Hello, I have been having a problem for a while now that i did not understand. I notice it mostly in a certain game i play, runescape. however it happens everywhere. Every so often(i would estimate every few hours) my internet connection appears to be disconnecting, yet i am still able to receive information.

what i mean is, i can read any chat that is happening and my character will still be attacked and i am unable to respond. i am essentially logged into the game, able to see everything that is happening, but i cannot make any actions. i have tested this before with a friend and he was chatting to me in real time as this disconnection was happening, so i know it is not lag. this tends to last for anywhere from 1-5 minutes before it stops and i can use the internet again without interruption.

it is not just happening on runescape, and is not just happening on java based games. i just used it as an example to try to illustrate what the problem is.

i have looked around on the internet for an answer, but the few people i found with a similar problem did not get an answer. does anyone know what this problem is and how i can fix it? i am assuming it is some sort of interference problem, i just do not have any idea what it could be.

thank you if you can help.
