Lose internet Connection





Possum
Hi

I have 3 computers networked together with a router Modem ( IDSL)

One computer is Windows7 the other 2 are XP home..
Lately the XP computers have been dropping their Internet connections, usually just one computer at a time. All other networking services such as file sharing are running fine between all the computers. The Internet on the Windows7 is always connected.

What could be causing this ?

Thank You

Are they wireless? Maybe there's some sort of interference. A lot of older wireless phones and maybe even microwaves can cause hiccups or worse in wireless connections.

Check their connections and the DHCP server.

Are your network configurations on automatic mode? (In all the three computers)

If you don't have any special configuration on your router, you may do a reset and then test and see if the problem persist.

The router could be going bad or just be buggy. What model router do you have?

On the XP computers, do you have any special internet installed, like some sort of third party connection manager? (Does AOL or some program force you to sign in first to connect? etc.)
