I am having a sporadic connection to the internet. I have:
Windows XP Pro SP 3
Zone Alarm 8
I have done:
Avast anti virus - updated and run full scan - no viruses
Spybot S&D - updated and run full scan - no problems
Windows Defender - full scan - no problems
I have the same problem with FireFox and IE
I have checked cables and tried other port on the router. No change. Other computers - no problems.
A few weeks ago, I had no problems. I have not installed any new software. One day my internet connection was not working at all, and I ran the Windows wizard to fix the problem. I got my internet connection back, but it will stop working for a minute or two. When I try and go to a web page, I get the error "Server not found". I keep hitting refresh, and after awhile my connection comes back and the web page will load.
What do I need to check so I can keep my internet connection?
