    Internet Constantly Disconnecting


    Bonjour,
    I have a computer in my basement that I use to run multiplayer game servers. Recently, it began losing internet connection randomly. After a restart, it would work for about 10-15 minutes, and then crash again. I am accessing it using Remote Desktop Connection, so it is tough to keep going down there and restarting it. It is wired directly into my modem using an ethernet cable. The specs are:
    Pentium E2200 dual-core
    2GB DDR2 RAM
    Realtek 100Mbps ethernet adapter

    I would appreciate a quick response, as many people are waiting for me to fix it.

    Hi,

    Interesting that you start your post off with the word "Bonjour".

    Do you have the Bonjour service installed? You can check to see if you have that in the task manager or mDNSResponder.exe in the task manager.

    Notoriously causes your issue. Complete removal fixes it. There may be special steps to completely remove it. If you need help, we can easily help you with that. I think there have been automated uninstallers made now too, which are available.

    If that is not your issue or concern, start with ensuring the latest driver is installed. Left side, "Communications":

    You say that the problem PC is plugged directly into your modem, yet you are accessing it from another machine using RDC.
    It seems to me that you shouldn't be plugged directly into a modem and that you should be plugged into a router or switch instead.
    Modem>Router>Switch

    Perhaps if you can post your ipconfig/all here when the connection is both up and down it would be helpful.
