I have a big problem. I finished re-instaling win xp with sp2 inlcuded o a NTFS drive. I have internet through a cable modem (by USB...webstar model). I have the following problem: My internet keeps disconnecting every 5-10-20...-40 min. It could last 2 min...it could last 1 hour....but usually after 10-15 min it disconects itself. After it got disconnected I went to Local area network-->Suport-->repair and got the following "Windows could not reapir....because: Cannot flush the DNS cache"..indeed at the comand prompt after I wrote "ipconfig/flushdns" it gave me an error. I went to Administrative tools and DNS client adn it was on stopped and manual...I switched to automatic and started it but after a while it disconnected again...this time at the repair I got the error "...registering with dns". I went to administrative tools and DHCP client was on disable...I swithced to started and automatic but after I did that the internet couldn't work at all....although at the ipconfig/flushdns cmd I got the answer succesfully bla bla and at the repair I got no error still the internet doesn't work. I switched everything back so it can work but of course it keeps disconnecting a lot. So, what in God's name could be the problem??????/ PLS I AM DESPERATE! I searched everything but I can't find why it keeps doing that

i assume that the cable modem has only usb connection ?

maybe you should try a neat windows XP without SP2, just to eliminate that ?

has it ever worked ? what was the last thing you did before the problems ?

you could try a mediocre OS like win98 or NT and try that....

hope i can help.....

eh usb wanst meant to network with. if the modem has ethernet use that. i ran into this problem before with my neighbor. it worked perfectly ethernet but would disconnect randomally with USB. to fix it, i formatted and reinstalled everything. I troubleshooted forever and gave up and formatted and that worked.

All I know is, if he has a B.T. line their network has been a right AH in the past week or so. I keep getting d/c randomly, longest I kept a connection for was 1 hour 38 minutes.

I think it's all this new upgrading they're doing at certain exchanges around the U.K.

I tried reinstalling the drivers several time....I even reinstalled win several times...same thing. if I install win xp with no sp(or sp1) then I get a stupid error at a usb port(beats me why)...I formatted c and installed win xp but this usb port or whatever keeps making me problems...but before I formatted I had the same win xp with sp2 included that I have now....still I haven't had this problem....it's eating me...today I restarted the modem 3 times ..I was connected for about 5 sec after wich it disconnected me. if u could pls debate about the ethenret solution.....I didn't get that very well....thank a lot for the help guys
