My Internet Keeps Disconnecting...

Thu Feb 07, 2002 3:42 pm

For the last week or so everytime I go on the internet I keep getting disconnected from as little as a couple of minutes online to about half an hour...it was fine before.
Also pages are taking ages to load....
Any suggestions as to how I could fix it or what has caused it?

Thanks In Advance

If it's DSL it could be....shoot I can't remember the exact name....some kind of "storm"

Your ISP servers search the entire network for active IP adresses and it can cause this sort of "storm". I used to have the same problem till my ISP upgraded something on their end. I think that's how it was but I'm far from an expert!!

Call your ISP and complain.

Thanks guys...
I have a 56k modem...
another thing is after the page loads...it kind of freezes for a few as in like 10-15 seconds.
I will contact my ISP and see what they have to say.

If you are using an ordinary phone line to connect to the net, then it could be that if anyone tries to phone you, you're internet will disconnect. Just an idea.

I had this same problem after I reformatted my harddrive. No one knew what was causing it, not even Dell. It turned out that my modem speed was set too high. Try going to dial-up networking, and set your modem speed to 38.4 if it's not there already. That solved my problem.
