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.

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 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.

Every so often when i am on the internet it disconnects and i cant open any web pages. The connection is still there in the bottom right hand corner, ip address etc. are still there but web pages wont open. I try to repair but i have to reboot to make it work again. I am using a laptop on a wireless connection, think this also may have something to do with the freezes it get occasionally.

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 there guys. I've have had some great help from all you guys here and I need your help again.
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.
Please let me know if you need any info at all.

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.

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!

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,

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!

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.

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?

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.

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.

Problem: Internet disconnects at 20 min. no matter if the brouser is in constant use, i.e. downloading updates, etc., email being sent, whatever. Modem log at Diagnostics Tab notes "Hardware hang-up due to lowering DTR" I'm not smart enough to understand what that means.
If I make any change whatsoever to the Internet connection options, my computer will not connect ('unable to establish connection' displayed in dial-up thread.) Can't return to original settings and reconnect...must delete the connection on Internet Tools and reinstall via the Connection Wizard.
There must be a setting somewhere that makes my modem (US Robotics 56K Voice PCI) and XP Pro and Communicomm compatiable and allows me to make normal, typical settings and control how the internet connection performs.

Any thoughts
thx -- rah

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.

Because I'm in a workplace environment.. I like to lock windows by using winkey-L. However, my internet connection is always disconnecting and reconnecting, and when I go back to my desktop.. a balloon on my system tray shows "Local Area Connection is Now Connected". So I dont know when my actual connection actually disconnected. Are there any programs out there that can determine when a connection was disconnected and reconnected? That would be great.

Regards,

A:Finding out When internet disconnects.

I believe you can tell the most network adapters to write link state info to the WIndows event viewer.

Your problem is most likely Windows turning off the network adapter to save power (or the NIC doing it by itself). See the adapter properties in Device Manager.

for some reason, whenever i use the internet, it will disconnect me after 3 hours of use, give or take 20 minutes or so. this is very very frustrating!!! is there any way i can fix it???
miker
 

A:internet disconnects after 3 hours!!

IE has an option under Tools/Internet Options/Connections and then usually properties for your dialup where you can specify a time to disconnect (i.e. - if idle more than X minutes). Have you checked this?

If not - it may be something in your ISP setup (like aol, etc.)

Hello! I've been having problems for a while with my internet. I thought it was a temporary thing, but the problem stayed and only got worse. Unfortunantly, I am limited in my knowledge in computer and internet terms. However, using google, I have found this thread (techspot.com/vb/all/windows/t%20%3C/t-56828-Internet-is-fast-but-disconnects-randomly-Please-help.html) which describes a similar case to my problem. The only difference is that I live in NY, USA and use Optimum Online. In the past, I have had absolutely no trouble with Optimum. Ever since my father decided to take away wireless, I've been having disconnection problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
 

A:Internet Randomly Disconnects

OK, I followed the 8 steps and attached here are the logs the post had requested. If I did anything wrong, please let me know. Thanks for all the help in advance!

edit: Oh, and regards to Matthew's post, I have no clue what the second part is proposing. But I think there is a good chance that this is a malware problem because in the past, I had accidentally downloaded a harmful file. The webmistress said it was a malware, so that could have been the reason for this.

I have a Speedcom+ Broadband Router (RT514AD), connected to a Motorola cable modem and 2 computers (each running Win98SE). Everything works fine for about 1 hour, then my internet connection is lost, and I have to press the reset button on the router, which then sorts it out (but only until the next hour).

I've looked for a firmware upgrade, but can't find find technical support for this product anywhere (it was the cheapest after all!). Is there anything I can do to make the connection more stable?

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.

Also, make sure that the DHCP Service is started and set to "automatic" in Administrative Tools>Services.

Hey,
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.
 

A:Internet Slow / Disconnects

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.

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:
"An error has occurred while renewing interface Local Area connection : Unable to contact your DHCP sever. Request has timed out"

When I type "ipconfig /all" into the cmd option i get:

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

Title says it all.

It is getting frustrating. I just want to leave uTorrent on over night to download, but within 20 minutes to an hour my internet just disconnects.

I have XPlornet Radio internet (I live where there is no hardwire). They said they would call me if I was using too much internet from downloads, which they have never called me. They said when I reach 100GB's in a month they will call me, but that is virtually impossible to reach.

My Router is a D-Link DIR825. It says my modem has disconnected, but the antenna outside my house has full bars. Usually when the internet is down, the lights are red or will flash. I reset it (Unplugging the antenna, and plugging it back in 2 minutes apart), and the web is still down. I then do the same, but with my router as well. Then BAM ! Internet is magically running again. Then it cuts out after enough time of downloading.

I think it's a router problem if resetting the router fixes it? Could it be a setting in the router itself?

Thanks so much.

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.

So this problem started a while ago, at least half a year ago when i changed internet service provider.
every once in while my internet slowed down so much that the connection on my browser timed out and some other softwares like skype would not work. When i looked in my network center it showed that my computer is connected to my LAN but not to the internet. Another weird thing was that while my internet was down i could still be in skype calls or even send texts sometimes but my browser or games that require internet connection wouldnt work, and while i could stay in skype calls i started before i couldnt start new ones or call anyone. And lastly, the problem seemed to only be happening to my pc, not my brother's who is connected to the same LAN as i am, and whenever i disconnected his cable from the router i seemed to not be getting the problem anymore. After a little time varying from 15 seconds to 5 minutes or more my internet would come back and work as well as always.
In the beginning my internet worked most of the time and rarely this problem would show up, but as time went on it happened more and more until my internet almost never worked properly and i had to call my ISP and some tech guy that i know. Eventually i used the windows internet fix thing, not expecting it to work since it never does, but miraculously it found a service that should be working in my computer but wasnt and once i turned it on the problem seems to be fixed.

My dear friends

I am using a Windows XP Pro system. I use to connect to the internet with dial-up connection. Recently, my connection started showing a strange behaviour. I can connect to the internet, but after a few seconds of establishing the connection the system automatically disconnects from the internet and prompts to redial. When I redial it connects again but disconnects too. The same thing repeats whenever I try to connect to the internet. I checked the settings, but everything was right (I didn't change them either).

What could be the reason for this problem? Could anyone help me solve it, please?

Regards.

Vinod
 

A:Connects to Internet,disconnects soon after

Mostly this kind of problem is caused by bad connection, usually every ISP has more than 1 phone number for their customers to connect to the internet, maybe the phone number you were using was busy, try to connect again using the other numbers. If you don't know the other numbers, call your ISP and ask for another number you can use to connect to the internet.

I've only been having this problem recently and it's seriously driving me up the wall and I'm about to throw this laptop out the window.
I play online games, and I've never had a problem with anything, but just recently every 15-20 minutes I'll get disconnected from the game. I thought this was a game problem, and contacted the GMs for support, but as I was waiting for a reply my whole internet started glitching up. Over the next few days every single program I had connected to the internet started disconnecting, and the disconnects were getting longer and more frequent.

First my game (Rohan Online) would disconnect, now its Rohan and Ventrilo. Then Rohan Vent and Trillian. Now even Firefox won't work. It's not my ISP, because my crappy desktop works without a problem. I asked several people I know who are computer savvy bout what to do and I did the following things:

I started my comp in safe mode and ran a virus scan with AVG free edition. It found nothing.

I did a system restore to about a month ago, it didn't fix the problem and actually made my comp run slower, so I restored it back to before the system restore. Now my comp has fragments of old files I had deleted before but somehow got half-restored in the restore. I think I just got the last of them out again (like Avast!). My computer is still running slower than it was before the system restore, and I'm still disconnecting, only now it's every few minutes, and things like vent are pinging at 500+ when befo...
