Alright, at the apts i live at my connection is just hook up and go (LAN) nothing to sign into or anything, but i find it really wierd that my connection dies all the freaking time and NOBODY elses does, they keep trying to tell me its my fault, theres something in my machine that makes them have to reboot the switches and I dont believe that because thats hardware...

It goes down at my parents house now too...SBC where you just log in through the router at the IP address specified on the router...speedsteam 5100.

Do you get the "limited or no connectivity" thing for your high-speed?
If so something is killing your WINSOCK...there is a simple dos command to fix it...it was happening to me all the time because I was using an optimizer for my PC...I called for like a year before they put me through to a real network person and in the end he says, "...with what you already know...why didn't you try that?!"
LOL!!

OK...when you restart...sometimes it works once it boots up right?
It is probably your firewall blocking pings from the ISP..(they check to see how long you are online and your usage ofcourse)...once the get to some many attempts...you get the FOREIGN LAN IP 169.xxx.xxx.xxx something

Start>run>CMD...
ipconfig
(you should see the BS)
ipconfig /release
(waiting....)
ipconfig /renew
(waiting....)
Now Kob..we been on here for a while...save this one

NETSH WINSOCK RESET CATALOG (press enter)
You will be prompted to reboot and your connect will be all hooked up!!!

How long will it keep it up for though? it really depends on how long it lasts and im using zonealarm if that counts for anything...should I go ahead and do this now or would I have to do it here AND there since its a different IP ping?

I use zonealarm as well my friend and the update did mysterious things like block my AIM, and some others...go into the program control and remove everything...(it will tell you something about system files...but whateveh)
reboot get the connect and pay real close attention to what you block and don't block...and turn component control off!!!!

you'll find the program that's blocking or corrupting your WINSOCK that way....
Best way is to defrag..yadda yadda yadda...and make sure you don't have any things running that are trying to connect BEFORE your firewall...that's what causes it...
Ever had your Lan connect before your ZA after a reboot after you disabled it before SHUT DOWN?

most likely...I just had a Trojan my sister sent me and it wiped two of my systems out cause I had a Lanparty and it was still connected via the hub...
Set the Advisor to manual...that way it always asks 1st...(still doesn't do like the Old ZA!!!)
