Internet won't work in games

by avaido / August 22, 2014 7:43 AM PDT

I have Wowway internet and every time I try to open a game, doesn't even matter if it requires online or not, my internet just stops working, then as soon as I quit the game, it comes back, it's only when tabbed into the game, if I tab out my internet comes back but then goes dead again once I tab back in. I know it's not my computer or router because I don't have the same problem when using my phone's hotspot, and I already replaced my router. I was wondering, could this be on Wowway's end or should I get a new modem as well, thank you. And by it going dead I mean stops working completely.

Go to a cmd window and do an ipconfig /all command. Post the results. Also look at your settings in the browser.
