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.)

Hi,

I am having a big problem with my internet connection. I connect to the internet through a VPN connection to my university. However, each time I see a video on youtube (or elsewhere), listen streamed music or even talk using Skype, my internet connection disconnects immediately.

I have had this problem with Windows Vista, and now that I have installed Windows 7 the problem is still the same.

So for every kind of streaming my internet connection (through VPN) almost immediately disconnects.

Any hints about this ?

Thanks
 

A:Internet Connection disconnects when streaming (VPN)

did you contact your university help desk? Its possible they have it set to only allow certain types of traffic to pass. Another thing is dropped packets. If you drop too many packet its possible the vpn will drop and since streaming might be using potentially large amounts of bandwidth...

I've been having this problem for a year now. I have tried things to fix it in the past but had no luck and I'm trying again now.

I have a Boxx computer running Windows XP. It's an old computer. When I'm using the internet, if I watch streaming video, there's a good chance the computer will drop the internet connection. It happens also sometimes on it's own (when I'm away from the computer) and sometimes while browsing sites with a lot of images. I can regain the connection only by shutting down my computer and turning it back on. It seems like a memory problem to me, but how can I fix it?

I'm positive it's not a problem with the internet or modem. I just got a new internet service and everything is new but the computer still has this problem. I'd like to be able to watch videos and listen to music without having to turn my computer off and on all the time.

I appreciate any help!

HELLO!
Is there a way to increase the streaming cache/time/size (whatever) for port 4000 that I use with my DLNA server or, for EVERYTHING on said machine? It is a storage box
only with DLNA, FTPD, and all drives shared for the house to access with TVs or PCs etc.. Although, only the DLNA is timing out on me after like 3hours or so.

I'm going to start from the very beginning, and use as much detail as possible, because this is my final hope. I have seriously tried everything. I'm not the most tech smart person but I am willing to try whatever else I am suggested.

I have comcast and a d3 modem. I have a linksys router EA6300 running firmware version 1.1.40.153731

I have a Asus G74sx laptop running windows 7 ultimate 64bit.

I have a Intel Centrilo Wireless N 6150 Wireless adapter

Never had a single problem ever, I play WoW, use ventrillo, have steam open, and constantly browse reddit and youtube. For years no problems.

Two weeks ago i started getting strong interruptions, they would last for about ten minutes, It was primarily when I was in a game of League of legends or streaming a youtube video. I just thought it was me putting to much on my internet as my wife also uses her ipad to watch netflix.

However now it is frustrating me so bad. When I am just browsing sites it will only kick me off occasionally, however if Im connected to ventrillo, or streaming a youtube video its pretty much a sure thing to knock me off.

I first made sure all other devices were working fine and they are. Ipad stays connected, our phones stay online. I reset my modem, and router and called comcast to make sure they didnt see any interuptions on their side and they did not. I have the router about three feet from the modem, the cables are connected fine, and my laptop is only about 4 feet from the router with no walls... Read more

A:Wifi Randomly Disconnects when doing many things, mainly streaming vid

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

It sounds like the laptops has worked just fine on two other networks (friend & service shop). You might try putting the Linksys AC/N router in the N mode only. You might also take your router to your friend's home and test things there. If your router/laptop works while in another home, then perhaps some type of interference has shown up at your place.

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?

It seems that every three or four hours our computer will just lose all connection, even the modem shows we don't have one. We have had four cox repairmen come, and all claimed they had fixed a simple problem. They didn't. So whenever this happens all we can do is wait or repeatedly unplug and plug stuff.

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.

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 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,

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.

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.

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.

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 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!

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 have an Actiontec C1000A modem from centurylink, it is a modem and a router at the same time. We had the internet installed about 3-4 months ago. I have DSL internet with speeds up to 10 mbps. We usually have about 3-4 connections to the router with laptops and phones and ipads. My connection is the only one who that plays games though. Lately in the past month the router will lose connection to the internet for about a minute then reconnects. It's really aggravating when trying to play games then have to start over what i was doing because I got disconnected from my game, I have lost countless hours of game play. Does anyone know what this issue may be? Could it be the too many connections? I have tried turning them off but every now and then it still may do it. The disconnects are pretty random it could be 3 times an hour or once in 3 hours.

I have been having a bizarre problem for months now!

Every time I try access the online BBC Radio Player (http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/radio1) and/or some other online streams my Internet disconnects itself!

The problem seems to be fixed by re-installing Flash player. However, upon a restart the problem comes back!

Any ideas as to why this might be happening?

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.

Whats the problem? How do i fix this?

A:Skype disconnects the internet

Skype is P2P, many ISP's block P2P automatically, could also be the additional Skype P2P traffic filling you bandwidth. Suggest you check with your ISP

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.

Hi,
I have a comcast high speed internet connection. I use a Motorola SB5120 connected to a Netgear WGT624 which feeds to a linksys VOIP router RTP300. I have a Dell PC (XP) connected (wired) to the netgear router and two laptops (one is a Windows 7 beta and other runs a Vista Ultimate) connecting via the wireless router. I never used to have any issues with my internet connection (wired ,wireless) until very recently.

Now, when I start my desktop, the internet works fine for a few minutes (random, usually < 5 mins) and then doesn't connect anymore after. But if I connect my laptop from the same netgear router using a wired connection, everything looks perfect there. I can see that there is something wrong happening with my desktop PC.

The wierd thing about this is that, if I connect to the internet immediately to some heavy duty bandwidth (remote connecting to my office PC) from my desktop, the internet connection remains, but I just cannot connect to any other site. It feels like there is some contention for the available bandwidth. I tried reinstalling the network drivers on my desktop, but did not help.

Any help is very valuable, since this is very frustating.

Many thanks.

Hi there,
I have an Advent 9515 laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2. I connect wirelessly to my router downstairs and all is fine for standard web surfing. The problem arises when I use services such as YouTube and Spotify, or perform a large download. The PC will just stop being connected to the router and the little yellow exclamation mark appears over my networking icon stating limited connectivity. The standard Windows Network Diagnostics tools are useless, telling me to move to another location and turn the router off and on again.
Using device manager I attempt to disable the Wireless Card in order to enable it again, hopefully refreshing it, but this just causes the computer to go unresponsive and requires a reboot.
Also, if I do not do anything to try and solve the problem, when I shut down, Windows says "shutting down" forever and I have to force it. Is there any way to solve this problem I have to put up with?
Also, this happens to no other PC's connecting to the same router

Cheers

Hi all, I searched and couldn't find a problem to this one.

While browsing my broadband connection is reliably disconnected if I type in an invalid webpage (i.e., if I type in abim.org as opposed to www.abim.org) or sometimes when trying to download a file such as the AVS file converter. If I open a different page I am prompted to connect to the internet which is quickly done but what is causing this- or more importantly, how do I fix it?

Thanks so much.

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.

For a while now my Internet has been randomly disconnecting, it disconnects for only a seconds or less it seems, but is very noticeable when i am gaming as it takes a while for the game to reconnect to the servers. I am not sure if it is a problem with my router or computer hardware, as my brother has his computer setup in the same room as mine and we run off the same connection, and he never gets the disconnects that i get. All of my drivers are fully up to date.

System specs(windows 10)(Alll drivers up to date):
Intel Core i5 I5-4590 Haswell 3.3GHZ Processor LGA1150 6MB
GIGABYTE Z97MX-GAMING 5 mATX LGA1150 Z97 DDR3 PCI-E16 PCI-E8 XFIRE/SLI SATA3
Kingston HyperX Fury Memory Black 8GB 4X4GB DDR3-1600 CL10
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 OC 4GB 7.0GHZ GDDR5 2XDVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E
Corsair CS550M CS Modular 80 Plus GOLD-RATE 550W 12V Power Supply
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB SATA 6GB/S 7200RPM 64MB Cache 3.5IN Hard Drive OEM

A:Random disconnects from internet

Howdy MildMeowth,
This might seem counter intuitive, and perhaps a long shot... but I've found that both the Razer and Corsair utilities can cause "things." I know you need both keyboard and mouse functions, but try turning those utilities off while gaming....if it doesn't interfere with with the functional use of those devices for you...it shouldn't. You can always re-enable, but you can use either device without software installation.

Also, if you have the Nvidia Geforce Experience running disable that.
I know for a fact it can hog your boot time, and might be trying to update as you play, even though your drivers are current.
Just a thought, considering your brother has the same connection setup, but not sure if it's the EXACT same setup, or he's running the same stuff in the background...none of which may actually be needed during gaming. So one router for both computers, right?

Does this happen during normal web access, or just during gaming?
