Losing Connectivity


Question

Howard Davis

I have a Dell desktop running Win 7.

In the last few days I've apparently been losing internet connectivity after a half hour to an hour or so after booting up.

Pages stop responding and I can't go to new ones. This affects all my browsers. I do not get any notice saying that connectivity was lost.

Rebooting the computer restores normal functioning. Problem in my software or with my ISP, GTT? If my computer, what can I do?

 

Thank you in advance to anyone willing to respond here.

So this only happens with your computer? Other devices continue without an issue?

 

You mention that this started happening in the last few days, I take it that means that before then it was working fine? If so, have you made any changes to the computer in that time? When it happens, open the command prompt and type ping www.neowin.net or ping 8.8.8.8. Does it respond or timeout? Can you ping other devices on your network, or does that timeout as well?

Hi Nick - thanks for the reply.

 

It may have happened occasionally before, but has become more noticeable recently.

I have no other devices, and I have made no changes to the computer recently.

I'll follow your advice when it happens again.

You don't have a phone?  Does the phone loose internet access as well? TV? Tablet? Alexa?  Its hard to image a home these days with just 1 thing that has access to the internet ;)
