|Hey guys, I've never posted here before but I've often read around these forums and usually there was an answer here waiting for me so I didn't have to ask... this time I couldn't find anything, so here I go!|
I'm using an ASUS laptop (model M51SN) with an Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet card in it - within the last week, my internet connection has just been dropping out around 5 mins after I turn my computer on; If i restart the PC, I can use the internet for a little while, but then it drops out. I did some more research and i found out that it seems to be when it tries to process alot of data - if I open a youtube site, for example, the internet will cut out immediately. I've been using the laptop happily for about 1 year and a half, so I don't think that it was my current setup. Replacing the drivers has done nothing, nor did a full system scan (AVG).
I've called ASUS and told them the problem, and they've asked me to send the laptop into them - but I'm in Japan at the moment and they will need about a month just to order the replacement part should they consider it needs replacing. However..
When I restarted the computer in safe mode w/ networking, and the internet has no problems. I've performed a full system scan in safe mode, but it came up with nothing.
I'm connected to the network of a college student dormitory, and no one else is having these kinds of problems. In addition, I have checked the cabling to my laptop (no problems), and as I said the internet has no problems during safe mode. I have not altered any settings on the computer recently, and am the only user.
Does anyone have any tips for me? Even recommendations of other programs to give my computer a scan with would really be appreciated.
