Having to repair connection often, too....

I have the same problem as you do.
My configuration is a bit different, but this could help us to track down the problem.

Symtoms:

every time I reboot, I have to do a repair connection or I cannot access the web.
I don't seem to have this problem at another location.

Configuration:
Laptop, Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo 1425
Windows XP Home SP2
Provider Skynet ADSL
All connection ADSL, Wireless, Wired, go through DSL-G604T D-Link Wireless ADSL Router. (currently only 1 computer connected and 1 HP 2610 Printer)
I have all windows updates
Norton Systemworks 2005
Windows XP Firewall off
Zonealarm ON.

Maybe someone can help, anyway if I have more news I,ll poste it!

I have similar problem

Yes I have to repair my INTERNET connection when I start windows. In addition, I must occasionally repair INTERNET while online. It seems that after 4-8 minutes my INTERNET loses connection. Its most frustration trying to play online games as I get disconnected as soon as I am able to get into server.

Two weeks ago while half asleep, I came across a Microsoft patch for this very problem. I downloaded it and must have deleted it prior to installing.

Every time i boot my desktop it says "wireless conection 2 has limited or no connectivity" and displays the yellow warning triangle over the connection.

Repair my connection to access the internet.

It sound like all of you have DSL problems. I would check with my DSL provider for a solution. I seem to recall that windows xp had a patch for SBC DSL.

I've got the same problem...
by effedup / July 10, 2005 12:10 AM PDT

but I'm using Charter Digital Pipeline Cable Modem. The speeds are all good (3 megs down, 512k up) but I lose the internet connection every other day for no reason I can figure out. Could this be a firewall issue of something? I'm running Norton Systemworks 2004 and Norton Antivirus 2004, windows firewall is disabled since Norton is running, and all windows and norton updates are current. Any thoughts?

oh yeah...

How do you disable the balloons that pop up and tell you the signal strength? For some reason my computer likes to tell me over and over again that my signal strength is "excellent", and it never changes. Except for when it goes dead Sad

Here's a solution you could try.

I had the same problem with my Verizon DSL a couple months back. I would click repair over and over. This didn't even work half the time either.

I tried two things that worked great. First, I wiped every network connection and started over. I had one for the DSL and one from using a crossover cable to connect a couple old notebooks I've sold to people to use as fuel management systems. After that, I took a look at my 5 year old DSL box and decided to get a replacement for it. Verizon sent one out without a problem, and since doing both of those at once, not a single problem has come up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

broken internet connection

Hi,

Have you tried getting into your router config. setup?
I had a similar problem, and came across an article (Netgear router) about troubleshooting the MTU. I know in Netgear you have to scroll down to WAN setup...
there you'll find a box with MTU, for most comps. the value should read 1500. So it stands to reason other routers might have a similar setup...Worth a shot.

I have changed the MTU value from 1492 to 1500, should this make muh difference?

What does this do anyway?

Thanks

In reply to: check out this

Thanks for that very good explanation.

I believe that the MTU is not a problem on my comp or my router but thanks anyway.

Anyone else have any help for me?

Here is my problem:

I have a wireless adsl router with a laptop and a desktop both wirelessly connected.I have no problems woth the laptop but i do with the desktop. Every time i boot my desktop it says "wireless conection 2 has limited or no connectivity" and displays the yellow warning triangle over the connection. I have to right click the connection and click repair every time to access the internet.

Anyone have any ideas please.

Things that worked for me

I had this problem till about two days ago. Turns out that my wireless card kept trying to log into an unsecured network in my building that was called ''default'' by its owner. I deleted it from my list of networks so the only network the wireless now attmepts to log into is mine. No problems since then.

Other things I did previously that might help:
- I changed the SSID broadcast name for my network to something unique (you do this in your router's config utility)
- I'm also using WPA security on the network and software firewalls on each computer (not the XP firewall)
