Some basic info on my system:
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium SP2, 64-bit
CPU: Intel Quad Core Q6600
RAM: 4.00 GB
Router: Netgear ADSL router, DG834GT - currently connected via cable
Provider: Sky, 8096 kbps download, 768 kbps upoad speed
Browser: Mozilla Firefox 3.0.7
Problem: When browsing the web, it often apparently disconnects, giving the error message (for example): "www.google.co.uk could not be found. Please check the name and try again." When this happens, I cannot connect to any webpages. When I look at network and sharing centre, I get this:
When I ask Windows to resolve the problem, I get this:
I can connect to the router no problem:
After a few minutes, network and sharing centre shows that it is connected again:
BUT the same problem, doesn't connect. I can connect if I go to the router, click on connection status, then tell it to disconnect, then click connect:
It will then work again, sometimes for only a few minutes, before the same problem happens again. OF NOTE, other downloads WILL continue when this is happening, without any break in connection:
I don't understand why this is happening, and it is a hassle to have to click "disconnect" then "connect", and wait for it to connect, every few minutes. I can't figure out why I keep getting "disconnected" when I'm browsing webpages, but other downloads keep downloading OK. The problem persists when there are no other downloads happening also. Any ideas?
