VPN disconnects internet

Q: VPN disconnects internet

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

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.)

For as long as I remember my Lenovo G580 would randomly stop recieving an internet connection from my wifi, leaving it still connected but without the ability to go online. I have been solving this problem by disconnecting and recconecting from the wifi, however this has been a temporary solution as the problem keeps coming back. I know this is a problem with the computer because it never happens with the other lenovo laptops in the house nor the phones connected to the same wifi. Im monitering this post so if you reply expect a response very soonThank you for the help

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 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 problem of being disconnected from the Internet. It usually occurs about the same time at night. I connect, then get kicked off after about a minute. This happens repeatedly. 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. Any ideas on how to solve this? My ISP is no help.

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.

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.

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?

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?

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!

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.

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

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 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.

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 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.

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:

Sometimes when i'm on MSN and Xfire they will both disconnect for no reason. I can re-connect to them as soon as I click connect again. 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.

, please help
 

A:Internet randomly disconnects

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.

I have built a computer recently that continually disconnects from the internet. I can temporarily reconnect by Troubleshooting and results in the following messages:

Problems Found:
1. The connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken (Detected)
2. The default gateway is not available (fixed)

Then, as I said the connection remains for bit, but as I attempt to download from steam the MB/s slowly drops until it hits 0 and then finally loses internet connection.
The signal strength is strong and any other electronic devices can connect without issue.

I've attempted all of the fixes shown in this thread http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...rror-the/c130ede9-757e-4224-9ae8-3cceb82eeb74

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.

Okay So i have a dsl modem that seems to disconnect occasionally when someone calls or when just using the phone or even when im just on the computer i was wondering if there was any way to check any possible way to see if i have a worm virus or anything thats making me have internet issues,its a desktop to...it has been happening for awhile and now all i do is usually go on msn, play online games,vent,teamspeak and what not usual stuff...please help me its really annoying me.
 

A:Internet Disconnects Randomly

Normally with a dsl modem your service provider install a line converter for the user to be able to use internet and phone at the same time without it will occur some problem as yours. It will become like a sort of dial-up connection.

Check if your line converter is still here or that it is not damage. You will see it on your telephone line which will be like a socket containing two cables, one for telephone and one for internet(dsl modem).

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. ?

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.

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 have Bell Sympatico HSE (DSL) (Canada) that goes through a Linksys Wired router. Randomly and consistently over the last 1 or 2 years my connection just decides to pack it up for the day. I'll be right in the middle of something and suddenly pages wont load. I have to turn off the modem and router and let it all reset itself. Sometimes happens before the internet is opened too....

I have a problem with my internet stopping every 10 minutes or so for 10-20 seconds. I have a Windows Xp sp2 running on a HP pavilion laptop. 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?

Well, it's not completely random.

I've had this problem for a while, but recently, I've been getting disconnects when browsing the web or downloading. What (I think) the problem is that my ISP has some anti-piracy protection in place and it's affecting my normal browsing. NOTE: I have never pirated anything.

It's most often that when I'm browsing a site with a lot of pictures from different sources. Namely myspace.

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.

Ok, I am so stumped and hope someone can help. I am Technology Director for a public school system. All of our vista machines began randomly disconnecting from the internet this week. Local network connection is fine but can't connect to the internet. We believe it has something to do with the fact that one of our domain controllers crashed and was removed earlier this week. When the disconnect happens you can disable/enable the connection and it will connect again only to disconnect in a matter of minutes. This happens with wired or wireless. Now here is the wierd thing, if we assign a static ip in our 172 ip range (which is the range of ips in our DHCP server) same problem but if we assign an ip in the 192 range no problem, it stays connected all day. I don't know if this is a related issue or not but I also noticed that occasionally after disable/enable is performed, the local connection and the wireless connections are both named network 4. I noticed this on two of our vista machines at the same time and another time it would read the local connection as the wireless connection (Crazy I know). Our networking administrator worked on this all morning and thought he stumble on a solution. He found traces of the crashed server and deleted them (I think in active directory). It seemed to have fixed it at first. I was able to stay connected for about 2 hours but before the leaving work for the day it began again. I have no problems at home and none of our xp machines are experi... Read more

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 too am having problems with my internet connection disconnecting after about 30 minutes. I am using XP Home. I connect by an antenna on my roof receiving an RF signal (I think) or it might be a microwave signal. Anyway the cable comes down through the wall into my router. I have to power down the router and power it up again to reconnect. Anyone with ideas?

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Thanks for your cooperation.
