connection hicups

Guest

i'm having trouble with my connection. it seems to consistantly drop all
packets and temporarily kill the connection for a second then reestablishes.
This happens every 30 seconds to 5 minutes on average. i'm using a dlink
router DI-604 and modem. Ive had this connection before without this problem
before i moved to a new house.

what could the problem be? any help would be majorly appreciated.

if you use a router and modem make sure correct power cords are plugged in
correctly. I also moved and mixed up the power cords for the 2 and had
connection probs. put them in the other way and worked fine. but

now.....
same problem, still get connection but signal seems degraded somehow, web
pages load but slower at times,
messenger programs connect but chat shows less people in room when there
should be 30 only shows 1 or 2, online games connect to servers but get
connection problems messages. all used to work fine a day or 2 ago but now
constant dropped connections every few minutes, ran several virus/spyware
scans with nothing found.

it's possible. i checked the power cords on the router and modem. the router
is 5V==2A and the modem is 7.5v 1.5A so the cords can't be switched. But I
have another modem. i'm going to try switching the router and see if it holds
out. thanks

nope, still getting the same thing. router logs still reads it
is dropping the packets.
router messages in the logs read "Drop UDP packet from WAN" and "Drop TCP
packet from WAN"
damn this is hell.

well it seems with my online ventures I've noticed alot of servers are
experiencing some problems as of late, like game servers, yahoo chat, winamp
shoutcast radio and tv to name a few so maybe, just maybe could have nothing
to do with your end at all, could be some kind internet server problem going
on here. good luck!

The problem could be in the:
# Computer.
# Ethernet cable between computer and router.
# DI-604
# Ethernet cable between router and modem.
# Modem.
# Phone cable / local loop.
# Anywhere on the Internet.

Try to isolate the problem. Get Ping Plotter, and find out where the connection
is being lost (and objectively identify WHEN the connection is being lost).

I downloaded this pingplotter. neat program. the pings never went beyond 100.
so no yellow or red indication. it did however list something as "ERR"
instead of a ping.

I don't know for sure what that means. It's the computer? most likely
windows? But i have no idea what the problem is with windows.

OK, look at where the high pings start. At the router? At your ISPs gateway?
At a distant server? What target IP address are you pinging? Make it one on
the Internet, outside your LAN. Remember PP shows you the pings for each hop
between you and the target.
