Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
There are many things that can be causing this. Like; wired/wireless, if wireless how far away from your access point or router is your pc or you may need another access point for a stronger signal. Also try moving your pc when you loose your signal. Just a little repositioning might grab a stronger signal. Your modem: Try unplugging it when this happens wait for about 1 min then plug back in. You may be in an area that's causes "bottle necking" a term used for clogged internet signals. This usually happens during weekends and peak internet usage hours. This would be a job for your internet provider. There is also a reset on your modem. If unplugging doesn't do it after all the lights have come back on and the internet light stops blinking, look for a very small hole somewhere on your modem (not router). Get an object small enough to fit into it and strong enough to add pressure. Tooth picks won't work! Now push it in (while turned on) and hold it until all the lights go off. It may seem like it takes forever, just be patient. Once all the lights go out let go of the reset; wait again for all the lights to come back on & internet light to stop blinking.
If still same problem could possibly be your ethernet/wireless card going bad but they just kind of either work or they don't.
Start keeping tract of the times/days this happens and how long your internet is down. I'd do this for 1-2 days then call your internet provider. Theres one catch with them tho, they can't see your problem or diagnose it on their end unless your down at the time you call them. You may just need another modem. But keep on them if you come to this step. They like to say "ok your good now - bye" and then you'll have the same problem again. If this happens demand a new modem. It's free...
