The internet keeps disconnecting on MY computer only. Everyone else in the house has excellent connection and mine just comes and goes. It mostly disconnects when i am watching videos.

Also, every time the internet disconnects, my computer freezes and i have to ctrl+alt+del and restart it. Everytime i restart it, the internet works again until i watch another video and start all over.

What's going on here? I cannot be restarting my computer 10 times a day!


Also, when the internet goes and i terminate firefox/ie with task manager, the internet reconnects but the computer moves reeeeeally slowly. If i try to relaunch the browser, it automatically disconnects until i am forced to reboot.

HELP!!
(Windows XP)

Do you have the same problem with an ethernet connection?

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2 or SP3.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.
