I work at a hotel and I am limited to the internet they provide since I live on property. They recently upgraded to wireless, now I already had a wireless card from where I use to live and it functions. Recently they put me back on wired because I have had and am still continuing to have an issue where I disconnect every 15 minutes. I have turned off my firewall to check and ended various programs that might interfere and the problem persists. It seems to be local to my computer as I have seen others work without flaw on the same internet. Does anyone have any suggestions on other things I might try. I intend to grab a new wireless adapter at the end of this week but if its persistent to my computer then I am not sure a new one will change anything. I am running windows 7, using system mechanic and currently disabled the firewall while I try to fix it and I am connected via ethernet cable as I removed my wireless adapter as well while I try to fix this. (since it was suggested the firewall may have been one of the problems.)
Antivirus web protection? Turn off power saving setting, update drivers for lan and the wifi card, bios, if lan is bad a new card is unlikely to fix it.
Are you sure its not the router you are connecting to isn't crashing and rebooting or loosing connection. Did it start after they upgraded to wireless?
it started after and they have sent tech guys out regularly I have seen other computers run fine right before me but mine persist with its problem at the same time, tried updating and reinstalling drivers, they've assured me whatever it is, is local since other computers no longer have the problem I am having which I witnessed myself
