    Hmmm... a bit stuck. It seems every 15 minutes I get limited connectivity even though I'm using static addresses for some reason I get the yellow ! with limited connectivity about every 15 minutes. I'm not able to ping out at all and after about 2-5 minutes the connection starts working again just fine.

    Just not exactly sure what to look for next. This seems to be the only machine effected out of 6. Also the only one running vista and I'm still a bit new to vista. I have flushed the dns, cleared the arp cache and reset winsock so far, but there still appears to be a problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    The fact that you're using static IP addresses won't affect network connectivity issues, they'll just tend to mask some of the indications. How about telling about the entire network?


    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.
    The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, 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?




    On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

    Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

    PING 206.190.60.37

    PING yahoo.com

    NBTSTAT -n

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    My ISP is Comcast.
    My setup is Motorola Surfboard SBV5220
    Linksys RTP300 (non-wireless)
    Linksys WRT54GS
    Linksys WRT54GS

    My modem is connected to the RTP300 via the wan port then out of that RTP300 that connects to each wrt54gs via their wan ports.

    RTP300 is 192.168.15.1/24
    WRT54GS (guest) 172.16.0.1/24
    WRT54GS (mylan) 10.0.1.1/24

    Running Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 with all the current updates. Also this is the only machine effected. It's hardwired to my wrt54gs and I'm just confused how I'm going to get limited connectivity with a static address. I'm unable to ping or connect to anything when the issue occurs.

    It would be nice if there were an error message, but there's not. :confused:

    Have you tried with DHCP enabled on this machine?

    Not since the problem has been occurring nor have I tried wireless. If I remember the last time when I first set this network up I was having a similar issue with XP and it ended up being one of the ends of the cat5 cable. I made sure both ends were firmly pushed in earlier and I just got home so I'll see what happens.

    If the issue still occurs then I will try wireless with dhcp and see what happens. When the issue does occur shouldn't there be some where in the event viewer at the time of error that might have some information?

    Forgot to say when the issue does occur when I "Diagnose and Repair" it always seems to fix it, but it doesn't tell what it did to fix it.
