Internet connection problem

Recommended Posts

Win8.1

My internet connection has stopped working when I first start the computer. I have to restart the computer then it works fine. Restart never fails.

I have a red cross on the network symbol. If I try the fault finding it just says "cable disconnected"

All the lights are on on the router. Using wired connection.

Any ideas?

Hi Casey. I personally do not have Win 8, so cannot speak from experience.



However, I did come across this in a search:


http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows-8/cant-connect-to-internet



I realise that it is not specific about your problem, but I thought it might be something to start with - I'll keep looking. ;)

Thanks for the replies. Will try them but it may take some time as it only happens at the first start up each day. If I shut down and restart later in the day if starts OK.

Have you tried the simplest thing yet, turning off the router for 30 seconds or so

Yes. I always turn it off every night and when I turn it on the next day, I let all the lights come on before starting the computer. Have also tried setting it back to manufactures settings. You have given me a thought, I will try the opposite and leave it on all night and see what happens. Thanks.

Just an update.



Decided to do clean re-install. Re-installed win 8, internet worked fine. Tried the next day still OK. Upgraded to win 8.1. Internet OK. Next day fault was back. So it appears it is a problem with the win8 upgrade. Mystery to me. All I can think of is that it is to do with the date change somehow.


Will not be upgrading again.

W8.1 caused a lot of problems when it was first launched - so much so it was withdrawn for a while for a rethink.



Is your version one of the originals or is it freshly downloaded?

Finally got it working properly.

Found a second internet socket on the computer, swapped the modem cable over to this and no more problems.

I fail to understand why you are duplicating a post made over three years ago and in a thread of the same era
