Boot up any current Live Linux on USB and run for time. If it stops, it could be your PC.
I'm going to start with the most common things I try after the test.
1. Be sure the date and time is for my zone in both router and PC.
2. Try another DNS (google, how do I use the google DNS?)
For the last 2-3 months, I've been experiencing some issues with my internet connection. Multiple times throughout the day, my internet connection will drop for about 10-20 seconds at a time, then return to normal. It drops the internet connection for everything on my computer, whether I'm playing games or talking to people through skype, it ceases all internet connectivity on the computer for the 10-20 second period.
I've been in contact with my ISP about this for months, and I've gotten a new router sent to me, bought a new ethernet cable and it have not solved anything as of yet. If it has any relevance, my ISP is Hiper (Danish company afaik) and I've been using their internet for over a year without many issues, until 2-3 months ago.
A few things I can mention that might help find the source of the problem:
- Im using a router which was given to me by my ISP, and I'm using a wired connection from my computer to my router (ethernet), and I'm using a desktop PC I built myself around 3 years ago.
- I believe its likely not on my ISP's end, and more so something on my end disturbing my connection, if so what could it be? If there is some sort of damage to my PC, which part of it would cause this kind of issue? The motherboard maybe?
I'm desperate to get this solved, so any suggestions, questions or input you might have that could help me, I would appreciate a lot!
