I really need help, my Local Area Connection constantly keeps disconnecting for no reason, Ive reinstalled windows 7 thinking I had a virus but that didnt work, my wirless connection on my laptop works with no problem, the computer works in safe mode yet stops working when i boot up properly. Ive researched for hours and the only thing that worked for me is changing the duplex from auto detect to 10MB Full Duplex but that makes my internet really slow, it stops the disconnecting but its slow. Recently Ive installed XP, I didnt have to change the duplex and the internet worked flawlessly, but as soon as i started a game ( such as Team Fortress 2 and Counter Strike and Halo the ) the problem started again and the internet kept on disconnecting. Ive reinstalled Win7 and the problem has appeared again. Once again everything works properly in safe mode. What can i do?
Ive previously installed windows vista to double check if the problem goes but it didnt.

Try plugging in the Ethernet cable direct from the modem to your laptop.

Try playing a game as normal and see if the problem still persists.

Hope this helps.

Im using a computer at the moment, and my ethernet cable IS directly connected to the home hub, Im not using wireless
And ive asked help from BT, they couldnt help, they said they dont know what the problem is and there might be a problem with my network adapter, i doubt that because it works in safe mode, and windows xp worked properly with a proper full boot.

OK, try connecting the Ethernet from your BT Home Hub 2.0 to your laptop and see if it works. Don't use Wi-Fi, test it to see if it works on Local Area Connection.

If it works flawlessly, then there is something wrong with the network adapter in your Computer.

Hope This Helps.

Hmm, checked on DSi and its working properly, seems like it is my network adapter
Can I use this instead to use internet wirelessly on my computer?

Hello there, sorry for the late reply. Yes, you could use a USB Wireless Network Adapter and it should work fine on your computer, it does the same job as wireless, so yes you can use internet wireless like your laptop.

Whats the difference between 150mbps and 300mbps?


Mbps stands for mega-bits per second. If you have 150mbps, the maximum speed of internet it can receive is 150mbps, while if you have a 300mbps, it can receive up to a 300mbps internet connection. The faster card isn't going to necessarily increase your receiving ability, it will just ensure that you will be also to take advantage of those faster routers. Chances are, that public wifi area isn't even over 100mbps but I could be wrong. You should be fine with the 150mbps.

Keep in mind that your wireless reception is based a lot upon line of sight, if there are big bricks or metal buildings in between you and the router, that will kill your reception big time.
