I am connected (most of the time) to Charter Broadband. Occasionally, my internet connection will drop. I have called Charter tech support and they can't figure anything and I have had a field tech over and they can't find any problems either. I am starting to wonder if it is in my machine.
Here is the interesting part. I am running Windows 7. Whenever I lose my connection, I go to the Network and Sharing Center and click the red X between the Internet and the Network. Windows goes through it's diagnostics to try and find the problem and usually finds nothing or it tells me my router is not connected to the Internet. But without fail, every time I do this I get my Internet connection back with doing anything. Just clicking on the red X and allowing Windows to do whatever it is doing gets back my connection.
I was wondering if there is any software that I can run that will either help keep the connection more stable or help pinpoint what is going on with my computer to cause this.
Also, I was not quite sure where to place this question, so if it is in wrong place and someone knows a better place to put it, let me know and I will move it.
