Hello Everyone,

Everytime I try to play a internet video clip or playing online games, I get disconnected and try to the repair option and cannot renew IP address. I tested the network and failed on DHCPServer and DNSServerSearchOrder.

What should i do?

Hi Pat,

I tested the network and failed on DHCPServer and DNSServerSearchOrder.

Could you please post that information?

Please goto Start --> Run --> Type EVENTVWR and press OK --> Now, look under the System Logs for any Errors or Warnings --> if you have the following error -- TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts. --
then please download this Patcher (the english version; top link). Run it (choose to increase the limit to 50). Then restart your computer. Test your connection.

Also, please post any other errors/warnings you may recieve in the System log.

Please open the TCPIP error by double clicking on it -- is the error message within the same as the message I posted above? If so, please run the aforementioned patcher.

Pat,
What happens when you plug your computer directly into the modem and browse? Do you still get disconnected?

Pat,
When you're playing a game, and you lose connectivity, can you regain a connection by going to Start --> Run --> type CMD --> press OK. Now type:
  • ipconfig /release -- wait for the connection to release; then
  • ipconfig /renew -- wait for the connection to re-establish, or alternatively for an error message to display -- if it is an error message, please post the message.

As I tried to play a game online I lost my connectivity. After I released it, I then renew but an error occurred:

Windows IP Configuration

An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection 1 : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.

Pat,

First of all, try updating your modems firmware.

Secondly, try setting up a static IP -- do you know how to?
