit now something is different whether u caused it or not. hope this helps you.

I've got AT&T DSL, which is on all the time. Nevertheless, after turning on the computer for the day, if I don't actively use the Internet for a while (about a half hour), I lose my connection. In order to reconnect I've had to restart the computer. What program fluke may be causing the computer to disconnect like this? What can I do to ensure that I stay connected? AT&T says it's not caused by them, and I've verified this to be true. I've contacted Compaq, but the guy in India has no solution. I've run Norton virus scan, Spybot, and Spysweeper, all of which indicate that I'm not infected with any malware. My operating system is: XP updated with Service Pack 2 and all subsequent critical updates.

I just built a new computer recently and it is running great with one big exception, I keep getting randomly disconnected from my wireless internet connection. I do not believe it has anything to do with signal strength because my laptop right next to my rig never has this issue of connectivity. Also seeing as it is a new comp it is not an issue of any malware ect. If i had to guess i would say the wireless card i got is the issue. It was a last minute purchase and cost about 20 dollars. My question is how do I uncover if the wireless card is the culprit and if it is what steps do i take to fix/replace it?
 

A:Random disconnects from Internet

See if there is a newer driver. If so, uninstall the old one through Programs and Features and install the new one. Of course, make sure it is compatible with your version of Windows.

I am a new user an can't seem to find a similar question previously posted. Sorry if this is a duplicate.

1. I recently upgraded hardware and software: new hard drive, DVD/CD burner; XP Pro (clean install).
2. I have a unique ISP -- Communicom Dial Return, i.e. download via cable, upload via dial-up modem. Cable is always on, the actual connection requires the dial-up.

Problem: Internet disconnects at 20 min. no matter if the brouser is in constant use, i.e. downloading updates, etc., email being sent, whatever. Modem log at Diagnostics Tab notes "Hardware hang-up due to lowering DTR" I'm not smart enough to understand what that means.
If I make any change whatsoever to the Internet connection options, my computer will not connect ('unable to establish connection' displayed in dial-up thread.) Can't return to original settings and reconnect...must delete the connection on Internet Tools and reinstall via the Connection Wizard.
There must be a setting somewhere that makes my modem (US Robotics 56K Voice PCI) and XP Pro and Communicomm compatiable and allows me to make normal, typical settings and control how the internet connection performs.

Any thoughts
thx -- rah

So I have Windows 7 and I am connected to a Net gear router with another computer. I constantly (Every Hour) have to reset my modem and router (Unplug It) because it simply stops working. (I get the little triangle with the "!" over the "computer" in the bottom left hand corner. As soon as I reset it, it will be good again for a bit but usually not more than an hour. (Sometimes longer if I am lucky) I have no idea where to begin. I really want this fixed because I play a lot of video games, and not only that my router is upstairs, so I have to run up every time to reset it and its great exercise but its very annoying.

Edit:

ISP: Time Warner

Modem Model Number: SBV5121
Make: Motorolla

Router Model Number: RP6214BDB009145 (Wired Router)

Hi everyone, I unfortunately still use dial up internet. And for a good 6 months or so now whenever I turn on my Lexmark printer it disconnects me and starts to redial the connection.

It never used to do this before. And I haven't switched ISP's or anything like that. I contacted Lexmark about this and they said the problem is my ISP, but again it never used to do this before so I can't imagine what the problem is.

If I turn on my printer before connecting to the internet then it works fine, but if I turn it on during a connection it loses the connection. The printer is a Lexmark X6150 model. I do use it to fax sometimes, and so the phone lines are running through the printer as well as the back of my PC.

If you need more information to help me just ask, thanks.
