Home Network Issue

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I've recently moved into a new place and I am having a lot of difficulty keeping a stable wired connection on any of my devices (PC, Xbox, Laptop when using ethernet).

Currently, the router is plugged into the phone line (ADSL) in the lounge directly below me. There is an ethernet wall socket next to the phone line port, allowing me to plug an ethernet from the router into it, to which I am running another ethernet cable from the other ethernet port upstairs in the adjacent room to my PC.

Quite simply, every time I turn my PC off and on again (either straight away or the next morning for example), I am unable to then connect to the router, with both my PC and the router itself showing no connections. I then have to go through a process of unplugging, turning off and jigging around of everything, to which it may then hopefully reconnect.

My guess is that the ports or cabling between them is faulty, but was wondering if there are any checks I could do to possibly find out for sure what the issues might be. If anyone can help me out here, I'd be really grateful.

Thanks!

It sounds more like it would be an issue with your computer. Try reinstalling the drivers. (Fully, safe mode, remove it, restart, reinstall)

Thanks for the ideas but I had already done this thumb.gif

The internet is using the same router etc that I had in my last place as I transferred my connection, plus all my other peripherals were using the same connection too without any problems.

I picked up a powerline kit last night and it seems to be working great, not even noticing any difference to be honest. I'm still going to try figure out what could be the problem though, the powerline adapters weren't cheap haha.
