May be I should do another topic to get a deep look on my computer to see if there is something in there hiding from my antivirus. The last day I couldn’t run my antivirus or malwarebytes the computer didn’t let me to open the programs, error’s everywhere and the computer became very unstable, so I decided to do a clean windows installation and now things are working as normal.
The rest of people with computers in the house don’t seem to have any issues with their wireless, but I did a test in one of their laptops with the windows diagnose tool and I got the same error as the one I have.
“Troubleshooting couldn’t identify the problem”
I call my internet provider this morning to do another check on the router, and once again everything is normal on the router from their point of view. I asked them to reset the router to factory default, and change my factory default SSID with another name and password.
What I found is that with the new name and password I could stay for longer connected to the network like 45 mins instead of 20mins, but the connection also dropped, so didn’t fix the issue. So I logged inside my router and change the new password to a different one. My surprise was that once I change the password, I came back to square one, 20 mins of connection before it dropped; now I couldn’t stay not even for 20mins, dropped every 10 or 5 to 2 min range, this happened as I was browsing from different art photography websites, It looks like the wireless or network couldn’t handle the images.
Everything seems too strange, why when I change the password I could stay for longer or less, what is this telling me? My wireless card or router,
- If was my wireless card I would have the same issue stay, 20 mins , no 45, 10 or 5 mins range of connection even if I change the password or not.
- None one in the house seem to have any problems with their wireless connection, except me.
Anyway, I remembered few weeks ago I was getting constant DNS errors and connection drops, what I have done and I don’t know if this is right to do or not, is going to my “Network and Sharing Center”>>”Manage Wireless Networks” click on “Adapter properties” and on the new window pop up “Wireless Network Connection Properties” select “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click on “Properties”
Inside I have set “Use the following IP address” and write down my IP address, subnet mask and Default gateway. Then on the second section of the same window I have set “Use the following DNS server addresses” and write down the “Preferred DNS server” and “Alternate DNS server” which I got my doing the “ipconfig /all” on my CMD window.
Is this the right way to do this? And how save is from intruders?
Now the connection seems quite stable, 3hrs and no drops so far.
Sorry for my long comment
