    #1396525 - 03/20/03 11:09 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

on how to fix this damn problem...i have a cable modem, ive had it for years, never one problem, i think ive been connected to the internet non stop for 4 years...and maybe 5 or 6 times been disconnected, but never for more than a couple of hours....a few days ago i downloaded some anti virus software off kazaa that i thought was infected with a virus because my internet connection would get cut off, but unknowingling....my modem says its connected and sending and recieveing files...all the wires are properly hooked up, becuase check this out, when i unplug the wire that comes from the modem to the ethernet card it says a net work cable has been unplugged, but then i can get back on aim, the internet, kazaa everything....but then 5 miinutes i get rejected again...anyone who can help please. for some reason my computer is my sanctuary...i can always pass hours of hours of time in the blink of an eye with this thing. so anyone who can help...be most appreciated.

it sounds like you need to call your ISP...tell your mommy to call them if need be but your modem might be on its way out

1-uninstall the virus software.

2- format( if you really have to ).. j/k

3- is it 5 minutes exactly??? if so, i'd say it's your provider.

Interesting...

A friend of mine has a cable modem and the same thing happens to her. I went over to her apartment last night to try and fix it, and I was stumped.

She told me that everything was running fine until she starts to use Kazaa.

I know that there's some auto-bulldog-named anti-virus software that Kazaa hooks up to. I'm thinking its a Kazaa problem?

She can surf the net and DL things all day. After she starts up Kazaa... 5 minutes later, POW, she's offline???

If you happen to find a reason for it, please post it.

Thanks,
Lana
