Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

On my main PC I keep losing connectio to the browser, after a few minutes, I have to re-start to get connected again. Internet access remains (Skype, google mail notifer) and my laptop is no problem. I use Windows XP and have broadband via a Netgear modem. I have a 50ft run of cable to my office but I have tried connecting at the line in point without that cable - no difference. The problem started at the same time as an accidental click on a zione alarm upgrade offer (I tried to delete zone alarm later) also I got a Trojan. I upgraded AVG free to Paid version and that quarantined the trojan. I have tried trojan remover (found it dealt with it, registry scanners/fixer) follwed various ideas around the place but still got the problem. Can you help? Sure you can!

Hello there,

I am surprised that someone suggested system restore. Trust me. This is not a problem with your PC. Its your modem. I had this problem with mine a few days ago. In my case it was even allowing my bittorrent to download stuff. But it wiould not let me connect to the internet. To confirm what I said next time you get the problem, dont restart your computer. Just turnoff your modem wwait for two secs, and turn it back on. You will be able to connect to the internet. If yes, then you have to get your modem's ethernet port replaced. Hopefully it works as it did for me.

Regards,
Sai.

My edimax br 6428ns keep on losing its internet connection...i have an internat connection around 30 min but it will stop and i need to run the setup again in order for it to work..


Check the connection type is not "Connect on Demand".
Check the Idle Time Out setting is not used.

This specifies the amount of time the router waits before shutting down an idle connection. This option is only available when "Connect on Demand" is selected. See the manual

I have been using my PS3 to access the internet and it has being working fine until recently it now wont let me on the internet saying it doesnt have Adobe Flash Player to watch trailers or things like itv...


Try this and if it doesn't work let me know and we will go a different route.


  1. Start your PlayStation 3's web browser. You can do this by navigating to the "Network" category on your PS3's main menu and selecting the "Internet" option.

  2. Point your web browser to a website that uses Flash. YouTube, at www.youtube.com, is a good example.
  3. Let the page load. Depending on your Internet connectio, this could take a few seconds.
  4. Click "OK" when the box reading "Install Missing Plugin" appears on screen. As Flash comes pre-installed on the PS3, this will update you to the latest version of Flash. You will know the update is complete when YouTube videos then begin to load.

I bought an HP Laptop 3 months ago (with Windows Vista) and the Internet keeps crashing when I'm online. It starts up again automatically, which helps, but I lose the pages I was on. Is is my PC or Vista?...


Try clearing your browser history & cache. When these get to full it causes the problem you describe. You can access these features from the tools icon on your browser>internet options. Hope this helps.

Keep losing wireless network on laptop. completely disappears and can not find it to reconnect


Hi..
I was having the same issue with my notebook. I was losing connectivity to the internet at both home and office through my browsers and outlook consistantly after boot up for approximately 10 minutes. The only way to get more connectivity was to reboot my machine (ten more minutes). Emachines help desk was no help. Their fix all response was to format the harddrive and start over. What I did to fix it was:

Start
Control Panel
Network Connections
There, I disabled the wireless network connection and waited for the hourglass to go away. Then reenabled it and have had wireless connectivity since.



Good Luck ;-)

Keep losing internet connection


Recommendation: If you can switch from the 3rd party wireless utility to the Windows utility. There should be a check box under the properties that says, "Let Windows manage my connection." Also turn off any power management that stops your drives, suspends the machine, etc. When doing WEP, use the actual key, not your password. i.e. the one that looks like "aaff996753bc" not "rosebud".

Reason: Windows wireless starts before you even log in and loads as a service, it runs whether your logged in or not, sleep mode, etc. 3rd party utilities...especially my personal bane of all wireless devices "Netgear" load as applications. That means they don't initialize until after log in and they can be suspended completely or prioritized by power management and resource management utilities when the machine is idle. As for the key thing... WEP translation with Linksys especially can be a little funny with some wireless so I use the key itself which always works.
