    Hello!

    I've been having troubles with my net ever since I bought my new laptop, a Compaq Presario c700, running Windows Vista. My net randomly disconnects and reconnects every few seconds for hours, while other times it is fine. It usually has these hours in the morning, and the afternoon. There are a few computers in this house that use the same signal, and mine is the only one that experiences these problems. Our ISP is Cox Communications, and I receive the signal from a computer in the house. Usually, I will restart computer, and also that of the network computer. However, this rarely works. When it does, it's for a short amount of time.

    I've disabled the power save mode, and also the auto tune. Neither gave results.

    I'm confused about the statement "I receive the signal from a computer in the house". What exactly are you trying to say here?

    Sorry for it not being clear the first time. :(

    But, my dad has the wireless network on his computer, so we all receive the signal from there.

    Are you saying your dad has the router attached to his computer?
    Why are you not using the onboard wireless in the Laptop?

    Yes, I am.

    And, I am using my on-board wireless.

    It seems now my net won't stay up...

    It's been disconnecting every few seconds for almost 24 hours now. Never been this bad!

    Any ideas? :(

    I still don't understand exactly how the network is configured. Are you saying if your Dad turns off his computer that all the other computers in the house cease to connect wirelessly? If so, that's a screwball way to configure a network!

    OTOH, your IP address appears to be for a broadband router, not ICS, which would be the case connected through another computer.

    Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

    Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
    Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
    Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
    Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
    Connection type, wired or wireless.
    If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
    Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.




    Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.



    • If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
    • For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
    • Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
    • If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?
