Internet Connection Dropping After Upgrading To Windows 7

Feb 28, 2011

Currently I have a Wireless network with a NETGEAR WGR614 V6 Wireless Router which worked fine until we changed computers. Now every couple of hours our internet connection looses connection on the main computer as well as other computer on the network that loose connection. Now once I come in and change the channel port on my router I get a internet connection but eventually its lost

Internet Connection Dropping By Windows 7 Machines Only?

Feb 4, 2011

I recently added two Win7 computers to my ethernet network (one replaced an older computer, the other has brought the total to 4 machines). The original 2 workstations (XPpro) are fine, but the 2 new Win7 computers intermittently lose internet connection. They remain on the network, just lose internet. The 2 that are having the problem are wired directly to the first router, Linksys WRT160N. The 2 XP computers, that work perfectly, are wired 150 feet away, attached to a Linksys WRT54G used as an access point.The problem is much more severe on one of the new machines, with Win7 Home Deluxe - it stays offline about half of the time. The other, Win7 Pro, is occasionally waxed for 5 or ten minutes. Both use the Win7 default firewall & settings, I've added Avast free anti-virus but no additional firewall software. I have not noted any error messages other than the red X on the networking diagram, and the browser can't find page

Dell :: XPS 600 Not Connecting To Internet After Upgrading To Windows 8

Dec 4, 2012

I was recently given a Dell XPS 600 computer as a hand-me-down and wished to update it to Windows 8. It was previously running XP Service Pack 3, 32-bit. The installation went well, but my network and audio drivers were wiped out. I've been doing some research and searching and found the page with the drivers that I need. As long as I can connect to the internet I know the rest of the issues can be easily fixed. url...

'm not seeing any drivers under Vista for the network card. Is there any other way to diagnose this? Remember, I can't connect to the internet on the problem machine. I've heard that XP drivers are not compatible w/ Windows 8...although I've heard mention of Comparability Mode.

Windows 7 Home Network Connection Dropping Intermittently?

Jun 28, 2011

I have a desktop computer and a laptop computer both running Windows 7 Home Premium. The desktop is connected to the router directly and the laptop is connected to the wireless network. When I restart both computers, I can see and access the other computer through the home network without problems. But after a while, sometimes just a few minutes, I can only see the other computer but cannot access it. Sometimes, I cannot even see the other computer. If I do a "ipconfig /release" and a "ipconfig /renew", it may sometimes correct the problem for a while.

I have looked at many related discussions on the web and none of the suggestions work for me.I have the firewalls disabled on both computers, as well as the ipv6 and IP service. I have also disabled the Bonjour service.I have turned a number of services, such as computer browser, server, workstation and many others to automatic as people suggested.

Windows 7 Pro 64bit Machine - Wireless Connection Very Slow And Dropping Regularly

Dec 31, 2011

It's a Windows 7 Pro 64bit machine with a (newly installed) Asus P8H67 pro motherboard and an Edimax ew-7612pln pci-e card, the router is a thompson 585v8 router with the latest firmware on (upgraded as part of troubleshooting). I upgraded the wireless card drivers one time whilst it was disconnected, it appeared to work for a few hours but then dropped again it also went through a phase of connecting to the router as an 'unidentified network' with no internet access although I don't believe it was attaining an IP address. When it was connected the internet was pretty slow and anything like a file down load would knock it off completely. There were no errors at the time of disconnection in the event log (bar a DNS error or two saying it could not locate the website I was trying to get to before it failed), however the only information type events I noted were a few services stopping and starting and an odd one regarding the host not being able to find the 'master browser' which was identified as another laptop on the wireless network.

The machines are not in the same work group or in a domain, all other laptops and devices on the network work fine and are very stable - as was this one up until a couple of weeks ago. I've uninstalled a couple of pieces of software that were recently installed ; VMware player (which added virtual NICs upon installation and funnily enough made the wireless reconnect after a few hours of downtime upon installation...but the effect was shortlived) and some asus mobo utilities.

Keep Dropping Internet Connection?

Nov 10, 2012

I keep dropping my internet connection.

I have a NetGear N600 Wireless Dual Band Router model WNDR3400 purchased 4/26/11.

I keep restarting it and it's ok for a little bit but intermittently keeps dropping and coming back. I am in San Diego on using Cox Cable as a service provider, I guess it could also be the modem??

how to troubleshoot to determine if it's the modem or the router?

Internet Connection Keeps Dropping

Apr 24, 2012

For the last couple of months we've been having problems keeping a connection to the internet. The green light turns red and everything loses connection while it cycles back on. I've tried everything I can think of and am at a total loss as to how to fix this.

The ISP has been out twice to check and replace all the lines and install a cat 5 line to no avail. I thought it might be an ip conflict dropping the connection so I assigned everything its own address and that didn't solve anything. I have a brand new netgear n300 router/modem that replaced the Actiontec one the ISP provided because I thought that might be failing, no change. The next thing I tried is to turn off and disconnect everything from the network except my laptop to see if it was a certain device causing the problems. It seemed to be going well for about an hour when I lost connection again. The next thing I tried is to hook it directly to the router and turn off the wireless to see if that worked any better, connection still dropped. When the guy was over here replacing the lines, he mentioned that he had just come from another house on our block having similar problems so now I'm thinking maybe they have to fix the lines on the poles. It seems to me that the most likely thing is that the connection is dropping from the ISP to the router, what I could try before I called them up to tell them the problem is definitely not on my end.

My router at work is working fine, at least for for its connection to the internet, it keeps dropping the connection.The router will be connected to the internet for say an hour or 2, sometimes more, and then it drops the connection. Usually a router restart(either from the web interface or by pressing the on/off button) fixes it, but only for a while.

Internet Connection Keeps Dropping When Using Router?

Jun 10, 2012

My internet connection keeps dropping when using my router. I will have internet connection for a few hours and then it will drop. I thought it was a bad router (I had a Netgear N300 that is about 2 or 3 years old) so I bought a new Cisco Linksys EA2700 N600 router and the same thing happens. I can connect to the internet through just the modem and it works fine. Is is just a setting or something? BTW, I have an Arris cable modem that is several years old and my ISP is Suddenlink, and am running Windows XP Professional SP3.

Wired Internet Connection Dropping Out

Jul 12, 2011

Basically for no apparent reason one day when I came home several weeks ago my wired internet connection has become almost unusable. The connection to the internet severs every couple of minutes, sometimes every few seconds. The only way to get my connection back is to either wait around half an hour and it fixes itself, or to use the ''diagnose connection problems'' in the INternet Explorer tools menu. For some reason this tool fixes the problem nearly everytime, how often I have to use this tool and wait for the internet. I cannot download many important things I need as the connection keeps severing and the download is 'interrupted' (within Google Chrome).I first tried reformatting my whole system, but to no avail. I am running a fresh installation of Windows XP service Pack 3.

I have a cable running from my wall (ADSL conection I believe) that connects into a router. This router is then connected to ANOTHER router via a blue network cable (Im not quite sure the reason for this my step-dad had it set up like this when I moved here. I think it is because the 2nd router does not have a jack that fits the ADSL line coming from the wall). I am wired directly from my computer into the first router. I have tried connecting to the other router to no avail. Chrome generally tells me that there is a DNS error when I try to load a page and the connection drops out. [code] Could it be a faulty router, faulty cables, or a software issue? I have the latest network adapter installed and power save mode is switched OFF. I would like to know if replacing the cables/router would fix things.

BTHomeHub 3.0 Keeps Dropping Internet Connection?

Jan 29, 2012

I've had the new BT Infinity connection for about 4 months now, and everything has been ok - its very fast. But over the last 2 weeks the internet keeps dropping for some reason. The wifi connection is strong, but the internet isn't working. It works perfectly with Ethernet cable, but wifi doesn't want to work. I've used the inSSIDer program to find a free/empty channel as there are many bt hubs around, but it has no use.

D-Link DIR-825 :: Internet Connection Dropping

Mar 4, 2012

I have seen several posts regarding internet connection dropping. Mine does the same. I have a cable modem in front of the router. The router is setup with two SSID's (one 2.4GHz, and the other 5GHz). So often the connectivity to ENET drops, forcing me to power cycle the router. Other then the two SSID's, the router setup is factory default. I need to debug this. I have noriced that the DNS IP addresses do not show up under setup. Where do I start?

Internet Connection Dropping Due To Ip Address Conflict?

Jun 17, 2012

This has been happening for a few months and I have had to reset the router every time and it usually works. I have 3 laptops, normally 2 are used and a roku streaming player connected to the tv. Both laptops are on windows 7 and sometimes the wifi suddenly stops working [sometimes only stops for some devices] even though i am still connected to the my router. Some times, a popup comes up that says that windows has detected an ip address conflict, so I think that that is the problem, but when I try to do ip/release, renew, it says that the media is disconnected to wireless network connection 2 even while i can access the internet.

Internet Connection Dropping And Reconnecting Every Few Minutes?

Feb 18, 2011

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).

WRT54GX - Internet Randomly Dropping Connection?

Sep 13, 2011

I have the unfortunate experience of persistent connection issues with my Comcast cable internet. Periodically (sometimes several times in an hour) my connection dies, and then resumes within a minute or two. It is not a long downtime but it is long enough to disrupt whatever I happen to be doing on the internet (Skype, messaging, online gaming, uploading, downloading, etc.) which can be very irritating. I know enough about computers that I've built several of my own machines, but I am no expert in networking by a long shot...

Here are my internet specs: Comcast broadband with RCA DHG535-2 cable modem plugged into a wireless Linksys router model WRT54GX.

I know the connection issues don't lie with my wireless card because I have two computers and they both drop at the same time. The issue HAS to be either the router or modem (or Comcast), but from all the other posts I've read of similar issues, I suspect it might be the modem.

Netgear WNA3100 - Internet Connection Keeps Dropping

Internet connection seems like it drops and comes back up every couple of seconds. Not just little drops, wont load a web page and lag me out of games drop. Usefully only for a few hours at most. But its been a full day this time. Ive been searching all all over the place and nothing is working. So with that I have a Netgear WNA3100 picking up wireless from my land lords up stairs. Not sure their router Id but Im pretty sure the problem is on my end. Ive downloaded and reinstalled updated driver, and I have "excellent" connection all the time, according to windows and netgears software. Ive tried pinging and I only lost one packet once (at out of probably 100 pings, literally Ive been sitting here for a while, to the ip and some sites.

Internet Connection Dropping Every Couple Of Minutes

May 7, 2011

I just have recently been experiencing some dropping off the internet.. My phone company has been out here and has done tests, and changed out my wireless modem with a new one, switched me to a new high speed port.. cleaned up the cables outside my house.. installed a new jack.. and we have yet to solve this intermittent dropping and reconnecting... I am starting to wonder, if not anything else with my outside line.. is there something else causing the problem. I switched my channel from 11 to 9.. *my neighbor is on channel 11* thought maybe his was interfering with mine .I am using WPA, I have disabled the power adapter from "saving power" in the adapter settings..

When the internet does drop off the DSL light on the modem goes out, and then comes back on..its not blinking off and on, just off.. then waits.. then reconnects to the net, it's almost like it's refreshing or something every couple of minutes.The modem is a Siemens Speedstream 6520

WNR1000v2 - Routers Internet Connection Keeps Dropping Off?

i have been having issues with my internet for months now, my router just randomly loses its internet connection over and over everyday. I used to have slow internet with verizon so i changed to comcast and after i changed to comcast this problem started, when i called comcast they said that it has to be interference from an unknown source. I have a Wireless-N 150 Router model WNR1000v2 and it came with a modem. Things i have tried are changing my security to WPA2-PSK[AES] which it saiid would increase my connectivity..did not, i have changed my channel also didnt solve the problem. I have had this problem with 2 different routers and modems so far. And i have 2 desktops and 2 laptops connected to this. 1 desktop is hooked straight into the router and the other 3 are wireless.

D-Link DIR-615 :: Internet Connection Intermittently Dropping?

Nov 18, 2012

The old 615 has been working very well for some years now, but the last couple of days we have had to turn it off and on again to get internet. It has happened 3 times in the last 24 hours. The globe light on the router remains green, and the notification icon on windows 7 doesn't show any problems yet we cant connect to the web. I've been looking on the forum and trying to understand some of the solutions and checklists already posted, but they don't make a whole load of sense to me unfortunately.

The firmware on the router is 2.27. The only change I have made to the system is that my wife's lan card seems to have died a death last week, and her computer is now connected by wireless. My computer is now the only one connected to the router by a lan cable.

There is something I don't understand. Under setup / network there is a dhcp reservations section. Pretty much every device seems to have a reserved IP address, and some of the devices that are reserved we no longer own. My son does gaming and wants a constant IP address, and my computer might need a permanent IP (don't know - just guessing here). Should all the other computers be allowed to sort themselves an IP every time they log on? Most of the devices have expires never, and some of the devices have the blue link that I can click for revoke and reserve with a time by them.

Am I barking up the wrong tree here and this lot has nothing to do with the dropping connection? What do the revoke / reserve and times mean? What happens when the lease runs out? Will the connection drop on that computer and it will have to try and connect itself again, or does it start a new lease every time it logs on to the router?

D-Link DIR-825 :: Consistently Dropping Connection To Internet / LAN

I have just purchased a DIR-825. Set up went through without a hitch. (I have it wired, not wireless at the moment). But I am consistently dropping my connection to the internet/Lan . I have a dual boot system (WinXP-Win7) and it's happening on both platforms, so i know it's not an OS problem. I have reverted to my old DIR-604 out of frustration. I was hoping you might have suggestions or a potential solution before I contact customer support for official assistance (if it exists) on this matter.

Belkin F9K1002 V3 Router Dropping Internet Connection

Dec 25, 2011

I recently changed my internet connection from a very slow adsl connection (im a LONG way from the exchange) to a moderatly faster vdsl connection. With the upgrade, they force me to use a modem that looks like it was made 20 years ago (although they say its had all the internals upgraded a month ago) leaving me to use a seperate router for wireless signal. I bought a bellkin F9K1002 v3 and after a little hassle had it up and running, the network connection between all the systems is great, but the router drops the internet connection every 30-120 seconds, for 15-20 seconds each time. I have about 10 devices connecting, but problem is there with just 1 connection wired or wireless.

I've tried calling my ISP (who will not touch router settings) and belkin tech support (who sound like they touched their first computer about 22 seconds ago) with no improvement. I've connected directly to the modem and had perfect connection for 12 hours, ruling it out of the equasion. I've disconnected all systems but one at a time, trying on 3 systems, with no improvement. I've turned off firewall, WPS, tried multiple wireless settings (channels and such) updated firmware all with no improvement. Here's a sample of the system log on the router:

Jan/1/2000 00:27:59 WAN PPPoE client receive
Jan/1/2000 00:28:00 WAN PPPoE client PAP
