Can someone offer me any advice please.

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.)

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. So I am wondering how If I can change modem channels a different way.

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.

I have a Compaq Presario-AMD Athlon 64-3500+-512mb-200gb. Running windows xp sp3, updated and malware clean. I am stuck with dialup connection until [email protected] upgrades our area. I sometimes leave my pc running a download all night. I usually use orbit downloader but some downloads work better with no manager. Since I reinstalled windows my connection gets disconnected at at different times and redials the connection, but only at night when I leave it downloading a large file. In internet connection I have checked "never dial a connection". It is just an annoyance but I would like to fix it. Any help will be appreciated. I forgot to say that I use IE7 and have tried connection keeper ( with same results). Tried firefox several times but it was slower than IE on my pc. Thanks again. Lots of good advice on this site.

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.

This continues for anywhere from a few minutes to an hour before I can stay connected again. I use IE browser. This does not happen during idle times. It happens when I am actively surfing.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Regards,
Roden

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!

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 folks

I have recently started experiencing a problem where my internet connection disconnects when trying to download torrents.

My broadband provider is BT.

My internet connection is fine if I dont open the torrent program but as soon as I do it will disconnect after five or ten minutes. If I power down the home hub router and then back on the connection will reconnect but only for a short period of time.

I was using bitlord and then switched to microtorrent to see if the program was the problem but still see the same issue.

Anybody else have this problem or suggest what the issue could be? Is it BT disconnecting the connection because I am downloading torrents?

Whenever I'm away from my laptop (Dell, Windows XP) for more than a few minutes, it disconnects from the internet, and I have to re-boot to re-connect. This is happening with my current wireless home network, but it used to happen when I had a wired connection. The internet signal strength is excellent.

Is there a setting I need to change, or is there just something wrong with my computer? Is it fixable or do I just need a new one? (I've already tried turning off the various hibernate features.)

A:Laptop Disconnects From Internet

bjbmd, some suggestions:

- since both wired and wireless had a common denominator (loss of wireless), have you checked your isp?
- how much memory do you have? Make sure virtual memory is set efficiently
- run CleanDisk from System Accessories to clear out cache
- defragment your the os drive in safe mode
- make sure you have the latest drivers for your wireless card (check manufacturer's website to update)
- make sure you have the latest firmware for your wireless router (also check manufacturer's website)
- check your cables to ensure they are in good shape
- run a good spyware scan (spybot, ad-aware, or avg-antispyware)

A:My Internet Disconnects Every Hour

Hi Desu,Sorry for the delay, this forum is quite busy right now.I don't see any signs of malware in this log. It is clean.This forum is dedicated to the diagnosis and removal of infections. Since you seem to be connected to the internet through a wireless router, I recommend that you post your problem on The Bleeping Computer Network Forum. Do not post another HijackThis log there, but please mention that your log has been checked and no malware was found.I do have a couple of recommendations for you. All are summed up in this article by Miekiemoes:http://users.telenet.be/bluepatchy/miekiem...prevention.htmlPay special attention to what she has to say about peer to peer downloading. I see you have Bittorrent installed. Also review your Antispyware and firewall programs (if any) in light of her recommendations. Your Kaspersky Antivirus is fine.Cheers,Dave

Hi,Whenever I open OE I lose connection.But connection stays on if connected after opening OE.I did search and the "hang up after send and receive"box is unchecked.I uninstalled and reinstalled OE from my Win 98 SE disc.I have IE 6.0,Please help,Thanks and MERRY X'MAS.
 

A:Opening OE disconnects internet

That can happen if you have an email or news account set to use a specific connection instead of "any available".

Click Tools|Accounts and look at the Connection column.
If you see an email or news account that says anything other than "Any Available", double-click that account and click Connection, then clear the box for always connect using
.

Hey,
Recently, my PC has been randomly disconnecting from the internet every few minutes for about 5-10 minutes.
I'm sure it isn't the router or ethernet cable as I have tried it in my netbook which runs Windows XP and it works fine.
I have performed a virus scan which has found nothing and I haven't changed any settings recently. I connect straight to the router with a ethernet cable.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,

A:Internet disconnects every few minutes

You might want to consider updating the firmware for your router. XP is old school and things have changed since then.

With no ipconfig/all info, no router hardware/model version info and no system specs I can only guess at what the problem might be.

I have a Speedcom+ Broadband Router (RT514AD), connected to a Motorola cable modem and 2 computers (each running Win98SE). Everything works fine for about 1 hour, then my internet connection is lost, and I have to press the reset button on the router, which then sorts it out (but only until the next hour).

I've looked for a firmware upgrade, but can't find find technical support for this product anywhere (it was the cheapest after all!). Is there anything I can do to make the connection more stable?

Hello, the last few weeks my internet is disonnecting every 30 minutes or so.

The things I've tried so far are:
- Up- and downgrade wifi drivers
- Reset my router
- Change the channel on my router
- Change the wpa lease time on my router and disable it
- Turn of the firewall of my router

This problem only happens to my laptop. I can have my mothers laptop next to me and while mine is disconnected hers will still work. My laptop doesn't get hot either and it is running on maximum performance settings.

Also:
Pinging to the router gives a time out (4 packets send, 0 recieved).
Pinging to localhost -n 20 gives 20 packets send, 20 recieved.

Now I'm clueless as this proves I loose connection with my router, however the 2nd ping test tells me my wireless card is ok. So I honestly have no idea what else to try and how to solve this issue.

I'd greatly appreciate your help, thanks.

I'm loving Windows 8 Consumer Preview so far.
However, my internet connection (Cable/LAN/Hikari Fiber) is disconnecting after 5 or so seconds.
I'm using a Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (on an Asus P6T Deluxe V2 Motherboard).

The system is dual booting with Windows 7 and that connection is perfectly OK.

To get it to work again (for 5 seconds) I have to disable and re-enable the controller, and sometimes it seems necessary to delete the connection and set up another one.

Fortunately my connection is fast so I was able to stubbornly update a few small files via Windows Update by reconnecting many times, with a few % progress each time! Non of those updates were related to the connection hardware or this issue though.

So far I've tried (numerous times):

1. (The above update procedure, in case of hardware updates.)
2. Disabling and enabling the controller, and setting up the connection again.
3. (Swapping the drivers with Windows 7's, and then back to the originals.)
4. Re-installing Windows 8
5. Searching Marvell's site for driver updates.
6. Searching Asus's site for updates.
7. (Connection Login and Password are correct)

Points of note:

a. Windows 7 (dual boot) is connecting fine.
b. This is a hobby, so basic stuff should have been covered, but please advise anyway.
c. The timezone, date and time are set correctly.

This motherboard is very popular, and I don't see similar issues online, other than maybe wireless ones.

A:Internet (LAN) disconnects after 5 seconds.

OK. It's finally fixed. I should have thought of this sooner.

1. Uninstall the LAN drivers.
2. Get the MarvellYukon_Ethernet_V111053_Windows7 update drivers from Asus (Windows 7 / LAN).
3. To install them in Windows 8 Consumer Preview, run them in Windows 7 compatibility mode.
(Right click the setup program, choose the compatibility tab, Tick/check `Run this program in compatibility mode for:' and choose `Windows 7' from the pull-down menu.)
4. Hit Apply and/or Enter.
5. Run the program and install the drivers.
6. Reboot.

This is easy for many, but hopefully helpful for some.
Loving Windows 8 Consumer Preview!

Hi,

I'm new here, so bear with me.

Basically, my internet just cuts out, seems random, it's been happening for a while.

For example, sometimes with games in steam, the "server is not responding" message comes up, then the whole internet stops working, for around 5 minutes, sometimes longer, i usually have to reset my router. My ISP is "tiscali" (UK)

If anyone can help me, i will be eternally grateful. if you need any more information, i can post it.

thanks,

Teeps

Hi

Recently every 20-90 minutes or so my internet just suddenly stops working. This is the only the case on one of my computers. I currently have a laptop and a desktop which connect via wireless adaptors. The computer with this problem is connected via a ethernet cable from the router.

I have called my internet provider talktalk, who say there shouldnt be any problems with the internet on their end.
I have done a full virus scan using Avast anti virus and scanned for spyware/malware using Malware Bytes, Spybot: search and destroy,and Ad-Aware

When the internet stops working, and i try to repair the Local Area Connection I get the error "unable to renew ip address"

To try resolve this problem i have tried changing the router from a netgear to a thomsom, but the exact same problem occurs.
I have also tried connecting a wireless adaptor into my computer, with no effect.

After i did some online research i also tried using "winsockxpFix.exe" which again didnt work.

I also followed some online steps to try renew my IP address using the cmd option on run and typing "ipconfig /release" then "ipconfig /renew" It seems to work fine if the internet is currently working, however when it is not running i get the following error:
"An error has occurred while renewing interface Local Area connection : Unable to contact your DHCP sever. Request has timed out"

When I type "ipconfig /all" into the cmd option i get:

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.

I don't know what information I should provide, I can give more information though if it is a specific case. I have already tried disk defrag and disk cleanup, a registry cleanup, and a virus scan on AVG that turned up nothing. I don't know what is wrong, can anyone please help me?

Recently like a few days ago, i've been experiencing weird slowdowns in my internet that has never happened before. For example, usually when i go to youtube or search up stuff on google it's relatively fast, but it's taking longer than usual and i have no idea what's the problem.

This also leads to the fact that sometimes like probably every hour or so i cant access the internet and my MSN disconnects and tries to log in but can't. This remains for a few minutes and then suddenly goes back to normal but still with the slow loading times.

I'm also wondering why in the network connections in the "activity" part of my connection status it sends more than it receives.

As said before this has never happened before and i have no P2P applications running that is causing such slow loadtimes and sometimes disconnecting my internet momentarily

Hi,

I have just restored my XP system to SP2 after a problem with the USB controller. That fixed, Windows decided to update to SP3 which went ahead with no problems.

Now, though, my internet connection (wired LAN) keeps dropping after about 10 minutes. The only way to get it back is to restart. I have installed the latest network card drivers, but still get "internet explorer cannot display the webpage". I have tried with IE 7 and Safari 3. Renewing the DHCP lease and/or setting the DNS to a manual address do not solve the issue either.

I can still ping hosts on my local network and on the internet like Google, Apple etc and get a full set of replies. However, when i try to ping this machine from another on my network, it fails.

Even though my connection is apparently not there, the LAN status icon says it is still connected. Repairing the connection doesn't affect it.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks.
Joe.

I have two computers hardwired to a router along with one that accesses the router by a wireless connection. One of the computers hardwired to the router disconnects from the internet exactly every ten minutes and I have to restart to be able to connect again. This happens consistently every time. All the other computers work fine and have no problems.

Can anyone please help. I have not been able to figure out what it is. I tried connecting through the wireless card on this computer and the same thing happens. It is running Windows XP Professional.
