OK, I have a Comcast cable internet. My modem is an Arris that is connected to a Linksys Broadband Rounter which is connected to my computer which is my internet connection. This router is also used for wireless laptops around the house. My problem is that I have internet for 10 seconds then no internet for 10 seconds. In the bottom right hand of my screen the is a little icon of two computers and it says "Local Area Connection 5 is now Connected" It also says "speed: 100.0 Mbps" After about ten seconds of that an exclamation point pops up in front of that two computer icon. About a second later this little yellow dot crosses the computers and after about 5 seconds of that the internet works again. During the exclamation point time it says "Local Area Connection 5- The connection has limited or no connectivity". I cannot read the rest of the message because I am not quick enough. I would appreciate any advice on how to solve this problem. Thanks.

Hello bosoxnm3,

This could be a number of problems.

Do all the systems experience this problem?
Does this happen when connected by cable or wireless?
Are there any other wireless networks in the area that can be detected by your systems?
Does the system in question use a firewall? If so which one?
Regards,

Alan.

It is a wired system. My laptops all function perfectly with the wi-fi from the lnksis. I have firewalls on as well.

Have you got a spare cable that you can use? It sounds like a problem with the wiring.
Regards,

Alan.
