Alright, let the rant begin:
A month back, Comcast backstabbed us and gave us <1 Mbps, when we were paying for 40+ Mbps. After three different routers and three different tech support guys came over, we "solved" the problem. Only not really.
It seems everywhere else the internet is fine. On this computer though (HP Pavilion p7-1534 PC, running Windows 8) it's anything but fine. The problem is that the connection randomly drops and says "Limited" in the Networks panel. I can reconnect immediately, but I play Wizard101 and once you lose connection for the slightest second, you have to restart the entire program (Which takes close to a minute). It has also been bothering other users of this computer.
Another odd thing is that, when I try to check the "Connect Automatically" box, and we lose connection again, the box NEVER stays checked. Even weirder, ALL of the other networks in my area have the "Connect Automatically" box checked. I think this may be part of the problem.
I am an avid hater of Windows 8 because nothing seems to work, including this. The internet was working fine until Comcast backstabbed us, but now I think it is just the computer.
Any ideas how to solve this? I am getting REALLY tired of it.
Thanks in advance for any help.
One more thing: We have no bandwidth problems, it just randomly dorps. My parents are considering buying a booster, would that solve the problem?
