hello, I have been having this recurrent problem where things like torrents, popcorn time or DRM programs for games wont work. I have not yet pinpointed the issue but after doing some research I started doing some research and downloaded tweaking. after running it I noticed that this fixed the prroblem, specifically if I run the repair network tool, which does this.


Repair Network:
This will clear the stored DNS cache in Windows. When the DNS becomes corrupt you will not be able to get to some sites. Flushing and rebuilding the DNS will fix that problem.
Also resets Winsock entries & resets TCP/IP stack.
This repair will also restore the Winsock and Winsock2 registry keys.
These extra commands are run on Windows vista and newer.
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int 6to4 reset all
netsh int ipv4 reset all
netsh int ipv6 reset all
netsh int httpstunnel reset all
netsh int isatap reset all
netsh int portproxy reset all
netsh int tcp reset all
netsh int teredo reset all
after that my connection is fine, but after 2 hours or less it starts having problems again so i have to rerun this.... My question would be, what could be the problem, is it the computer or the modem or ISP. and what can I do to fix it permanently? I ask because my ISP sent someone over but the connection in his laptop was working fine so they told me it was my computer and charged me for the visit.
some more information: my computer works fine with any other connection except this one, but any other computer works fine with this connection. when browsing in chrome, it will take about 10 seconds to open up a webpage, where it will just say connecting at the corner and then suddenly open it up really quick (this is fixed with the tweaking program).

can you tell something about your system specs and OS?  :cowboy:

Like you said it is temporary fix, what i think is that may be you have old outdated drivers(network) causing this issue!  :huh:

Since you are using torrents there is a strong possibility you are hacked /infected.
