This problem just started. I would be surfing or gaming. When surfing and changing pages would get a message saying "Internet connection has timed out", and page can't be loaded. This would happen after 5,10 ,20, min. on the net. I would then have to restart to computer to get back online. Wireless network signal strength is great but the connection is dropped anyway. Very Annoying, Help!!!!

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

4 Incription= None
5 Intel P4 cpu 2.40 GHZ ACPI Uniproccessor PC ( I built this myself 3years ago has been running fine in all ways till this)
6 OS= XP- Home Service pack 2

Detail Discription= I would be surfing the web when changing page or site I would get this message---
The connection has timed out

The server at 192.168.0.1(webpage trying to go to) is taking too long to respond.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
After the message appears I am unable to go to any page and get the same message. I have to reboot the system to get anywhere.

When playing online game The action would freeze then black out then I get a message that my connection has timed out.

Here is the other info you asked for:

Hard to say. All of that looks normal right now.

I'd say the most likely suspect would be wireless interference knocking you out for a time. Have you tried changing channels on the router?

I logged in to my router went to settings and only have channel 6 not another channel to choose from. I notice every once in a while when this happens the signal strength bar for my wireless PCI card (D-Link) blinks yellow white green white being lower strength as opposed to normally all green. Could it be a faulty card it is a couple years old. Doug

HUH? You have 11 channels in the US, 13 in Europe. Turn off automatic channel selection and you can manually change the channel, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
