    Loss of internet connectivity


    I am posting this in what may be a brief window of connectivity. Last night I was unable to restore either Ethernet or Wireless connectivity in any of the ways that usually work, including a network reset. My ISP (BT, UK) told me they had a fault but later changed their mind; plus I had my own doubts since I had found I could still log on with both my Android tablet and my Windows phone. Although a non-tech it seemed unlikely this would be possible if the broadband service had a fault.

    So like the spider I tried and tried again and at last here I am connecting from my Windows 10 (Anniversary) PC --- but for how long? Is there advice for how to deal with this? An orderly checklist of steps to follow, instead of my 'all arms flailing' approach would help. Or should I just start with the network reset?

    When I added an Ethernet cable to my Wireless network, I hoped if one failed it could switch to the other. Not so. I have found if one connection goes down so does the other, simultaneously. Why is this?

    Well, I am still here without a break so I am going to browse the posts on this forum as long as it lasts.

    Is this all you want? I thought I had copied the lot but this was all that pasted. I can do it again if needed. I will experiment copying / pasting to Word Pad as I am not used to doing it with Cmd Prompt.

    This looks more like it! It is of course working OK now after a few failures.

    I have had longish spells with the connection not working at all, and others with it working briefly. Just at the moment it has been OK for a couple of hours, except that a new utility I have installed shows it has bouts of connecting then disconnecting rapidly, in less than a second so the interruption is not detected by me. Is this normal?
