  1. Internet Keeps Dropping Out


    I recently got a new PC and realized that there is a problem with the internet. I have an ethernet cable plugged in but every few minutes or so, my internet will drop for a second or 2 and come right back on. This is the same ethernet cable and everything I have been using on my old PC (it broke about a week ago so I just got a new one) so I'm pretty sure there's a problem within my PC. I've tried using only wifi and it works decently, but it's not enough to game on, and I haven't played enough on it to see if it cuts out. Is there any idea for what I can do to solve this? The problem started ever since I got the PC, about 3 days ago.


    Questions that might be asked:

    Does the internet cut out for any device in my house? No, just this PC

    Am I sure the ethernet isn't faulty? I switched between two cords just to double check and the problem occurs with both.

    :)

    Internet Connection Keeps Dropping


    Hello, are you always connected to the same router - or are you skipping to others? Suggest disabling these settings:

    Also check your channel is not congested, and signal strength is adequate. There are freeware tools which can show you this information.

    You might have to change band (frequency) - and in one scenario where someone was renting a place it was suggested the owner was restricting Wifi bandwidth...!

    I'm sure others more experienced in these issues will comment.

    My internet keeps dropping out!


    I suggest you connect your laptop to the router with a ethernet cable. If the wired connection is stable you know that there is nothing wrong with the internet connection itself and with your LAN. Next step would be to go to the website of your laptop manufacturer and look for the latest WLAN drivers. Install them and test whether it improves the reliability of your WLAN connection. Then post back the results.

    Internet connection dropping


    I had already tried this and it did not work. I did find an updated driver for my adapter (Realtek) and so far no more problems. Thanks for the suggestion!
