Hey, i have a huge problem on my hand, which dosn't seem to get any brighter at all after all the work i've put into fixing the problem. I am a gamer and i can normally stay online in a game for more than 12 hours a day. But lately these 12 hours have become 20 minutes. Cause every time the DHCP server is contacted to uphold my IP, i dissconnect from the internet for 2-3 seconds. I am directly connected to the modem without any kind of router (believe me i've tried several routers and it's still the same thing). This have been going on for more than a month now. And i dont trust the competense at the provider at all... I've been trying to manually hold up my internet connection to avoid the dc's by writhing, "ipconfig /all" to see how much time i have left on my lease times, and a few minutes before the lease time ends written "ipconfig /renew" to release time... but god i'm sick of doing that. Does someone know a better way, or "maybe" what the REAL problem is here? I dunno what kind of modem i have, but the trademark is ZyXEL, and it's not more than a year old. Please help me, or at least comfort me!
