    I dunno what the hell is wrong with my internet...

    ISP: Comcast Cable
    Runs through two routers...

    This started after I had to restore factory settings to my windows drive

    What's happening is, my internet stays on for 20 minutes, at max, and disconnects for about 20 seconds....and then reconnects, disconnects, etc...

    I checked another computer downstairs (running through the same two routers) and it doesn't do this...

    So, it must have something to do with my computer. I don't know if it's:
    XP Home
    Norton Internet Security
    Intel Motherboard

    whatever it is, it's pissing me off...I'll be talking on AIM and my messages won't go through, or all the messages someone else has sent me come in at once...


    please help me :sadwavey:

    first thing i'de suggest is make sure you got all the latest windows/nic/mobo drivers

    then i'de just try a different nic card. They are a dime a dozen and can sometimes just be little biatches.

    Hard to say, could be anything. It doesn't seem like a factory restore would have Internet issues right out of the box. Does the computer downstairs have Norton Internet Security as well? I've heard some people give it meh-ish reviews. Same old same old for tech support -- make sure all cards / hardware plugged in securely, try switching ethernet cables, try switching routers, etc. etc. etc.
