internet disconnected and connected automatically

Hello,

WindowsXP, ADSL Router
It is quite strange, now my PC connected to internet for only two minutes then disconnected for three minutes and connected again for the next two minutes and disconnected for the next three minutes .....automatically
I tried to restart the router and restart my PC without anything good.

Do you know what happened and how to solve this problem.

Thank you in advance.

How far are you from the Wireless access point? Have you tried to connect hard wired to see if it just a wireless signal issue? If so, what is the signal strength of the radio?

Thanks,

Sorry, My bad. If you start a continuous ping like ping -t www.google.com or ping -t 216.239.51.104, will that show periodic timeouts? Also what, type of router is this and do you have access and even further, is there anything in the logs?

Thanks,

Hello Learn: make sure that your router is clear from any source of EMF,check all of your connections to make sure they are seated. Check power source ( of course you are using a UPS to power them ...right?)  Fluctuations  in voltage and current from a 'dirty' power source could cause dropouts....
Hope this helps... Booda
