Internet Disconnects Constantly

Q: Internet Disconnects Constantly

Windows 7 | Rosewill Wireless N PCI-E Adapter RNX-N250PCe | Motorola Modem | Cisco Router |
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

Preferred Solution: Internet Disconnects Constantly

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I assume you have reset your router and/or modem already?

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

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'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?

I have ATT Uverse Internet, and an att uverse gateway, and on my computer the wireless keeps randomly disconnecting. Over the past few weeks it has started doing this more and more often, for instance today I can't get connection for more than 5 minutes before it disconnects. However, the wireless works on my other computer, Xbox, and iphone, so I'm not sure what's going on. Any help would be greatly appreciated

A:Wireless Internet Keeps Constantly Disconnects

Read other 13 answers

I'm constantly getting disconnected on my Comcast Internet. (It's my primary connection, but I do have a VZW BroadbandAccess as a secondary and for when I commute/go on the road, etc.) This has always happened, but mostly stopped after I switched to a 5-2200mhz 4-Way splitter about 6 months ago. Before that, the disconnects would be like every ten days. Now, it's happening every few hours. Sometimes it resolves itself, sometimes I have to disconnect and reconnect the modem from the cable line (powercycling doesn't do it). My cable modem is a real pain to get to, being at the bottom of a rack in my crawlspace. It's on a cheap 650VA UPS with the router and some switches.

It always fails on establishing send channels. Can tell that from the logs. (Which I can't seem to access anymore, but that's what it always used to be).

Modem: SB5100
ISP: Comcast, Chicago.
Router: WRT54G v. 6 on DD-WRT, but it doesn't really matter. Does the same thing when connected to my RouterBoard but that's not setup the way I want it yet .
Other Stuff: Airport Express as AP/Print Server/Speakers with DHCP turned off.

Should I just order a new modem? Any recommendations? Would a bidir cable amplifier before the splitter help?

So my internet has been on and off disconnecting since October. Every now and then it'll disconnect for commonly 1-10 seconds but also up to 60 seconds some times. Obviously, this is really annoying and I haven't been able to enjoy my online activity as such and I hope someone can help me diagnose the issue.
This is assumed to have started happening after my family upgraded from 25mbp/s internet to 75mbp/s.
First off, my symptoms:
It'll not happen weeks at a time and then start up again, I had a week where I was non-stop d/cing and also days here and there where every 10 minutes I would d/c.
I think I've tried virtually everything to fix so that's why I'm now consulting r/techsupport for some more advanced solutions.

Also I've noticed when my internet disconnects my CPU and GPU also spike down, but I think this is due to me playing youtube videos and streams, and since it doesn't have to process those then it obviously uses less processing power.

What I've done:
Call my ISP, this was in November. And he said we had millions of CRC errors so he did a lot of rewiring, changed our internet into separate 5G and 2.4G networks, and got us a new router.
However, the issue persisted. But due to the CRC errors we determined it's a physical issue.
Replaced the switch
Tried some different ethernet cords (although they aren't new)

For the past 3 months or so I've had trouble with my internet and have tried recently to fix it since it annoys me insanely.
Here's my setup:
- Sony Vaio FE890 laptop with Vista Home Premium 32-bit, service pack 2.
- Router is a Verizon FiOS MI424WR
- A desktop is connected through wire and doesn't experience the problems.

Here's the problem:
My wireless internet constantly disconnects and then reconnects right away for seemingly no reason. I can't find a pattern, sometimes I have no dropouts for 6 hours, sometimes it happens every 20-30 seconds for a few minutes.

I have tried the following:
- Updating drivers for both the router (there was none) and my wireless network card.
- Changing router channels to 1, 6, 11.
- Changing to static IP and back.
- Scanning my computer for viruses with Security Essentials and Spybot, removing any bad stuff it found.
- Doing diagnostics through the router, doing a ping test to my computer, but it just says "test failed" and doesn't help me any further.

None of that helped and the situation remained the same.
From the tons of stuff I've read online, I know a few things that could be wrong, but I'm not sure.

- There's the wireless phones, but the dropouts are completely independent from whenever a phone call is being made or received, there's no pattern. I don't know if that means anything or if it doesn't matter.

- I am about 100 feet away from the r... Read more

A:Wireless internet disconnects and reconnects constantly

when your internet drops out, does the router still have an internet connection, i.e. is the router still getting an IP address from your ISP? since you said that the desktop is hard-wired into the router and doesn't experience this same problem, i'm assuming this is the case. it seems as though the problem lies more in the wireless connection and not the router or your ISP.

you may need to get a wireless expander because that distance seems fairly long.

a new network card or a wireless USB may help matters, but it still seems like a long distance.

I have been having a problem with my DSL constantly disconnecting. I like to play an online game called Rumble Fighter. That's pretty much the only game I play online. It used to stay connected pretty good, maybe DC'ing once in a while, but lately it disconnects about every 5-10mins. I can't stay connected and it's getting anonying. Here is some info. about my setup:

DSL thru Verizon
Modem Westell /model #327W15
Vonage as phone company

PC specs.
Windows Vista 32
HP 8400F
AMD Phenom 9500 Quad Core 2.20GHz
3GB of DDR+2 RAM
720GB HD

We have also had problem with Vonage dropping calls. I have have contacted them and we have done everything they can on their end to fix it, so I am thinking Verizon is the problem.

I also ran a Line quality test and here is the results I got:

Also ran DR.Ping from that same site which gives me a result of 80.4 which I don't know what that means and it says the following:
(Sorry, 52 pings gave errors or timeouts. 85 from 103 IPs were reachable.)

Any help is greatly appreciated. Should I contacted Verizon? I am on the West Coast if that matters.


A:DSL constantly disconnects, help.

Read other 7 answers

Right, so before this DSL was rarely stable, it was incredibly slow. I solved the problem by directly connecting the modem (a Westell 6100) to the phone jack, as from what I've seen, the three way splitter that was used killed the connection speed. Now the results from doing this was the internet speed being increased sevenfold. The connection I have is from Verizon, not really too sure on the connection, but if it helps, the top speed I have now is about 70 kb/s. I've taken the line quality test from DSLReports, but from what it says, everything is apparently good. Another thing I've noticed too is that the Internet and Ethernet lights on both the router (A Linksys WRT300N) and the modem are constantly flashing. If anyone could help me with this, I'd be grateful, and the link to the test is here. http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2537166

I have a new laptop with a built in 802.11G adapter. It connects to my router, but then disconnects periodically, sometimes it reconnects right away, other times I have to turn the wireless adapter off and back on before it reconnects. Any advice would be helpful. Is it possible it has something to do with SP2 as this is the first time I've ever used it and this is the first time I'm having problems.

A:Wireless disconnects constantly.

SP2 and the wireless adapters built in connection utility on alot of models do not play nice so usually you have to pick one or the other to use. As well you will probably want to check the channel your on as something else may be causing interferance. Have you tried your laptop in other wirelesas areas? You may want to do that to have piece of mind that your card and configuration of your laptop is working properly.

When on Windows 7 (release 7100, 64 bit), the wireless internet disconnects after/during downloading a file, game downloads updates, or even when playing an online game. The internet still appears to be connected to my network however a message mentions "limited access". If I disconnect from the network, I am unable to reconnect to the network (error comes up).

This issue does not occur when using Ubuntu (dual boot) or on other computers connected to the internet (using Win XP/Vista). And does not occur when directly connected to the internet.

I also have noticed somewhat of an issue that may be relating to this problem. My network adapter is Belkin Wireless G Desktop Card F5D7000. However, Windows 7 recognizes the network card as "Dell TrueMobile 1300 WLAN Mini-PCI Card"

Thanks for any help~

A:Wireless Constantly Disconnects

I've got the same exact problem. I have a Rosewill RNX-N2X wireless adapter. My computer does the same thing - the wireless connection comes up with limited access and it won't connect again.

Along with this though, when this happens, my CPU starts getting eaten up to almost 90% usage by something. When I try to shut down, it just locks at the shutting down screen, and I have to hold in the button.

The connection works most of the time when just surfing the web, but when making my account for this site it decided to disconnect. I've tried changing the wireless security, channel, drivers, etc... When I try a wired connection, the connection stays fine under heavy load, so it must be something with wireless drivers or something..Please help!

Edit: Also, my router is a D-Link DIR-655, but I don't think it's the problem. A Windows 7 laptop does not have any problems with this using the same router.

Edit 2: Nevermind, wireless disconnects even when surfing web after about 3-4 minutes, but downloads stop it instantly.

I've had Verizon DSL for a while now, and I'll be honest, its the worst service we have ever gotten.
It goes down consistently, and by the time i call Verizon Tech Support, internet seems to stabilize and they say there is nothing wrong with my internet.
I did a line test at dslreports and got the following result.

Looks just fine, but what explains the constant disconnections?
Oh, their 24/7 Tech Support lines seemed to have been closed for a long time now as well. Also, when i try calling corporate, they put my on hold then hang up.

Sooo, what do you guys think?

Hi all, I recently bought my first laptop (HP Streambook) and it's fine except for it constantly disconnecting from my wifi?
It only does this in my room (note that every other device I own can still pick up and keep a consistent connection in here), and when it picks up the connection, it only has 2-3 bars. It'll then go to 5 bars for about 30 secs, then disconnect completely. When I attempt to reconnect it may not work at all, or appear there with 2-3 bars again. I have reset the network card more times than I care to mention and any amount of troubleshooting won't help. I'm at my wit's end, any ideas?

A:WiFi constantly disconnects?

Welcome to the forum!

Honestly, not the top of the line when it comes to notebooks/laptops. Can't rule out that it simply has a weak wifi adapter and antenna. What adapter does it have? May need to update the drivers. How far are you from the router and are there walls in between?

Also be sure the adapter is not allowed to sleep and power saving mode is not enabled.

I CANNOT take this anymore. Over the past two weeks our connection has progressively gotten worse and worse, to the point now where I'm lucky enough to stay online 15 minutes at a time... Our ISP is AT&T and before this, our net used to get easily disconnected by a phone call (we are to get this problem in itself solved soon with filters). The modem/router is connected to my mother's computer downstairs. She never seems to have any problems with connectivity or at least not as much as I do.
I'm running wireless in the room right above her, and I have never had this bad of a problem until recently. Any wireless connection upstairs drops constantly and becomes horribly slow or disconnects completely (it is still connected to the router). We called our ISP and they claimed it was not a problem on their end. The tech support was actually very thorough and he did everything he could, from tests to helping me reset our modem back to factory settings in case there was anything possibly wrong with the modem itself- which is not that old, 1-2 years give or take. I've tried multiple times to disconnect the modem and reconnect to restart the system (which used to work, this issue is something completely different). I updated my wireless networking card driver and the problem persists... I don't know what else to do and my patience has worn thin on this issue. It's very bizarre and I have tried to search for anything similar but to no avail... PLEASE if ... Read more

Most are wired.

The prob is between 2 wireless computers.
If I run both comps with windows xp, all is fine.
But 1 of the pcs is often booted from a live (Puppy) Linux cd.
When I boot using Linux, both of these pcs start dis/reconnecting to the network, every few minutes.
The nics both have different macs, & they are both assigned their own static ips correctly.
Another wireless pc on the network is not affected.

Any ideas why the disconnects & how to solve this prob?

After years of my laptop running flawlessly, I've started having major problems connecting to my router/the internet.
I noticed the problems started happening after I did a huge 14gb download..
My computer constantly but randomly disconnects for random intervals of time. If I'm lucky it'll connect just fine, but once it disconnects, it'll most likely not work for quite some time.
The other computers/cellphones/etc aren't having any problems with connecting, and it's only my laptop.
Sometimes it seems to go on a "Identifying...(Name) No internet access" loop, or it connects to the router, but I get no internet access. And whenever I troubleshoot it, it never really helps anything, and I never get a consistent reason as to why it isn't working.

Ok I have a Dell Latitude D600 with a Intel Pro/wireless lan 2100 mini pci adapter internal on my computer. The router is a linksys wrt54gs v7 router. The laptop will constantly disconnect and reconnect from the router mostly when I am downloading something. Sometimes the network will lock up and disappear completely under View network connections. The problem only occurs at my GF/s apartment. And i know its not poor signal in the walls cause she just moved and have the same problems in the new place. I have the same make and model router at my place and have no problems. I also have no problems when I connect to the wireless network at my school. I also have no problems with the network using my girlfriends laptop . Also my ps3 has no problems connecting wireless to the router either, so i'm pretty sure the problem is not the router but is the laptop but why only having problems with this router is really puzzling me.

I'm at a loss of what to do , i updated the firmware on the router, updated the drivers on my laptop and still no solution. I also changed the router's channel to one that wasn't being used by any other networks in the area.

I've never had this issue before with my Linksys Wireless-G PCI adapter model WMP54G. Its not much of a big problem but it is annoying! Connection is great at Excellent but sometimes it just disconnects and then automatically re-connects. It doesn't matter if I'm in the middle of loading a webpage or using the connection in any way either. I've checked for radio frequency interference and there is none in its area. The router is an Actiontec. Also whats frustrating is the connection speed even with an Excellent connection. It tops out at 54Mbps but sometimes drops to 12Mbps or 18Mbps even when there isn't heavy connection activity and the connection runs very slow. Google and web searches have not been successful. Any ideas?

We have a problem with the connection to our server. The server disconnects randomly from minutes to hours all day. I am at a remote location and connect via logmein to a local pc at the servers physical location to remotely control and connect to the server. A month or so ago the connection would drop every few minutes. The staff at that location replaced the switch and had the ISP tech check out the router. No problems were found. I think it is a problem with the server itself but don't know what it could be. Typically I can go through the login process and reconnect. I'm sorry I can't be more specific about the equipment since it is 40 miles away. Any suggestions on troubleshooting? Remotely?

I have reformatted my computer and installed multiple new driver from the Asus website. When wired into the router the internet works perfectly. But wireless even directly next to it does not work. Their are 2 other laptops in the house neither which have had any problem dropping connections. Another thing I fine odd is that my computer is perfectly fine on my wireless at school. I have tried resetting the router and multiple router setting but still nothing. Renew release Ip, Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Wifi will constantly disconnects on my home network

After two months, I have reached the end of my rope.Even with the latest driver and BIOS updates, my 730 constantly loses wifi.It can vary from simply saying everything is connected with no connection to connected with no internet to no connections available.A reboot solves the issue for a time, but it will start again.Yes, I have followed every troubleshooting step on the internet with the same results.I have finally lowered myself to looking for a replacement PCI Express Mini Card for Wireless LAN for a brand new computer.  The "white list" is blank under Item 5 which should list compatible WLAN Modules.Tech Support is worthless as they try to blame it on my home wifi.  I have 2 wifi's at home and one at work and the issue persists.I am writing this by tethering my laptop to my phone as this is the only way it will stay connected long enough to post.If anyone knows a compatible WLAN Module aside from the Realtek, please let me know.

I have a wireless home network set up with 3 desktop computers and 3 laptops. Most of the computers have no problems, but one gets disconnected almost immediately if the network is left idle for a short time (usually takes less than a minute). The only way I can stay connected is to constantly download a file, browse online without stopping, play a game online, etc. If I stop, Windows (XP SP2) still displays the network as connected (usually with Excellent or Very Good Signal Strength), yet I cannot do anything online. I can't even successfully ping the router (a Netgear WGT624 v2) until I disconnect from the network, then reconnect. Simply clicking repair does not fix anything.

My network adapter is an Airlink101 AWLH3026 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter. I have all power saving options disabled, so I don't believe the adapter is turning itself off. I previously had an Airlink101 router, but moved and it got lost, so I now have the Netgear router. I never had any problems connecting the other router. If I use my laptop in the same room as the desktop, it has no problems, so I don't think the location of the computer is a problem.

Any suggestions of what could be causing this problem on this computer? Thanks in advance, and feel free to ask any questions for further clarification...

Hi, Ever since I updated my wifi driver to 2024.0.2.101... (release on 17 Jan 2019), my WiFi connection constantly disconnects from my network and I have to manually disable then re-enable it from device manager or from network adapter windows in order to connect again. But after some time(in the same day), it will disconnect again. I already tried many things:uninstall and delete my WiFi driver from device manager, then install the driver againFresh install my windowsuncheck the box for "Allow computer to turn off device to save power" on WiFi card propertiesSet the power settings of the card to "maximum performance"Switch my wireless router with the spare oneNo luck after all of that. The one thing I haven't tried is to revert back to the old WiFi driver, because I don't have the file anymore and I can't find it on the driver page for my Yoga. Is there an archive page for old driver?

I've been trying to use my IPv6 as default over IPv4. After manually entering in the IP address into the adapter under IPv6 protocol, it would connect for 5 minutes before disconnecting itself. I would have to constantly redo just to keep the connection up. How can I use my IPv6 without constantly disconnecting, is there something I'm doing wrong?

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 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.

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.

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

Hi LA314 , 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
You may try unchecking power saving features on WLAN properties under device manager and likewise place any similar roaming aggressiveness / tendency to highest .
Update us how it goes.

My internet disconnects every once in a while, usually for 5-10 minutes. Restarting fixes the problem. Whilst my friend who is connected to the same router never has this problem.

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.

I am using CISCO Anyconnect. But regardless of what VPN, what happens is that connecting to VPN disconnects me from Internet which doesnot happen with XP.

Is there a solution for this with anyone, please.

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.
