Internet Keeps Disconnecting Randomly?

Apr 13, 2011

My internet will disconnect and reconnect randomly, nothing works every time to fix it, the time online and offline is random, sometimes it works when i turn on the computer, sometimes it doesn't , sometimes it stops after a while, sometimes restarting works.

I am running Windows XP on a desktop computer with the most current service pack installed and I have a linksys wireless router installed in the computer. I know the router isn't linksys, I think it may be netgear. I have no way of connecting wired to the router. My bf's laptop running windows 7 is used wirelessly in the same room as my desktop and rarely has any problems connecting. I should mention that this problem also occurred on this computer while living in other locations and using different routers, but it was never this sporadic. It was best when used in conjunction with the linksys WRT54G router.

I realized today looking at the status of the wireless network connection that the network name and signal strength will disappear and reappear randomly, all while still saying I am connected and that I have sent and received packets, and sometimes randomly changing connection speed as well. Sometimes an alert bubble will pop up saying that my internet connection is connected and that I have excellent signal strength, with varying speeds, but the internet still doesn't work. Or sometimes it does work. How to access it.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Internet Is Disconnecting Randomly All Day

Jun 23, 2012

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 ?

Internet Connection Randomly Disconnecting / Reconnecting?

Jul 16, 2011

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.

Ethernet Keeps Randomly Disconnecting

Nov 26, 2012

It's plugged in via an Ethernet Cable from a Homeplug Adapter, since the modem is not in the same room as me. Basically, I've been having problems with the internet randomly disconnecting and for no reasons. There's some days where it'll go fine, no problems at all, other than a few things that always disconnects it, then there is days like today, where it keeps connecting every time I try to go to a webpage. I cannot seem to upload anything to the web (Youtube, Mediafire, etc.) without the internet disconnecting before it uploads. The only other problem that I've had constantly, even if it is working fine, is I cannot seem to do a video call on Skype or really use my webcam to broadcast online without my internet disconnecting. Also, when I play games via Steam such as TF2, Call Of Duty, etc., I have no problem with the internet at all, it works smoothly and never crashes when I play games. And the desktop is the only thing that ever has this problem. We have 1 other desktop, and 3 laptops (all connected wirelessly) and they do not disconnect from the internet at all. This has been going on for quite a while, and I'm still not certain on what is triggering it.

Cisco Router 1941W - WAN Keeps Disconnecting Randomly?

Oct 23, 2012

We are using Cisco router (1941W model) and our the WAN interface keeps going down randomly (sometimes happened twice within 1 hour, sometimes worked fine for 2-3 days before getting disconnected). After getting disconnected, if we unplug the cable that connects our router to the fiber terminal and then plug in back, everything works fine immediately.

We had asked our Internet Provider to come 3 times to check the network line, renew the fiber terminal and do some investigations, they said there should be no issue on their side. If it's true then there must be something wrong with the router.

We also enabled ip accounting on the router and saw very low rate of small packets coming to WAN interface.

During the downtime, LAN interface still worked fine.

Dell :: N5010 Wireless Randomly Disconnecting And Failing

May 28, 2013

I've had a N5010 laptop from a few years without many problems, using Win7 60b. Just a few days ago the wireless connection started failing saying there is no network available and that "there was a problem", what I had to do is right click the icon on the task bar, select the troubleshooting option that windows offers to fix it automatically, and after a minute or so the wireless is activated and working again, but just for a while since it lasts about 3~20 minutes and the problem starts again.

Other devices (like phones or other laptops) don't have this problem, so it's not a router issue.I've tried updating windows, re-installing the official drivers, rebooting the system, etc. I've also discovered that ethernet connection is just not working, as if it weren't there. There is no device shown on the windows device manager for ethernet.

Internet Keeps Disconnecting?

Oct 4, 2012

internet won't stay connected for more than 2-4 minutes at a time. I recently got a new modem, as recently as two days ago. It connects fine but within 2-4 minutes it disconnects then reconnects itself within 20 seconds. It's a plusnet modem and in the corner of my screen I have a little computer screen with 3 signals coming out if it which flash. It's called Wireless Network Connection Status. Beside it are 4 bars not too dissimilar to mobile signal. They too are green and when I click into it it's called Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility.

Internet Keeps Disconnecting

Jan 6, 2012

Haven't been here in a while after going to grad school. My internet keeps on getting disconnected, and I keep having to unplug the power cord, wait 10 seconds, and then it works again. But this has been happening quite frequently. Is it because I need a new router? It is Linksys SRX 200 router it says.

Why Internet Keep Disconnecting

Mar 17, 2012

i recently bought a wireless USB adapter so i can connect to my router as my older one broke. The one i had before worked fine and was easy able to connect to my router with high connection, but with this new adapter i can still connect but have pretty low signal like 2 or 3 bars and whenever i try downloading anything or try watching films or just surfing the web for like 10 minutes it says limited access with a yellow exclamation mark on the signal bar and the only way to reconnect to the internet is to first disconnect and reconnect every time.

My internet crashes randomly for no reason I can easily see.

Internet Randomly Shuts Off?

Feb 5, 2013

This has been going on for a few months now, but I'm just finally getting around to finding out the issue. So basically, this is what's happening; I'm randomly browsing some pages just fine, then I try to go to another page, and I can't load the page. I try to open a new page after that, it won't load. My internet still says it's at full bar internet access. I can somehow still use pages that are open (Such as a chat program, I can still chat in there, but I can't load any pages) for as long as a few hours after the internet supposedly shuts off. Everybody else in my household doesn't, and hasn't ever had this problem before, so I seriously doubt it's the modem. I've tried moving my laptop into those places to see if it's a problem with reception in the area I'm at, though it doesn't. The only thing that will turn the internet back on again, is a computer restart. After a fresh restart, the internet will last anywhere between 4 hours to a couple of days before doing that.?

D-link Dir-615 Keeps Disconnecting From Internet?

Sep 7, 2012

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!

Internet Continuously Disconnecting

Happens every few hours, but is fixed by reconnecting my router. Although this is inconvenient because I run an IRC chat and a small web server. I'm not sure if those would cause such a problem, but I hope not

Internet Constantly Disconnecting?

Jul 4, 2012

I am connected to the router with a cable , a router which my internet provider supplied me with.The problem used to happen before , occasionally , but the disconnecting has drastically increased lately , and these days it has become unbearable , it occurs at least once every hour , especially when i'm playing a game online or so.The disconnects last very shortly , or until i reset my router or disable/enable my network in network connections.I have 2 more laptops in the house , connected via wireless , and they've had no issues with this.The first time these problems occurred i was able to fix it just by doing the windows troubleshoot, which lead to an error saying "Default gateway is not available".I found a lot of threads on the internet regarding this issue , and tried all of them but none seemed to work.

I tried downloading newest drivers from my motherboard site first , then from Realtek's site, then deleting old drivers via DriverSweeper aswell , just in case , but it did nothing.I tried changing the Speed & Duplex to 100mbp/s Full Duplex , which has solved the issue for some , but again it did nothing.I called my internet provider , was told to use static IP address and type it in manually and if it didn't work to try plugging the cable into another slot on the router ,And after all those things , i feel like the problems is even bigger now. I now no longer get the "Default gateway is not available" error , and the only solution is to reset router or disable/enable network , which leads to the network being "unidentified" for some time before it connects.

Internet Disconnecting From Faceplate?

Feb 14, 2011

My bb connection is very unstable and disconnects randomly whenever it feels like it. I have a master socket with one extention (slave I believe its called) however there is nothing plugged into the extention at all and my telephone and bb are connected to the master with a filter. After reading a few threads I have tried some tips which were to disconnect the bell wire (number 3), replace the faceplate, and filter with new ones and try another router none of which have made a difference. I have now removed the faceplate and plugged directly into the test socket. This definitely works and keeps the connection alive for longer sometimes a whole day but then it goes again but definately no where near as often, (she says as the Internet disconnects!)We have several things connected to to router which are up to 3 laptops using windows 7 and vista, up to 3 phones and 2 xboxes however these are never all connected at once but when the connection goes it disconnects all that are connected. I have also been with 3 different providers and this has been the same with all of them. The house is only 9 years old so I don't believe it can be that the wiring is too old but maybe that there is a dodgy connection somewhere?
