Preferred Solution: Internet disconnects when streaming (VPN)

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

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

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

Hi,

I 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!

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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?

Hey guys,

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?

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.

A:Internet Disconnects

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.

Hi All
I have been having internet disconnects every since I have had VISTA. It is the same that used to occur in WIN ME & 98. It happens when you spend a long time surfing on one web site. There was a fix for this problem then and I have forgotten it. It is not my server as I have another computer with WIN 98SE and it does not happen. I have to cycle my DSL modem off & on to reconnect. I am connected through a router to a second computer and to the modem and the second computer stays connected. The internet icon (lower right display) will indicate local only is connected.
Any help would be great. Forum

A:Internet Disconnects

If you're using a laptop or server, the network card may be configured to go into power saving mode releasing the IP address after a set amount of time of non-activity.

Which version of Windows Vista are you using? Vista is known to have plenty of networking issues on it's own so it may be worth searching Microsoft's KB (Knowledge Base) at www.microsoft.com if you're familiar with it.

Also your computer system mentions a Dell E-520 which appears to be a standard desktop PC, would you be able to confirm this?

Finally, if you could post the results of an "ipconfig /all" while the network is connected and then when it becomes unavailable, this would help troubleshoot the problem.

Regards,
Roden

Hi,

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 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!

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.

When I turn on the Internet (I have a modem), it works fine until I turn other programs on then the Internet basically turns off, but the computer says I'm still connected to the Internet. Why is this doing this and why is the Internet turning off?

If I'm downloading something off the Internet say a game demo or a game update the Internet would just turn off like I said before and then I would have to disconnect and then reconnect and try redownloading and sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't.

I found a pattern or it's just coincidence, but when the downloading box isn't the main thing selected for a while the Internet turns off. Someone please help and don't tell me to ask my ISP he's the other word for donkey.

Hello, I just got a new computer and I'm having internet problems. I used to use an old XP desktop with direct connection and it stayed connected, used my vista laptop with direct connection and it stayed connected, and now with my new W7 desktop the internet does not stay connected. It just disconnects and reconnects in a split second. This interferes while I'm playing games (3 different games), it'll tell me I have lost connection, and when I check my internet connection it says I'm connected. Sometimes I see the little internet connection icon on the bottom say X then a little loading circle then back online in a second. It interferes when I'm streaming also. It happens every 10-30 min or so and it gets REALLY annoying. Anybody have similar problems? Any way to fix?

So my internet recently has been acting weird, not for just one laptop, but for all of them, The only thing that seems to not disconnect is the computer hooked up to the routers. I thought it was time for a new router so I bought two new ones to replace the old ones, so I did. They were replaced but the problem still continued! I updated the router firmware and it would fix it temporarily, but after a day it started again.

if your using a usb modem that is powered by the usb port then likely the connection will drop due to poor quality modem
if your using ethernet port then it may be the email browser causing the session to drop check settings .

Hi, I'm having a problem with the internet. I'm running windows xp and I am connected to a NETGEAR router, but that doesn't matter much, because I tried connected right from my modem to my computer, bypassing my router, and it still disconnects, so it's not the router. Every hour my connection to the internet just shuts off and comes back on almost instantly, maybe 5 seconds. So lets say I get on my computer at 11:27 AM it will cut off at 12:27 PM, 1:27 PM, 2:27 PM, etc. But, if I come on my computer at 11:55 AM, then it will cut off at 12:55 PM, etc.

It comes back on right after. This isn't a problem when it comes to browsing the web and whatnot. It affects my gaming, streaming, and downloading greatly though. When I'm in an online game, I always disconnect at the hour.

Can anyone help me fix this problem? Or explain to me what the problem actually is?

I have tried going into my NIC and un-checking all the options in the power managment tab, still doesn't work. My lease expires 1 day from when it got it, not every hour.

Please help. Thanks.

i have a similar problem here too, the internet connection gets cut off from time to time. im with virgin media, using their latest cable modem. the modem connects to a wireless router D-Link DIR-615. then 3 computers connect to the network wirelessly. it's just very odd to see the browser cannot locate pages constantly...

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.

About every 15 minutes or so the web will stop working for me for about a minute. For instance I'll be browsing YouTube and a page will fail to load, but if I refresh a minute later everything is fine again. Strangely other things work just fine, for instance if I'm playing games online I never get kicked off and my connection icon never shows any problems.

I have tried all three major browsers, and my ISP can't see a problem. I've actually had this problem two other times but it seemed to just go away eventually.

Any idea what could be going on?

I have a Netgear Nighthawk. I noticed when someone is downloading something the random disconnects happen every 2-3 minutes. When there is no downloading occuring the interenet will cut out ever 35-45 minutes. Each disconnect will last anywhere from 5-10 seconds. So its obviously not a problem with the cables.. maybe someone with too much traffic going into the router which is causing it to give up on itself? Also when the discconnects happen it isnt only on my end. It happens to everyone using the internet.
 

A:Internet Disconnects repeatedly

That does sound like a router issue
Turn off the route/modem for 15mins

switch back on and see if the problem still occurs

if it does you could try resetting the router - should be a reset option on the back of the box

do you have an exact model of which Netgear Nighthawk you have

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.

This started a couple months ago on my HP laptop, Vista Home Premium, 1g of RAM.
I can update 8.0 AVG, Super-antispyware, and spywareblaster and everything updates with no problems. I then, or I start first with, it don't matter, the AD-Aware and halfway through I get the dis-connect notice. And more than once lately. Now this only happens with the Lavasoft, but I have been checking if anyone else is getting this. Anybody got an idea.

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
Kingston HyperX Fury 240GB SSD SATA3 SandForce SF2281 2.5in Solid State Disk Drive

In the background i am always running:
Razer synapse (for my mouse)
Corsair utility engine (for keyboard)
intel rapid storage
McAfee antivirus
one drive

Ive taken many steps to try and solve the problem: Set it so that my computer cannot turn off the network adapter to save power, Switched from cat 5e to cat 6 ethernet cable, Ran antivirus/antispyware (nothing found), swapped ethernet ports (bought a network adapter that plugged into PCI-e), fl...

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?

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

I have a 1 MBPS Broadband Internet connection with perfect speed at all times, however, since a couple of weeks, I am facing this weird problem:

Every 2-3 hours (more sometimes), my perfectly fine Internet suddenly disconnects for around 20-30 seconds then starts working perfectly. It cannot even be noticed because there is no "disconnected" sign on the Local Area Connection icon in the taskbar but it becomes extremely problematic while playing online games,downloading things, transferring files,etc. because it just disconnects me everytime and reconnects after 30 seconds and creates a mess. Also, I've noticed my IP address (last 2-3 digits) keeps changing after every disconnection.

I've complained to my ISP several times and they are not doing anything about it. I'm not even sure about whether it is a problem at their end or my end.

Any help is deeply appreciated. Here's a screenshot of my IP address' PING when it disconnects:

Hi there.My dial up connection is always disconnecting but the most annoying thing is I am having to resart my pc every time it happens.For some reason the pc doesn't recognize that the connection has been severed and says it is still connected.The internet icon is still showing.If I try and reconnect it will say the modem is in use which it isn't.Just before this happens the toolbar display,for the lack of a better word sort of spazzes out.Any thoughts.Thanks a lot.

Hi

I put Windows 7 Pro 64bit on my computer about 2 weeks ago and I'm using a Belkin wireless USB adaptor to connect to the Internet.
I am connecting via Windows and NOT a 3rd party utility.

Some days the wireless connection is solid, but the majority of the time, the wireless drops and I have to reconnect it to the network.
This can happen once or several times during the day and it's pretty annoying, especially when playing games.

The router is in the next room and the signal strength is full.
When using this adaptor on XP Pro with the Belkin utility, I never had any wireless drops and the connection was solid all the time.

I've tried:
-Updating the USB adaptor drivers, but they're already up to date
-Setting the WLAN AutoConfig startup type to Manual and starting the service myself, but the disconnects still happen
-Switching power management off on the adaptor, disconnects still happen

Just wondering if there are any other suggestions in order to stop the wireless disconnecting.
Can't really run a cable but I am considering formatting back to XP which I don't really want to do.

Thanks

You might want to go into your router settings and change to a different wifi channel. Windows 7 seems to be more sensitive to channel cross over problems than XP was.

You can also use this Wi-Fi scanner to look for unused channels in your area.
