having issues with my internet conection
    #3948447 - 03/21/05 01:00 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

ok, heres the situation. it works just fine for about 10 or 15 minutes, then everything just kinda times out. the only way ive found to get back online afterwards is to go into my network places properties and disable and re enable the conection. it will then work fine for another 10 or 15 minutes and it times out again.....i dont know whats up. is this on my end or on my interenet providers end? i dont even know where to start trying to fix this, i know very little about computers. i have cable internet through cox if that helps any....

I think I've had this problem before. It's software related. On your end I think. Spyware maybe? trying to connect to a site that is timing you out?

some adware runs hidden, and may be attempting to connect to somethign that's timing you out.

How likely is that? Do you have anti-virus/spyware software installed? do you do regular mainentence?

"I just had the same problem. It was my modem.. the power supply box that is on the cable was overheating, and eventually died. I didn't notice of course because it was laying flat, but once i flipped it over it was completely burnt. Now I know where that faint smell of plastic burning was coming from."

"You could unplug the cables and plug them back. Have you called your provider? They can run a test on the line and tell you if it is causing your problem. Your modem could be bad maybe they can send you a new one. Finally, if you could hook in another PC to see if the conditions are repeated, it wouls eliminate your computer as the source of your dilemna."

Good Luck  :mushroom2:

Ecstacy got me standing next to you
Getting sentimental as fuck spillin' guts to you
We just met
But I think I'm in love with you
But you're on it too
So you tell me you love me too
Wake up in the morning like "yo, what the fuck we do?"
