Weird internet problem..

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

So over the last two days I have experienced some problems with my internet. Basically when im playing games it will lose connection with the server, this happens on more than one game. Also I used to be able to stream tv shows and movies from justintv and now it is all jumpy and wont stream. A lot of websites time out and others just dont fully load. However when I do a speed test my speed is fine. 35mb download and 1.14mb upload. This happens on more than one computer so I doubt it's a problem with my pc but I'm no expert.

I'm running cable internet and my pc is hardwired to the modem.

I called my ISP last night and they said there was nothing wrong but they reset my line from their location and for the rest of the night the net worked fine. Now all of a sudden it's happening again.. Anyone know what may be causing this?

Thanks for any help and/or advice

P.S. Here's my most recent speed test..

Does this only happen when you're in the server browser or do a refresh?
What kind of router do you have?

The simple process of opening hundreds of connection in server browser will peg the CPU and/or RAM on a lot of older or el-cheapo consumer grade routers.

Did this originally happen behind your router and now you promoted your PC to be directly behind the modem? Or are you using your PC as a router? Or.. ?

Yup, this used to happen to my router when i would use torrents. I had to reboot the router to get it working again.

After your ISP reset your line were you playing a game when it started happing again or did it happen out of the blue.

Next time it happens, try accessing your routers web interface and see if there are any obvious problems, then reboot it and then don't play any games for a while to see if the problem comes back, if not, play your games and if it bogs down again you'll know that your games and the router is the issue.

Good luck!
