What Would Cause These Errors?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I've been losing my Internet connection a lot the last couple months, and I can't figure out what may be causing this. I will lose connection for 2 or 3 minutes at most, then I am back online again. This may happen several times a day. I am connected directly to my cable modem with an Ethernet cable. No wireless router or anything in between. When I go offline, I will have to disable my NIC and click the Diagnose button to let it sort itself out. Sometimes this may take a few attempts to finally fix the problem. I've also tried everything in this article as well. No matter what I have done, the fix is only temporary. My best friend is a network admin at the local hospital, and I've done several things that he has recommend as well. I have no clue what is causing this.

I will get the following message at times.



Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Maybe its not your computer and a issue with the cable modem nic going out or rebooting because it loses signal.

The modem is new and my own. I replaced the Comcast modem with this one around last October. I have thought about everything, even the modem being the cause. All lights on it indicate that everything is working as it should, though. I was actually wondering if the modem may be getting too hot internally and triggering this. It's placed out in the open where heat can easily escape from the vent holes, though. I usually can figure things out, but this has me scratching my head.

I self-activated my modem through the Comcast activation page without needing to call or contact them. Maybe there is something they can do on their end to check it? Maybe the need to update it? This Internet issue, or what ever it is, started months ago, AFTER the new modem was installed.

Turn off power saving on your NIC, causes all sorts of issues.
