Puzzled Not reconnecting to internet

Q: Puzzled Not reconnecting to internet

Preferred Solution: Puzzled Not reconnecting to internet

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Puzzled Not reconnecting to internet

First- have you set up a connection with the conection wizard? If not- go to Start>Control Panel>NEtwork and Internet Connections> and then click on "Set up or change your internet connection" Follow the prompts.

If still no connection:

Did the drivers install for the ethernet card? To check go to My Computer and right click on it and choose Manage. Then click on Device Manager. Look at your Network Adapters. If there is a yellow question mark there- then it may be that it did not load the drivers for it.

That is a good start to find out what is happening. Post back with results.

Well as of yesterday my wireless internet connection will randomly disconect itself from it's default wireless network and then reconenct itself immediatly. Now this isn't much of a problem except for the occaisonal webpages I need to refresh, but when I try to download a file and the internet reconnects itself it can be quite annoying, same with playing online games.

I'm not quite sure why it began to do this or how to fix it, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

(sorry if this is a really stupid question)

A:Internet keeps reconnecting on it's own

Not a stupid question. Most likely problem with your wireless being intermittently disconnected is interference. Things that can cause interference would be: cordless phones, microwave ovens, other wireless networks in the area (like neighbors). Is yours the only wireless computer using your Internet connection? If not, do the others experience similar problems?

So starting yesterday my internet just decides to reconnect every 20-30 min. This is very agrovating while im trying to online game because i keep getting droppd. I called the cable internet company and they were helping until i told them i had a router, "oh, its probably the router, we cant help you, try them and thank you for calling" *click* they didnt even say anything, it was more like they were wanting a quick way out.

Either way, this problem affects multiple computers at once and is getting very annoying. If anyone can shed some light thatd b AMAZING! thank you in advance

So, I got a new internet service provider a few week ago, now I am having issues with my internet. What happens is every random minutes or so, my internet for my pc, keeps disconnecting me from the internet then a few seconds later, it connects me again. This is very annoying when I am gaming, if anyone could help me please! I want to get this problem over with. I already tried deleting my network adapter and that didn't do anything, and I also restarted my router, which didn't do anything either. I connect to my internet with an Ethernet cable (wired), this doesn't seem to be happening to the wifi and I don't notice any lights from router/modem.

A:Internet keeps disconnecting and reconnecting

I would uninstall the ethernet/NIC driver and then reboot and reinstall same...the current installed driver may be damaged.
Have you contacted your ISP, since you seem to indicate that troubles began with the change?

are the drivers installed for the ethernet card?
Relevancy 54.61%

Hey there!

my internet keeps disconnecting and then reconnecting after for some reason. I am using wifi on my computer to connect to the internet and every other computer in the house uses same thing and works fine. But my computer keeps disconnecting and then reconnecting to internet for some reason. It just started a couple days ago. Sometimes it goes a couple minutes before disconnecting and sometimes it disconnects after a couple hours but it keeps doing it and is really annoying.

Is there any way I can fix this problem?


A:Internet keeps disconnecting and ten reconnecting

The first thing I would do is run to the manufacturer's website for your wireless device
then download and reinstall the latest version of the driver/software they have.
It's possible that alone could fix the problem.

I would also look at power options to make sure nothing related to connection is set to disable/reduce power EVER.

Hey guys I have this problem with my wifi internet.
It works fine for about 3 minutes, then drops a few bars in connectivity for about 20s, then fully disconnects before reconnecting in around one minutes time. This pattern keeps on repeating. The internet wifi on my phone and my girlfriend's laptop works completely fine. This started happening around 2 weeks ago and has been very frustrating. The two months before that, (when I moved into this house) there were no problems with the internet.
The internet is stable in Safe Mode with Networking, thats why I think there is something wrong/
I have scanned with malwarebytes full scan coming up with 0 results. Clean booting doesn't seem to fix it either.
I am using Windows 7.
Thanks in Advance.

Oddly, in this "always connected" world, I am trying to do just the opposite. I am trying to create a quick shortcut, or method, to disable both the LAN and WiFi connections on a Windows 7 home premium computer.

Maybe there is some script, batch-file, or registry tweak that can be used. Any one have a way to accomplish this.

My computer at work (church office) was attacked by a computer virus last week. Of course, my antivirus software was shut down. I used the link on your site to clean up the files. I have my McAfee antivirus software back up and going. Only problem is I can't get the computer back online (hooked to the internet). We have wireless laptops on the network and they connect, but with the virus attack and then cleanup I'm thinking some of the settings changed or something. When I open IE or Firefox it gives me a message something about the Proxy Server. I would appreciate any help on how to get it back online.

Thanks so much!!

A:Reconnecting to internet after virus attack

Malware may install a proxy server, changing your browser settings and screwing up your ability to connect to sites.

With IE open...Tools/Internet Options...Connections tab.

Click LAN Settings button...clear everything and click OK. See if that helps.

If so, make the same type of check in Firefox.

I came in today to a down network. Everything's been fine for years. I have tried several things, and where I am at now is: I have the cable modem working, the router is working. I can get on the internet using the wireless on my laptop, and a wired cable connection on my desktop. I have connected one switch which has about 12 of its 24 ports connected to computers. I can still get on the internet. However, when I connect another switch of 24 ports, I lose all internet. I have two more switches to connect. There is obviously something wrong there. Does anyone have any idea of what I should be looking for? Or do I just have to disconnect all and reconnect one port at a time?

Thank you,

A:Reconnecting a switch knocks out my internet

Well, I'd start by checking that switch you're connecting! Either it's bad, or perhaps you have created a loop by connecting multiple ports between two switches.

For the past 4 days my internet would disconnect and reconnect frequently. It would sometimes d/c for around 4 secs and sometimes for around 20. When this does happen, the lights on my router (linksys befsr41) would sort of freeze, and the lights on my modem would act as if i restarted the modem. I tried restarting the modem by unplugging it for 30 secs, same with the router. This happens randomly, while browsing the internet, playing an online game, using an instant messenger, in ventrillo.

I called Comcast and they said it has nothing to do with an outage within the area, but a technician is comming here on Friday.

I am having problems with my wifi connection, it has been going on for a while now, i got it fixed by a computer guy but then i had to reset my entire computer and now my internet will stay on for about a minute or two and then disconnect again and so on but after a certain period of time (2-3 hrs usually) it will stay connected until my computer gets shut down.. I am on an Acer Aspire 5315-2822 i have disconnected the "acer empowering technology" and i know that has nothing to do with the problem because it was always disconnected when my internet ran steady.

Welcome to TSG:
When you say "reset my computer",what does that mean? A re-install of the operating system ?
Perhaps interference from one of the surrounding nets.

My first visit to the site and hopefully someone can be of assistance.

I'd been hit with several Trojan viruses and numerous Tracking and Adware viruses - to the point where my PC kept crashing. I rebooted using the PC manufacturers CD Recovery disc (Fujitsu Seimens) but this has meant I don't have access to the Internet home page I once had (Google).

I'm using my wife's laptop (she still has Internet access thanks to a wireless router) to seek help.

{run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector} Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Then run the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

Basically, my wireless internet has been disconnecting then reconnecting on weekends up to 50+ times a day. The weekend also seems to be the time when I have 10+ wireless connections in range. Can that be the cause of it? I have tried changing my router channels but to no avail. Thank you.

Ok so my internet connection has recently started disconnecting and reconnecting every 5 mins or so. It has never done this before and has started doing it out of the blue. It doesn't even appear to have cut out by the icon at the bottom but it does stuff like stop youtube videos from loading or when I am playing online poker or online gaming it will cut out for about 30 seconds before reconnecting again. It is quite frustrating and I am yet to have found any help anywhere online so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I was merrily surfing along going about my business when I suddenly discovered that my Data Partition had disappeared. It was completely gone - no trace of it in Computer or Disk Management. The system had just added it to the freespace that is adjacent to it. I keep that freespace in case I need another partition, but have not touched it in eons.

That partition is shared between my Win7 and Vista. Earlier I had worked on Vista - just running the updates for the system and AV. I wonder whether that has something to do with it. But I do that often and it never happened before.

It was no big deal to recover my data from the latest image (hail imaging), but it just puzzles me how that could happen. Can anybody provide a clue?

A:I am puzzled

I think this may be the nature of the beast with multiple OS's and partitions, I've had the problem before and after doing a Recover it has never happened again.

A:HJT log - this one has me puzzled

anyone?===========Hello While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.Please be patient. It may take several days, up to more than a week, perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.Thank you for understanding.Elise - forum moderator

Another option is in command type msconfig then look in startup and see if you have unnecessary programs trying to start up!

Everynow and then a little box with a windows icon appears on my desktop, it has a squiggle underneath it but no name or extension. When I go to open it I get a box asking me what to open it with, I usually try wordpad or note pad but only get a set of hieroglyphics. Can anyone tell me what all this means and what I should do about it. I think it may sometimes be an attachment from an email which I have saved on the desktop but why wouldn't it have a name?

my anti virus showed this: $RDZZJ43.exe downloaded 2 times yesterday and i can't find it anywhere on my computer. a site i visit flagged me for a CSRF? attack. ran a scan and came back clean. NVM, my anti virus provider put that exe out with an update they did.


From the Web:
Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) is a type of attack that occurs when a malicious Web site, email, blog, instant message, or program causes a user's Web browser to perform an unwanted action on a trusted site for which the user is currently authenticated.
The impact of a successful cross-site request forgery attack is limited to the capabilities exposed by the vulnerable application. For example, this attack could result in a transfer of funds, changing a password, or purchasing an item in the user's context. In effect, CSRF attacks are used by an attacker to make a target system perform a function (funds Transfer, form submission etc.) via the target's browser without knowledge of the target user, at least until the unauthorized function has been committed.

Hi All,
I received one of those virus alerts and I don't usually act on them but I was checking it out and was puzzled about something. I was instructed to search for jdbgmgr.exe on my hard drives and I found one but it was not the exact file.
Why wouldn't it find the exact file? It found several files but none are the one that I was searching for. I have Norton but the instructions say that Norton cannot find this virus.
Any answers?????

I am having trouble moving files. Specifically, transferring data from one program to another, such as trade history from TDAmeritrade to Tradelog or Gainskeeper. I am not too computer sauvy.


Normally, you have to export the data from one application and import it to the other. Obviously, that only works if they're capable of creating compatible data.

I noticed this program as well and suspect that it has something to do with the sandisk usb drives that use a U3 Launchpad program.

Not sure if it is of much help though. There were a few other things about keylogging etc but no clear answers.

The present symptoms are as follows at restart (machine is on all the time) yellow disk power light stays on and there is no video output, flashing power light on the monitor.Floppy and cd-rom not available. This started out as every now and again but is now almost every time I reboot machine also cooling down periods are getting longer. My partial solution was to use a 12"fan to cool down quickly, I have also fitted a rear fan and a drive 0 cooler unit. This is giving me 30c plus temps on both drives and 36c on CPU and it occasionally reboots OK but is now not rebooting after several hours!

Alright, I built a computer a couple years ago, and purchased an 80gig harddrive

First OS was Win98, I didn't understand the concept of partitioning back then, and it defaulted my Hard drive to 32gigs on the C drive , the rest seems to be gone. (currently using Windows XP pro, and the demo version of Partition magic says there's only 7mb not partitioned)

I don't know how to cleanslate my computer and repartition. (I have a Windows XP pro upgrade cd).

I was wondering if this scenario has ever been encountered before? and what steps I should take to get my Hard drive up to full 80gig potential.

any help would be GREATLY appreciated, thank you


A:Puzzled about Partitions

I ran into partitioning questions a few days ago and the solution was much easier that I had ever thought.

Look here

I have never used Partition magic, always Fdisk prioor to this. XP makes it so simple you will be surprised.

You may have had some left over space that was not allocated and unless you format it you won't be able to use it.

If you boot to your win xp CD by changing the boot sequence in your bios, follow the short list of instrutions in that link, it may show you the 7 gigs I'm not sure though.

So far, I have only used this utility starting with a brand new unformated hard drive.

A:Puzzled over two different outcomes

Well the way it works is youtube uses a web player like flash player that reads the diffrent video formats. If you uploaded a video that is wmv, avi, and mp4. It is still played in flash player or html5 player, depending on what the video format and if you have the right codec installed realplayer will try to play the video. Try uninstalling the plugin under crome and reinstall and see if it works.

I use Acronis True Image Home 11 for backups, and I have found it very easy to use. I only do full image backups(large because of audio files) and my backup location is an external 250 GB hard disc. When I open Backup location on the HD, I find a long list of about 16 files for each backup. Why is this, and why is it that when I want to mount an image I only have to open one of these files. There is obviously something about external hard discs that I do not understand. Allan.

A:Puzzled By External HD files.

It depends what file system your external hard drive uses. FAT32 has a limit on the maximum file size, so a large image would be split across multiple files. Acronis may split the image even if the file system supports a single large file for compatibility reasons.

I remapped it under my user, then switched to hers and it was removed from both. Tried deleting and reestablishing both network and homegroup with no success.

Many years ago and O/S curious Puzzled Windows - I was an Atari user hooked up to a HD Windows O/S - Puzzled and curious If when the OS crashed I never had to reinstall all the software back onto the machine because GEM-TOS held this stuff in a separate folder outside the OS Now this sounds to me an extremely logical way of working and with the vast amounts of memory and computing speed of Windows O/S - Puzzled and curious modern PCs I just cannot understand and am puzzled why MS Windows doesn't hasn't implemented the same principle After all it's only going to take a few nanoseconds to read data held in a folder outside the OS instead of burying 'bits' of Apps deep inside the OS Is there a logical reason why MS cannot or don't want to do the same thing Just think of the hours of misery users would no longer be subjected to if you could reinstall windows without having to also reinstall all their software again I'm wondering if there is a patent copywrite on this type of configuration which prevents them from implementing something like this If the Windows OS installed the data other Apps need to put inside the OS and also saved a copy of it in another folder OUTSIDE the OS when you have to reinstall the OS the install process could read the contents of this file and put this stuff back into the OS when you reinstall Windows Why not employ a 'plug-in' system similar to what Adobe uses on many of their products

A:Windows O/S - Puzzled and curious


As first response: -

Windows "Incorporates software" into the system & therefore does not work in the same way. Most of the software from back then was "Stand alone" in configuration & even ran from floppy disks.

Any thoughts?

My home network set up is:

- 1 PC running XP Home and wired to Netgear DG834G wireless router
- 1 Laptop running 98SE connecting wirelessly to the router
- 1 PC running 98SE connecting wirelessly to the router

All are running the latest version of Internet Explorer and both the wireless computers show excellent connection with the router ? approx 80-90%.

The laptop has no problem accessing the net via Internet Explorer but it will only rarely work for the PC ? I?ll try a couple of times a day and maybe once a week it will actually work?.

I?ve tried checking everything I can think of (including firewall settings) but to no avail? it would make more sense to me if the PC never connected at all!!

Does anyone have any ideas please?

Hi, I am puzzled over the connectivity of my ethernet cable. I wonder if anyone faced this problem before and have any solution.

1 Ethernet cable
1 Notebook
1 desktop PC

I was trying to get my desktop PC connected to a network but failed. I have no problem connecting my notebook to the network using the same LAN cable nor do I have problem connecting my desktop PC to the network using another LAN cable. What went wrong?

i cant determine what is the issue with my computer but its just not right, recently ive been having a lot of crashes from NTFS 36 in the last 7 days apparently logs report, also HPTTEvent has been crashing alot in last few days,

and not to long ago when scanning with GMER for rootkits my computer blue screened also i accessed eventvwr to view recent errors(gmer was scanning still), NTFS had 7 in last hour but computer did not crash UNTIL i had viewed this so confused >.<

was able to complete a gmer scan finally (safe mode everything enabled only worked that way)

hope some one can help me i can already tell though i know the answer will be format HDD and re install windows >.< but that's okay.

I have 2 HDDs and 1 SSD.

On HDD Disk0 I have Vista which is an active partition (F)
On SSD Disk2 I have Windows7 which is an active partition (C). Win7 was installed with the HDDs unplugged.
On HDD Disk1 I have 2 data partitions. One for Videos (D) and one for Macrium Images (P).

Yesterday I discovered by accident that this Image partition (P) is active. So I cranked up my trusted Partition Wizard and made it inactive. This morning my system would not boot any more. So this time I used my bootable Partition Wizard CD and changed it back to active. After that the system booted as usual.

Would anybody have an idea why a data partition would be set to active and why the system would depend on such a data partition to boot. I am completely puzzled.

Note that I have never used Disk1 for any system installation. It has always been a data disk.

A:Now I am really puzzled - mystery active partition

Try searching that disk, you might find windows installation files in it. I know when win 7 is installed it puts files on another logical drive but it usually creates a 100mb partition of its own.

I don't know exactly why it has put the files there but one of my machines has done the same thing and put the boot files in a data pattition.

A fix? I'm not sure, whith that machine I will wait until I need to re-install windows, remove all other drives until installed, back up data from the other drive and then Kill Disk it and put the data back.

It hasn't caused me any problems having the boot files, you might find that is what has happened, just at a guess.

Appreciate your thoughts on this.

Scenario: two computers of the same kind, running W98.

Looking in Device Manager at System Devices, the breakdown is as follows:

Machine A:
Intel 82801AA LPC Int. Controller
Intel 82801AA PCI Bridge
Intel SMBus Controller
PCI Standard Host CPU Bridge
PCI Standard PCI to PCI Bridge
(HD controller: Intel 82801AA Bus Master IDE Controller)

Machine B:
Intel 82801AA LPC Int. Controller
Intel 82801AA PCI Bridge
Intel SMBus Controller
82802 Firmware Hub Device
82815 Processor to AGP Controller - 1131
82815 Processor to I/O Controller - 1130
(HD Controller: Intel 82801AA Ultra ATA Controller)

Both have the Intel 82801AA chipset. Why would the controller on one be Intel 82801AA Ultra ATA , and the other Intel 82801AA
Bus Master IDE??

Thanks for your help.

I had a similar problem, and in my case it was the switch on the monitor. However, I feel that this is unlikely in your case. I would sooner suspect a loose connection where the monitor cable plugs into the video card, or possibly the card itself not being properly seated in its slot...

I have followed numerous troubleshooters and am still unable to install it. I am able to download the file, run it,then i always get a box stating that shockwave need to close open browsers even though i think i have closed them all, when asked to choose the language for installation i click the top choice-American,English option,shockwave starts to install and just stops dead on 1% installed. I am running a rather tired windows 98se but i am having no other real problems with anything in particular, apart from being overloaded and a bit slow and i really am very puzzled . Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Matrixfan

7.5 gigs for a single file or archive seems absolutely ludicrous, even moreso when I don't know what it DOES... I have Norton System Works installed, though I have little experience on how to fine-tune it, and my best guess is that this monster of a file is some sort of Norton GoBack restore log with a crapload of useless data in it.
Does anybody know what that gobackio.bin thing actually is and how can I safely delete/edit/modify the file to get my disk space back? Is it as I suspect a GoBack settings issue, and if so, how can I optimize the settings and free the 7 gigs?

Many thanks. Viktor.

A:Puzzled... 7.5 gigs used in a single gobackio.bin file.

The file belongs Norton's GoBack software and contains History data in the event you wish to roll back to a previous date/time.

A:Puzzled by games crashing when using second gfx card for PhysX

does your motherboard support SLI, and are you installing the graphics cards in the right slots x16/x16 (see mb manual)? Have you downloaded and installed the most recent graphics card driver for your 460, and does it support the other card as well in the list of supported cards? Do both cards support physx? Have you gone into the Nvidia control panel and specifically set the correct card as physx?

I would guess your motherboard needed to support SLI before you could have Physx. I may be wrong, but it sure doesn't hurt.

Browsing the internet yesterday and had a virus, got AVG to scan selected areas, virus moved to virus vault. Deleted virus files from temp internet.

Also for the time I can log on which isn't very long I cannot access task manager, it says I am not the Administrator then get a bunch of errors:

I think the restrictions are the fault of the virus.
