    Wired network connection keeps dropping


    Let me start by saying I have made no changes to the network recently. Out of the blue my desktop started dropping connection. Or at least that is what I will call it. I have a number of computers and streaming devices through the house. Nothing else has been affected. Today my desktop did something it has never done before. It is on a wired network connection and it just quit connecting to websites. The network icon in the systray was normal. No warning symbol. I tried the MS network troubleshooter. Nothing. I tried disabling and reenabling the network adapter. Nothing. I rebooted the computer and everything worked again. At least for a few hours. Then it did it again.

    Today it dropped like that 3 or 4 times. Can someone give me some pointers to troubleshoot this?

    When it drops does the light on the port for the pc go out? Open a cmd prompt then type

    tracert 194.119.131.66

    Hello Samuria,

    Before I check that, let me run something by you. I have not made any changes in anything on my computer or network. But, I have been doing something different with my computer in the last couple days. I have been working on both my Google Account and my Dad's Google Account simultaneously. i.e. I would have one tab with my email and another with his email. This morning everything seemed good until I did that again. Is it possible this problem could happen if I am signed in to his and my accounts simultaneously?
