    you can try using the tracert command to try and solve whether the connection issue is on your end or is the problem of your ISP.

    Have you called Comcast to determine what the prob might be. It may well be their side has a problem? You're running a pretty nice system with what I see from the specs. Why aren't you using a network card in the system or off your board? Are your usb connections all up to par with the drivers needed? Some 2.0's or above need them. Let us know...Jazz

    i changed to using network now. USB likes to freeze up for some reason well the USB with the Internet connection freezes when it does i have to unplug and plug back in to reset it. All my drivers are updated pretty much weekly by me, i enjoy keeping system at best performance. I'm not the person on the Internet bill and the guy is hard to talk to about anything tech so im probably stuck with the problem for awhile
