Several days ago I started experiencing these weird, frequent disconnects. They last for 15 seconds up to a minute and they seem to be occurring randomly, perhaps 2-3 times per hour. I first put the blame on the router, but even after connecting my computer directly to the modem the problems persisted. Next my suspicions were aimed at my ISP, but there seemed to be no faults or maintenance work being done over there, so I connected another of my computers to the modem instead and to my surprise everything was working and the disconnects had disappeared. After ~3 hours I connected internet to my usual computer instead, and internet started disconnecting again. So obviously my computer is the culprit, but I've scanned it with many anti-virus programs and nothing turns up. I'm at a loss here - can someone help me out? Thanks in advance.
