Preferred Solution: My Internet Disconnects After 10Min

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.)

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 .

I can use the internet for 10-15min then the internet cuts out but I can still use msn.
Iím pretty sure its nothing to do with a parental lock, and if it is, where do I go to change the settings? Im using xp
Ive worked out its nothing to do with the modem and wireless router.
what do i do? what can it be?
 

A:Internet cuts out after 10min but can still use msn

Well, if it's a parental lock, it's been put there for a reason by your parents. Therefore, you will not get any help from us to circumvent it.

However, if it's not a parental lock, please forgive me for suggesting it.

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

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

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 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.

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?

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.

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

A:Internet disconnects

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.

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 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 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, 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.

About a couple weeks ago I started to experience some internet troubles. It would be every 10 minutes, or every couple hours but I would get disconnect from the internet.

To start with the tray icon, it would mostly show the triangle over the symbol when this happens, yet sometimes it would say it was connected perfectly fine. In both circumstances, during these periods it would not be able to connect to the internet.

On my network, maximum of three of us, I am the only one that is hardwired in to the router with an Ethernet cord. The other two are wireless. We had gotten a new router from Bright House, a Ubee modem/router, and were not satisfied at all when this started happening. We purchased a new router to get gigabit Ethernet ports, and to give us 5GHZ wireless channels. After installing the new router, and setting the UBEE to bridge mode, the problem persisted. When the UBEE is in bridge mode though, and I connect directly to the modem I haven't noticed the problem. Although I have never been directly connected to the modem for any extended period of time.

I have seriously tried every solution that threads have offered saying that it may be a windows 7 problem, and none seemed to do the trick. So I am finally trying to reach out to you guys to hopefully receive some help. I have tried calling Bright House and they sent ... Read more

A:Everyone randomly disconnects from Internet

The problem lies somewhere in between your ISP and PCs.

Is this how your routers are connected?
ISP ----- Ubee wireless modem/router (bridge mode) ---- 2nd wireless router

Make sure you only have one dhcp server and the routers are not operating in the same channel. You can disable the firewall of your 2nd wireless router keep the firewall on on your modem/router. You dont need to use DMZ unless you are hosting some service to be accessed through the internet.

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 get randomly disconnected from internet. Pages simply won't load and stay white . Restarting Pc one or twice works sometimes.
It does not happen in middle of browsing but after i close browser.
There is not really much information i can give. No error messages or anything.

A:Random disconnects from internet.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Is this a wired or wireless issue? Have you tried both connection?

We can start off with something simple for now - Disable the Network Adapter's Power Management from Device Manager might help, please see attached file. If this didn't help at all please let us know and we'll move on to the next tasks.

I have Comcast Cable Internet service and i have a Motorola SB4200 Surfboard Cable Modem connected to a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router. From time to time I will be unable to connect to the internet. It seems to happen very randomly and I have not detected a pattern in the disconnects besides its usually when its most inconvenient for me.
This issue started a long time ago and when i first encountered it I had called Comcast and they told me simply to just unplug the modem for 10 seconds and then plug it back in and this has always effectively reset the connection and allowed me to access the internet again.
However, lately its been far too often and is really annoying. Some days it goes out multiple times within an hour.
Any ideas on a remedy to this? Will a new modem help? Or is it something else entirely?

Thanks in Advance

Hi folks

I have recently started experiencing a problem where my internet connection disconnects when trying to download torrents.

My broadband provider is BT.

My internet connection is fine if I dont open the torrent program but as soon as I do it will disconnect after five or ten minutes. If I power down the home hub router and then back on the connection will reconnect but only for a short period of time.

I was using bitlord and then switched to microtorrent to see if the program was the problem but still see the same issue.

Anybody else have this problem or suggest what the issue could be? Is it BT disconnecting the connection because I am downloading torrents?

I just built a new computer recently and it is running great with one big exception, I keep getting randomly disconnected from my wireless internet connection. I do not believe it has anything to do with signal strength because my laptop right next to my rig never has this issue of connectivity. Also seeing as it is a new comp it is not an issue of any malware ect. If i had to guess i would say the wireless card i got is the issue. It was a last minute purchase and cost about 20 dollars. My question is how do I uncover if the wireless card is the culprit and if it is what steps do i take to fix/replace it?
 

A:Random disconnects from Internet

See if there is a newer driver. If so, uninstall the old one through Programs and Features and install the new one. Of course, make sure it is compatible with your version of Windows.

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

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

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

A:Internet Disconnects When Overloaded?

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

I am a new user an can't seem to find a similar question previously posted. Sorry if this is a duplicate.

1. I recently upgraded hardware and software: new hard drive, DVD/CD burner; XP Pro (clean install).
2. I have a unique ISP -- Communicom Dial Return, i.e. download via cable, upload via dial-up modem. Cable is always on, the actual connection requires the dial-up.

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

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.

Hi,

I have just restored my XP system to SP2 after a problem with the USB controller. That fixed, Windows decided to update to SP3 which went ahead with no problems.

Now, though, my internet connection (wired LAN) keeps dropping after about 10 minutes. The only way to get it back is to restart. I have installed the latest network card drivers, but still get "internet explorer cannot display the webpage". I have tried with IE 7 and Safari 3. Renewing the DHCP lease and/or setting the DNS to a manual address do not solve the issue either.

I can still ping hosts on my local network and on the internet like Google, Apple etc and get a full set of replies. However, when i try to ping this machine from another on my network, it fails.

Even though my connection is apparently not there, the LAN status icon says it is still connected. Repairing the connection doesn't affect it.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks.
Joe.
