    Right.

    I have no idea why this is occurring. I have full wi-fi signal and I have a fast broadband connection.

    Every now and again the connection speed to just one PC drops to a point where there is almost no activity. I get various "connection timed out" and "DNS lookup failed" errors, then after about 10 minutes of frustration everything works again.

    I know this problem is isolated to just this one PC as I have done Internet speed tests from another computer.

    I have tried using different wireless cards, resetting the router, changing DNS servers. Nothing has worked.


    Help?

    Hello,

    go to start > run > type : ipconfig /all

    please paste the information into this thread

    also go to your router settings and name us the currently set DNS servers

    regards,
    John

    Thanks for the reply John.

    Here is what ipconfig shows:

    The DNS servers set on the router are:
    61.9.194.49
    61.9.195.193

    which I guess are the BigPond DNS servers (Being a BigPond router: TG782T)


    Hope this helps.
