Internet disconnects and won't reconnect until restart

Question: Internet disconnects and won't reconnect until restart

I've been having this problem for only the last week or so where my internet will stop working until I restart my computer, even though it says I am connected and internet is available.

The problem is not with my modem or my router. The internet works fine on every other computer.
I've run multiple antivirus scans on multiple programs. Clean.
Drivers are up to date.

Sometimes it disconnects after five minutes, sometimes forty, sometimes hours.
I'm at a loss. Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Internet disconnects and won't reconnect until restart

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: Internet disconnects and won't reconnect until restart

My internet is randomly disconnecting (cable Connection or WiFi). When I try to reconnect it shows no available connections and I have to restart my laptop to be able to reconnect again. IVe already did a clean reinstall (back to factory settings, Windows 8) but it didnt solve the problem. It has nothing to do with my internet or router since the same problem occured When I was at my friends house.. I hope someone can help me fix this problem..

This Chromebook is quite possibly the most frustrating thing I've ever bought. Throwing aside the fact that the trackpad stopped working after a few days (which I assume is tied to a disconnection within the case), the internet continuously disconnects and, more frustratingly, won't reconnect without a restart. I notice it when I try to save a project or load a website. The bottom icon will show that wifi is not connected. I click the icon and reselect the network. The wifi icon will then change to show as connected but nothing will load. Interestingly, if I try to load a page (such as CNN.com), the status in the lower right-hand corner of the window suggests (to me) that it's loading some data (e.g. it will tell me it's loading... I don't know... cookies? I don't know anything about this stuff but it will show something along the lines of "loading cdn.[text].com/"). Anyway, it will eventually pause on the of the updates regardless of the website. When I open my network settings, it still shows as connected. It's only when I enter settings that it shows it's not connected and only after this point does my wifi icon go blank/zero bars (as opposed to showing an 'x'). No matter what I do, I cannot get connectivity without restarting and losing my work. Chromebook 14 (CB3-431)1-2 Months OldProblem exists on home and public networks.

How do I fix the following problem?

While using my computer, I have no idea what triggers it but every so often, the WiFi will seem to randomly disconnect. If I try to reconnect, it says it fails to connect. However, if I restart the computer, the WiFi will automatically reconnect. The problem is when it disconnects every 10 minutes while I'm trying to do something, and I keep having to constantly restart my laptop just to stay connected to the internet. When this happens, the laptop is plugged in, and the option for disabling a network adapter to save power is disabled, so that shouldn't be the issue either.

This doesn't seem to be a problem with my Network or with my service provider, because it doesn't occur on any other internet enabled devices. My Xbox One and iPhone SE are both connected to the exact same WiFi and never experience this problem.

Why would restarting allow me to reconnect to it when I can't connect normally within the network options?
Why does it seem to disconnect in such random intervals of time?
How can I make it so my WiFi no longer disconnects on its own, constantly requiring computer restarts?

I've dealt with this problem for months and have no idea what causes it or how to fix it. I even had to restart my computer in the middle of typing this post just to get back my internet connection. Please help! I don't know if it's a problem with my laptop, with the OS, or what. I do know that the problem has pe... Read more

I have a U310 running Windows 8.1 that has had issues since it was purchased 1.5 years ago. The SSD died shortly after purchase, and was replaced by Lenovo (but not programmed at all...they just threw a new SSD in and no formatting was done). This computer does not boot quickly, but I can live with that. The real issue is the WiFi connectivity. This unit recognizes my home network, but often will not connect. After turning WiFi on/off, or disconnecting and reconnecting, it often says that the network is connected but the signal is limited. Alternatively, it will say the computer is connected to the network with full bars, but the internet will not load and Chrome (and other browsers) do not recognize a connection. All other wireless devices in my home work perfectly and NEVER drop the connection. This Lenovo is the only unit experiencing any issues. I've re-installed the WiFi drivers, but no change in activity was noted. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I don't want to purchase a new computer, but this unit needs to be able to connect to WiFi reliably.

Title say's most of it, lately my internet has been dropping out quite often and although my modem always reconnects (mostly by the time I have walked out to reset it) my computer will not until rebooted. I have tried resetting local area connection, windows troubleshooting, resetting router to factory settings, updating firmware, updating drivers on every device, and when using ipconfig /release/renew I get-

"An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out"

I also get a weird audio glitch where my sound come out with jumps of static when my net drops. I've seen a few threads with roughly the same problems but under different circumstances and so far none of their fixes have helped, I have also turned off my firewall and uninstalled my anti virus but nothing seems to be working so far, my router is a d-link 526B and I am running windows 7 64-bit if that helps.
Thanks in advanced.

Answer:Computer won't reconnect Internet after drop out until restart

What type of service is this?

DSL or Cable?

The modem do you own it or rent it? If you rent it contact the ISP and tell them to send a hit to the modem. If they can't solve the issue then the modem would need to be replace. But fore for you do that let them check out the modem on their end. Before you do anything else.

Each modem as a reset button on the back or bottom of them. Also do not press this button unless the ISP Tech as told you to do so? If the ISP said the Modem and your service is working correctly then move on to your Router. If the Router is 1 year then you should do a power recycle or do a full backup of the configuration, then do a factory reset. Also see if they have the latest factory firmware update for it.

So do this...

1. Have the Modem check out by the ISP first
2. If Modem checks out okay then go to step 3
3. Do a power recycle on the Router
4. Backup Router configuration
5. Do a factory Reset
6. Do a Factory Firmware Update
7. Restore Router Configuration from a backup
8. Test the Router
9. Should Router not manage the DHCP correctly? Replace the Router.

Last step, only if you have tried all steps with the PC also.

Example:

1. On the PC remove the driver (DO NOT DELETE IT) for the NIC (network interface card)
2. Reboot the PC
3. Let Windows Find the NIC and install the driver again
4. If wired NIC it will configure itself or if Wireless you need to make sure that the SSID, Passcode (Password) are set right.

Also if you have ... Read more

I have an Ideapad Y400 notebook with Windows 7 connecting to the network with a D-Link DIR-601 router and occasionally when I come back to my laptop the network connection is lost. I try re-connecting, forgetting the network and reconnecting, but nothing works unless I reset the router. Once I've reset the router everything works fine again. Sometimes it works for multiple days and sometimes for only a few hours. All my drivers are up to date and I always keep Windows Updates installed. Has anyone else experienced this issue before and had it resolved.

My mother's computer periodically loses internet connectivity. This happens regardless of the browser (IE or Firefox). She must restart her computer to get access again. This happens regardless of her internet connection. She uses verizon at her home and accesses through my wireless router when visiting. This also happens if she is on a public access network such as a hospital.

Her OS is Windows Vista.

It is not a problem with high memory usage. There are no other processes or applications running when this happens.

Any ideas how to fix it?

I'm pretty good at following instructions but don't know where to start...

Can someone please advise on possible cause? If the pc has been left idling over several hours when I try to go on to the internet or use outlook express, there is no internet connection. Wireless laptops still work ok via Belkin Router and the only way I can connect again is to restart the pc. Then it works fine. Does anyone have any ideas please?

Answer:Internet disconnects - have to restart pc

Are you also running a software firewall on the PC? My guess would be your settings on that.

I've been having this problem for the past 3-4 weeks now. I had an old Zyxel router that my broadband provider had given me for free and thought the problem might have been with it. Today I got a new router, an ASUS DSL-N55U and the problem persists.

My internet connection will disconnect (both cable and wireless for all devices) for seemingly no reason. Upon restarting the router, it will connect and be fine for a while until it happens again. Sometimes it stays online a few hours, other times a few minutes. It doesn't seem to be a specific application that disconnects it, as it disconnects when using many different applications and devices. (Although the old router did disconnect when refreshing game server lists, as it flooded the router. The new router doesn't seem to have this problem)

It's been bugging me like crazy, any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!
 

Answer:Internet Disconnects but Reconnects on Restart

Did your Isp .Run a line check for you. I had this problem about a year ago. Turned out it was my line coming in the house. another thing you can try is uninstalling you av protection. Long enough to see if this makes a differance. I have seen AV software cause problems like this also. That is about all I can think of. I am sure someone else here will be able to assist you to.

Guys, I'm about to throw a brick at my PC. Honestly, if this problem is unsolvable I invite you all to my house to smash this thing up because it is honestly the most annoying problem I have ever had that seems to be without a solution.

I know that people seem to be asking this question literally 5 times a day but I haven't been able to have this fixed, and this has been happening for years and it has got to stop. I need specific answers and I haven't able to find any even with massive Google searches and spending hours upon hours looking for solutions.

So far I have found 0.

If you guys solve this or if this ever gets solved I will congratulate you all and nominate you for a noble prize.

================================================================

The Problem: My internet keeps cutting out frequently and randomly and seems to cut out upon certain actions or opening certain programs. The only solution for this is to restart my computer.

- The iTunes web-store is a 100% guarantee that the internet cuts out instantly.
- YouTube is a 50% chance that after 5 minutes it will cut out.
- 25% in general the internet cuts out after 5 minutes when opening a certain page.

No, the problem is not related:

- To my actual internet connection. Works 100% of the time on other computers.
- To my Router. Works flawlessly on other computers.
- To my Modem. Works flawlessly again.

My router is often getting disconnected from the internet and it cannot connect again before I reboot it. It is an Encore ENTR-104-2 router and I set it to reconnect automatically - however when disconnected it does connect automatically (and neither manually if I try) and I have to reboot it to be able to connect again. I bought this router a few months ago and did not have any problems until the past few weeks, when it has started getting disconnected every 3-5 days. I have tried downloading a new firmware from the Encore site, but did not find any for my exact model, and the nearest one I found was not accepted by my router.

I contacted my ISP who stated there is no problem at all with my connection.

A log of my router is reproduced below. It was taken when I found my router disconnected, and I even tried to reconnect manually, but to no avail. Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hello everyone,

For about a month now, my pc randomly disconnects from the wi-fi network (my home network) I was connected to, mostly (actually almost exclusively) when I am on Youtube watching videos. Sometimes it happens after 10 min, sometimes after 2h. I can't reconnect to any available wi-fi network in range, and can only regain connection and internet after restarting my pc. Other devices connected to the network don't have any problems.

Network adapter: Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter
Drivers are up-to-date.
No AVG installed.
Restarting the network adapter doesn't help.
Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, Spybot, AdwCleaner all return clean scans.

Can anyone please help me?
All suggestions are welcome!

Thanks in advance!

Answer:PC randomly disconnects (when on Youtube), can't reconnect

Open up a Command Window and enter the following command: netsh wlan show all

That will give you everything you need to know. Usually a poor connection can be due to congestion on that channel, weak radio in the Access Point, or too far away and your laptop keeps wanting to find a better connection.

Hi, I registered here because I'm having a problem with VPN on Windows.

I started using a private VPN for video gaming in general since last month, but I've started running into a problem I cannot fix... my PC tends to disconnect from the VPN after a while (6~12 hours of use?) and I can't reconnect to any VPNs until I reboot my PC.

However.. my normal internet connection works fine... at least it seems to be OK.

When I try to reconnect to the VPN after I get dropped, I'm welcomed by this error:

I'm on Windows 7 64bit and I use the default windows VPN client... idk what's it called, it's what you setup in the network and sharing center.

I've tried the following things:
*restart network adapter
*diagnose the issue with windows 7 network diagnostics
*/flush DNS cache
*/release and /renew lease
*reset internet connection
*using a neighbor's internet connection and I'm still unable to connect to any VPN until PC reboot.

-- diagnosing the wireless adapter after the disconnect from VPN happens leads to this...

First, I want to say that I don't think there was ever a malware problem on this machine, a Lenovo R500.
 
It worked ok for a long time, but a year or so ago it started disconnecting from the wireless network.
It would say connected, and "acquiring network address" but it never completed.
 
I did a network tcp/ip reset on it, that didn't change anything. I got another identical wifi /bluetooth card and changed it, no difference.
 
A few days ago it was working, then stopped with the "acquiring network address", and as a test I gave it a static IP on the local network and it connected. It worked until I shut down.
 
Today, I booted up, same static IP configured, and it worked OK for about an hour.  Then it stopped working and said "acquiring network address" even though it had a static number configured. I checked!  Very odd.
 
So something is amiss here. More than meets the eye.
 
I started reading threads, including the one I referenced above. I compared some of the regedits that were recommended then, but nothing really stood out.
 
I did notice that even though the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service is marked as started and automatic, the start/stop buttons are grayed. I could not determine for sure that it's running or not, but I admit I don't know that it needs to be running.

I have recently subscribed to a local cable ISP and have a Linksys wireless router broadcasting throughout my house. About every half hour, my wireless internet icon in the task bar flashes that it is connected to my home connnection at full signal, and then just after, disconnects.

I am running a toshiba laptop with windows XP pro SP3
In Wireless Network Connection Properties, I have my home internet connect configured at the top of the list in wireless networks, the box that says "use windows to automatically configure..." is checked. Under my connection's properties, it is set to connect even if it's not broadcasting, and to connect when it is in range.

Even when it disconnects, you can see that it still shows up in my wireless networks list at full signal, but it does not automatically connect.

Answer:dialup disconnects, cannot reconnect without modem reinstall

A PCI modem is 100% (or near enough to 100%) controlled by the CPU in real time.

That means it is 100% reliant on every other piece of sofware and hardware installed to "play nicely" with it or all hell breaks loose.

It is likely a driver bug, but also likely that there may be little you can do about it. WHile the makers try and assure compatability they cannot possibly know of every environment in which the modem will be required to work.

Upgrading drivers (where they exist) is always a good starting point, but given the ultra low cost of these modems, replacing it is another alternative.

I can assure you from experience, the old PCI modems make a satisfying "clunk" when you chuck them in the bin.

When I had my PCs on dial-up, I relied on an external RS232 serial connected modem, which contains its own CPU and has no reliance on the PC's CPU. Never another proble.

USB modems are usually PCI modems "in drag" so are also best avoided.

I seem to be having some issues with my remote desktop connection. Im connecting from my work (Win XP Pro) to my home laptop(winxp Pro). My home laptop is behind a firewall(port 3389 open), and then behind a router (incoming connections to my routers ip address are port forwarded to 3389, which should be my remote desktop).

"This computer cant connect to the remote computer.

Try connecting again. If the problem continues, contact the owner of the remote computer or your network administrator."

Hi there,

I need help!

The wireless internet access of my laptop disconnects after every few hours of use, and does not reconnect for a good hour or so. During the 1 hour it constantly connects to the router, fails, breaks the connection, and tries over and over again. After an hour or so it just succeeds and internet connection is back and works fine again for some hours.

- wifi signal is excellent (full bars, sitting right next to the router does not make a difference)
- other devices have no trouble connecting to the router (smartphone, other laptop, etc, and they do not experience such hiccups)
- restarting the router does not help
- restarting the laptop also does not help
- The router actually registers my laptop connecting every minute, and then it disappears for the list of connected devices.
- I cannot ping the router (or anything else) from my laptop during this time.
- device manager says drivers are up to date

I am guessing its either my wifi card dieing, or I have some odd signal interference. Or maybe something else. Any ideas?

(asus laptop, win7, intel centrino wireless n-100 card, bt broadband service, bt home hub 5 router)

Answer:Wifi disconnects and fails to reconnect after prolonged use

Open Device Management and go into wifi properties, power management and uncheck turning it off etc.

Also download Linux Mint MATE and make bootable DVD/USB. Boot with it (no need to install) and see if it will work alright.

Hey everyone,

I'm a college kid who has been having major issues with my laptop, I'm desperate for some help.

The problems:
My Wifi cuts out at random, and after that my laptop won't reconnect- or connect to any wifi- until I either close the lid, wait for the green light to go off, then reopen, or I restart. This always temporarily fixes the problem. (This actually happened when I first tried to submit this post, so I have to retype the whole thing . This happens within anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours from when I reconnect to wifi, and it seems to be somewhat correlated to me opening new tabs (or submitting a new post ). I don't use my laptop for anything other than casual browsing and school work, so I don't have any weird programs that might cause this. No single event started this, but it's been happening for months. I'd really appreciate any help.

Good afternoon all,
I'm having the following problem with some PCs on a domain at work (and the "official" admin is a bit puzzled too, let alone me, the "unofficial" local admin :-) ).
The scenario: there are a few PCs (with either Windows 7 Pro or XP Pro) with networked drives which point to a Windows 7 Pro PC acting as a server.
We can get these networked drives working nicely, then without warning, the "client" machine drops it's connection, and we can't reconnect the network drive without rebooting the "server". (A message comes up something like "the network drive is already in use".)
The admin is puzzled because Windows 7 Pro can support 20 concurrent network connections (or so we believe) and when we run "netstat" on the "server" there aren't anything like 20 connections; 12 maybe, but not 20.
Has anyone got any ideas I can try?
Thanks in advance,
Roger V.

Windows eight is annoying enough without this problem but this is the last straw, tried to ring technical support got through to a terrible microsoft employee who tried to connect me to the technical department which had closed two hours before hand . You think he would of known this before he tried to connect me right ?

Anyways i need help, my computer constantly loses connection to the internet even though i have full wireless signal and it give me limited access(meaning i can do nothing), now for all you brainiacs who will comment go into power settings and un tick box that says let device manager turn off wireless to save battery, i already tried this fix to no avail, so is there any decent people out there with some answer?

Hello. My computer's internet disconnects when I put it to sleep, as if I hit the disconnect button. When I restart it, I have to manually reconnect to my network, and it takes quite a long time. It says "this is taking longer than usual." Before this happened, I had an issue where the internet would disconnect randomly every 20 or so minutes due to a gateway issue. I ran the troubleshooter and it fixed it every time, but it got frustrating. I finally installed some drivers, and the gateway issue was fixed, but this issue presented itself. Thanks in advance.

1. This is a wireless connection issue.

2. AT&T is my ISP.

3. I think I'm using DSL, it's through the phone box.

4. My router is a Netgear router.

Answer:Network disconnects when computer sleeps & wont reconnect

Hi and Welcome to Seven Forums,

Thank you for all the detail info that you've provided, they are all quite helpful. Your Xirrus snip and ipconfig/all output looks good.
You might want to disable the Power Mode setting of your Wi-Fi adapter in Device Manager see if that helps, here's an image.

Can you also try a wired connection if possible and see if you can replicate the issue?

When the phones work, they work great, but after 5-15 mins, the phones lose connectivity to the PBX servers and stay in 'not registered' state. The phones are still on the network and I can get to them by their IP address, but they do not show up on my DHCP lease list, ever. Sometimes, the phones will reconnect by themselves, but will disconnect again in 5-15 mins.

With the PC still on and connected to the network, a hard reboot of the phones will get them working again, for that 5-15 minutes. If the phones are hardwired to the router, they work pretty flawlessly.

Thanks in advanced!

Hey folks, I got a brand new Y580 with windows 8 a week ago ang I keep having problems with my wireless connection. Basically, when I'm in front of my computer and I use internet everything is fine. But when I leave the computer alone for a bit (maybe 2hrs), the WIFI disconnects. If I try to reconnect, it cannot. But if I put the "airplane mode" on and off (a.k.a. resetting the adapter), it works fine again. I'm really annoyed because I typically access my computer from work using TeamViewer and everyday, by the time I get to work, the WIFI is lost. Then when I come back home, I see that the computer is simply not connected. It is not a problem with my internet since my EEE PC keeps the connection without any issues and I can remotely connect to it anytime. What I've done: - installed latest centrino drivers- tried latest intel PROSET drivers- tried Lenovo PROSET drivers- tried without the intel PROSET drivers Also my wifi connection is set up to:- always connect/reconnect to my house internet- wifi adapter cannot be turned off to save energy And my computer never goes to sleep. Any ideas? Thanks!

Answer:Y580 - Wifi disconnects after a few hours... and doesn't reconnect.

I have a very disturbing problem with my wireless card. After a random period of time (differing from a few minutes to a few days), wifi card disconnects from network and shows yellow star tray icon. When this happens, the icon doesn't respond in any way. It also won't automatically reconnect, no matter how long you wait. Left or right clicks on the tray icon don't work. The only way to get it to respond and connect again is to disable and re-enable the device manually by visiting Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections. As soon as I hit Disable, the popups of previous clicks suddenly appear all at once. I have tried a lot of possible problems. - Disabling all other network adapters - Changing all possible configurations (2.4GHz <> 5GHz, 20Hz <> 40Hz, 802.11n only <> bgn mixed, all of them) - All possible power settings are set to maximum performance,  in both windows & lenovo power settings - Disabling Microsoft Virtual Miniports and even the hosted network service Please help or fix the driver if it's responsible. It's a business laptop. I have automatied processes requiring network. ThinkPad W541Card: Intel Wireless 7260ACDriver version: 18.11.0.8 (latest from Lenovo)OS: Windows 7 x64 (up to date) The notebook is in a fresh state, no registry hacks applied whatsoever and no software is installed that could possibly do something with wifi drivers.

Answer:Intel Wireless 7260AC disconnects frequently and doesn't reconnect (gets stuck)

> All possible power settings are set to maximum performance,  in both windows & lenovo power settingsI took my first Thinkpad back over a similar problem. The tech claimed it was due to a power-saving Wifi "feature" which he showed me settings for. I had already toggled off other wifi power saving options, but apparently such settings exist in multiple places. IIRC one setting was burried in Lenovo PowerManager under Power Agenda -> Battery StretchAnother one is in Lenovo Access Connections under Tools --> Global Settings --> Allow wireless radios to be turned offThere was another setting elsewhere, but darned if I can recall where. I wasn't going to risk another long trip and insisted on new hardware.

I have 2 computers, desktop and laptop. Desktop Drives are mapped to the laptop and visa versa. When I restart the desktop it automatically reconnects the laptop drive(if it is on). When I restart the laptop I have to go to Computer, the drives are shown but I have to connect with my password. I have checked the block to remember my credentials.

I think it must be something simple but can't come up with anything, Any help is appreciated.

Answer:Mapped drives won't reconnect on restart

Windows Live Essentials can cause this problem.

Uninstalling the "Windows Live ID Login Assistant" has fixed this issue in the past.

You can find it in your programs list in the control panel.

I've searched everywhere for a solution to this and found nothing remotely close to what my problem.

I have a laptop (ASUS UL50VT) and i normally have it on my desk connected to a really basic wired mouse (logitech m100). However sometimes I like to move the laptop around for a few minutes and put it back on my desk so I would have to disconnect the mouse and when I reconnect it nothing happens. The computer does not many any noise or show any notification or change in any way in device manager. The laptop light does turn on however. I tried going to device manager and using "Scan for hardware changes" and it just stays stuck at "Scanning for plug and play compliant hardware" forever. Restarting my laptop always fixes the problem but it gets really annoying; there must be something wrong here.

Hello all,

My network connection may need some troubleshooting. Here is what I did, tried to install latest drivers (but newer drivers were already installed). Then I did a fresh repair install with the same problem.

What is going on is this: Internet connection (wifi) requires a login through Cisco's client portal, it is a guest account.

Many times the internet connection does not connect and the close button appears with my home wifi connection not displaying. Also the speeds are not as what they should be at times.

Do I have a virus or something or is this a normal problem?

Answer:Toshiba Laptop - Internet disconnects, frequent disconnects

Welcome to the Tenforums @jinzu

I assume this started recently. If not the information below may fix but we should check interference from other networks. So assuming this started recently.

You may want to disable IPv6. This link was provided by @Fafhrd

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...nts-in-windows

If that does not resolve please go to Toshiba's web site and download their driver for your wireless card. Its older. Install. Test. If this provides stability we have to shut off Windows updating drivers.

Hey all,

Hope I can get some help with a problem that has been bugging me since I installed W10.

This problem appears to be random and happens a couple of time a month. It is really annoying. What happens is, the WiFi appears to stop working. It can't find any available networks and won't reconnect no matter what I do. I have even tried closing/restarting explorer but that does nothing. If I try to shut-down or restart my computer, it just hangs on the shut-down/restart screen. I have to hold down the power button to get my computer to shut-down. The weird thing is, after a restart, it works fine ...for a few weeks. It just seems very strange.

I use a WiFi dongle. I have a couple of them so I tried each one - they all eventually give me the same result . I have a HP if that helps. I notice that my father in law's rig also does this occasionally. He also has a HP, albeit a different model.

For over a month now, at random points throughout the day my internet goes from working great to "Unidentified network: Local Only". I have tried MANY things and searched many forums to find the fix to this, and nothing stops it from disconnecting time and time again. To get the connection back, I have to restart the laptop. Nothing else works, I've tried resetting and renewing the IP address, disabling QoS and Ipv6, using a different modem, trying to connect through ethernet as well as wi-fi, resetting winsock dhcp, and it all ends up the same. Note that it is not my router, as my PS3 has no such problem, I can play online with it all day. I find it hard to believe that it would be my network card, as both ethernet and wi-fi react the same, I re-installed vista around 2 months ago, and it worked fine for a good while. I've tried restoring to previous dates, which changes nothing, and could try another full restore though I don't know what I could do differently to prevent this, as I don't think I've accumulated any viruses.
I'm running Windows Vista 32 bit edition on a Dell Vostro. ANY help with this is much appreciated, as I usually have no problems solving network issues, but this has me stumped.

So I have continually had an issue with the network connection dropping. Only way to get it back is to restart. Starting with the first preview build I installed this was an issue. I have tried disabling IPV6. I have disabled power management in the NIC and the problem just continues. If i try to disable the network connection after this has happened the computer locks up. If I uninstall the network card once this has happened it locks up as well. I can do both fine before this happens. I have performed the following commands ipconfig /flushdns, ipconfig /registerdns, ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew, NETSH winsock reset catalog, NETSH int ipv4 reset reset.log, and NETSH int ipv6 reset reset.log. Nothing out of the ordinary in the event viewer with the exception of "Name resolution for the name fg.ds.download.windowsupdate.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded". In order to use the system I have to disable any applications that use the network such as dropbox or onedrive or downloading of files in the browser. Im tired of being told its your network card. Its not. If I boot into windows 7 on the same PC I can use the connection without issues. I have now tried a second network card and it does the same thing. Please someone help.

I use an X61 running XP SP2. When I am at my desk, I connect the laptop to my 24" monitor via VGA cable.   Via Ctrl+F7, I can modify my display settings and receive options such as:- Notebook only- Same display- Extended display All of these work fine.  However, just recently, after I disconnect (either using Ctrl+F7 or simply unplugging the VGA connector - both end up with the same result) and later try to re-connect, when I press Ctrl+F7, no menu option appears. When I go to Control Panel | Display, I can 'see' the monitor is connected and I can 'extend' display to the desktop monitor BUT cannot set-up 'same display' from here. The only option that works is to restart the system and then Ctrl+F7 works fine again. I do not believe that I have made any changes to the system that would warrant this change (however, there may have been a recent automatic MS XP update that was loaded). Does anyone have any suggestions on how to handle this?  Do I need to update anything related to the system?

I lost the Status Bar on Firefox so thought I'd uninstall, using Revo Uninstaller, which I did, but now of course I dont have internet connection to reinstall Firefox and I cant work out how to get it all up and running again.

Answer:how do I reconnect to the internet after unin

Revo must have gone a little too far, eh? It's not always wise to use third party uninstallers when there is a perfectly good one already provided by the OS (it uses the uninstaller installed by the program, in this case Firefox).Try this:Use a manual method to reset TCP/IP"Doin' right ain't got no end." Cap'n Red Legs[added]The status bar was removed from Firefox 4 and above, it's now called add on bar and can be enabled by right clicking and putting a check mark beside it.

How to reconnect to the internet?My Dell Studio laptop crashed after using system restore and now I can only work offline, it refuses to connect to any server provider so I can use the internet. I have spent many hours struggling with this and I can't fix it myself. I have Windows 8.1 on it, it is a handmedown and I don't have a recovery disk. I think there is a corrupted file after using system restore. Please make your answer simple and clear as I am elderly and not a techie. From hopeful33.

Answer:How to reconnect to internet after using S/Restore?

"it refuses to connect to any server provider"You can't just connect to any service provider that takes your fancy, you can only connect to the service provider you've signed up to with a subscription.Try installing the network drivers for your model from the Dell website that serves your region or country.

Hello

I have formatted my computer and re-installed everything as it was before I formatted it. I have updated my chipset, ethernet driver, etc (I use DFI board with nForce4 chipset and the driver comes as an package). And, the ethernet driver must be updated because it was causing problems at bootup. Now, my internet connection disconnects about every 15min and reconnects by itself. It is behind a router and there are three computers connected to the router, and the other two computers do not have this problem. How should I go about figuring out what is wrong?

Thank you very much.
 

Answer:Internet Auto Disconnect and Reconnect

In General, you can debug the Network Setting of the computer following these steps.

Step One. Check the Network parameters in the Computer's Device Manager. Make sure that the drivers are installed correctly; there is No IRQ conflict, and No Ghost installation. http://www.ezlan.net/faq#ghost

Step Two Verify Basic network setting in the OS: http://www.ezlan.net/Installing#verify
If the above two Steps indicates that every thing looks good but functionally it does not work.

Step Three. Check (and repair if necessary) the Socket Layers, Winsock, and or refresh the TCP/IP Stack. http://www.ezlan.net/clean#refreshnet

If need to Reinstall; Log to this page it have a lot of links to instructions for Windows Network Installation - http://www.ezlan.net/Installing.html

I sometimes need to shedule a downlaod after midnight. I can schedule for download app to do that, but sometimes my Internet connection has been dropped in the meantime.

How can I schedule a connect or, alternatively, set to auotmatically reconnect of dropped?

It is a PPPoE connection.

Edit: I found the answer for reconnect, but I would still like to know if it is possible to schedule a connect.

Answer:Schedule Internet Connection or Reconnect

Doesn't your PC automatically dial a connection if it needs one? If not you can configure it to do so. (something like "automatically dial this connection" in your connection details)

Then, the scheduled download itself would probably trigger the connection to be established and be OK with that. If you still would like to establish the internet connection before the download is attempted, then you can schedule anything else, like a "ping www.hema.nl" to take place which will trigger your internet connection to establish.

Let us know how you manage ^^

Hi,Tech Support Guys : I Have a Gateway Computer. (Windows Vista Home Premium.(2007) SP2.)
I recently Uninstalled Norton 360 Antivirus, (it had expired 2 yrs ago). using the Control Panel . As soon as I uninstalled it, the internet connectivity was lost. I read that I need to uninstall Norton 360 using the Norton Uninstall Tool which I can download from the internet using another computer I have (Gateway Windows XP) which only downloads computer files onto CDs. I have tried this already but,the Windows Vista computer with no internet connectivity cannot read these CDs. It reads music CDs, though.
I also tried solving the problem using the Command Prompt, logging in as Administrator and I guess I did it wrong. PLEASE HELP. This appears to be a simple problem but,not knowing how to solve it is very frustrating. Thanks Much...
 

Answer:How to Reconnect Internet after Norton 360 removal

Hi, try to download the Norton uninstaller to a flash drive then connect this to your computer,
and run it.

You may also need to reset your winsock to do this go to start search and type cmd, right click on the returned cmd.exe and select "run as administrator" at the command prompt copy paste the following:-

netsh winsock reset (press enter) it is necessary to restart your computer.

Since doing a clean install of Windows 7 my internet keeps timing out. The icon in the task bar shows that it's normal, but I'll be online and after a couple minutes the internet just stops. When I click on the icon it says "connected" and "internet access."

I have tried on both a Netgear and Apple router, so it's not a router issue. I reset the modem and routers a dozen times. I called my ISP and they said everything looks normal. My Droid phone works fine and so does a Macbook in the house.

I have rolled back my Atheros5007 wireless card driver, which did nothing. And then tried upgrading the latest version, which did nothing. Uninstalled the driver then reinstalled, still with no luck.

This is blowing my mind. I was running Windows 7 fine all year and did the clean install as something I do every year to keep my computer running well. Bad move!

I ran the network diagnostic utility and it said it fixed something, although I'm not sure what. Either way, it didn't actually fix the problem.

Not to mention, I've had the blue screen of death a couple times now. Once when I was connecting my laptop (HP G60t-200) to a Tv, and the other just happened out of nowhere.

Answer:cant reconnect to internet after Win7 update

Did the system come with W7, or was this an upgrade? If an upgrade, update your drivers.

Hey guys, first time poster here.

I've been having problems with my internet ever since I came back for the holidays, especially in the evening. I'll connect to our family's router and the internet will work anywhere between half a minute to over an hour, then it'll stop working. It starts working again fine when I disconnect from the network and reconnect, but it'll go down again soon.

I've done virus and malware scans, which haven't fixed the problem.

Just in case this information's any use, I have to have the charger plugged in at all times because it won't charge. The battery has been empty for about 3 months now so as soon as the cable comes out, my laptop dies. It's something I'll get round to sorting but right now I don't have the money to fork out for a new motherboard. I doubt it has anything to do with this since I have no trouble at my term-time address, but other computers work fine on this network so I figured I'd mention it.

Answer:Internet works for a bit before needing to reconnect

can we see the following when its working OK and then repeat ALL the tests when it disconnects

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 results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here

Hi, I'm using a HP Envy dv6-7398ca with Windows 8.1. I've had some spotty internet issues since June but ever since I switched to Comcast in July my internet has been almost unusable on my laptop. No one else has this problem in the household but me, so it's definitely my laptop.

Online games like World of Warcraft are just impossible. I can log in and it'll take a god awful amount of time to load, and then the game just lags out.

The entire service/process for the internet on my system will sometimes become un-responsive for some reason. It requires a restart in order to remedy it. I'm using a wireless net-gear wnd4100 adapter. So what will prompt me reconnecting is I'll be in a Skype call then try to open a browser which will say unable to connect, so I open the internet thing in the taskbar notification area and disconnect and reconnect very quickly which in most cases solves the issue for my web browser without dropping my call. However I'd say one in ten tries ends up with the internet thing in the notification area becoming a small computer with a red 'x' and i'm unable to open network and sharing window without it locking up at which point I have to task list end it. Is this a known issue with an optional update to fix it or what? I run Avast and Malware Bytes Free Editions as well as use CCleaner to get rid of junk files and registry errors. I use Chrome with only secure settings and only venture to trusted sites. Both scans turn up with no malware/viruses so I'm wondering if it's just an issue with the networking drivers or some kind of bug. My wireless adapter's drivers are up to date straight from the manufacturer's support site.

Ideas?

Hi, new guy here.

Here's what happens, whenever I start up my computer and connect to the internet I always have about half an hour before a little yellow rectangle pops up over my wifi signal bars. When I disconnect the yellow triangle is replaced by a red x and I am unable to reconnect. I don't think it's a problem with the router because my roommate can connect to the internet fine while this is happening. I can get back online if I restart my computer but it just goes away again after half an hour. I can't disable and re-enable the network adapter or its driver because that just freezes the computer. I've also tried updating my network adapter drivers but my computer just tells me the drivers are up to date. I've had this problem for the past month.

Answer:Keep getting disconnected from the internet, unable to reconnect

I would completely uninstall any and all network devices and then reboot and hopefully windows will reinstall them and the correct drivers for them and hopefully that will resolve the issue for ya. If it does not; post back here and we can go from there.

I have a year old sony vaio. For the past few weeks, the internet slows down to the point of being useless. I have a verizon internal card, and thought maybe it was because I moved and it was getting poor reception. I signed up for cox wi fi. It is still happening. If I disconnect and reconnect, it is back up and running. Last week, I had the redirect virus and had a computer technician remotely remove it and some other things that were found. I have stopzilla and have used malbites malware. I was told last week that my computer is clean. They pinged it and got a good response. They said it must be something with COX.

So I'll click the wifi symbol at the bottom right hand corner of the screen to reconnect... but even though it will say that there are connections when I hover over the icon, the list of possible connections will be blank.

This topic was posted in Dec without a fix. I have 2 Toshiba Satellite laptops with a Realtek wireless adapter running Windows 7 64 bit. Just started having the problem about a month ago with both laptops. The adapter is disable when lid is closed. I want the computer to go to Sleep when not in use, but the adapter will not reconnect when the lid is raised and I log back in. I must manually disable and then enable the adapter (in Admin mode) to re-connect to the wireless network or reboot the computer. The computer is plugged into the power adapter. Power options are set to maximum performance. I checked all the power settings, adapter properties to automatically connect, and WLAN is the service running in automatic mode. Microsoft Answers has no answer to the problem either. Thanks for any help or advice.

Answer:Wireless internet won't reconnect when laptop lid opened

Did you go to the device manager, find your wifi card, and make sure to deselect the option to turn off to conserve power? Also, if it just started happening to both computers a month ago, I'd look for a common install/removal/update that was done to both of them.

Can I do something to speed up the reconnection?

I don't know where the delay is coming from. My NIC is plugged directly into my Comcast cable modem -- no other routers or the like involved. The NIC on the machine claims to be an "Intel Ethernet Connection (2) 1219-V", running driver version 12.13.17.4, which is claimed to be the current version. The "Power Management" tab in Device Manager for the NIC lists three power-saver options, all of which are enabled (that is, the boxes are checked):

Respond to ARP requests without waking system
Respond to NS requests without waking system
Energy Efficient Ethernet

(I am attaching a PNG of the Power Management tab.) These options suggest that the NIC should be able to keep the Internet connection alive, even during sleep. So I don't know why I am experiencing a delay in re-establishing the connection.

Any ideas?
Lyle

Answer:slow Internet reconnect after Win10 wakes from sleep

I have tried turning off the "Energy Efficient Ethernet" option, and that seems to have reduced the length of the delay in re-establishing Internet connectivity after wake-up from sleep. Where the delay used to be 15 to 40 seconds, it is now 5 to 10,

Why do I need to reconnect to the internet every single time I leave my PC for - like- 5 minutes? This has only begun to happen since downloading Windows 10. Not only that, but it requires me turning off my wireless router and turning it back on again.
Also - nearly everything on my PC is now running much more slowly than it was prior to downloading Windows 10.
I'm sure techies out there will say "Oh, you need a different router", or "Oh, you can fix that by some convoluted Network management routine"... But my point is I shouldn't need to! How can these so-called "upgrades" (which are effectively forced upon us) change the way our devices work without warning us?
If I can't download an upgrade and have ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING work EXACTLY the way it did before the upgrade, Bill Gates owes me at least $1 million.
PS: The captcha I just had to answer asked me to select all images with a river - but two of them were clearly LAKES!! Aaaggghhhh!!!!

Are all apps updated? Are there any pending updates? Perhaps OS updates or driver updates. For slow working of the pc, maybe there are a number of apps that are running in the background that shouldn't be running?

Hi all

I have a few computers that connect via rasdial to a bridged modem. They are dropping off randomly and frequently enough that its a pain to have to reset them manually everytime.

Does anyone know how I could write a script or something that would check for internet connectivity and if there is none then it would re dial the pppoe connection?

Thanks

Wolfsta

Answer:Check Internet connectivity automatically via script and reconnect

If anyone is curious. This is how I solved the issue.

Friend of mine wrote a basic Powershell script:

$site = "Kelly-PC"
$wait = 60
$nl = [Environment]::NewLine

While ($TRUE)
{
if(!(Test-Connection -computer $site -count 1 -quiet))
{
Write-Host -ForegroundColor Red -NoNewline "Connection Down...$nl"
rasdial attdsl [email protected] password
}
else
{
Write-Host -ForegroundColor Green -NoNewline "Connection Up...$nl"
Start-Sleep -Seconds $wait
}
}

$site is the name of the computer
$wait is the time in seconds before next test
and the "rasdial attdsl [email protected] password" line dials my pppoe connection called attdsl with the specified user and password when no connection is available.

Hello. Sorry to barge in and ask for help without actually contributing to the community. I've got a trojan/dropper calling itself taskhost.exe, winrar.exe, and photoshop.exe. It has added itself to the startup--the photoshop one only stays open for a second right when windows loads up. When I originally wrote this last night I was a little frazzled from trying to get rid of the stupid thing all day, so I'm rewriting it now to include more details and less commentary.  
 
Some details about my computer are as follows:
Dell Latitude E6410
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Intel Core i5 CPU M 5600 @2.67 GHz
2GB Ram, 150GB HD
 
 
Taskhost.exe in C:\ProgramData
 
Taskhost.exe in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\drivers
 
Winrar.exe in C:\AppData\Roaming
 
photoshop.exe in C:\User%\AppData\Local\Temp
 
photoshop.exe in another folder whose path I can't remember but it was related to Windows startup.
 
 
 
The taskhost files' Type and Attributes fields under details panel both said "Microsoft ® Windows ® Operating System". And that the file was 90kb rather than the 67kb taskhost was in my Windows folder.
 
I disabled my wireless adapter, found the offending program in task manager and tried to close it. I got a warning dialog that there was unsaved data open in said program and closing would cause me to lose it. I clicked 'close anyway' and my computer blue screened and commenced a memory dump.
 
The taskhost and winr... Read more

hi,
Your post is a few days old. If you still need help you can get a download that we will use as starting point. Please post both the logs it generates in your reply and we will go from there:
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/farbar-recovery-scan-tool/
If your not sure which one to run; Download them both and try running each one. The compatible version will be the one that actually works.
Right-click on the FRST icon then click "Run as administrator"
When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer
Press the Scan Button.
When the scan is done, it will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool was run from.
Please copy and paste the log in your next reply.
The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt also located on the desktop).
Please copy/paste both logs: FRST.txt and addition.txt in your reply.

Hi,
 
i have had a stange problem commence a few days ago, I have checked numerous threads on this forum which address inet dropouts but still cannot work out why it is occurring.
 
Hardware as follows:
 
Pentium 4 3GHz
2GB RAM
TP-Link  TL-WN751ND wireless (firmware v1.1)
 
Software:
 
XP Pro SP3
AvastPro AntiVirus
Malwarebytes Pro
 
I am running of ONLY one router.
 
For some unknown reason a few days ago my inet connection dropped out.  After trying all the basic attempts to fix it, I found the only way to reconnect was to create a BRIDGE in Network Connections and to bridge my wireless driver with the V100 driver, and then immediately UNbridge them.
 
This allowed me to reconnect but the system keeps dropping out at random intervals, sometimes after 20 minutes, others after 2hours.  On average, it drops out every hour odd.  Every time it drops out, I again have to perfom the bridging/unbridging to get it going again.
 
I have since performed the following to no avail:
 
 - Upgraded to the latest version of T-Link firmware
 - REPAIRED Windows XP system
 - Restored latest wireless drivers/firmware again
 - run all microsoft updates
 - disabled Avast & Malware
 - Ran Microsoft Malicous ware tool
 - Ran complete virus and Malware scans (nothing found)
 - Ran every MicrosoftFixit relating to this problem that I could find, of which only ONE fixed a few files to no a... Read more

Answer:Internet drops out and will not reconnect unless bridging and unbridging occurs

Running Vista64 on HP pavillion. Wireless connects great after gigaset se567 is rebooted. But if I logoff or reboot my computer, I can no longer connect until I reboot the router again. Happens if wireless is lost as well.

Is an autoconnection to a non-broadcast SSID.

if I manually disconnect and wait a min I can manually reconnect.

Have done an ipcongif /all at one point and it showed all proper IP's etc, but I could not connect to any websites. Local access only.

Router or computer??

Answer:Cannot reconnect wireless after logoff, shows connected but no internet

try to use a static ip address
