Hi,

I have been running into an issue where I lose my internet connection every 30-60 minutes. When I shut down my computer at night and then try to start in the morning I am unable to connect. I am running on Windows ME and am wondering if there is anything that can be done.

I have run adware and search and destroy but I've still have been running into this issue over the past week.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Are you on dial up or other?

Cable modem (comcast) and whenever I get disconnected the only way I'm able to regain the connection is to undo the cable that goes into the modem and plug it back in a few minutes later, but the connection only lasts a short time.

I talked with comcast and they weren't much help.

I was just wondering if there was something on the computer that need to be cleaned up.

Go to START RUN type cmd in the black box you type

ipconfig /flushdns ( MIND THE BRACKET BETWEEN g and /)
Reboot

Than :
* Clean your Cache and Cookies in IE:

* Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer
* Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab
* Under Browsing History, click "Delete".
* Click "Delete Files", "Delete cookies" and "Delete history"
* Click Close below.

* Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):

* Go to Tools > Options.
* Click Privacy in the menu..
* Click the Clear now button below.. A new window will popup what to clear.
* Select all and click the Clear button again.
* Click OK to close the Options window

* Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin

* Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
* Let it scan your system for files to remove.
* Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
* Press OK to remove them.

And see whether any improvement

Thanks Fozzie.

I've had limited access to the net the last few days so I haven't been able to run the instructions you listed. I will when I get home.

One other question.

Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.

I did the cleanmgr a few weeks ago and I believe I mistakenly had all the options selected to remove. Are there programs that I might have deleted that could be causing me problems?
