Windows 7: Internet stops working after a few hours - Help Please

Internet stops working after a few hours - Help Please

Hi all,

This has been happening for days and I have no idea what to do.

I hope someone can help.

Basically what happens is after a few hours the browsers on my main PC stop working. AOL still works, my torrent program still works, and frostwire still works.

Firefox and IE do not.

If I reboot the system everything is fine again until a few hours, rinse, repeat.

I have comcast with a linksys WRT54g router. The main PC is a wired connection and is having the issue.

The issue does NOT occur with the other PC in the network, which is connected wirelessly.

What I can't figure out is all that doesn't work are my browsers and Yahoo Messenger.

For example, Firefox and IE don't work.

However my torrent program still works, AOL (minus browsing) still works, Limewire still works. Also the laptop I have connected to the network wirelessly works fine.

When the problem happens all that doesn't work are the browsers.

I am STUMPED.

Thanks everyone for any help.

Below is a log that Yahoo Messenger made for me when the problem was occuring.

If you need any other information from me please let me know. I am quite annoyed as you can imagine.

Thanks everyone.

I'd say the torrent program is causing it.

Shut it down,. open up all your applications and see if it drops connection.

I'll have to wait until the problem surfaces again to test this out but why do you think this? Just wondering. If this is the case what would be a solution?

Thanks.

Try this.
Go to Start > Run, and type cmd. Now type ping google.com.

My average is about 45ms.

What is yours?

40ms it says, but that is with everything working ok.

When the problem appears again I will do that and see if there is a change.

This is driving me crazy.

Well yes. When the problem surfaces I tried shutting down the torrent program then launching firefox and/or IE and no change.

The torrent program works fine all the time.

Let's start with some cleanup tips.

Go to Start > Run,. and type msconfig. Uncheck all boxes except for your anti-virus program.

Now you can disable some services:

Use Black Vipers Windows 7 services as a guide,. but be careful
