hi all, this is driving me insane, my laptop seems to decide which pages it will or will not open in my browser. rarely do i get a page that simply completely loads and with "done" in bottom left corner, its always left incomplete with "transerring data etc". this problem has slowly got worse starting from approx 3 or 4 months ago.
i noticed that my send and reciev packet activity status actually completely stops or at best goes at a couple of bytes at a time. also i seem to go from "local and internet" connection to just "local" quite frequently. by the way this is through a wireless router, but i have also tried with ethrnet cable and experience similar probs. ive had my laptop for just over a year and beginning to wonder if i need a new network card.
i realise ihavent put any specific tech data, but will if required

hope you can help guys :)

With a direct connection, preferably to the modem if possible, please run the following test.

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.


DSLReports

Here's also the Line Quality Tests FAQ to help you understand the results. This will answer some questions about the line quality display.
