Computer problem.

#1SomeLikeItHothPosted 3/22/2014 2:10:15 PM
For some reason I keep getting disconnected every minute or two. My speed is fine and normal, but I'll randomly disconnect (I won't get the disconnect signal on the icon) and have to click "disconnect" from my connection and click "connect" again for it to start working. If I connect to another router this doesn't happen. And if I use another computer or my 3DS on this router I don't disconnect. I noticed when I connect to my router (I named it Blackfish) it shows up as Blackfish 2. I tried ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew but looking for other ideas too. It's been like this for two days.

the 2 just means you connected to a network with that name before that had different security settings

i doubt thats the issue, but if you want to be sure, you could either change the network name to anything other than blackfish, or delete blackfish and blackfish 2 from your preferred networks and then reconnect and see if that helps

Do you use a wireless dongle, or a wired connection on your pc?

Okay I deleted, let's see if this helps.

And I use a wireless connection. It's a laptop.

Didn't help. I'm usually pretty good with figuring out connection problems, but I'm stuck.

How do I do that?

And I didn't do anything. I just turned my laptop on and it was like this. I un-installed any recent programs but that didn't work either.
