I have a cable internet connection and a router to split it between my two computers. My older computer has no problems. My newer computer loses it's internet connection once or twice a day and I need to restart the computer. I still can't figure out why. My old computer runs XP Home. My new one runs Vista Home Premium. I never had this problem on my old system. It seems to happen randomly. I can be browsing the internet for hours, then suddenly it disconnects. Resetting the router does nothing, I have to reset the whole computer and it's fine again.

Hi Gamerlicious,

My Vista experience is lacking, so you'll have to bear with me here. First of all, when attempting to diagnose random issues, the Event Log is often a good place to start. In XP, you can open the event viewer by doing the following: Goto Start -> Run -> Type eventvwr -> Press <Enter>. I would imagine that it would be something similar in Vista. Now, I know that the Event Log/Viewer was revamped in Vista, so you may have to look for "Windows Logs" or something along those lines which should then expand, allowing you to select "System". Once inside this category, you should be looking for any warning/errors (denoted by a yellow "!"/red "x" respectively) that occurred around the time of the disconnects. If any appear, select them and you should be able to see relevant details, ie: Event_ID, Source, etc.. You should also have a Details tab allowing you to see more information. Please copy/paste this information into your next response.
[Vista Feedback - Please provide feedback on the above steps (ie: their accuracy / what did/didn't work, etc) in order for me to revise and update my future posts -- thank you.]

Along with this, when you become disconnected please perform the following steps:
  • Goto Start -> Run -> Type CMD -> Press <Enter>.
  • In the command prompt window, type: ipconfig /all
  • You can copy/paste the results by right-clicking on the command prompt window, selecting Select All and then press the <Enter> key. This will copy it to your clipboard, allowing you to paste it here.
Open a command prompt window, and type: ipconfig /release -- wait for the connection to release and then type: ipconfig /renew -- please post the results of these two commands.
