My Entire Internet Connection Drops Randomly!


Recommended Posts

I read some FAQs at other sites and they all just talk about the uTorrent speed dropping, this is different, my entire internet connection over my entire home network drops, it sends and receives packets incredibly slowly, I don't know what is wrong, and yes I do download quite abit of torrents and the problems started when I started downloading torrents, I have Charter Communications as my ISP, if that makes a difference?

Thanks for any light anyone can shed on this problem :)

Hmm Thank you very much, I'll report back if I have any problems. :)

I don't think that worked --as soon as I did that my connection dropped again, sometimes it happens even when I'm not using uTorrent, but it didn't happen the very first time until I started torrenting...
