Weird and Frustrating Internet Problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Right now I've got Roadrunner cable internet from Time Warner. Not entirely sure of the exact plan/speeds since I don't pay for it. Couple things that should be known first:

-The internet comes into the house and then directly into a D-Link 4-port router. That router is fully hooked up to route internet to my Grandma's computer, and then across the house to my computer and my parents' computer. Once the internet cable gets to my room it enters a Linksys 4-port router wherein it is routed to my computer, my Nintendo Wii, and my Playstation 3.

Now, here are some of the things I can't understand:

-If I leave my computer on for a long time the internet straight up dies. I can't go to webpages or load any games or AIM. This happens with both Firefox and IE although occasionally if Firefox won't load my homepage(google), I can start IE and IE will. Then, if I re-open Firefox it will also load Google.

-Once my connection dies after my computer being on for awhile, if I restart my computer it for some reason fixes itself and I can again use the internet as though nothing happened.

-My Playstation three is connected to the internet and for the most part it works fine. I can fold and report results correctly and purchase things from the Playstation Store most of the time. However the only game that I have so far played online, Fight Night Round 3, has some interesting quirks.

-Fight Night will connect to the EA servers and scroll the ESPN sports ticker at the bottom of the page. When I click 'Play Now' it will search for opponents and connect me to them. I can start up the fight as well but as soon as the screen shows the two fighters in the ring about 30% of the time I will disconnect from the fight for seemingly no reason at all. Also, I randomly get signed out of the Playstation Network and therefore Fight Night, but I can sign right back in immediately afterwards.


I don't really know anything about networking and this is really beginning to piss me off lol Anyone have any insight or help to offer?

Ok this problem could be caused by a few things.

1. Your computer could have a virus. I had the same thing happen to me and I couldn't find the source of it. The internet would work for a while then cut off and not work until I restarted. If you have any other partitions, try booting to them and see if your internet stays on there. I had to reformat to fix that.

2. If your internet goes through 2 routers, make sure their DHCP release and renew times are the same. This option can be found in your router's config and is usually set to 180 minutes. I just set mine to 99999 because it will keep it from temporarily cutting your internet off every 180 minutes (probably what you're experiencing with your PS3 disconnecting and you being able to reconnect right after).

3. Similar to #2, make sure both routers config pages are setup to be identical as possible. Forward same ports, same wireless settings, and try to give every device hooked to any routers a static external IP address.

Thats all I can think of right now. Tell me if any of this works and if not I'll think of some more solutions.

Edit - Just figured out how to get into the other router. I'll get back to you if I figure anything out.
