Hey everyone. I have this weird internet problem since yesterday that I couldn't figure out, and maybe you guys can. For some weird reason, when my computer is turned off, my dsl modem works fine and I can normally access my internet on my laptop. However, When I turned on the computer, almost immediately, the internet light on the modem keeps blinking while it looks for a connection, and never stays solid. I inspected the wires and cords and made sure they were plugged in correctly, I tried plugging the dsl modem directly to my computer, rather then to the wireless router, and it still didn't work as long as my computer was on. My bet is on some firewall issue or even power supply issue, But I have no clue. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I'm thinking along the lines of some sort of A/C power line problem.

Yeah, it could be power supply because I tried something else today. I placed the computer on standby (low-power mode), and the dsl started working again. Just in case though, I'm going to try plugging some other hardrive into my comp, to see if any programs are affecting the network connections. If the dsl light is still blinking, I can guess the issue is external. Thanks, Checking....
