I have recently had the internet set up in my room. I have it downstairs and in another room but...
Its not shared with a network or anything. I have a modem in each room and single cables that go into the phone line (having to unplug which ever line i do not wish to use)
This computer used to be my mums, but i got it given. It had problems before...
When ever it was connected to the internet, it would just cut out, and sometimes i would have to reset my computer or sometimes reconect, most of the time i have to reset because its like explorer jus dies on me n doesnt carry out any ending process actions.
Its been formatted and its clean from infections, malware etc
I dont know why it cuts out, sometimes its every 5 mins n some times every half hour.
But heres another thing, it only seems to cut out when im actively using the internet, when im away and i leave something to download, it can go for hours, infact it doesnt cut out at all.
I also find that my download speeds vary, im on 1.1meg n yet it takes forever to recieve... lets say a 1mb file on messenger.
I made some assumptions and thought that maybe im using to many applications which use the internet (i tend to have Firefox browser, Live messenger, WMP and Teamspeak open) n maybe thers an issue with over doin my bandwidth, i havent a clew but it only does on this computer, which is puzzling, is my computer over heating?
pls can anyone help me its rather annoying, would be gr8 if i could someone could sort it
