Network connection randomly drops
Oct 29, 2011, 2:44 AM
Hey guys, I've been trying to fix a problem I've had for 6 months now and have finally given up and am looking for some help.
My network connection randomly drops for 30 seconds at a time, several times in a row. I have a bout of disconnects at least once a day. The facts:
Occurs with 2 different ISPs, one was cable, the current one is DSL
Occurs with different modems, both a cable and dsl modem
Occurs when router is bypassed, as well as with 3 different routers I've tried.
The connection is lost throughout the household, not just my system.
I'm using Windows 7 currently.
Where do I even start?
