HELP!! internet drops...

ok i posted before thinking it was my nforce controller causing internet drops.. well before i had no problems..

anyways not i have a routed wired connection through a linksys router..

1 pc = Win7 64bit
1pc = Win XP 32bit

before when it was XP to XP no problems at all!!

now that its win7 to xp when both comps are on the connection drops a lot, every 2-3minutes!

for some reason i just now noticed this

ive tried dissabling RSS, ipv6, install drivers, try the dhcp flag in regedit, upgrade router firmware etc and so on...

does anyone know the fix for this?? should i install win7 on other comp to fix it??

Couple of questions...

routers make and model

are you running any anti virus and/or firewall on the systems

is your network on a static ip or are the ips being established by the router?

You have two threads on the same subject. I suggest you stick with just one. chev65 is already working with you on the other thread.

I know this is no easy answer but you may need to buy a new router...


I can't even find your router in this list man...

You made a second post ok. Your router is pretty old and I can't seem to find it on the list.
There is a firmware update dated back to 02, may be worth a try who knows.

Linksys by Cisco - BEFSR41W Support

Yes that thing is a relic. You could try to assign the IP's manually but it still may not work.

The BEFSR41 is pretty generic wired router. No wireless. I have three at my office I use for testing small networks. About the only thing that I don't like about them is they tend to lose DHCP leases. Later firmware was better though. They're not very fast but they shouldn't be causing the kinds of trouble he's having unless he's running really *old* firmware. The last version posted for it seems to be pretty stable for me.

I am not saying that it may or it may not be the problem but i wont' rule it out as being "one" of the issues...


I would suggest to that guy to borrow another router and see what he gets out of that but defitily make sure his settings on both computers are correct becuase it would be a waste of time to borrow a router and then it not work cause of the settings....
