Q: Help internet disconnects please

Hello everyone, I'm running a windows 7 operating system and I need help I've been having this issue for a few weeks. Usually when I download something big or stream my internet on my PC specifically will go out and I cannot get it back unless I restart my pc I have tried ipconfig/renew and I get the unable to contact DHCP.

Now saying that, I have tried other methods that don't work at all however my wifi works perfectly on my phone and other devices in the household and it is only my pc. I am connected via Ethernet as well but I also sometimes use a wireless adapter however have not experienced the internet go out using the adapter but for network adapter I have updated drivers, tried different ports as well as using different cables and none of those have helped I've looked up many solutions and none seem to work please help thanks

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.)

I am having an issue with frequent media disconnects. Upon booting my system, browsers do not connect to the internet. A restart fixes the problem for a while and the system eventually disconnects again. I have hardwired cable and supplier provided cable modem. The system says I am connected but browsers don't function until a soft restart. My PC is for personal use and is owned by me. I have recently added Spybot AV and previously used Windows Defender. McAfee in the distant past. None of them show much and if they do and the item is fixed, I still experience the same media disconnects.

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.

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?

Hey guys,

As soon as I connect my VPN it disconnects the internet. I'm using a desktop with windows 7, connected to wifi via a Netgear 4600 router. 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. I already looked online and didn't find anything that was helpful.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

My internet randomly disconnects for half a second. For instance, most of the time I have ventrilo and mIRC open, and sometimes (a lot of the time) an online game (TF2, CS etc) My internet will disconnect me from all of them at the same time, then I try to get back it and it lets me, so it seems its only disconnecting for like 1 second, then its back on.

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!

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 verizon dsl. I open internet explorer, surf for about 15 minutes and all of a sudden i lose my connection. I try to log back on but it will not let me. I reboot and I can get back on for another 15 minutes and it disconects again. I unplugged my modem this time and plugged it back in and I was able to get back on the internet.

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!

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.

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.

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,

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!

I use the computer about twice a week and tends to be on for about 8 hour sessions, during which time internet is typically lost 1-3 times. Turning the router on and off re-establishes connection. The Windows troubleshooting software says "The default gateway is not available" whatever that may mean. The router is a 2-3 year old netgear cabled model, but worked prefectly with previous vista computers - problem only began when I switched to windows 7.

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.

Another thing which also happens is I will be playing World Of Warcraft and that will disconnect also. But, say if i'm in World Of Warcraft and on MSN and Xfire at the same time, MSN and Xfire will disconnect but WoW will continue to run ok. Or WoW will disconnect and MSN and Xfire will continue to run normally. It's really annoying as I keep having to reconnect. If the programs disconnect I can still view internet ok so the internet is still connected.

I use a Linksys WRT54GS. I have 2 Computers wired to it. If MSN and Xfire go off on the Computer I use they will disconnect on the other computer also.

Just guessing, but if those services automatically disconnect if they get no signal from the other end within a certain time period then maybe you (your internet connection) don't have enough bandwidth to use more than one at a time.

Now, I've searched high and low for a solution to this problem and seem to have found one that works for now but I just want to be on the safe side:

My internet is connected through a wireless router.
It's been working fine until recently.

The problem is that for some reason ONLY THE INTERNET stops working. I'm still connected to the wireless network with perfectly fine signal strength. This happens off and on every 5-10minutes and makes doing anything on the internet a nightmare. To solve the problem, I quickly restart my wireless modem but obviously there had to be a better solution.

I've read countless posts about the same problem but it's never been answered to satisfaction, however one post had the problem "fixed" when the user re enabled his LAN card. Surprisingly this seems to have worked for me. But I'm not too sure why, or if somehow, by luck I've managed to remain connected for a long time.

Please explain?

A:Internet frequently disconnects itself

DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol) needs to be enabled in internet properties. Verify that it is.

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)
Make: Net Gear

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 on a desktop that is connected to a Linksys WRT54G router using a wired connection. I have AT&T ADSL. After an hour or so of use I am unable to browse the internet, use AIM, or anything of the sort. However, my local area connection status is still connected. The computer that is directly connected to the modem does not have any problems, along with the laptop that is connected to the router by a wireless connection. I have tried using the ipconfig /flushdns command, but it didn't work. The only method that has worked for me is restarting my computer. If you need more information I would be happy to provide it.
 

A:Internet Randomly Disconnects

Update the firmware on the router? Get that from the Linksys site. If the update still doesn't work. Go and get yourself another router. Because you already tested a direct connection from the modem to the PC and it worked. But it doesn't work through the router.

So re-flash the router firmware and try it again. Still doesn't work then well replace the router or return back to where you got it from but you'll have to restore the original firmware state.

Hello,

I'm having a problem with my internet.. it started a week ago.. here's what happens: I suddenly lose connection for about a minute, and then it comes back for 5 minutes or so, then disconnects again.. then it comes back again and works for about 2 hours or so, and then cycle restarts.. the disconnecting happens 5-8 times per day and it's really getting on my nerves :< I dunno what's wrong, I talked to my ISP (Vodafone) 3 times, and they said everything is fine on their end, they even reconfigured my router like 2 times or so, and checked the phone lines and there's no breaking up or anything.. so I dunno what's really happening.. it happens to all of my devices (1 PC wired, 3 laps wireless), everytime I see this little "caution" sign on my connection I get really frustrated.. can anyone help? :<

I'm guessing that it's either something from my router/cables (the main cable which connects to router).. or the ISP has something... <beep> up.

Any thoughts?

Thanks 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.

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.

Um, I do have internet that runs perfectly but for some reason..after a good while on the internet, it disconnects and i have to reboot just to get a connection everytime. I don't know what is going on but it gets on my nerves. I'm working on a bunch of projects that need access to the internet but i can't finish them with the internet giving up on me everytime i need it. Is there anything i can do to fix this?

First, try another browser to see if this behavior occurs there. This'll let us know if it's a browser issue or not. Here's a link to a nice free browser (Firefox) that I use: http://www.mozilla.com/

My internet disconnects itself after 19 seconds of being connected, then it reconnects itself after being disconnected for a few seconds. I am using XP and an ethernet cord. At home (at college right now), when I use the internet I use a wireless router which works perfectly.

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?

I have a very odd problem with my internet. My internet seems to disconnect randomly at times or when I am doing too much at once. When it disconnects it says it can't find any networks and it shows this icon:
I am using Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit. This just suddenly started happening back in June and it never did it before then. To get my internet back online again, I have to either restart my computer, or put it on sleep and awaken it. This seems to be connected with another problem I have when watching online videos from YouTube or another site where it will stutter my whole computer for about 2 seconds while watching them (but if the videos are fully loaded, they don't seem to stutter anymore).

So, after a few weeks, it really started to bother me, so I decided to just reformat my computer and get a fresh install. I was sure that would fix the problem, but I was wrong and the same thing still happens. My computer is hardwired into the router and I have Verizon FIOS. The other computers in my house that are also hardwired into the same router do not have this problem at all.

Another weird thing is, if I am voice chatting with someone and I am watching a YouTube video at the same time, and that YouTube video stutters, that is an instant disconnection from the Internet. And last night it disconnected when I had a few tabs open and was loading a YouTube video and downloading something at the same time. So, I assume that it just overloads or something and ju...

A:Internet Disconnects When Overloaded?

Well, I'd change the cable and the port on the router you connect to first. If that doesn't do it, you may want to consider a replacement NIC for that machine.

I use HughesNet with a HN7000S modem and over the past few weeks, my internet disconnects at midday (12pm, 1pm), stays out for hours, and usually returns by 4pm or 5pm. This only happens every few days and usually when it is hot outside (ex. right now it's 80+ degrees outside, yesterday was the same).

The only lights on the modem that are on are the LAN and power lights. Transmit, receive, and system are off. I can access our modem's IP address and it is saying that our satellite signal strength is only 29, a minimum of 31 is needed for the internet to function correctly.

I have tried turning the modem and router on and off, hard resets, restarting all of our computers, reinstalling my wireless adapter, etc. and nothing is working. I am wondering if something could be wrong with the positioning of our satellite or if something is blocking our signal for several hours a day, but I don't understand why it is happening only when it is hot outside. I'm wondering if anyone has any idea of what might be causing this?

I have Windows 7 and use Firefox if it matters- but this is also happening on Vista and XP.

That would seem to be all you need to know to not worry about the router or computers. Maybe the heat changes the orientation of your receiver enough to make a difference, but I suggest calling your satellite company about this issue.

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.

Hi All,

I am facing a strange problem. Every 10 minutes or so, my network connection just stop accepting the data packets. I have to use the "repair network" option and then everything runs fine again. This problem had starte d to occur recently. My guess was that this is something to do with my internet service provider but now I am starting to think whether some virus or trojan is controlling as the "connection repair" works pretty well for me.

Please help me out. Thanks.

Heres my problem, it has persisted for the past 3-4 months or so.

Randomly, but more frequently when i am gaming (WoW, Counter strike, Ventrilo, Warcraft III), my cable completely disconnects my internet and telephone (Optimum online & Voice)

The modem itself stays on but the lights for DS, US, and Online go out for 30 secs to a minute then reconnects and my internet is fine for the next 30 minutes or so until the same thing happens again.

I have switched out modems since it happened, no change.
I have switched out routers (upgraded from a WRT54GS to a WRT310N), no change.


I have seen you guys do some remarkable stuff with Hijackthis and such, if you could help me now with this problem it would relieve a lot of grief.

Thanks for your time

Hi

Just out of interest have you contacted your ISP in case it is a fault with their equipment. ?
