I have one PC dropping packets, not streaming a crossing around the network, and every long transfer times for files.
What is NOT happening.
Router is working, only 1 PC dropping packets
Replaced NIC, still happening
All other PC keeps connections, while this PC keeps dropping
Changed ethernet cables
What is happening.
Dropping packets during pinging to yahoo.com, almost 50%
no packet lose during pinging localhost // IP address
unable or every choppy streaming of media from this computer
transferring files take forever, 10 minutes turns into 4 hours and counting
What I did.
Reformatted a few times, and from WinXP to Win7
Recorded ping test to yahoo & localhost & a PC on the same network for several days
What the issue is.
PC starts up, streaming, transfering, remoting works fine for sometimes several days to only a few hours. Then at some point, I am unable to stream, transfer, or remote control correctly anymore. Restarting right away does not help, only leaving it off for a while seems to be the current work around.
Other then replace the whole PC, what is going on here? I am out of ideas. Thank you for reading this long post.
The two PCs in my signature are also on my network, the computer I am having issues is P4 3.4ghz, 1 GIG DDR, some low end graphic pci card? I can get more specs in a little while. All PCs are wired and it shouldn't be the ISP as no other computer is getting dropped.
