Hello,
I have a Toshiba laptop with Windows 7. I have started to lose Internet connectivity almost continually - some days worse than others. I have to disconnect and reconnect. Is this something you can help with? Thanks so much!

Good afternoon, jdklscott :thumbsup:

Check the lights on your modem. All lights are on, when you lose connectivity? If not, what name is on top of those that are inactive?

You know how many of your default gateway? If unsure, go to start, type cmd and press enter. Type ipconfig and press enter. There inform.

Take that number, type in the browser and press enter. Try to see the detailed status of the connection. If you do not know how, take a screenshot of it appeared that I will guide you.

If you do not know how to take a print screen, press the "print screen" / "prt scr" on your laptop, open the paint, press simultaneously ctrl + v (paste),save and attach the image, simply answer the topic by the Full Editor.

I'm waiting. Hugs. :popcorn:

This information was not what I expected.

Really need the Print Screen.

Let's make things easier then.
Download Gadwin PrintScreen, install, and run it. (If you do not open automatically, look between the icons on the clock, and if not found, click on the arrow that appears up to the camera icon. Then just double-click the icon above).

Under Source, click Rectangular Area. And Image, choose JPEG as the type of image. Minimize the program, press the "print screen / prt scr" key on your keyboard, select the desired area and select the destination for the image.

Save and attach in your next reply.

I'm sorry for the delayed reply... I was not sure how to read the default gateway - the only thing I saw on this screen was two colons (::) next to "Default Gateway:"

This site would not let me attach the screen print in paint - I got the error "file to large" or something similar. So I copied and pasted the reslt of the ipconfig command below.

Thanks so much for your help!
Dawn

Just going to throw in a few ideas that popped to mind, too.

  • Are you using security for the wireless connection?
  • If you are using security, Can you try turning it off for troubleshooting purposes?
  • What is your signal strength like on your laptop?

Regards,
Olrik
