'Repair' Button in Advanced Connection

In reply to: Connectivity Problem Help Please!!!

did you try using the 'repair' feature when u click the lan connection icon in the taskbar. it could be due to the lease time 'expiration' period which might be set to like 20 mins or so.

try using the 'repair' button when ur connection goes dead (u arent able to open webpage) and see if it solves the problem.
otherwise u can uninstall sp2 and it would solve the prob.

Uninstall SP2, then run anti-virus and adware and malware scans, it may be that somthing was left on your disk when you installed SP2.

The adware and malware scans can be (and should be really) done in Safe Mode, you could also try loading Ewido as a temporary measure, run that in safe mode as well.

Re-load SP2, you should find the system works OK now.

The Connection I'm using is dialup (Modem).
i tried to flush the dns and it did not resolve the Problem.

Have you checked

the "Idle time before hang-up" in the DUN (Dial-up network) Properties?

If it is set to anything other than "Never", the connnection will close if no data is received or sent for that amount of time.
