Exclamation My computer wont stay connected to the internet.

About a month ago my hard drive in my computer died and i had to get a new one installed. Since then, my computer has problems staying connected to the internet, or my wireless network, most specifically when i play online games. Otherwise, there seems not to be an issue.

My girlfriends computer on the other hand has no connectivity problems at all.

The problem goes like this: I'll have a perfect internet connection, wireless signal at full strength, and after about 30-45 minutes, my game will freeze, shut down, and upon closing, i find that my computer is no longer connected to my wireless network. Sometimes it automatically reconnects but other times i have to manually find my network. I start my game back up and in another 30-45 minutes it disconnects again.

Like i said earlier, it only happens when i play this game. I can stream video and other things without incident.

Ive checked my firewall to make sure the game had full permission to the internet and already had full access.

I've messed with all of my wireless settings and my wireless card settings and even tried messing around in my wireless router base unit settings, but i cant find anything that will fix it.

Any new leads on what i can do will be greatly appreciated.

Re: My computer wont stay connected to the internet.

What game is it? And you're using a wireless broadband connection? Also, try updating the drivers for all your stuff. Only download the drivers from the manufacturers website.
It might have been damaged when whoever put the new one in put it in.

Re: My computer wont stay connected to the internet.

i used the windows updater to update all my hardware drivers so i dont think its that

the game is maplestory. i didnt have problems with it before the hard drive crash

and yes. im on wireless broadband.
i'm using a linksys router though, and looking around i think other people are having problems with linksys too.

i really dont want to have to get a new router though. it worked fine before

Re: My computer wont stay connected to the internet.

Doesn't seem like the router, it seems like your computer.
Because it worked BEFORE your comp died. And your GFs comp works, and now yours doesn't after it was sent off to be fixed, it seems to be your comp.

Re: My computer wont stay connected to the internet.

Seems like a hardware problem too me. You might want to wait a bit though, some other members will be on soon. Also, what antivirus are you running?

Re: My computer wont stay connected to the internet.

I'm using McAfee Antivirus Plus

I thought i should post it again cause I'm not sure anyone can read it in all those ads.

Or maybe im the only one seeing the ads.

Edit: Nvm they're gone now...

Re: My computer wont stay connected to the internet.

oh yeah, they pop up when you're not logged in I think. Gets revenue for the site, so it can stay up, otherwise it wouldn't be up.

Re: My computer wont stay connected to the internet.

try using a WIRED connection and see if it happens.
this will help us trace if the problem is your wireless signal OR the game.
-
most likely it's the wireless connection. your game is more sensitive to lack of signal than all your other apps. for example. if you lost signal while reading this, then it's restored by the time you click something, then as far as you know, there's no problem. but in a game, it's different.
