well, im not much of a computer genius and im sorry if i placed this topic in the wrong forum section. my internet keeps disconnecting from time to time, when it happens its both on my pc and my brother's laptop where mine is wired connected and hes wireless. sometimes it takes a while for the internet to come back sometimes just 1min. my setup is a ADSL router cable to the jack from the wall. i tried putting my ISP's DNS in the IPv4 thing in the network adapters, i also did a dns flush, ran a full antivirus scan and registry scan with no fix to this. when it happens i run troubleshoot and get a DNS not responding result, sometimes i press it again and it shows that there is no issue and thus i know my internet is back. when it happens a yellow exclamation mark appears on my network icon saying no internet access. i also have 2 routers and the issue is happening on both, one is a buffalo and the other is a linksys cisco.
me and my brother are both using windows 7, mine is home premium. my network adapter is realtek PCIe GBE family controller.
this has been happening for more than a month and i cant enjoy any online gaming with this constant disconnecting.
tried contacting my ISP, they told me to remove my splitter and directly plug the cable to the router which i did, with no result. they'd tell me to take the router to be reprogrammed at their branch etc which i did and still the problem presists. do i need to change my ISP or could be a problem with underground cables in my region? im currently living in an apartment if it matters somehow.
if you need any additional information please ask with the method for me to gain it as i might not know the method.
