Greetz Pirillo Geeks,
I have an issue with internet in my parents house, hopefully someone out there is geeky enough to help with this...
I live in London, England, however I have come back home to Scotland for Christmas for 2 weeks and tested a couple of things.
1: New Modem installed
- Works when laptop is plugged in directly to it, no connection lost at any time.
- Coper Wire has been tested between Modem and Router, no issues found.
2: New router installed
- This is where the issue is now. It's a Netgear N300 Wireless router
- All wireless devices
- Tested Channels 1,3,6,11 (3 being the best and what we are currently using).
The problem we have here is that the inter will drop after 10 -30 mins of usage.
The only way to regain connection is to go to
Router Status -> Connection Status
Click "Release" to remove the Lease.
then click "Renew" to obtain a new Lease.
then the Internet is good for another round of 30 mins or so.
Hope someone can help with this, I can see why the lease needs to constantly be renewed all the time to make the internetwork for a further 30 mins before it has to be done again.
Then we know it's not your OS/computer. I'm going to say it's your Router at this point. Call your ISP tech support and see what they have to say about this issue. Make sure you tell them it's the same on all your computers.
Have you done a complete reset of your Router yet?
Sounds like a NIC (Network Interface Card) driver problem.
You can go to DriverMax.com and install Driver Max and then run a scan against your machine.
No matter what it finds I would install the Wireless Ethernet Drivers first and then maybe the
Chipset. The free version only lets you download 2 drivers a day. I use the paid version & it works
