Local Area Connection "Connected" but keeps disconnecting Windows Live Messenger
(I'm a bit of a newbie so bear with me please)
I'm on virgin media broadband and I've never had any problems with my internet. I got a Belkin G Wireless Router about 2 months ago and again, no problems. The computer is wired to the modem through the router using ethernet cables. The only thing on the network is my ipod touch and my mum's laptop which connects wirelessly, but she doesn't use it often so I don't know if she is experiencing problems too.
But about 3 days ago suddenly I kept disconnecting from Windows Live Messenger, for up to 2 minutes and every 2-5 minutes. I've tried resetting the modem and router and resetting the computer in various different orders but to no avail.
I've pinged my ip and got constant <1ms except for the odd 4ms or so, but nothing higher and this doesn't seem too much?
I really have no idea what the problem is; I don't think it's the messenger program as I haven't updated it and Facebook is also playing up.
The strangest thing is it says I am connected at 100mbps constantly in the bottom right corner. The two computers images flash between blue and black.. Not sure if they are meant to be constantly blue?
Please help as it is really annoying me. If you need more information I will try to give it you but as I said I'm a bit of a newbie.
