|The first thing you should do is check to ensure you have the most recent firmware on your router. If you don't, download and install the most recent and see if the issue goes away.|
If it doesn't, check to ensure you have the most recent drivers for the network interface on your computer. If you don't, again, download/install and test.
If the above doesn't fix the issue, try resetting the TCP/IP stack.
To reset your TCP/IP stack first open a command prompt window (ie: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter) and perform the following command:
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Note If you do not want to specify a directory path for the log file, use the following command:
netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
Then reboot the computer.
If none of the above fixes the issue the only other things I can think of to ask are:
- Is the client this is happening to connecting via a wired connnection, or via wireless?
- does this happen to all comptuers in your LAN, or just this one? If that's the only computer you have, get a friend to bring a laptop over and connect it and see if it happens to their computer
- can you borrow a router from a friend to use test and see if your router is the issue?
Report back with any findings.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
