I hope anyone can help me with this problem since it starting to get really frustrating when playing games.
My internet started dropping at exactly 15 minute intervals since 3 days now. Most of today the intervals arn't at exactly 15 minutes anymore but sometimes with a half our interval and few times exactly 1 hour.
In the windows event viewer i see regular warning messages at the times the disconnects happen with the message:
Name resolution for the name "randomadreshere" timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.
Though this error does not show for every disconnect i am having.
What steps did i try:
1 Take the power of the modem and router for 30 secconds, plug modem back in wait til its fully booted. Then do the same for the router and lastly the pc.
2 Contact my ISP, they told me they looked at the modem and did not see downtime with the intervals i described and refused to help me any further. Told me to contact cisco because i use their router.
3 Did a firmware update on the router (this also put it back to standard settings, so thats 2 things in one go)
4 Then a friend told me to try and do this in cmd:
Modemtype: unknown will need to look it up, standard from the ISP
Routertype: Cisco linksys e3000
Computer is running windows 7 64
I'm on a wired connection.
All the 'solutions' didnt do a thing and i have ran out of idea's. I really hope anyone on this forum can help me since i need to have a stable connection this sunday evening for a game.
If not i will have to dissapoint a few friends sadly (again...)
English is not my main language, so if i need to explain something better please tell!
