Multiple PCs Hooked Up To A LAN - Internet Disconnects Constantly
May 31, 2011
So i have 2 laptops and various phones and iPods hooked up to my network via the wireless and have 3 computers, 2 PS3s, 2 XBox 360s hooked up via LAN cable (These are not always running all at the same time). From time to time (it varies on time of day) the internet disconnects from all the computers in the house but the LAN stays connected. It will sometimes come back online if you wait anywhere from 30 seconds to half an hour at times. Manually restarting the modem by unplugging it for a while and plugging it back in sometimes works, at other times it does not. We replaced the switch and the router so far trying to eliminate them as the problem to no avail. We have not replaced the modem yet. My ipconfig info is below:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6002]

I have ATT Uverse Internet, and an att uverse gateway, and on my computer the wireless keeps randomly disconnecting. Over the past few weeks it has started doing this more and more often, for instance today I can't get connection for more than 5 minutes before it disconnects.
So he has a Laptop which keeps disconnecting from his router but the time between the disconnects are completely random, sometimes it will be 10 seconds and other times it will be 4 hours.I have tried to sort it by the obvious ways of updating drivers, repair connection ect but nothing seems to work. Even when connected via an Ethernet cable the problem persists.I have kinda contained the problem to his laptop or the router they are using because the other laptop they have never disconnects and works perfectly fiine.
After years of my laptop running flawlessly, I've started having major problems connecting to my router/the internet.I noticed the problems started happening after I did a huge 14gb download.. My computer constantly but randomly disconnects for random intervals of time. If I'm lucky it'll connect just fine, but once it disconnects, it'll most likely not work for quite some time.The other computers/cellphones/etc aren't having any problems with connecting, and it's only my laptop.Sometimes it seems to go on a "Identifying...(Name) No internet access" loop, or it connects to the router, but I get no internet access. And whenever I troubleshoot it, I never get a consistent reason as to why it isn't working.The laptop is an Asus running Windows 7..
I've been using Frontier on my laptop since the holidays but recently have had trouble with my wireless connection. I can connect automatically but the connection is lost every 10-15 minutes. After a moment the computer reconnects but this prevents me from making any downloads and watching videos.
I just bought a m14x alienware and I have the Killer-Wireless 1202 wireless card on it, and I have a 2Wire router from AT&T running in ch 1 at optimum 10. Also, I have another laptop that connects to the same router and this does not happen to it at all.I can connect to the internet fine but when i start browsing, I randomly disconnect from the internet and connect to it again within seconds, and my laptop never shows that it looses internet. I first noticed it when I was using Skype, i started browsing the internet while I was in a call and that's when it happens most, it disconnects, puts the call on hold and says that I'm offline on skype, and within a few seconds I'm back on. This also happens when I'm gaming and it really becomes a hassle when i have to start the game up again because of these disconnections. Rarely i do see a screen from the actual router to check the wired connections of the router and then test the connection when opening a website (any website), when i press test connection (without doing anything) it tells me that the connection has been resolved and to close my browser and to open a new one. However, most of the times, the pages load fine when I'm browsing, I do notice there is a small lag when the disconnections happen, but the page loads up fine after a few seconds, no need to refresh.
I tried releasing and renewing my IP but i get a message that no action can be taken when media is disconnected? I don't know if that has anything to do with it.I also updated the Wireless 1202 Driver with the bigfoot update, although I'm not sure if i did this right, I unzipped all the files where it told me C:/user/driver/wireless (example) but i never got a window to proceed after that, and when i went to the folder and ran the application, it asked me if I wanted to uninstall all components, which is when i canceled and left the newly created files there.
I'm not having an NAT issue, but my e2000 is constantly disconnecting from XBOX Live. About every 3-5 minutes I get disconnected. My wireless is working perfectly, this is only an issue with XBOX Live.
and I have double checked every setting. I've set the MTU, unchecked UPnP, entered port forwarding range to XBOX's static IP address, and set the DMZ to my XBOX's MAC address. So, what is causing my router to constantly disconnect?
My cable tv was working great until we just hooked up the wireless internet & it went out,well basically out,its all fuzzy now w barely a picture & no sound,All the wires inside & out seem to be tight & secure,i was trying to figure this out before calling the cable company,i just cant figure it out.
Some background on a scale of 1-to-10 with 10 being Sheldon Cooper and 1 being a computer less grandparent, I'm about a 6. I'm home from school for the summer and trying to access my parent's DSL by adding my router as a middleman. I tried the basic hookup (wall->modem-->router-->computer) using a Motorola MSTATEA modem and a Cisco E1000 linksys router
I just bought a DIR-835 Router. the wireless works good-the problem however is the PC I have hooked up to the cable box, now the internet works only occasionally. I have tried disabling the firewall ,etc. The only time I can get the internet on the cable box connected PC to work is when I reset the router. I have a Gateway PC with Windows XP, I use Google Chrome. I assume it must be a Router setting that needs correcting. My previous D-Link router worked fine with the cable connected PC.
For home use, I have a Windows Vista PC which is hooked up to the Internet via a wireless EV/DO modem that plugs into a USB port. I just bought an iPad and for connectivity, I then bought a WRT120N wireless router. But I cannot attach the EV/DO modem to the WRT120N since the EV/DO only has a USB port. I plugged the PC into one of the 4 ports of the WRT120N and the iPad sees the router, but what I would like is that it also sees the internet when the PC is online via the EV/DO modem. Is there a way to configure this? I realize that the PC would always have to be switched on if I want to have the iPad online, but for the time being I am ok with that.
We have 2 Dell laptops and 1 Mac book all connected via a wireless router. Everything worked just fine until we got a Mac desktop which we connected via Ethernet cord for my husband's work. Now the wireless connection to our laptops disconnects at least 3-4 times per day and we need to unplug everything from the router and plug back in to get it to work again. The Ethernet connection to the desktop doesn't seem to have any issues.
So for the longest time now my internet just goes in and out constantly.When I moved out of my parents house and got my own internet hooked up it all started. Internet would go in and out a lot both on wireless and when I was hooked up to local connection. I had Charter and told them and they gave me a new modem but problem stayed so I just assumed it was the wireless router I had bought. I moved to another city and am still using the same wireless router and got another modem from Charter in my new house. Problem is still there and is way worse.About every 5 mins I lose connection for about 30 secs. It always says connected though but pages won't load and says connection issues but like I said my wireless connection always shows excellent connection. About once a week it will go out and not come back unless I unplug the modem and router and plug it all back in.
My internet connection has been dropping constantly since the beginning of this year. I cut out for ~10 seconds then regain connection. This gets annoying especially when I'm gaming (Left 4 Dead 2, Counter-Strike, etc.). The modem lights stay on as well as my router lights. I have already called in three of my ISP's (Time Warner Cable) technicians all of whom think they have fixed the problem but haven't. I have changed my modem, router, ethernet cords; one of the technicians also changed the head of the cable wire outside at the cable box. I have also tried connecting the modem directly to my PC, but the same problem still occurs. I don't believe it's a problem with my PC because it's relatively new (~1 year) and all the other computers in the house cuts out as well.
Whenever I am browsing the web, or listening to an internet radio, or even gaming, after about 30 minutes my internet will cut out. The weird thing though, is that it will come back when I close the game/browser. It seems that whatever tab or application I have running the longest nullifies my internet connection after awhile and will not turn back on until I close out of that specific application.
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.
My Internet will disconnect & then reconnect constantly. I have 2 laptops & they are both on my home network & I have no trouble with the other one so I assume there is nothing wrong with both the Internet service & router. The laptop with the problem is an acer/aspire 5720z. The Wireless Network Adapter is a Atheros AR5007EG. When I go to the Adapter Properties the status reads "The device is working properly". When I go to Control Panel>Network & Sharing Center my Wireless Network Connection Signal Strength reads Excellent. The operating system is Windows Vista Home Premium.
I CONSTANTLY lose connection to the net .Then it takes forever to rejoin the net.I know this PC has ASUS Wireless Console 3 installed on it. I have, in the past, tried a few fixes offered on websites for suggestions when you lose wireless connection (i.e. Setting a static IP to connect to, turning on firewalls, etc.) none have worked.
I am using an HP Pavilion dm4 laptop, and I have been having issues with the internet. The internet on my computer constantly is going down even though my network is not having any issues. It goes down every hour or so and I have to press the wireless button once to turn it off and once to turn it back on in order for my computer to regain internet access. This just began happening in the last few days.
i have an asus laptop that had a rogue virus...i brought it back to zero to the manufacturers settings...now i cant use wireless i lose connection when i take the cord out of the (phone jack looking like thingy) to my router (netgear) how do i use the wireless or find a connection?
i recently reinstalled my Windows 7 and im having wireless problems now which is didnt have before.I now takes along time to load pages and randomly disconnects. It has the exclamation mark next to the 5 bars of connection. Im currently sitting on 4 bars which is normal but it is really frustrating especially when im trying to do my project that it just keeps disconnecting. I use the RealTek 8185 extensible 802.11b/g wireless device.
I have recently built a new computer and now I am having trouble with my network connection. When I was done I directly connected it to my 2wire modem with the Ethernet cable.There was no connection until I downloaded the LAN driver from the CD that came with the motherboard [ASUS M5A88-V EVO ATX]. It worked for a few days and then the connection just started dropping. The trouble shoot in Windows 7 fixed it - but only for a while until it didn't work at all. Restarting the computer restored the connection and usually gave me about a few hours to work with, but a few days later all I had were a few minutes. Other than this computer I have two laptops [Windows 7] and a desktop [Windows XP] which the internet runs smoothly on when hardwired to the modem and I didn't have to install anything. Some messages I get from the trouble shoot are:LAC doesn't have valid IP configuration Default gateway not available Unidentified network?
We have a wireless router with about 8 devices connecting to it at any one time. For some reason, 1 laptop constantly loses internet service, it's still connected to the network but it's "local only" connection. Restarting the laptop doesn't solve the problem, only restarting the router.Now, I know very little about this kind of stuff, but to me it seems like an issue with IP addresses? It currently happens at least once a day.
I called my internet provider to come fix the problem and my internet was working PERFECTLY. Until, it started to mess up again. I don't know, what's wrong with it AT all. The Linksys box is working fine, the ROUTER is working BUT, my internet keeps dropping and takes HOURS upon HOURS to come back on, UNTIL I reset the Linksys box. Then it stays on for a bit. A few hours or a few minutes then suddenly, "No internet access."
My linksys router all of a sudden stopped recognizing the 3 LAN lines that are hooked up to it, we are only able to access the internet via wireless. any suggestions on why the router would all of a sudden stop recognizing the LAN lines?
I'm running an Asus G74sx, and it keeps losing connection to the internet (e.g. Youtube videos stop loading, disconnecting from online games constantly, my voice fizzing and breaking on VOIP programs like TeamSpeak 3 or Skype, etc). While the laptop clearly loses connection to the internet, it doesn't loses connections to the router (The signal strength remains excellent) and I've also tried using the cable, which doesn't fix the problem. The other computers using the same router work fine, though. These problems started about a week ago and I can't perform a system restore as the restore point available is from 05/26 (Yesterday). While I'm not an expert in the area, I've looked on several forums to see if there was a possible solution and done the following to try and solve the problem (none of which worked):
1- Restarting computer 2- Restarting router and modem 3- Opening the cmd and typing "ipconfig /release" and "ipconfig /renew" 4- Using a cable connection instead of wireless 5- Updating my wireless driver (Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 6150) 6- Unchecking the "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power" on the driver configurations
i lose internet connectivity constantly although i still have WLAN connectivity. my connection is lost every 5 to 20 minutes. it dropped my connection in the middle of an A+ exam troubleshooter is useless. sometimes it says DNS unavailable. sometimes it say default gateway unavailable. but when i run ipconfig, DNS and Gateway fields look fine. it's happened when connected to my wireless cable modem (Ubee brand) the wireless hotspot on my mobile phone (an HTC myTouch) and now on my Clear Wireless portable wifi hotspot (Apollo model)[code]
As of around a week ago, I've been experiencing a strange thing with my internet connection. I live in apartments that provide internet to everyone that lives there, and had been living here for a few months before this started happening.I now constantly have my internet crashing in the middle of browsing/gaming. I will either open up my laptop to the internet not working already, or it will work, but crash randomly while I am using it.
Trying to load a page on google chrome, it will show a message saying DNS Lookup Failed, and an icon will pop up in the right corner of my screen with a yellow (!) triangle. If I hover over it, it will say no internet access.I've followed the few steps they had on there, but none of them worked. I've never had a problem like this before, and haven't made any modifications to anything on my computer lately, so I am pretty confused as to why this is happening. I know it is something on my end, because my roommate's internet is just fine, and even used my ethernet cord on her computer, and no problems at all.
Ok, I have a huge problem with my wireless connection. It will constantly lose connection to the internet from my PC, IPod, Laptop etc. What will happen is a yellow warning triangle appears which tells me I've lost internet access. I have had the modem checked and replaced by the ISP with no success so it's likely that it's not a problem on their end. I've changed the wireless channel to move it away from my neighbours with no success.
Here is a copy of my ipconfig /all when the connection dropped out:
