it seems to happen with every game (although ive only played steam games) and when it disconnects i am not connected to anything at all, my aim, firefox and game all freeze up. It it only momentary though only lasts about 10 seconds...


side not: is there a way to check my network activity over a period of time?? and also is there a way to chck if it disconnects the LAN too?? if so then i could narrow it down and rule out both problems with the modem, the internet connection and the isp.

Try this http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsock...sockxpfix.html

You may also try switching out your ethernet cable and adapter for known working one. I'll see what else I can come up with, as of now that's what I want you to try.

There should be a LAN setting to enable or disable DHCP in your router.
