I have one of the weirdest problems I have ever encountered in my life! I have been trying to solve it for the past.. three weeks, still no solution.
How should I start? well I would say that my internet is not working... wait wait, this is not the typical 'internet not working', otherwise I would go to the Networking forum. so what am I doing here?
to make short story long -
it all began when I decided to assemble my own PC. I bought the mid-latest parts on the market to build me my own creation for gaming and overall work area. here is the list:
- Intel i7 6700k
- Asus z170A ATX (motherboard)
- EVGA Geforce GTX 1070
- Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x16GB)
- Samsung 850 EVO SSD 1TB drive
And a good EVGA power supply, and a liquid cooler for the CPU.
Everything was working pretty good, until after a while, I started noticing internet 'glitches'.
Sometimes, when I was surfing on different websites, the internet showed a weird random error (SSL\lost connection\stuff like this) and I had to refresh the page several time only so I can see the page!
at this point you all think 'Oh this must be a common maleware.. wut a noob..' well its not that simple.
I was thinking the same, that something might 'clung' to my OS and I ran every program I knew to find and kill it. needless to say, I came up with nothing. The problem continued to appear every once in a while, and I noticed that as time passed it got even worst and worst.
I tried re-installing windows, thinking a clean installation will do it. didn't help
I was then thinking maybe a different OS would tell me if the problem is the OS or something else, so I installed Ubuntu (on clean formatted disc), as you can imagine, problem was the same.
Oh and the most important thing that I didn't say, this is not ISP issue! I tested the same connection on different computers, they all didn't had any issue. I also tested with different ISP, but it had the same problem (even tried using the cellphone internet). meaning the ISP is not the problem.
Every sign was telling me there is something wrong with the hardware.
At first, I bought a new network adapter. no help.
I thought it might be an issue with the BIOS clock so I bought and switched the BIOS battery. no help.
I ran out of ideas so I decided to disconnect the graphic card, and 1 ram slot to see if this was the problem (I tried both RAM's alone). no help.
I then decided to get a new motherboard! a different band, with Z270 chipset. no help
I then thought it might be the SSD problem! I bought an M.2, removed the old SSD, installed fresh windows 10. no help
I am getting crazy! I don't know what else to think! It might be the CPU, but I have never seen anything like it.
Also, I ran the CPU diagnostic tool to see if it is, but it came up with nothing, saying the CPU is in good condition.
I ran flush dns, and all sort of basic stuff... check registers, ran different diagnostic tools.. none can tell me what the problem is!
I really hope this forum has what it takes to help me with this problem!
Sorry for the long post, I just want you to know everything I did.
