    Hey everyone!

    Normally I can fix the computer issues that i stumble upon by searching the web but this time it has me completely stumped.

    It started a few days ago but it was only today that i noticed the issue. The problem is that whenever either me or my girlfriend turn on our computer the internet shutdown for everyone and as far as i can tell the only real way to get it back up reliably has been to reset the router. I have not been able to find any connection as to why this happens since no of the pc's have set IP's nor do that have the same preferred IP.

    I honestly have no idea how to fix this problem so I seek help here, and if there is anything I need to do or share i'd be happy to help.

    below I have attached a document with my 'ipconfig /all' information which I saw needed in another thread so i figured that it wouldn't hurt to just attachs it from the getgo.

    In advance, thanks for the help

    have you tried a different cable - using a different port on the router

    whats the make and model of the pc
    i would update the ethernet drivers


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Uninstall and allow windows to re-install the adapter and Driver
    goto the device manager > Network Adapters > click on the [+] to show all the adapters

    right click on the ethernet adapter and from the menu

    remove/uninstall the adapter

    Now restart the pc and allow windows to detect new hardware and re install the adapter and the driver

    I haven't tried different cables yet since both of the pc's are located more than 5 meters away from the router and we only have those two cables that are long enough.

    I don't have the system info for the other cumputer atm but the spec on mine are here

    no.the tsg info does not give the make and model

    you quoted the instructions for removing adapter - did you do that ?
    and did you also use the updated driver you downloaded to install

    windows ultimate - is that a genuine copy installed ?

    yes, but only if one is running with the other is turned on, if just one computer is turned on there is no problem which is why it led me to thinking it was an ip conflict problem
