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...

My internet connects slows (211kbps) and drops off completely. AT&T says it's inside the home. Anyway to check the modem? I have unplugged and restarted it several times


More likely your telephone junction box outside your house has a bad wire connection - I've experienced the same problem before for my DSL. In addition, sometimes my phone line would go out as well - no dial tone. Listen to your phone and check if you have a dial tone when the Internet connection drops out - they may be associated.

My ericsson w35 hub has very good reception but it drops my internet connection very often, is there a way to fix this?


Depends on who is your internet provider.

Your could try the Ericsson forums
http://fwt.ericsson.net

Or dslreports forum
http://www.dslreports.com/forum

There does seem to be a problem with the W35 and certain phone networks that Ericsson has not been able to correct.

Some phone networks don't have the capacity to fully handle voice and data, so when they get congested, the data connection gets dropped.

Set up a ping program to continually ping and this sometimes helps to keep the connection alive.

Good luck

Error 668 the coection was terminated


Usually associated with a 'choppy' or disconnected internet connection, for whatever reason - like the line outside your home, ISP problem - or incorrectly installed drivers /set upon your PC.

If the physical internet connection set up is fine on your PC ... cables- routers - - it can also be by driver problems. Try reinstalling the relevant drivers. It could also be a registry error.

Go first to http://download.cnet.com/Free-Window-Registry-Repair/3000-2086_4-10606555.html and download the free Windows registry repair tool. Run it when installed (takes about 5 mins to run).

If the connection still keeps dropping, try reinstalling any drivers you have - modem/router/wireless drivers etc

If the conneection continues to drop the problem may well lie outside of your hands - the ISP. It may just be a temporary problem.

Slow to connect to any webpage and at times drops


has nothing to do with the laptop its your internet connection, you may have exceeded the monthly download limit in which case your internet company will halve your speed and if you continue to download stuff they will cut you off, thats probably the most likely thing assuming this info is relevant to you

Windows WiFi Fix,

Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.

Windows XP:


Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Well, i tryed even typing i my wired connection dns code like 5 times i trye every solutuon on this damn help site adn nothing worked help me1


DNS is a internet problem, try restarting your internet, there is nothing to type in 5 times. If problem continues contact your internet provider.

Chances are you have a bad internet signals through your cables, and a slight spike in your cable will drop you out of your net play.

Internet want start


Hi mtaylor9,

Routers are great but they do have issues with distance, or certain walls that can interupt the connections. My suggestion is to have your daughter when she is connected to walk away from the router step by step, and continue this until it drops. This will give you the distance it will work for you. Then either move the router closer to her destination, or you can get another router than can act as a passthrough. The last option is to run ethernet wire everywhere which really defeats the purpose of wireless.

Good Luck
