Default Hey , somone help me please!

Alright, Ive posted this in a few other forums asking this problem Ive had for such a long time... Basically when i download a large, or big file from the internet, the internet will like disconnect, and wont work again till i restart the comp k. Or when i play diablo 2 LOD itll disconnect, but ANY other game i play its perfectly fine.... i have no virus, worm, spyware, or nothing updated all my drivers and bios for my computer. I am using a D-Link router, BUT ---- it doesnt have anything to do with this because, Ive had an older computer hooked up to this before and it was fine.. I even tried just directly plugging the internet modem into this comp same problem with disconnecting when downloading large files or playing diablo 2. CAN somone tell me what the hell is going on lol ive tried like everything! is there an option i can change or something i can download to fix this HORRIBLY annoying problem.., Please someone help your my last hope!


Oh um yeah the motherboard is a Asus A8R-MVP and its all updated

what kind of internet are you using? Dialup, cabel, DSL?


also when it comes to games, i've found from personal experiance that even if the game is not online, if you have wireless internet it will cause some problems like lag and freezing. if you are wireless try hard-wireing to the network and see if that helps.

Does ya sister run games on hers like you do? Because you mentioned problems when playing games aswell, so thats probably causing your problems. You could also look in event viewer and see if there are any clues in there

I know you said everything is updated but check updates for the lan card on the motherboard and if you cant try another lan card one not built into the motherboard
