my internet keeps disconnecting and then reconnecting after for some reason. I am using wifi on my computer to connect to the internet and every other computer in the house uses same thing and works fine. But my computer keeps disconnecting and then reconnecting to internet for some reason. It just started a couple days ago. Sometimes it goes a couple minutes before disconnecting and sometimes it disconnects after a couple hours but it keeps doing it and is really annoying.
I am having problems with my wifi connection, it has been going on for a while now, i got it fixed by a computer guy but then i had to reset my entire computer and now my internet will stay on for about a minute or two and then disconnect again and so on but after a certain period of time (2-3 hrs usually) it will stay connected until my computer gets shut down.. I am on an Acer Aspire 5315-2822 i have disconnected the "acer empowering technology" and i know that has nothing to do with the problem because it was always disconnected when my internet ran steady. There are 4 other networks in my area, if that means anything?Not to mention im using windows vista.
btw- I don't know all the correct technical terms, so I will try to describe them as best as I can.
My internet at home keeps disconnecting. It disconnects when I go upstairs (we have a small house), it disconnects when I'm more than 5 meters away. Sometimes when I'm right next to the modem it disconnects. But not only does it disconnect, it also ask me once again for my internet password (as it is protected with one).
Things I've noticed:
-This has been going on for some while (about a year ... I'm a really patient person). It does it with my and my brother's macbook Pro (Mac Os X 10.5.8) but it doesn't with my father's Toshiba
-We switched to bell's fibre optic, so the modem should be working fine
-my internet works beautifully when I'm at my grandmothers house (who also has the new Fibre optic) and works well at my school's university
-Once a few months ago I decided to do some searching and found out that my computer kept changing some kind of IP name or whatever (not sure exactly what) but it kept saying: "BELL_account_name_0 has disconnected so it reconnected to BELL_account_name_1", and then _2, _3 once I found it was up to _150 !!
I am pretty handy with computers but I'm not used to Mac's settings. Everytime I try to do the Network Diagnostics sometimes it works first shot, sometimes I have to re run the same Diagnostics and it will work 20 tries later (like I said I am patient). But I know that Network Diagnostics is NOT THE ANSWER. It's just a temporary patch, I want to solve this problem completely so I won't have to deal with it in the future.
Ok so my internet connection has recently started disconnecting and reconnecting every 5 mins or so. It has never done this before and has started doing it out of the blue. It doesn't even appear to have cut out by the icon at the bottom but it does stuff like stop youtube videos from loading or when I am playing online poker or online gaming it will cut out for about 30 seconds before reconnecting again.
A couple of months ago my internet (Insight Broadband) began to randomly disconnect and reconnect, and recently it has become more frequent (every 5-10 minutes). I connect to my internet wirelessly through a linksys router. It's not my laptop because our desktop and xbox experience the same frequent disconnects and reconnects. I've tried the dns flush with no success. Ive also changed the wireless channel to 1 to prevent any interference. Also, our linksys router is about 4 years old, which could be the cause, but I'd like to eliminate all other possibilities first. And finally, every time i click diagnose connection I receive the error " Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (DNS server) is not responding.
And just recently our internet has become very slow (youtube videos taking longer to buffer with many pauses). I eliminated the possibility of my router itself being at fault as when I plugged my xbox or laptop or desktop directly into the modem the same frequent disconnects and reconnects occurred. Here's a copy of my ipconfig /all: [code] Also, sometimes when I diagnose the connection I don't get this error but the random disconnects and reconnects still occur.for the past couple of days or so I'm no longer getting the first error message about a DNS server, however the disconnects are still occurring as often.
I got a new laptop (Toshiba Z830) last month and for the last few days my wireless internet keeps disconnecting and reconnecting after about a minute. It'll disconnect and say there's no internet (there's a yellow exclamation mark on the icon on the taskbar) and after about a minute it'll reconnect. I don't know if there's a pattern but I've noticed it keeps happening when I try to watch a video on youtube and sometimes at other times. No other device of mine is having any problems (desktop, phone, netbook), just my laptop.
Basically, my wireless internet has been disconnecting then reconnecting on weekends up to 50+ times a day. The weekend also seems to be the time when I have 10+ wireless connections in range. Can that be the cause of it? I have tried changing my router channels but to no avail.
I use a wireless network in Singapore through a router. For the past year or so, my wireless network keeps disconnecting and reconnecting. However, most often the wireless icon in the tray often makes no mention that the wireless has not disconnected. This same problem happens on my whole family's laptops no matter whether they use windows xp, vista, or windows 7. Occasionally my whole network disappears and i actually do disconnect and i can't find the network till i switch on and off my router.

The router is connected to the desk top that my husband uses,, his is not wireless but my laptop is. the laptop wireless connection keep disconnecting and then reconnecting on it's own. This just started a couple of months ago. At first I thought it was the router but my daughter came over with her laptop and as mine was connecting and disconnecting hers was just fine so that has led me to believe it is my computer... but what could it be? I have a wireless mouse and USB speakers plugged into my computer but nothing else and we do not have a cordless phone that could be interfering. could it be my cell phone? why would it have not been doing it all along if there were the case?
I've been having a problem the past several days with my wired connection where every 2-3 seconds it will disconnect, then reconnect, then disconnect, and so on without stopping. There doesn't seem to be any reason for it, and it's not the internet connection but rather the physical connection that seems to be lost (the network will do the entire identifying...unidentified network > identified network thing).
Naturally, I've already tried upgrading my network card drivers + uninstalling/reinstalling when it didn't work. I've powercycled the router/modem and rebooted the comp, but I can't find any way to fix the issue. It's not a problem with the router, since this only happens on my computer, and the other computers connected to the router have no problems at all. Even if I disconnect the router and connect my computer directly to the modem, it still has the issue.
Normally I'd assume it was something wrong with my network adapter, but my computer has no problems connecting to a new router/network it's never been on before. This only happens with networks that my computer has connected to in the past.
Recently I've just been using the wireless connection since it was only the wired connection having issues, but a few days ago my wireless connection started doing the exact same thing. It'll disconnect/reconnect ad infinitum without stopping every few seconds, so it's impossible to get on the internet.
Here are the results of my ipconfig:

I've been otherwise very happy with my Linksys WRT54GL but have not been able to work from home without my work VPN from disconnecting/reconnecting multiple times throughout the day.
The IT guy said that a lot of people have issues with the older Linksys routers, and recommended I get something more modern. Assuming that is correct, what would be a good upgrade for me? I really don't want to spend too much time setting up the new router, but would love QoS if it comes out of the box. I have about 4 wired connections and about 6-8 wireless connections, on a 20MBit connection.
I have a USB Netgear WN111v2 that has been working perfectly up until now, it can't connect to the network and trying to manually set up the addresses, reinstalling drivers, and trying a system restore haven't worked. Even though the router has a lease for the computer on 192.168.1.11 it's doesn't work, although it will show that it's connecting, it won't ping anything, including the router... WZC utility is stopped?
My parents switched from comcast to uverse and I'm having problems staying connected to the 2wire router they supplied. my connection disconnects and reconnects making the internet nearly impossible to use
I have been using this for over a year with no problems and a couple of days ago, it started disconnecting and reconnecting constantly. I went and updated the firmware for it, but still the same problem.
About 2 weeks ago my router began acting up. It disconnects when I'm just browsing, downloading or streaming a video. I tried everything! I changed the channel on the router, resetted the router numerous times. I connected the ethernet cable from my pc directly to the modem to see if it was in fact my router and not the modem. My pc never disconnected once while connected to the modem. In order for me to download something or stream a video I have to connect my pc to the modem and it is becoming a pain!
Sometimes when I leave my D-Link DSL-2680 router on for a long time it keeps disconnecting and the internet and DSL light turn red or they are blank. sometimes happens randomly as well. My ISP is TalkTalk but their customer service is crap and they're too slow to respond.
I'm no good with computers, or anything like that; but this since about two days ago, my internet has been cutting in and out. One minute it will work fine, then a few minutes later it will disconnect, and then reconnect a few minutes later.I noticed that the globe symbol on my router either flashes when this occurs, or the power button turns orange. Why this is happening, and why it is happening all of a sudden ?
I am having problems with my internet connection dropping every day, usually around 2-3 times per day. Internet goes off for a second or two and it comes back. Usually this wouldn't be a problem for me but I am a professional poker player and every time internet goes off, I loose all my active tables in poker lobbys (due to reconnect) which is unacceptable and a serious problem for me.
We recently moved in with some family, and we brought with us a Belkin N wireless Router. I set it up to their existing internet modem (I'm not sure what type it is or anything, I just know that the ISP is Optus) about halfway through January.
It's been working fine until Friday. Since setting it up, both my brother and I have (at different times) been playing Star Wars Battlefront II online. On Thursday night I was playing online fine, with no lag or anything (with a ping of about 138), however, ever since Friday it has been lagging non-stop. I have the same ping so I thought it must have been because we've gone over the limit for the month and the internet slows down.
However, every few mintutes (1 or 2 normally) the connection between my laptop and the network drops, and then within another few minutes connects again. I am running Windows Vista Business. My brothers laptop has the same problem, and he has Vista Home installed.
At first I thought it was a problem with the router, so I updated the firmware and restored the factory defaults, but the problem remains. When I get onto a website (if I'm lucky enough for the connection to stay) it normally loads pretty fast, so I dunno if we've gone over the limit or not (and I don't know the password to check).
I have a 5505 ver 8.2 connected to a router with a T1 internet connection. There was a problem with the internet service and when it was resolved the ASA did not pass traffic to the internet until it was power-cycled. Unfortunately that's all the info I have, as I was not onsite and couldn't access the ASA.
I have installed a DIR-655 and it all works at home, my brother accesses my slingbox to get his fix of english tv. This has all worked no problem in the past with the old box (Technicolor TG582n). However it now only connects for approx 5 mins and then it loses the connection. Replacing the old box all is well so it has to be something on the router. I have changed various settings inc changing the MTU size, pointing the gateway to the external gateway address, upgrading the firmware (now on Hardware Version B1, Firmware Version 2.05).
I bought a Dlink Dir 655 router a couple weeks and i seem to having a trouble. Every between 30min to a couple hours the connection dropps for no apparent reason. I tried a couple things like resetting to factory config, giving myself a static adress (since the logg was spamming the dhcp over my PC) Unfortuantly, none seem to work. so far it does a great job but the connection dropps are really annoying. Here are the log files if when it last occured.

It's a D-Link Wireless N 150.I constantly get an "Excellent" signal from the router, but my HP Mini netbook keeps disconnecting and re-connecting. It happens three to ten times in each hour, and it re-connects quickly, but the hiccup is annoying. Once in a blue moon, it'll disconnect and refuse to re-connect for a while.Other items that use the router--our iPhones, our Nintendo 3DS's, our Wii, our Xbox--don't have an issue.My netbook doesn't have a problem if I use wireless somewhere else, like in a coffee shop or McDonalds or wherever.I've tried updating my drivers, without much luck.

I log in to work from home and if I am inactive for 5-10 minutes, I lose connection to my work server. If I bypass the router, this problem doesn't happen. How I can change settings to keep my session alive?
For the past few months my router has been randomly disconnecting me and everyone who is connected to the router from the internet from anywhere between 10 seconds and 1 min and i can't seem to figure out what has been causing this. It can happen multiple times a day or it can go for a week without happening. it makes playing online games extremely annoying.
I am pretty new to networking and I have been working on things for over a week and have made some progress which has lead me here. My basic problem is that my network (media shares) is disconnecting from WDTVLIVE while steaming shows through playon. However, I can stream 1080p movies that are stored on my PC all day with no problems. Even when the media shares disconnect, network shares (stuff stores on my PC_) are still available and stream fine.
I get this at random times. My internet disconnects until I reset my modem and I don't think it has anything to do with the modem because I had it replaced by my ISP and they did a few line tests and nothing was wrong. What can I do to avoid having this problem anymore? It's been doing it for almost 2 weeks now and when it decides to do it is random.
My previous wireless card was D-Link brand, and worked great. I never ever had trouble with connecting, never had to think about it or mess with any software. It always ran silently in the background, and connected automatically without fail. The card got damaged when I moved my computer, so I bought this T-LINK brand because it had good reviews.First I installed it from the CD the recommended way--with drivers and software. It was able to connect after some fiddling around, but then it would periodically disconnect. The problem seems to happen every 10 minutes or so, or whenever I open a game or program (like Steam), or google chrome/internet explorer, anything that requires internet usage. Sometimes it would give me an error about the settings of the card not being the same as the network settings. I think I fixed that, and still it had the same problem (it should have automatically detected the settings though).
The only way to restart it was to unplug the card, wait 10 seconds, plug it back in, or to restart my computer. However, it would soon DC again. When it does so, its like the card just goes to sleep -- no more blinking green light. Also, I made sure that the drivers that came on the installation CD are current (which they are). Eventually, after playing with settings to no avail, I uninstalled drivers and software and then restarted my computer, then reinstalled just the drivers.At first it was unable to connect, but after moving the stand to a different USB slot, then refreshing my IP through cmd, it did connect. It then DCed once on its own. I was able to get it back up after pulling the card out of the USB stand and plugging it back in. Since then it has not DCed, but I am not holding my breath.
First I have to say, I absolutely hate the program that came with it. Windows does everything the program does, except 100% better. I am not surprised that its not DCing as much with just the drivers.Ah, I spoke too soon. While writing this post, I attempted to open a new tab in google and it temporarily DCed me five times in a row. Specifically, there is a little yellow triangle over a 5-bars good signal. Says it is connected (limited connectivity). This time, the little green light stays blinking. It eventually re-connected itself each time on its own (maybe when the IP refreshed itself?). Each time it happened I was trying to use google searchThe 6th time I was in the middle of watching a video on youtube (not sure it makes a difference). The DCing seems to happen a lot more when I am actually using the connection. Sometimes I cannot load a web page even when it says I am "connected"[CODE]
