Question about Computers & Internet
The problem that you are experiencing is an intermittent internet connection. This has something to do with your router's MTU settings (Maximum Transmission Unit). Lowering it down can fix the issue. Some ISP's have their own dedicated MTU but some just use the default values. Its better to ask your ISP what the right MTU to be used on your router.
1. Access your router's Setup Page or Admin Page through Internet Explorer. Type http://192.168.1.1 press enter. It will prompt you for username and password. By default type admin for username and password.
2. If you have the router's setup page opened, look for MTU settings. Default value is Automatic (1500). Set it to Manual MTU and set the size to 1492 and save the settings. Also check if you have there an option like "Keep Alive" and you need to select that.
3. Reboot your router after reducing the size of MTU. Observe the connection again if the same problem persists.
Note: If the MTU value 1492 didn't help, try these values; 1463 and 1400
