    I would say your problem is your system is grabing as its IP but its also looking for the DNS server and it can not find and/or talk to it due to itself having that IP

    Everything looks good but whats in red. Your router is showing as having an ip of which is fine , but DHCP whis is what you have handing out IP's only shows that it can hand out or

    thats a log from a more recent disconnect

    im thinking i either have a noisey line from BT, ISP is screwing, or my modem is screwing. but ISP is fine, BT checked line and its fine, and my modem is fine cus it was working fine when i wasnt on ADSL

    With DHCP enabled you should pull your IP from the router. So setting the netcard to dynamic should by the looks of your setup give you one of the 2 ips. What happens when you set your Nic to dynamic?

    in the NIC properties, set DHCP for both IP and DNS addresses

    View Network connections, right-click the LAN or Wireless adaptor
    in the scroll list, at the bottom is Tcp/IP. Click on it and then click propertiies

    look im not an *****, its nothing like that.

    it is a wired computer not laptop.

    2007.04.05 13:12:53 **LAND**, 1048->>, 6881 (from ATM Inbound) is a recent message i received, what does that mean?

    Is this a laptop or a desktop? You may want to check and make sure power saving is not shutting off your connection. I had a machine in one of our clinics that was doing that.

    Whould go off line and then have to do a repair or reboot to get it back online. Finally figured it out and shut that off and worked so far.

    Got to love these wierd ones :)

    bump cus i accidentaly edited old post with new info >.<

    clearly you did not understand.

    suggest you take some xanax and relax if you wish to have other assist you.
    EVEN if they are totally out in left field, they took the time to give you some
    insight and assistance.

    it means a program opened port 1048 on your lan and
    sent a message to port 6881 also on your lan where some program was listening
    for messages.

    I suppose you'll take offence to that too! :knock:
  18. Zurles

    Zurles TS Enthusiast Topic Starter Posts: 94

    making out what that message means is hardly common sense, is that a security risk, becuase i have nothing that im aware of that should be doing that.
    my firewall is enabled and only 6112 is forwarded, for battle net

    as to your offence on me, i accidentaly edited the mesage that was originaly there, the original message said "ive enabled dhcp and it works"

    i know how that was done, it didnt change anything, i as just on the DHCP client list and was auto asigned my ip instead of the manual configuration that it was on

    I have seen intermittent connection problems with all kinds of weird symptoms from poorly crimped Ethernet cables. It is so easy to do that you may want to replace the current cable with a known good working one from one of your other machines and see if that solves the problem. It may not be the problem, but it is so fast and easy to do that it is worth trying.

    i tracerouted Bnet, does this show a problem? Tracing route to []

    over a maximum of 30 hops:

    1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms harrison []

    2 25 ms 22 ms 23 ms []

    3 23 ms 24 ms 23 ms []

    4 25 ms 24 ms 23 ms

    5 24 ms 24 ms 25 ms

    what is shown is fine (20-25ms is nice), but let it complete until it
    hits the matching IP address.

    A variation of tracert is pathping with the same parm; it will count lost
    packets at every host :)

    Zurles TS Enthusiast Topic Starter Posts: 94

    i never lose packets or anything like that, it just disconnects and recconects over 3 seconds every few hours, though sometimes it can be every few minutes. and the other computer on the network, which is wireless, doesnt disc

    got one just >.<

    What happens is, im playing wc3, and its all running smoothly connection is stable and i have no problems. but every 1/2 hour or so i get a spike. whereby the screen shortly freezes or jumps indicating network problems. Sometimes these spikes are enough to get me disconected, which means that the information i needed to play must of halted completly, or else i would have just lagged a bit. this happens quite frequently and rarely stops

    does any of this info look wrong?

    Physical Address: 00-20-ED-47-0E-BD
    IP Address:
    Subnet Mask:

    EDIT : i just realised the internet cable that links to my pc is near

    A guitar and amp,
    a power supply for an electronic keyboard,
    and a radiator.

    let me see if removing these will fix it

    2nd EDIT : No i still disconnect... wow...

    3rd EDIT:
    Defect Indication
    Indicator Name Near End Indicator Far End Indicator

    Interleaved Path FEC Correction 19 19
    Fast Path CRC Error 0 24

    thats the defect inormation in a status part of the router, does that show anything odd?

    I know nothing but could your PCI ethernet card be faulty?
  25. stindle

    stindle TS Rookie Posts: 24

    Could be a bad nic, if you have one would be real easy to add the 2nd card and see if you have same problem. Off chance it could be a bad patch cable also, I have seen that happen.
