Question about Computers & Internet
Many things could be causing this ..
1. Defective Router
2. Defective Power Supply.
3. Router Thermal Shutdown due to Over Heat.
4. Plain ole user error.
5. Computer error
Routers are offten subject to these issues.
Computer error is what I suspect is happening to you.
1. Download ALL of the windows critical updates and service packs
2. keep your computer and the router cooled off , keep the room temperature down to 75F
3. Check everything to see if things are getting too hot. if anything is getting too hot to touch it's too hot normaly computer components should not exceed 145F sometimes more than 100F will cause
things to start shutting down.
Heat and DUST are the enemy.
4. make sure your computer is clean.
5. Once you've gotten all that straight , it's time to start digging
The very first thing to do is call your ISP to make 50000% certan that you have configured
your router and your computer exactly as they specify.
a router configured incorreclty can cause a loss of connection.
