I had another post where I would lose my connection to the internet, both my hard wired and wireless computer. I would have to reset the router and then restart my computer in order to reconnect, but I would only have to restart the hardwired computer in order to reconnect, not the wireless computer. I purchased another router (the Belkin N600 on sale of course). For the most part this worked and now my wireless has no more problems.
However; my hardwired computer will still lose connection sometimes and I would have to restart it to reconnect. The wireless computer stays connected though. It just happened again and I tried to connect to my router and could not (got the message not found). Now I've used the cmd ipconfig/ all and printed out the page (while I was connected) so that the next time I have a disconnect I could compare it to when I lost connection. It just happened so while I was disconnected I tried the cmd ipconfilg/ all and the info was the same as when I could connect to the internet. I'm confused
I would think that the info from the ipconfig/ all while connected would be different then when I lost connection.
The motherboard I have is the EVGA nForce 780i SLI which has 2 lan connection built into it. I'm going to try and plug in the cat5 cable into the other plug and see whats happens, but I think that's futile since they probably both work off the same chips that provide the built in lan connection. In the mean time I would appreciate any input from you guys. Does this mean my motherboard is going bad. I haven't had any other problems. Thanks
