I've gone through 4 Network Adapters for my computer. I always use wired ethernet for internet access off my Vizio router. No other computers on the network have any issue.
About a year ago I started having problems where my internet would cut in and out 2 minutes online, 30 seconds off, for DAYS on end. It never just failed, it would do this and sometimes even stop disconnecting for weeks at a time. Then finally it got unbearable and I tried switching to the 2nd onboard Ethernet plug and Ta-da it worked just fine again for about 4 months, then I started having the same issue of disconnects and re-connects, so I decided to swap it back to the old port but it was still broken. This time I went and bought a PCI Network adapter from a local computer repair place and again it worked fine, for another 4 months, then it too fell victim to the same series of connecting and disconnecting. So again I went out and bought ANOTHER PCI network adapter this one made it just a few months and today I started having the same issue. I've tried using different ports in the router, I didn't really expect it to make a difference and so far it hasn't.
Has anyone else heard of such a problem, or would it be wiser for me to just buy a new motherboard and hope it solves the problem?
