Steps I have taken to try and isolate the problem.
1. Isolation test
2. Swapped Routers (I have a brand new one as a spare)
3. Put another new ethernet cable in
4. Put a new telephone line in from Router to the line
5. Flushed the dns
6. Renewed the dns
7. Done a total shutdown, given the PC time to stop.
8. Reported it to my ISP
And yet my Internet keeps dropping out, this been happening more frequently over the past 48 hours.
My connection can last for 2 minutes, 4 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes, and when I am in bed any of the above or for up to a WHOLE hour.
Up until the internet started dropping out on a regular basis, I had changed nothing, (why fix what isn't broken) added no new programmes.
At the moment I am averaging 3 minutes online before being booted off.
I am at a total loss as to why this keeps happening, I have tried everything I know of to rectify the problem.
NB. It is happening all during the day and night, so it has nothing to do with peak hour internet traffic.
The only thing I have yet to try is a reinstall of the ethernet drivers
. That is next on the list.
Any suggestions a fix? Or a cause as to why this keeps happening?
Oh I live in Australia and I believe copper wiring is used for telephone lines here.
