My computer keeps getting disconnected from the internet at random times. Every day it happens and resetting my computer works, or waiting about an hour or so. I think i MIGHT know what the problem is. I have a static ipv4, 192.168.1.8 so i can port forward for a game server, and maybe someone else on my network gets the same ip because I don't know how to block people from using the same ip. What else could be the problem?

Linksys router. Not sure what exact but do you need it?

My System


As you mentioned, an IP address conflict could be one of the possible problems. Have you tried logging into the router to make sure your static IP address is outside the DHCP range of the router?

I tried dynamic IP... Don't know why it won't work. Any steps to trouble shoot?

Hello,

Is this a wired or wireless connection issue?

If this is wireless concern pls post a Xirrus snapshot, pls see this guide:

An ipconfig/ all output would also be great.

Panda, where do you have your static IP set. Did you set it in the properties of the network card or did you set it in the Linksys software?

Panda, you can set a static IP address the way you did or you can do it from within the Linksys router. Either way, you should make sure the address you assign to your laptop is out of the range of addresses assigned by the Linksys, as Jason mentioned above. If you log into the Linksys at 192.168.1.1, you'll see the starting IP addresses under DHCP Server on the first page. If the addresses start at 192.168.1.100, you're ok.

You also need to make sure all the info you manually configure on your wireless network card is correct - gateway, subnet, etc.

Start by updating your wireless network card adapters. Try going to the computer maker's website and download the latest drivers. Then right click on your wired network card and temporarily disable it. See if you have any problems.

The next issue is your Wired network card which is not connected to your Linksys. Are you running Hamachi VPN software?

Hi,

Try disabling the VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter, this might be causing an issue.

Test your connection after and post another update.

If 2xg's suggestion doesnt fix this.

Then my question is how crazy are you going with the portforwarding? just one or two ports?

If you port forward like 1 to 20000 this can cause routers to fall over, also upnp can cause a router to fall over.

If you had an ip conflict you would be notified on both machines that you had a conflict.

If you dont have 1 message stating a conflict of ips then its not that, let us know.

My suggestion is to disable upnp if you use it and to disable any portforwarding you have on at the moment.
