Hello and thank you for reading this topic
Lately I have been playing a game online and experienced connection issues. After sometime of playing my network connection fails.
- My game client has lost it's connection tot the server
- I am able to visit webpages, but this stops within half a minute
- After this, I cannot make visit websites (not in ie nor firefox), and I cannot connect to the lobby server of the game, nor to other servers by entering an ip adress.
Other servers I play on never give this problem, and I only seem to have experienced this two or three times in the past 5 years with other programs.
What doesn't work to fix
-Signing out and logging back in
-Ipconfig /release does nothing (does not even display an error message)
-Ipconfig /renew : same as release
-Turning off the my network adapter in device manager: device manager crashes if I try this
-I installed new drivers for this network adapter, the issue still persists
What does work
Restarting the computer always resolves this issue. Webbrowsing works fine, I can connect to the lobby server of the game or manually
Obviously, I don't want to restart my computer every time this happens, so I hope some know a more hassle-free way to fix this
Dual core 2*2.8Ghz
2 * 1GB DDR2 DIMM RAM
Windows XP SP3
Lan connection with speedtouch 510 router
Onboard network card: Sis 191 100/10
Thanks in advance
