Hey guys,

I need some opinions on this one.

I got a W7 Ultimate and after 1 months of use my internet connection stoped. All my other 3 computers work fine and they are all connected to the same router.
I reinstaled my Windows and the internet worked for another 1 month. Then it simply stoped again.
I tried everything from "restarting router, disable and restoring LAN connections, switching LAN cables, every basic stuff that i could think about(i dont know a lot about PC)" they just dont work.
I have bought a LAN card and this one worked for another 1-2 weeks and again my internet stoped.
I cut the POWER for 1-2 days, and after restart my computer worked for 1 week then again.
I think the onboard LAN components from my motherboard are the problem since my computer is 3 years old at least, or is the BIOS or some configurations, or some patches i need to install.
If u guys have some ideas, tips how i can find the problem it would be a huge help.

Anticipated thanks,

If the other computers work fine, and with all that you have done, I don't think it is a hardware problem. I would certainly replace the Ethernet cable right away - they are cheap and not very durable. You might switch ports on your router too.

Then finally - have you scanned for malware? Do you have a decent security setup?

Hi.

Though you may only visit a few SAFE sites, some of your ports may still be vulnerable to drive bye attack especially if you router is not secured, so you should at least have a firewall, something like Comodo free.

An anti-virus, AVG free.

Anti-spy ware, Spywareblaster free.

If you need help. start a new topic in forum, Security.

i allsaw find where that problem comes from.
The ADOBE Photoshope creates a think called Bonjour.exe that somehow blocked my internet connection after a while.
And yes i will start looking for a Antivirus. Thanks for fast replay guys.
