Downloads for a while, then internet stops working

Question: Downloads for a while, then internet stops working

Well, Im addicted to Azureus and fan subbed anime. So, Im always downloading and uploading a lot.

My problem is that after a while ( a few hours ) of solid downloading/uploading, the internet will completely cease to work on this computer. I have to reboot it. The other computer that is on the same router, still gets onto the net fine.

I have a Intel Pro 1000 CT integrated network card on my Abit IC7-G with the newest drivers. Is there something I can configure differently to prevent this from happening? I hate leaving downloads/uploads over night to find that 3 hours into them, they just quit working.

Preferred Solution: Downloads for a while, then internet stops working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Downloads for a while, then internet stops working

same thing happens to me when downloading from newsgroups :-(

THE PROBLEM:
My usual browser is google chrome but lately (exactly a week ago) the Internet stopped working after a while.
(NOTE: PREVIOUS POSTS HAVEN'T WORKED NOR FIXED MY PROBLEM, PLEASE KEEP READING)
The Internet service stops working as if someone just unpluged my ethernet cable.
And minutes or seconds after that, my windows explorer stops working, taskbar and the entire system stops working.
I can still change windows with the keyboard shortcut but nothing else from there.
The ohly way my Internet and pc works fine is by safe mode with networking.

SOLVING THE PROBLEM:
I already tried to search for viruses or malware by cmd with the "-r -h -s" and the "/scannow" methods but nothing.
Already searched for viruses with boith of my antiviruses (panda and avast).
I have no saved point to reboot my system to a past saved poiht (the last saved point is the same day that my pc stopped working).

SPECULATIONS OF THE PROBLEM:
Long ago I disconnected the side panel from the pc box which includes a fan and lately my pc temp have raised up to 50 when before it was around the 30's or 40's.
The days this problem started I wasn't home and a blackout happened while my pc was still on.

Hello all, I hope my note finds you doing well. My computer runs Windows XP SP2 and Internet Explorer 6. Lately I have been getting messages from various websites that they do not support my browser and that I should upgrade to IE 7 or 8. This is happening more and more, especially with sites I use frequently (Facebook, ect.)I tried to upgrade to IE8 first. I found out immediately that the internet would not run, even though my cable modem connection was working just fine. I uninstalled it, my system automatically went back to IE6, and once again the internet worked fine.I still wanted to try an upgrade. In addition to it not being supported by various web pages, I heard the IE6 was increasingly vulnerable to spyware, malware, etc. This time I tried IE7. Unfortunately, I got the same response "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage."When this happened after installing IE8, I did some online research to troubleshoot the problem. After IE7 was another bust, I tried to apply the methods suggested:I clicked on IT Tools, Internet Options, and then the Advanced tab. I restored the Advanced Settings and Reset Internet Explorer Settings. I restarted IE, but still, no internet pages displayed.I ran Network Diagnostics for Windows XP. I got the message that a repair was needed for the Winsock catalog. I let it run, it said the repair was successful and I restarted my computer. Alas, no change.I tried to reset the Winsock catalog via the CMD prompt as well. Start > Ru... Read more

Answer:Upgrading Internet Explorer Stops Internet From Working

Is there any reason why you haven't downloaded SP3 yet? You probably need to do that before downloading IE8.

Hi,

I came across a really odd issue on a machine of a client.

The internet connection works. E-mail (Outlook) works fine (send/receive). I can open web pages in IE6/7 fine. Pages load, images show (nothing pulled from cache).

But when I attempt to 'download' certain files, it simply fails. It takes a moment to load, progress bar stays empty, then gives a warning that the server did not respond/file not found etc. This seems to occur on certain file types, but the behavior is still rather indiscriminate. ZIP, EXE, PDF, REG, MS (ASCII text files FYI) don't load, but other files like HTML, JPG, PNG, TXT and plain text files with random extensions (e.g. TGS) do load. If it is some sort of a new Windows security thing, then it is pretty broken.

This happened with IE6.x. When I was unable to fix it I then ran Windows Update, and installed IE7, along with all other available updates hoping it would fix the issue. The problem persists, however.

I have disabled the Windows Firewall, IE popup blocker, virus scanner but no luck. I cannot completely disable McAfee without wrecking it, but I don't think that's the bugger anyway.
At any rate, I would expect some sort of security warning if something decided to block file downloads.

This behavior started most likely because of a botched Windows Media Player auto-update, or maybe a bad Windows Update: a new version of WMP was installed, but not yet configured by first use. I also found a Windows Update process hogging the... Read more

Answer:internet connection working, downloads not

Bump. :)

By the way, I'm not sure I posted this in the right forum. It doesn't have to do with the internet connection itself, and while it does specifically apply to IE, it may be caused by something else (Media Player/WinUpdate).

Hi everyone.
For the past 2 weeks or so I've been having trouble with my internet. After a while of using my computer (about a day or so),
my internet will just completely stop working.

I thought it might have been something with my firewall, but when I disabled it the problem still happened. I ran a virus scan and came up with nothing, so its not that. I'm not sure what else to try, so I came here.

I hope someone can help me try to fix this problem, thanks in advance.

Hi,

Don't know what the problem is but my internet just stops working after browsing for a while. I've tried running AVG, registry mechanic and spybot, closing zonealarm but nothing helps. Happens with both firefox and internet explorer. Usually I start using firefox, it stops. Then I switch to internet explorer, it stops. I even tried using google chrome and then that stopped.

I think AVG found a virus around the time this started happening: Trojan horse Downloader.Zlob.AHEP but this was moved to the virus vault, so I assume AVG disabled it.

I could be on my computer for hours at a time and after approximately 6 hours of being logged in, my internet browser just stops working. When I try going to a web page, it doesn't even try to load. It gives a very quick blink to the icon on the tab but that's it. I'm not receiving any windows errors. The way that I've been working around this problem has been to log off(or shut it down) then log back on, then I have a few more hours before it does it again. When the browser stops working, "bittorrent" still runs (a program that needs internet access). This isn't a recent problem that I'm having. This has been going on for almost a year now. I don't know why I waited so late to ask for help but I need a solution because I'm fed up with this problem. I'm running Windows7. Thanks

I'm using Windows XP home. Cable with wireless router.

My internet connection fades away - but not completely. My email client is still able to log in and retrieve messages (pop3), I can still log into my ISP's SMTP server and send messages, and I can connect to a few internet sites (maybe 1 out of 15 that I've tried).

After restarting the computer, browsing with Firefox and with IE, everything is fine for 20 or 30 minutes. Then, without making any changes, the computer will not be able to connect to most websites. This is on the desktop, the only computer hardwired to the router.

I know my actual cable connection is fine - other computers I have are unaffected, still able to connect to any site. Also, I'm still able to connect to a couple websites and use an email client.

Do I have a mystery firewall?

I'm using Norton Internet Security. Windows firewall is disabled. I'm not sure what else is relevant...

Thanks for any ideas!

Welcome to Major Geeks!

Please read ALL of this message including the notes before doing anything.

Pleases follow the instructions in the below link:

and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.
**** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not. MGtools will frequently run even when all other tools will not.

After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:

If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:

I have an older computer. It is probably 6 to 8 years old. It is a HP pavilion and is a XP.

I can be online and just out of the blue, it will not pull anything up and I just keep getting page cannot be found, ect. ect. Last night when this happened, my email, OE, still worked in sending and receiving messages though. I tried for hours to pull up a web page, any web page and it would not.

I called my internet company and they talked me through all the little steps in the black box (as you can tell, I am a real computer wiz! NOT). That worked the time before when this happened, but not last night. They said it was a problem with my computer, not with my connection.

Anyway, is there anything I can do myself to see if it can be fixed? I just use my computer to play and pay bills, so I hate to spend money on a new one for that.

Well, the first thing to do would be to try reinstalling your internet browser (internet explorer?), or try using a different one like firefox, opera... If all else fails, format your drive and reinstall windows. Fell free to ask if you need further instruction and let us know what you achieved.

Answer:Internet stops working after a while

Hi zijincheng,

Do you have DHCP enabled on all the computers? Perhaps IP conflict, is there's only 4 IP limited in your router.

You may try assigning Static IP's on all the computers and see if that helps.

I have Windows XP and cable internet. When I get on the internet, I can stay on one website for a while, but when I try to get onto another a page comes up that says that the "Page cant be displayed" and it "Cant find Server". Also when i get on the internet, get off of it, then try to get back on the same page comes up. Someone told me I have spyware (I don't really know what that is), and I've used Ad-Aware, but that didn't work. Please help me!!! What can I do to fix it?

i have windows xp and my internet stops working after a while, mostly after not being used for a period of time. it happens with IE and firefox. nothings wrong with the connectivity/wiring nothings wrong with the modem or ip or anything

firefox loads up a blank screen and says done, IE gives me the "this page cannot be displayed" page. msn messenger would keep me logged on but wont allow me to send or recieve messages. it keeps me on world of warcraft if the internet dies but if i close it after the internet dies it wont let me back in.

Hello,

My Internet stops working at seemingly random times. I have Windows XP Home Edition with SP3. I usually use Google Chrome. I'm using the newest stable version for it, not the beta. I use a Linksys wireless router.

When I'm using the Internet for miscellaneous tasks (it doesn't seem to be connected to any website, or such) nothing will load, as if my Internet were offline. When I look at the info in the Internet settings, it says everything should be working and that I'm connected to the Internet, etc., but in reality, nothing functions. The Internet isn't slow before this happens, or anything like that. There are no symptoms prior to this occurring.

Does anyone know what is causing this and how to fix it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I thank you in advance.

If you need any more information, just ask.

Hi

I have Windows 7 64Bit on a Fujitsu Amilo Desktop Pi3635A, brought brand new in Feb. I use AOL (UK) via a wireless connection.

When I log on (boot up PC) the network connection appears in the taskbar on the right bottom of screen and everything connects as it should, with a good level of wireless connection.

However, once on line I will get to a point where no web pages load and the connection stops. This is verified by the loss of a flashing light to the USB wireless Adapter.

Then if I attempt to enter the network connections either through my computer or via the taskbar, the spinning blue disc appears and I can get no further, I can not enter the connections at all no matter what I try.

I then have to force the PC to shut down via the power button as it wont log off by itself. Upon restarting everything starts up fine again in normal mode. Internet connects etc, then USB stops working after a short while. It can lock up after 1 or 2 minutes or it can last a few hours, but it always drops out in the end.

I have tried the power saving options and that makes no difference. According to instructions both my modem router and USB are windows 7 Compatable and AOL says its not their software, but then Fujitsu say its not their machine and say I should go back to Windows Vista 64 bit, which I think is not the solution when I paid for an Upgrade.........

Hi,

The internet browser stops working on my computer after a while. I saw a lot of people have similar problem and tried all different solution but nothing seems to work. Here are details of my issue

1) After I reboot the machine the internet stops working after 5-10 minutes.
2) This issue does not occur when in safe mode with networking.
3) I have used softwares to cleanup the spywares using adware and have also used software to clean up the registry but still the same problem.

Right now I am in safe mode and will go back to normal mode to provide some of the info requested in other threads.

Please help!

Hello everyone, yet again have a problem with my laptop. This time, the internet completely stopped working. Note I say internet, and not connection. Its currently hooked up (kinda) to a Linksys 802.11b Wireless Router (BEFW11S4), and although it probably doesn't matter, it hasn't worked since last night, which we lost power and the cable modem didn't reconnect til morning (..not sure when, it was working when I woke up.) Upon starting it up, no websites load. In the system tray, I still have the network connected icon, Excellent signal strength. No pages load. I also tried plugging in a network cable, going from the cable modem directly to the laptop, still nothing. Considering that, I believe its possibly a software issue. I'm currently doing a virus scan, but I just installed the software, so its no where near up-to-date. Does anyone know how to fix this / troubleshooting tips / previously had this happen? Thanks in advance.

For several months now, my internet stops working randomly. My internet provider is Yahoo DSL. I have a Speadstream 4100 or 5100 modem.
The problem is that sometimes, the modem will randomly restart itself. It should normally have 4 green lights for Power, Ethernet, DSL, and Internet. And the activity light blinks. But when the problem occurs, the lights turn off and go red, as if I just turned the modem on.
And then sometimes, I'll be using the internet when my laptop/computer will say that there's no internet access and the modem looks fine.
I tried calling Yahoo if there were known problems in my area for several months, but obviously there hasn't been any. The person helping me had me look at my Ethernet filter (the small box connected right next to the wall). It's old, but I have no idea what that might do with my problem.

I have no clue whatsoever might be causing this erratic problem. This happens on any laptop or computer that uses the internet as well. So it's not a problem with just one device.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
 

Answer:Internet frequently stops working

Hi:Sounds to me like the modem is starting to fail.
How old is it ?
Is it still covered under any kind of warranty from your ISP?
See if they will replace it.
Try running it without the filter.Unplug any phones the are sharing the dsl line.This is a long shot,but worth a try.

I have had this problem for 2 or 3 months. About 6 months ago I reformatted my computer and installed Windows XP (used to have ME). I am still running Service Pack 1. I also put in a wireless antenna in the back and was able to get great internet access using Netgear products. A few months later I installed Norton Antivirus 2005, and around the same time I added this thing with USB 2 and Firewire hubs. This caused the wireless internet to stop working. There is this icon in the system tray that tells me how much signal I have and it said there was no signal, though all the other computers in my house had signal. I disabled the firewire ports and it worked fine after that (until this new problem). I have a Gateway that is almost 4 years old with 624 RAM (i added some a while back) and 1.2GHz with an AMD Athlon Processor. I don't know what info is useful so I will try to give a lot. HERE is my newest problem: About 2 months after my last change to the computer I started having this problem. Whenever I go online, after a while the internet stops working. Sometimes it happens after only being online for a minute, sometimes it takes half an hour, sometimes it never happens before I turn off the computer again. But lately it has gotten worse, and I have to restart all the time. Restarting the computer brings the internet back, though for an unknown amount of time. Unlike before when my wireless signal would go out, this internet problem is more sneaky. The wireless signal strenght ... Read more

Answer:Internet stops working, CPU spikes

This is not an answer, but I have had a similar problem. I'm running XP pro sp2. Mine screen locks up. I still have mouse control and can usually go to start up to restart. Most of the time the computer freezes, then after several seconds the screen blanks out and comes back on then it seems to work for a while, but usually continues to get worse.

It's fairly hard to explain what happens but basically, say I'm playing some type of online game, all of a sudden anything server sided such as HP amounts, damage amounts, etc. just disappears but the animation runs fine such as attacking being hit, etc. All of a sudden it'll jump forwards and I'll take any damage and do any damage that had been happening until the issue started. This happens constantly and it's really frustrating but on top of that my internet will slow to a crawl..

Say I'm trying to send a message on Skype, it won't send for the longest time and I won't be able to recieve any or even open a new webpage until the problem fixes itself.

I've looked around a bit and thought I fixed the issue, I'm on wifi and multiple devices are connected but not always in use, and the forum I found suggested an ip conflict and said to open up command prompt release the ip with ipconfig /release and then renew it with ipconfig /renew.

For a little bit afterwards, sometimes seconds sometimes the rest of the day, the issue is resolved but eventually it comes around again.
I'm stumped and would appreciate any help what-so-ever. I'm not entirely sure what information I should include in my post, considering I've never visited this forum before, but I'll do my best to provide any information required.
 

Answer:Internet becomes very slow or stops working

Was/is there an IP conflict?

Do you get the same problem when connecting by ethernet instead of Wi-Fi?

Both Firefox 2.0.0.11 and IE7 will display "cannot display this page" but, MSN messenger and Full Tilt poker are still working. I click on connection and it looks normal, still working. I click on diagnose and repair and it thinks for a long time and then comes up with a window that says it cannot connect to Microsoft. The only solution to this problem that I have found is to do a hard reset(meaning just hold down the power button). If I just select reset or shutdown the computer seems to lock-up and sits on the shutting down screen. I also tried to hibernate the system and the same thing seems to happen since the system just stays on and doesn't shut off.I am on broadband through Quest now, but I just moved and this was happening before with my Cable one Broadband.

Answer:my internet browsing stops working

If existing connection continue but you can't establish new ones, I suspect the DNS servers are hiccuping. Perhaps try a different DNS provider. I use OpenDNS.com. Just place their IP numbers in your router.Alternately, reflashing the router's firmware might help.

I tried restarting my router twice but nothing has happened. I am now using another laptop in the house which uses an internal wireless card to connect to the router and everything is fine. My laptop that has no internet now uses a netgear wireless adapter to connect to the router, but i dont think my adapter is the problem either.

I checked my event viewer and under application there is a warning event ID 1517 NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM something about an application was still using the registry during log off. i researched this and some people recommended downloading UPH cleaner..i downloaded it and ran it, but my internet still does not work.

Occasionally, a page won't load in Firefox. This I think is sometimes due to a very temporary internet outage. But a couple seconds later, I'll be able to open up IE and load a page, but even after quitting completely out of FF, it won't load a page until I restart the computer.

Answer:Internet stops working after about 5 minutes.

Relevance 56.58%

Almost like clockwork my computer stops being able to respond to the internet after about 38 min.
Network support forum helped me clean up the ISP issue but this computer that I am working from (it's it's 38 of the day) still stops recieving packets after 38 min.
it's like a log file fills up and will not allow the system to recieve anymore.
other computers on the network work fine.

i assume i have nastyness on this machine alone.
any assitance would be great before i burn and purge.

I have two network adapters on this computer. One is a wireless connection and the other is a hardwired one but it is going through a power line adapter. I do not have both enabled at the same time but which ever one I have connected, I run along just fine and then all of a sudden the internet stops and tells me that the page is not available. I then have to disconnect the adapter and reconnected it to continue. I have made the ip's static compare to automatic. I have done so many things ( tips found searching ) that I can't remember them all. Nothing seems to help. This problem just started about a week or two before Christmas. My other computer which is right next to this one has no problems at all.

Ok, so after I have my PC on for a while (sometimes minutes, other times hours) my Internet "stops working". I try opening Firefox and IE and it just says "Connecting..." at the bottom. This only happens to me while I am playing an online game - I always get errors saying "Connection to the server has dropped" or what ever. I have Skype on my PC and when the Internet fails it does not log me out (I am not sure if I can still use the program though- I think that I have once while this error occured). I have opened the ports that the game websites tell me to open- doesnt work. Firewalls has been turned off- doesnt work.

Every time this happens I have to turn off my PC and reset my cable modem & router. I tested the cable connecting my PC to the router and it is fine. I have gone through a lot of different routers - some are better than others - but it keeps occuring. Not sure what it is that causes this or what any solution may be.

Anyone here got any ideas? Thanks!

Hi,

Ever since I upgraded my computer parts and formatted, my broadband internet has stopped working properly and i keep getting 'Page Cannot Be Displayed' errors and nothing else seems to work either, not even msn messenger etc.

Sometimes if I refresh the page 3 or 4 times, then the page appears but usually in a different format like HTML in the Times New Roman font if you know what i mean.

The strange thing is that I am still receiving the bytes from my ISP as I can see in the connection status and there must be a connection as sometimes if I refresh the page then the site appears, so I'm thinking this could be something going on at my end.

I have no firewall running and I had Service Pack 2 installed, then i uninstalled it and put Service Pack 1, but the same thing keeps happening.

To fix the problem, I have to restart my computer but then the same problem happens afterwards. Just to add as well, after I tried installing firewall software, the computer crashed when I tried to connect to my broadband. I then uninstalled the firewall and it kept happening, so i had to do a system restore.

Thanks for your help
Kev

Answer:Internet stops working even though bytes are getting through...

maybe a virus/spyware problem

Hi all,

This has been happening for days and I have no idea what to do.

I hope someone can help.

Basically what happens is after a few hours the browsers on my main PC stop working. AOL still works, my torrent program still works, and frostwire still works.

Firefox and IE do not.

If I reboot the system everything is fine again until a few hours, rinse, repeat.

I have comcast with a linksys WRT54g router. The main PC is a wired connection and is having the issue.

The issue does NOT occur with the other PC in the network, which is connected wirelessly.

What I can't figure out is all that doesn't work are my browsers and Yahoo Messenger.

For example, Firefox and IE don't work.

However my torrent program still works, AOL (minus browsing) still works, Limewire still works. Also the laptop I have connected to the network wirelessly works fine.

When the problem happens all that doesn't work are the browsers.

I am STUMPED.

Thanks everyone for any help.

Below is a log that Yahoo Messenger made for me when the problem was occuring.

If you need any other information from me please let me know. I am quite annoyed as you can imagine.

The laptop has a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller and it also says I have a Realtek RTL8723BE Wireless LAN Adapter, dont know which one it is honestly. I already downloaded drivers from Lenovo's website to see if that was the issue however it did not fix it. What I find weird is that sometimes it will work again for a while if i switch from Wifi to an Ethernet Cable or the other way, but then it will stop working again. Please help.

I have comcast and have a linksys wireless G 2.4ghz broadband router.Freqently while being on-line the computer will stop working and the screen will say the internet has stopped working.The computer then would restart itself.This problem continues everyday 2 or 3 times daily please help.
 

Answer:internet freqently stops working

Is this the only PC that disconnects - do other devices connected work OK - if so how are they connected to the router - wireless or wired

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the router and if you have a separate modem, the make and exact model of the modem.

Please make a note of the status of the lights on the modem and on the router when working normally - post that light status here.
Now when the internet disconnects make a note of the status of the lights for the modem and router here again. also note which have changed.

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG , Webroot etc

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.

It's not a huge issue, but it's definitely something I think should be addressed.

I have my wireless network set up with this notebook, and it works great.

Only problem, is that after about 3-4 hours, the wireless seems to just stop working.

It will detect all the connections, and their signal strength, but it will give me the Limited or No Access message, and it takes about 5 minutes to connect. No webpages will load once this happens.

A simple reboot fixes the problem, but it happens again as soon as the 3-4 hours go by.

Has anyone else had this issue? I've already sent feedback on it, but I was just wondering if it was a Windows 7 issue, or if it's just my hardware specifically.

I have a brand new Dell pc, and it came with Windows 7 premium 64 bit. AMD Athlon II X 2 240 processor with 4.0 GB ram. My problem is that I use twitter and Face Book a lot with IE 8.0 and it will all of a sudden just crash on me. I get the warning that it has stopped and will try and save the tabs. I am frustrated with it. It doesn't matter anymore what I am doing, it will just crash. I check for solutions when it does it and there are none. My resolution chart looks like a who's who with all the red x's on it. yes I also have Firefox and it has never crashed on me. Other than not using the program, what am I to do. I have researched and have never found an answer. I have posted this on many forums and have never gotten a answer to the problem. It's not in the add-on's. I thought that it was some of the add-ons on twitter and I deleted all of them and it still does it. Should I reload IE 8.0 and see if that will fix the problem. This has been going on since Jan 31, after I got the computer.

This is the date that I have on it; Each one is the same for every day that it stops working.

And now my internet stops working randomly after 5 minutes or 15 minutes or 30 minutes. I am using Google Chrome and my OS is windows xp (maybe service pace 1 or 2) I dont know. Can anyone please help me in this? I am using Wi-Fi internet connection.

Answer:Internet Stops working after awhile???

Hello. This has to do with the type of router you are using. You should get a hold of a "VISTA Compatible" router and you should have no problems. It has something to do with the router. I had an issue with a "NetGear" router and I returned it because of the reviews it received.

Try purchasing a new/better router and see if it still occurs.

Ok, so I have this really annoying problem. My internet stops working after I'm using it for some time. Sometimes it works fine for 3 hours then stops. Sometimes just 20 minutes. I can't load any pages, sign on to messenger programs or anything. But if I restart my computer it will work just fine again. But doing this is EXTREMELY annoying. I believe it's something with my computer and not the actual connection because my roommates' connections are fine. The network connection says that it is still connected. I tried a repair, but that didn't work. Any ideas on what can be causing this? Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Hi there,
I've received a computer that is having internet problems. He's tried replacing his modem, his ethernet cables, and even his network card. I've taken the computer overnight to my house and it's had the same problem.

I can browse the internet perfectly, and fine, and on seemingly random occasions the internet stops working, I get 404 errors, and I can't get it to work until I reboot.

He is using Windows XP.

Answer:Internet stops working after awhile

Is this an onboard nic, or expansion nic? Have you updated the drivers for said nic.

When the networking goes down, can you ping the gateway? Can you ping www.majorgeeks.com

What about the IP, do you still have one via, ipconfig?

All this can be accomplished via: START, RUN, cmd (or command (9x)).

I keep getting a message that my internet explorer has stopped working and I have to click on close program. Then it says it is searching for a solution to the problem, can't find one, then says windows will advise me when there is a solution. Why is this and what is happening?

Answer:Internet Explorer stops working

The cause could be any one of a dozen things - malware, errors in Windows, hardware problem etc etc.Best thing to do is to download & install Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox and use them instead of IE.If IE won't work long enough to let you download anything, ask a friend to download Firefox for you and put it on a pen drive so you can install it on your PC.

Hello!

Story behind it all. You can skip it because i doubt it'll be useful but i decided to post it anyway.

Everything started when i tried installing Microsoft Office because i needed it for my college project. But every single time I tried it stopped in the middle of installation showing up something like: "Error was found during installation of the product Microsoft Office. Windows setup can't update one or more protected Windows files." [translation might not be exact but the point is still made]. So i started googling the problem, tried deleting rgstrtn.lck file and all other crap i could find on internet but nothing worked. On one forum i found a guy who had the same problem, he said he runned ComboFix and that helped. [Turned out it didn't work for me in the end btw]

So i downloaded and runned ComboFix without reading any manual whatsoever. That's when my problems started: Internet worked for about 10 minutes, after that time I couldn't load any site even though i was connected. So i restarted my connection and again it worked for couple of minutes. It was hella annoying but at least it worked. But recently times between, let's call it "timeouts", got even shorter (1-3 mins) so i went to ComboFix site (read there that it is not advised to use by not advanced users, oh well...) and runned it again doing everything by the manual this time, thinking: "Could it be any worse?". Turns out it can :D. Now i can'... Read more

Hello Bazzah I will be helping with your computer problems.From this point on, it is very important that you refrain from doing anything else to your computer other than what I have requested of you.I do not mind if you browse the web, do basic tasks, or even test to see if the problem(s) you are experiencing are still occurring with the computer while we are working together, but do not run any tools/fixes unless I or another helper from this thread has asked you to do so.Remember that you came here for help, so allow us to help you If something does not run, make a detailed note of what problems you encountered along the way (exact error messages are preferred), but continue onto the next steps until you reach the end of my post.Always do the steps they are listed in (left to right, top to bottom).I prefer that you complete all the steps while you are in Normal Mode. However, I understand that sometimes this is not possible.

Answer:Internet Explorer stops working

What I meant by Firefox is just to see if it does it on that too, which would prove whether or not your issue was to do with IE or something more general. It can be uninstalled afterwards. Whatever, we'll skip that for now.It's not easy to properly imagine what you are seeing but I wonder if you have some toolbar or other lurking (or its remnants). Download and do the "Search" using this:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...It will tell you if there is anything there. If you use the "Delete" it will remove all addon toolbars. To my mind they are a waste of space anyhow.Another thing you could try is running IE without addons, in case one of them is playing up - info here:http://www.thewindowsclub.com/run-i...If it is OK without them it's just a matter of finding out which one is the culprit.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Answer:HELP Internet stops working after 5 minutes

Hi, Disconnect from the Internet once you have these steps.

Start>Run, type in services.msc and in the list, find

Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (lsass) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\scvhost.exe Note the spelling, and the EXACT name of the service, there are legitimate ones that use lsass.exe....do not shut down the real ones, only scvhost.exe The real ones are named svchost.exe.

Rightclick and choose "Properties". On the "General" tab under "Service Status" click the "Stop" button to stop the service. Beside "Startup Type" in the dropdown menu select "Disabled". Click Apply then OK. Exit the Services utility.

Note: You may get an error here when trying to access the properties of the service. If you do get an error, just select the service and look there in the top left of the main service window and click "Stop" to stop the service. If that gives an error or it is already stopped, just skip this step and proceed with the rest.

Then, run Hijackthis again, and fix this item:

O23 - Service: Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (lsass) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\scvhost.exe

Set these settings so you can see hidden/system files:

Sometimes, while I'm just going on the internet, my internet will just randomly stop working. After fiddling around, I found out that if I disconnect and reconnect the internet cord (at least I think that's what it is), the internet will start working again. This happens a lot more often if I watch a video on Youtube (and Youtube only), and I've recently found out playing Fusion Fall creates the same effect. This is a major annoyance for me and I have no clue how to stop it. Does anyone have an idea what's the problem?

For me this is an OLD VERY frustrating problem!

The scenario is pretty simple, and many of you are probably familiar with it. Despite the fact you can find this exact problem plastered all over the internet in hundreds of forums, no one ever seems to have the "practical" solution.

IE6 (I remember it happening in IE5) will be surfing along and then without warning, it won't be able to connect to a page leaving that dreaded white error page. Try as I will, it will NOT connect to it until after what appears to be a random interval when the internet will suddenly start working again! The only other way to get the internet to work again is to reboot (a common complaint for this problem).

No, Its not my computer, its not my phone lines, its not my modem, its not my router, its not my provider... ... You see this has happened on no less than six different computers each using different modems and different internet services, with and without microsoft firewall, with and without ZoneAlarm (although I favor ZoneAlarm), using a variety of internet services on all levels, from Dialup to DSL and Etc.

I've seen it suggested that it may be due to a virus or some spyware, hijacker, etc... but I find it hard to believe when programs like AdaAware find NOTHING on the computer.

I've seen it suggested that the cache may need to be deleted from the browser. That makes sense to me, but it doesn't fix the problem either.

Im connected to my modem via a cable, and at first I thought the problem was with my computer, but I learned that this also happens to my brother, who is also connected to the modem. The weird thing is that it doesnt happen to both of us at the same time, so its like the internet is crashing. Is it safe to assume that the problem is with the modem?

First of all, I'm running XP Media Center Edition SP3 (though the problem was also present with SP2).

I am connected to the internet through a cable modem. Basically, I'll be surfing the internet and pages suddenly stop loading (i.e. they all end up timing out after trying to load for quite a while). After a couple of minutes, everything will start working normally again. This is the case in all browsers (Firefox, IE, Opera). My XBox live connection (connected to the same modem through router) does not seem to suffer from the same sudden internet disconnection.

I've basically tried all issues related to spyware and viruses (going through all of the suggested steps and posting logs on the spyware forum). I was given a clean bill of health, so the problem is not malware related.

I've also tried things like rebooting the router and repairing winsock.

Any suggestions or advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated!

What security programs are you running, antivirus, antispyware, firewall..? Do you have other computers on your LAN and do they stop working also? When it stops working contact your ISP and have them do a line test fo you. See if it is a wiring problem. When it stops working does the network activity icon in you task bar show activity? What about your task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del)? If it does you may have malware infecting your system.
