Windows 7: Help!! Strange Internet Connectivity Issue

24 Mar 2010   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

That is good to hear. I hope the problems are resolved.

I too have this identical problem since it was new out of the box.
HP w Win7 64 Home premium.

I restored the network driver
Downloaded the latest driver from HP
Completed a system restore
Sent the computer back to HP and they replaced the motherboard
3 different virus programs (run independently) say my system is clean.
Restored IE8 settings to default
Set Internet settings to openDNS

All these things, and the connection drops out after 36-48 hours. A reboot always corrects it and the cycle starts over.

It's not a router problem, as my machine which is hardwired to the wireless is the only one locked out. The other computers on the wireless side work fine.

I too can ping web addresses and my Satellite modem, but not on any webpage. (IE8, FF, Chrome)

Running ipconfig /flushdns or the remove/renew settings does not solve the problem.

If you are considering a system restore to fix the problem, don't bother ... at least for me, that is not the problem.

My guess is it is a registry or Win7 problem that has yet to be discovered by Microsoft.

Win 7 Home 64bit


The problem we were having started later on with our systems, in addition, we were dropping the internet 3-6 times a day.

I know you mentioned you have run 3 different AV programs but have you tried Zone Alarm as we are sure it will pick up this "dropper virus". Other than that I can only hope the experts on this forum can give you some direction.

Since the change of the MB didn't fix the problem, my guess is there may be a problem with the memory and/or it is infected. Maybe try to run WMD (Windows Memory Diagnostics) from windows program search.

Since my last post I have not had to reboot one time, all is working well now.

Why do you have an odd number of memory? I noticed in your specs it is listed as 5gb, it's not paired?
