Loosing Internet connection.


Likes # 0

For the last few days my Computer has been loosing connection to the Internet.

It does still connect barely.Speed test is almost Zero.

When Trouble shooting it comes up as a DNS problem.I have tried ipconfig /flushdns without success.

The Top box on this shows the DNS problem that I get.


Using W/7 Home premium 64Bit.

I have taken off the power connector to the modem and the Ethernet connection then reinstalled them and managed to get it running tonight.

But just wondered if anyone has any idea as to what I should try next in case I have the same problem tomorrow.

It was the same using Firefox and I/E.

Using Virginmedia in the Northants Area just in case it is a fault with them.

With a bit of luck it may be sorted but still a bit sluggish.

Not sure if the DNS problem was because of no or very little internet connection.
