G580 - Internet Disconnects

Q: G580 - Internet Disconnects

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 soon
Thank you for the help

I have a Compaq Presario-AMD Athlon 64-3500+-512mb-200gb. Running windows xp sp3, updated and malware clean. I am stuck with dialup connection until [email protected] upgrades our area. I sometimes leave my pc running a download all night. I usually use orbit downloader but some downloads work better with no manager. Since I reinstalled windows my connection gets disconnected at at different times and redials the connection, but only at night when I leave it downloading a large file. In internet connection I have checked "never dial a connection". It is just an annoyance but I would like to fix it. Any help will be appreciated. I forgot to say that I use IE7 and have tried connection keeper ( with same results). Tried firefox several times but it was slower than IE on my pc. Thanks again. Lots of good advice on this site.

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.

Any ideas would be appreciated

A:Every so often internet disconnects!

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 I have also been experinsing these problems. I am a video game player as well and whenever I try to play on my laptop my internet disconnects. But all my other devices that use wifi work fine. Also there is nothing wrong with my computer because it works fine on other networks such as my schools. I recently moved and am now using a different internet provider ,centerylink. I think I have to change my modem channel but centurylinks website were you change modem settings is a scam. The website does not work and my parents think theres something wrong with my computer and are refusing to change internet service providers. So I am wondering how If I can change modem channels a different way.

Hi, You might have another wifi signal very close to your house that is on 'your' channel, it happens.
You can only move your channel to one of three different frequencies, that is the lowest, the middle or the highest one. So say your current channel is 6, there is no point going to 7, it's still too close.
If the 'other' problem wifi channel near you is say '1' then you should try to go to the other end of the range.
You change your WiFi channel in your router, then your laptop will find it.
You don't need a website to do that, it's between your laptop and your router.
You make the changes through any web browser, and the details will probably be on the label of your router.
But this might not the problem, although it's a fairly easy one to 'fix' if it is.

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 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

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!

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.

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.

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 thought maybe HijackThis could find something conflicting that is causing this problem?

It seems that every three or four hours our computer will just lose all connection, even the modem shows we don't have one. We have had four cox repairmen come, and all claimed they had fixed a simple problem. They didn't. So whenever this happens all we can do is wait or repeatedly unplug and plug stuff. Obviously we have no clue what is going one. Can somebody help.

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 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?

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 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.

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?

I've had this problem for about a month now: my computer disconnects from the internet every hour. I am using wireless broadband...
When it disconnects, I cannot go on any web-pages, however, when I look at the wireless connection, it says that I'm still connected (status: connected).
The only way I can re-connect is by restarting my computer, which is really annoying when i'm in the middle of things.
One annomally is that I sometimes use Windows Live OneCare Safety Scanner - which is a virus cleaning thing which i think runs via the internet, instead of being a downloaded program: the scan tends to take around 1.5 - 2 hours to complete, during which the internet seems to stay connected. However, once the scan is finished, the internet automatically disconnects...
Also, if I have my gmail account already open, it seems to be able to receive mail and I can read mail and send stuff quite a while after the ‘disconnect’ (meanwhile, I cant see other webpages). Eventually though, my gmail account also disconnects (maybe around 10-15 mins after I stop having access to other webpages). Don’t know if this means anything..
I share the connection with three other computers in my house, and none have this problem (pc's and macs).
Ive been trying to find clues about what it could be, I've read that it might have something to do with my IP renewing or might be a virus, either way im not very technically experienced, so dont know how ... Read more

I've got AT&T DSL, which is on all the time. Nevertheless, after turning on the computer for the day, if I don't actively use the Internet for a while (about a half hour), I lose my connection. In order to reconnect I've had to restart the computer. What program fluke may be causing the computer to disconnect like this? What can I do to ensure that I stay connected? AT&T says it's not caused by them, and I've verified this to be true. I've contacted Compaq, but the guy in India has no solution. I've run Norton virus scan, Spybot, and Spysweeper, all of which indicate that I'm not infected with any malware. My operating system is: XP updated with Service Pack 2 and all subsequent critical updates.

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.

I have two computers hardwired to a router along with one that accesses the router by a wireless connection. One of the computers hardwired to the router disconnects from the internet exactly every ten minutes and I have to restart to be able to connect again. This happens consistently every time. All the other computers work fine and have no problems.

Can anyone please help. I have not been able to figure out what it is. I tried connecting through the wireless card on this computer and the same thing happens. It is running Windows XP Professional.

I'm on Windows XP, using an ethernet cable to connect to my ISP.

Since last night, my internet connection has been randomly dropping. I don't see any 'local area disconnected' or such messages, all the lights on my router remain on indicating that it didn't get disconnected, however I can't browse any sites, I get disconnected from google talk, etc.

Restarting the computer fixes it for the moment, but sometime later it will dc like that again. Waiting for 5-8 mins also fixes it.

There's no pattern to the disconnects, they happened 2-3 times yesterday, then it remained fine for a few hours. Then this morning, it remained fine for 4-5 hours until disconnecting again.

It could be an issue with my ISP, and I've already contacted them to look into it (i'll hear back tomorrow), but because restarting the computer fixes it, I think it could be on my side.

I have Avast Anti virus always kept updated, and ZoneAlarm firewall.

Any ideas? Can I post a Hijack this log or any other log that you guys can look at, and tell me if it might be something on my side?

Thanks.

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?

My Internet connection can go for days with no problem and then for half a day will disconnect every few minutes. The strange thing is that all I have to do to get it back is to disconnect the cable from my computer and reconnect it and in seconds I have Internet again. My internet provider cannot find a problem with the connection and all assume it has something to do with the modem or router but I cannot find any problem with them.

We have a router with 2 computers connected to it and we have a static IP.

I have no 3rd party firewalls and like I said, most of the week this doesn't happen.

I have read all kinds of solutions and have tried them all (installing router\modem\windows updates, etc...)

Instead of trying to figure out what the cause is, since my solution is taking out the cable and putting it back, thus forcing a reconnection, I wanted to ask if you know of any software that would monitor my internet connection and when it sees that it got disconnected, it would force a restart of the connection (like what I do manually by taking the cable in and out.)

Thanks.

A:Internet disconnects for no reason

Well, instead of manually taking the cable in and out, go into command promt (Start -> "cmd") and type "ipconfig /renew".

Have you tried scanning for viruses? In one case I had, an infected computer was attempting to attack other computers on the network, disconnecting them from the internet. Use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or SUPER Antispyware.

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.

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.

My mom's computer is connected to our DSL through a USB port. It all of a sudden stopped working and I'm not sure what's going on. It all started happening when I cleaned out her computer with Spybot, Adaware and Hijack This. Our DSL (says 2WIRE on it) has 2 connections in the back, one for ethernet and one for USB. I have mine connected through ethernet and hers uses the USB. I just restored everything Hijack This removed and her computer is restarting now, but if that doesn't do the trick, how can I fix this? I checked and everything is plugged in properly.
 

A:Internet all of a sudden disconnects?

oops; you can have ONE ethernet or ONE USB, but not both connected at the same time.

Two connect multiple computers, you need a cheap router and it cables
like this
modem->router --> two cables, one to each computer
Mom will need to use the ethernet RJ45 connection rather than the USB,
but it will all run fine, independently or simultaneously

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.

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?

My main desktop is Win XP Pro SP3 with a Linksys router. Through the router, my husband connects with his desktop, and I connect with my laptop. However, my main desktop just loses the internet connection spontaneously.

I have replaced the Ethernet cable with no luck. Sometimes if I switch out the ends of the cable, the internet connection will stay on for a few minutes and then disappear; however, I can still connect through my laptop, and my husband can connect through his desktop without problems.

I have limited knowledge of how routers, etc., work, but it seems to me that if it was a router problem the two peripheral computers would not connect. My Ethernet card is affixed to my motherboard, and I have thought about just putting in a new Ethernet card; but without knowing what the problem might be, I don't want to do that without some help first.

Any help you can give me would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hi,
i notice that there is a similar post here, but the problem is not the same and i cannot find the solution from that topic. My problem starts last month when i am using Windows XP SP1 and all of sudden my computer will get disconnected from the Internet.

I am using wireless broadband and i notice that the wireless modem still receives strong signal from the broadband provider. When this occurs, i my Internet connection dies and i cannot reconnect back. I will have to unpluck my USB cable (which connects to the wireless modem) from my computer and plug it back again so that it detects again the connection. Then i can online again. But this won't last long because it will disconnects again in some time.

Then 2 weeks back i formatted my computer, and installed Windows XP SP2. I use Norton Antivirus and tools like ad-aware and using Window's firewall. Everything was great after the format, but yesterday the problem occurs again. I did no more than my normal routine, i cannot see how i can get infected by virus or anything because i was quite sure the sites i visit is clean.
Anyone has this problem? Please help..i am greatly stressed by this, and i hope not to format my computer again, it was a great fuss and i had to install back the softwares needed for me to work on.

Thanks in advance.

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!).

Whenever I'm away from my laptop (Dell, Windows XP) for more than a few minutes, it disconnects from the internet, and I have to re-boot to re-connect. This is happening with my current wireless home network, but it used to happen when I had a wired connection. The internet signal strength is excellent.

Is there a setting I need to change, or is there just something wrong with my computer? Is it fixable or do I just need a new one? (I've already tried turning off the various hibernate features.)

A:Laptop Disconnects From Internet

bjbmd, some suggestions:

- since both wired and wireless had a common denominator (loss of wireless), have you checked your isp?
- how much memory do you have? Make sure virtual memory is set efficiently
- run CleanDisk from System Accessories to clear out cache
- defragment your the os drive in safe mode
- make sure you have the latest drivers for your wireless card (check manufacturer's website to update)
- make sure you have the latest firmware for your wireless router (also check manufacturer's website)
- check your cables to ensure they are in good shape
- run a good spyware scan (spybot, ad-aware, or avg-antispyware)

Hi everyone,

I posted a while back that I was having frequent disconnects from the Internet with my DSL connection and a Westell 7500 modem. The problem is always solved by turning off the modem, waiting 1 minute, and turning the modem back on, although sometimes I have to do this a couple times. There are also periods of time when the Internet is extremely slow for hours.

I ran several tests from the website that was recommended and the results are below. The first is when the Internet was running decently well. The next 2 are when it was extremely slow.

My modem is plugged into an arbitrary phone jack and I use the wireless connection for my computer. There are no phones or other gadgets plugged into any other phone jacks. I did find the Telco box outside the house on the first floor but I did not want to plug the modem directly in because I would have to leave it outside hanging somehow in the cold and I didn't want to play around with opening it and such.

Can anyone interpret what these tests mean and what is my next step? Thanks!!

Ok, I am so stumped and hope someone can help. I am Technology Director for a public school system. All of our vista machines began randomly disconnecting from the internet this week. Local network connection is fine but can't connect to the internet. We believe it has something to do with the fact that one of our domain controllers crashed and was removed earlier this week. When the disconnect happens you can disable/enable the connection and it will connect again only to disconnect in a matter of minutes. This happens with wired or wireless. Now here is the wierd thing, if we assign a static ip in our 172 ip range (which is the range of ips in our DHCP server) same problem but if we assign an ip in the 192 range no problem, it stays connected all day. I don't know if this is a related issue or not but I also noticed that occasionally after disable/enable is performed, the local connection and the wireless connections are both named network 4. I noticed this on two of our vista machines at the same time and another time it would read the local connection as the wireless connection (Crazy I know). Our networking administrator worked on this all morning and thought he stumble on a solution. He found traces of the crashed server and deleted them (I think in active directory). It seemed to have fixed it at first. I was able to stay connected for about 2 hours but before the leaving work for the day it began again.

Hello, the last few weeks my internet is disonnecting every 30 minutes or so.

The things I've tried so far are:
- Up- and downgrade wifi drivers
- Reset my router
- Change the channel on my router
- Change the wpa lease time on my router and disable it
- Turn of the firewall of my router

This problem only happens to my laptop. I can have my mothers laptop next to me and while mine is disconnected hers will still work. My laptop doesn't get hot either and it is running on maximum performance settings.

Also:
Pinging to the router gives a time out (4 packets send, 0 recieved).
Pinging to localhost -n 20 gives 20 packets send, 20 recieved.

Now I'm clueless as this proves I loose connection with my router, however the 2nd ping test tells me my wireless card is ok. So I honestly have no idea what else to try and how to solve this issue.

I'd greatly appreciate your help, thanks.

Hi everyone, I unfortunately still use dial up internet. And for a good 6 months or so now whenever I turn on my Lexmark printer it disconnects me and starts to redial the connection.

It never used to do this before. And I haven't switched ISP's or anything like that. I contacted Lexmark about this and they said the problem is my ISP, but again it never used to do this before so I can't imagine what the problem is.

If I turn on my printer before connecting to the internet then it works fine, but if I turn it on during a connection it loses the connection. The printer is a Lexmark X6150 model. I do use it to fax sometimes, and so the phone lines are running through the printer as well as the back of my PC.

If you need more information to help me just ask, thanks.

Hello!Several days ago I started experiencing these weird, frequent disconnects. They last for 15 seconds up to a minute and they seem to be occurring randomly, perhaps 2-3 times per hour. I first put the blame on the router, but even after connecting my computer directly to the modem the problems persisted. Next my suspicions were aimed at my ISP, but there seemed to be no faults or maintenance work being done over there, so I connected another of my computers to the modem instead and to my surprise everything was working and the disconnects had disappeared. After ~3 hours I connected internet to my usual computer instead, and internet started disconnecting again. So obviously my computer is the culprit, but I've scanned it with many anti-virus programs and nothing turns up. I'm at a loss here - can someone help me out? Thanks in advance.link to hijackthis log, in case it might help: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/164522/strange-disconnectsrelated-to-another-topic/

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?

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.

I have been having a bizarre problem for months now!

Every time I try access the online BBC Radio Player (http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/radio1) and/or some other online streams my Internet disconnects itself!

The problem seems to be fixed by re-installing Flash player. However, upon a restart the problem comes back!

Any ideas as to why this might be happening?

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.

Hey guys,

Well, whenever im on my computer, my internet just randomly disconnects, then connects again about 10 seconds later. It is unbearable when im trying to play counter strike or just browsing the web. And its really bad when im on msn. Msn signs out when the net disconnects, so yeah.

I have wired with a blue cable connecting my computer to my netgear DG834g (my brother just told me that, im noob)
I have Windows Vista 32bit

I would really appreciate it if you guys helped me out. I had this problem about 2 weeks ago for around a week and i fixed it by changing the port the cable goes into in my computer (there are two ports). That fixed it. Now i don't know what to do. FFS, it's happened 3 times while i've been writing this...

PLEASE HELP A NOOB OUT!!! I REALLY want to get this fixed! I must game and i must get this fixed soon so i can get the last out of CoD4 before CoD5! I can't even do my work because the internet keeps cutting out!!

Hi all, I searched and couldn't find a problem to this one.

While browsing my broadband connection is reliably disconnected if I type in an invalid webpage (i.e., if I type in abim.org as opposed to www.abim.org) or sometimes when trying to download a file such as the AVS file converter. If I open a different page I am prompted to connect to the internet which is quickly done but what is causing this- or more importantly, how do I fix it?

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

A:Wireless Internet Disconnects

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.

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.

Hey all, First time poster on these forums. I was hoping to get new insight as to what might be causing the issues I'm having.

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 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.

Well, it's not completely random.

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

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,
I have an Advent 9515 laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2. I connect wirelessly to my router downstairs and all is fine for standard web surfing. The problem arises when I use services such as YouTube and Spotify, or perform a large download. The PC will just stop being connected to the router and the little yellow exclamation mark appears over my networking icon stating limited connectivity. The standard Windows Network Diagnostics tools are useless, telling me to move to another location and turn the router off and on again.
Using device manager I attempt to disable the Wireless Card in order to enable it again, hopefully refreshing it, but this just causes the computer to go unresponsive and requires a reboot.
Also, if I do not do anything to try and solve the problem, when I shut down, Windows says "shutting down" forever and I have to force it. Is there any way to solve this problem I have to put up with?
Also, this happens to no other PC's connecting to the same router

A:Internet Disconnects Randomly

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

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

Randomly, but more frequently when i am gaming (WoW, Counter strike, Ventrilo, Warcraft III), my cable completely disconnects my internet and telephone (Optimum online & Voice)

The modem itself stays on but the lights for DS, US, and Online go out for 30 secs to a minute then reconnects and my internet is fine for the next 30 minutes or so until the same thing happens again.

I have switched out modems since it happened, no change.
I have switched out routers (upgraded from a WRT54GS to a WRT310N), no change.


I have seen you guys do some remarkable stuff with Hijackthis and such, if you could help me now with this problem it would relieve a lot of grief.

Thanks for your time

Hi

Just out of interest have you contacted your ISP in case it is a fault with their equipment. ?

hello, i have been dealing with this issue for almost a year now.

Every hour my internet has a brief "pause", it can be from 3 seconds to a whole minute, it happens every single hour, but not exactly, In example it could happen at 9:12 then at 10:08 then at 11:10 and so on.

its very annoying because it disconnects me from online games. I've called my ISP about 30 times, changed my modem twice, no solution.

I know its from the network and not my PC because i also play on consoles and it happens too.

I've been having this problem for a while now. It usually doesn't happen when there isn't strain on the internet but when I start downloading a torrent or connect to my wireless it usually disconnects. The problem only occurs when I have the wireless connected. If I'm connected directly to my modem then my internet is fine. The router I'm using is a d-link and I have already talked to eastlink, my service provider and they said everything is fine on their end. I'm kind of stumped on this problem, any help would be appreciated.
 

A:Internet Randomly Disconnects

Hi

i had the same issue a while back, i changed the channel i was using on the router and it cleared, seems something was causing interference with it, such as another router nearby (several people near me have wireless).

I tried a few channels before settling down to just one.

regards

So I reformatted my dad's comp. I get into windows for the first time and go straight to nvidia's site to get the video drivers. So I get them, install, and restart. Within a few seconds of starting up I see the GOD DAMN wormblaster window popup, along with a few other popup's talkin about my registry being corrupt (ya know... the blatantly obvious malicious popups). So I restart and dl the wormblaster fix. I restart his comp and all is good except the random popups still. So I go back to my comp to dl an antivirus program and now my internet is randomly disconnecting! I tried system restore, looking for any crap in the windows task manager, and don't know what else to do... anyone have any bright ideas? I tried to dl the AVG Antivirus 7.5 but when my net disconnects the download freezes.

Hi guys,

Whenever i try to connect my PS3 to the internet, i get one error message or another, it never just works. i either fail the "PlayStation Network" test or the "Connection Speed Download/Upload" test. i think this is because the ports aren't forwarded, i have no idea how to do this i think my computer has a static IP now, but could someone clarify how to do this please? also, my next issue is concerning adding my PS3 to my DMZ. whenever i enter the PS3's IP into the DMZ section, the internet connection cuts out, i stay connected to the router, but not the internet, please help

All help appreciated
Max

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.

Hello, I recently started having problems with my internet connection where I'll be online (game or random browsing) and I will randomly be disconnected. I am hardwired through a wireless router. The most I run at one time would be Ventrilo, website in background, and WoW and this has never happened before until a couple of days ago. I attempted to switch ports and still same results.

I thought maybe it was the NVidia nForce Networking Controller and the WoW support forums suggested I go in Device Manager > Advanced Tab > Checksum Offload - Disabled, Speed/duplex Setting - Force 100 Full Duplex --- It also recommended I turn off the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option. I have done all this and to no avail. The NVidia nForce Networking Controller verison is 4.7.5.0. I am at a loss as to what to do from here on.

Let me know what information I can provide to help solve this.

Thank you!!!

p.s. - This took me 10 minutes to write while I was dropped here and there randomly.... the irony...
 

A:Random internet disconnects

Easiest thing to do is try being connected directly to the modem (bypass the router) or get another router and see if the same thing happens. I had this issue about a year ago, replaced my router and it's been solid since then.

My internet disconnects itself after 19 seconds of being connected, then it reconnects itself after being disconnected for a few seconds. I am using XP and an ethernet cord. At home (at college right now), when I use the internet I use a wireless router which works perfectly.
