So uhm,I was NOT looking porn,when the action stopped.Just stopped.
My modem is turned on and it is working,the computer shows I am connected
to the internet,but the connection just fails.
I tried calling the net fixing guys,but they said everything was fine.So,it works for like ~5 minutes,then it randomly stops working.
After,I have to restart my modem and pray it works,sometimes
does,sometimes does not.
So what's up with this?
Both modem and computer show im connected,but I can't.Idk how i managed to get here.
Now im hoping I dont get DCed as I would have to rewrite this lol.
Could it be a spyware or something? Cuz I don't have any antivirus installed atm :p.If it could be,any useful links to download some anti-crap for this?
Thanks everybody in advance.
oh shit fly panda quickly download a pegram called Malware bytes. Do a full scan then. You may have a virus. When Internet acts up like this it is usually Trojan downloader. So do this and get back to me In the results
Maybe it's your ISP. Had the same problem (I'd called them and they said everything is fine). Changed ISP and it worked.
Panda, I think it is a malware/spyware problem. I've had such problems with the internet connection.
Simple way to check but not the best confirmation.
Please check the "sent and the received packets" in your connection, if you see a drastic increase[more than your normal] the activity in a short period of time without you downloading anything : confirm it is as a spyware/malware problem.
At times some spywares manage to cause problem even if you have installed any anti-virus.
Well,it's like 4k packets sent/recieved.Yeah,its way more.I'll try Malware bytes program I guess.
Yes i use that program and another just to be save,justso you know if you do have some spyware or whatever it would probaly be a trojan downloader which will download even worse trojans.If you do not find any virus stuff and it won't get better from doing the scan post again and i will give you another solution i know.Which it might also be
Edit:How old is your modem?
Just like what happened to me as well.Just if it is not the virus thing then tell me how old your modem is
