I have issues with my internet at my college. I use an Ethernet connection to connect to the network and am assigned a static IP. Recently I have been experiencing episodes where I can access the internet for about 20 seconds or so but then time out. Repeatedly I refresh the connection and the internet works yet again for a brief period (10-20 seconds). These episodes of intermittent internet can last on end for hours and then magically resolved so that I have a fully working internet connection. Any reason you folks think why this happens? Is there any way I can effectively resolve this issue? I’m wondering if there is someone on the network who disrupts my connection or perhaps is there a router/gateway/switch that needs to be reset or even replaced on the network?
Thanks for all your help!
P.S. We use a DHCP server.
