Random micro-internet-disconnections

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I have a problem with my PC, and I don't know if it's hardware or software based =/.

I get random internet disconnections that just lasts 1-2 secs.
For example, i'm talking on Skype or Vent while playing a MMO, and then, suddenly, MMO gets disconnected, but skype and vent keeps working, and MSN messenger, forums and web sites doesn't work as well.
Connection comes back after 2-5 secs, and it's not a Router problem because I have 3 PC at home and they don't get disconnected (with the MMO on and such). It disconnects randomly, can happen once a day at a random hour, or couple of times a day randomly.

I did a format and keeps doing the same. I bought a new ethernet card and it keeps doing the same! Also, Antivirus doesn't find anything.

My question is: Is there any software to monitor my PC connections? Maybe there's a hidden virus that I don't know about (I did format, windows 7 64 bit, ultimate, only installed the MMO and drivers) or maybe it's hardware problem =/

Thanks for your help, and sorry if this doesn't go here!

Would you like to mention what service your using? ADSL? Cable? Fibre?
Another thing, what model modem/router are you using?

Hello and thanks for the reply!

I'm using ADSL, the rounetr is "Xavi".

Anyways, I have already changed the router. This problem started when I had a ZyXEL router, and other PC's doesn't have this problem, so I think it's not ISP or router problem >_< I even changed slots and cables, everything!

I usually solve my problems with PC, but this is giving me a headache >_>; I don't get the problem unless it's a virus, wich is quite impossible too because I did a format u_u

Thanks again for the answer!
