I can connect to the internet just fine, but periodically I will get disconnected. Soon after, I will be reconnected just fine (I know because I will be IMing people in Trillian and it shows me the disconnect/reconnect messages). I don't think it is a problem with my router, but it still could be. I had this problem in the past, and it seemed to have been fixed by replacing my router with a newer one. Now the problem has resurfaced, and I could be wrong, but two routers go bad in less than a year? I think it could be some sort of bandwidth issue... taking in more than the network can handle. The router doesn't say much more than "Microsoft", so I couldn't tell you what model it is. It's wireless too, but I connected to it through the amish-style cat-5 cable. The only internet applications that constantly run are Trillian on my machine and AIM on the other machine.

I don't know if I've given enough information to suggest any problems, but I'll take any input :thumbsup:

Does this happen only when you are using IM, or does it sometimes happen when you are doing other things on the internet?

I'll have to get back to you on that one. I pretty much always have Trillian open. I guess one thing I failed to mention was that, while I am constantly disconnected and reconnected, the other machine in the house will usually have an online time of numerous hours to days.

Maybe it's Trillian this time. I know that last time it was the entire network having problems.

After killing all of my connections, I still lose my internet periodically.

I'm going to quote myself here :thumbsup:

webdesignerken, what operating system do you run? Do you have SP2 installed? When your internet fails, does your router display a 'Limited or no connectivity' message? If it does, then try the following:
1) Download, and run the Microsoft Patch:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...&DisplayLang=en
2) Disable Media Sense:
http://www.michna.com/kb/WxMediaSense.htm
3) Download and run the WinSockXP fix:
http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html
4) Run the following commands:
Start > Run > Cmd > netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt (does the same thing as the WinSockXP fix)
Start > Run > Cmd > netsh winsock reset

You may also wish to set up a Static IP Address, as many people state that this solves their issues. Just remember to restart your computer!

Try those, and see if any of it helps to resolve your issue - those steps have helped many people with similar problems. Good luck.

1) Win XP
2) Yup, SP2's here too
3) Nope, I don't get a popup saying "Limited or No Connectivity" unless my router is actually off.
4) I also have a static IP address too.

Would your fix still work if all of the above is true? Or is this an ISP-side issue? :thumbsup:
