Specs: Windows 7, 2.40 GHz / 3gigs
Hi.
Some day, then my internet jut died. then I got the router restarted(unplugged the electricity and plugged it back in) and it worked for like a day and then it died again. I restarted the router again Internet worked and then some hours later it died again.
This problem only happens to me and not anyone else in the house.
I'm connected from my pc with and ethernet cable to a switch/HUB where it's then connected to the router.
I believe that the error must be on my PC. but I cannot find it.

Please help someone. This problem has been going on for a weeks now.

Do any of the other PCs use that switch too> If not, connect your PC directly to the router. Also, look at the event viewer for errors.

Yes. 2 other PC's use the same switch. and it is not possible to connect my pc directly to the router because of the distance to it.
My PC is in the basement and so is 2 other PC's which is connected to the switch that then has a cable running through the walls up to the first floor where the router is allocated

I also mentioned the event viewer. Did you look at that? Open the device manager as well. Make sure there are no red or yellow marks near the adapters.

Under device manager everything is fine ;) no red or yellow marks.

under event viewer>window logs>system
this error pops up now and then
description:

The processing of Group Policy failed because of lack of network connectivity to a domain controller. This may be a transient condition. A success message would be generated once the machine gets connected to the domain controller and Group Policy has succesfully processed. If you do not see a success message for several hours, then contact your administrator

and this one came once today: NETLOGON
This computer was not able to set up a secure session with a domain controller in domain (my domain name. just hiding it) due to the following:
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.
This may lead to authentication problems. Make sure that this computer is connected to the network. If the problem persists, please contact your domain administrator.

ADDITIONAL INFO
If this computer is a domain controller for the specified domain, it sets up the secure session to the primary domain controller emulator in the specified domain. Otherwise, this computer sets up the secure session to any domain controller in the specified domain.


after this error I got the router rebooted
then under
"Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings"
I had everything set to "on" I saw on another pc that it was set to off so I did the same. The internet is working now. But I don't know for how long.

This could be a network interface issue. Check to see if you have the most recent drivers available for the network interface on your compute. If not, install them.

If that doesn't fix the issue, or you had the most recent to begin with, the next thing to try would be resetting your computer's TCP/IP stack.

To reset your TCP/IP stack first o pen 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 that doesn't do the trick either, my last ditch suggestion would be to go into Device Manager and uninstall the interface, reboot and let Windows "find" and install the interface and again, ensure it has the most recent drivers.

If none of the above fixes your issue, you may have a bad interface.

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.

First thing to try is swapping the cables from your system to one of the other systems and see if the other one also has this issue. If so, then it's the cable.

Next time it dies try pinging your default gateway. If that works try pinging 4.2.2.1, if that works try pinging google.com. Post back the results of each.

Also, what is the lease time for the DHCP server on the router set to?

Post the output of ipconfig /all.

Don't tell us what you changes! Why would we want to know that?
