Disconnects

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Nildarm is the provider I use in my house and has been for 3 years or more. My brother had the connection from just over a year ago and had no problems, now I have taken it over since he has moved out and Im having troubles. So for almost 2 years it was ok and now its not.

Basically I will lose connection and it will not reconnect. This seems to happen when I play games like BF2 or wow. I can be playing wow go to windows and open up explorer and I will not be able to connect to any sites. Yet I must be connected in some way because I can still play wow. If I get disconnected from wow I will not be able to reconnect, the only way to resolve this was to restart my pc or sometimes restart my modem/router.

3 weeks ago I had a new computer made for me. The problems I had before are the same. Yesterday I recieved a new modem/router and the problems are still the same... well apart from one thing. Lets say I was playing wow for a few hours and I try to use explorer and I cant connect to the sites. I then exit wow. Normally I would not be able to get onto anything on the internet. But now I can reconnect to Ventrillo (I use this when playing). really wierd.

I have been on the phone to Nildram support for many hours in the last few months. They have checked my router settings and done line tests. Boy am I sick of line tests. Im starting to think and hope that its not the line but the way I have set it up. Do I need to open certain ports etc to play these types of games? Should I have my connection in another nic? Any advice will be appreiciated.

To me it sounds like something is wrong with the line. If it was an issue with ports, it would never connect in the first place. Since you have replaced the computer and the modem, we would assume they aren't at fault. If you haven't yet, try replacing the cable connecting your computer to the modem.

The only other thing I could think of would be putting a metal pan over it; My friend had his modem doing very strange things for about a year and no one could figure out why. It turned out since they were on top of a hill, a radio tower or something was interfearing with his cable modem. That's really a longshot, but it couldn't hurt to try.

Do you have any other pc's on your network? If so have you configured each pc to have its own internal ip? You want to make sure your router is running DHCP

okay here's my way of fixing a computer that's pissing me off, don't try this at home, screwdriver in one hand, hammer in another, use the screwdriver to take of the paneling, and use the hammer from there-on-out, j/k but yeah it might be that there could be intereference running through the cable that's screwing it up. if you have a fluke cable tester, i suggest using it. what kind of cable are you using, and do you live in a highly populated area??

A penny dropped when you mentioned am I living in a highly populated area. The answer to that is no, but new houses and estates have been put up in the last few years. Maybe it is the line and thats the reason. Anyways thanks will get onto the phone company now.
