Maybe you just need a new router/modem. I got mine replaced by my cable provider, works like a breeze now.

There's a little hole in your router for resetting, stick
a pencil in it keep it there for about 30 secs, it resets
the router to the original settings, could do the trick.

Re: Need a little computer HELP! please
It sounds like your port 80 is getting worn out. Sometimes after a few months of use a network card will need to be replaced because the ports wear out.

If things work fine on port 443 or port 8080, but not on port 80, then I'd recommend getting out the network card, and cleaning it. You can actually put it in the dishwasher, but don't use soap. Let it dry completely, then see if that helps.

Don't buy any of the port reconditioning fluid that the tech people recommend, becuase that never works for me. Its best to just replace the card.

Sometimes I found that the cable can be worn out too. It actually looses enough electrons to not function any more. Sometimes it can be recharged by plugging both ends into different wall sockets, but you have to take them apart and it can be a mess to put it back together. So probably its better to buy a new cable too. But don't buy the recharge kit that they try to sell you.

Hope this helps.

It might be a duplex mismatch, since you network card does seem to work. Right-click your network card > properties > configure > advanced tab and look for "speed and duplex"...if it's set for "auto negotiation" (if not, try that one) try setting it to half or full...just try different settings.

OP, your ping results are pretty useless. Follow this please.

And as another person said make sure you throw on -t

so ping <IP address of your Default Gateway(AKA router)> -t

Let it run a minute or so, see if it drops out, see if you go from a low MS count like <10ms to something obscenely high like more than 100MS or higher.

No it cannot be separated/removed. And the post you replied to was actually a joke. Ports don't wear out. Don't put it in the dishwasher. There is no "recharge" kit, or "reconditioning fluid". the poster was just having a laugh at you.

Ports do not just wear out...

It's your network card.

Possible test, if you can bypass your router and plug directly into your modem and then try. Have you messed with the firmware, firewall setting or anything of that nature on the router? If other machines work just fine, then that tells us your machine is the issue. I would say it's burning out.

Is there rhyme / reason when this happens? Like if you just start your PC after it has been off a while, does it work better? Heat issue if so.

You can buy a cheap PCI card for 8-10 bucks at most walmarts. Just make sure it fits your mobo slots.

Also, it's possible your cat5 has a loose wire, doubtful but possible. Or maybe pinched.

port can get fried even thru phone lines if there is enough surge. but you test it thru the hardware section of control panel. then you just buy new card/insert for the slot.

The port where you plug the line in is different than ports used to send tcp/udp transmissions. So for them to say port 80 may be fried but ports 8080 and 443 aren't, isn't true.

Sorry, may not been following thread properly. My bad. Especially if he said he was getting some signal then com ports should be fine.
It just happened to me a few years, had a phone line run into my computer and the phone line alone during a storm sent a surge into the board and fried a few ports. Thank goodness I just had to replace the $30 ethernet port and nothing else. Well, the USB ports still act up, but screw it. That machine is from 2000 I think :)

Also, I just found this article, hence my return to the thread. Hope it's not too off topic, but I too, am an armchair IT problem-solver and wanted to share.

When my above machine starting running VERY slow IE, I FINALLY realized it was due to an IE update/upgrade.
After several attempts, I undid all recent updates, including the one to IE9. Poof - problem solved. Now, here on my netbook, I am about to do the same. Although IE 9 is works OK and fast for most low graphic sites, it is so slow to load when there are many graphics and youtube vids, like some threads here on GLP. Come to find out the reason behind the delay might be in the article I found below:

"With IE9, Microsoft introduced the concept of hardware acceleration—using your PC's graphics card to speed up browser functions. Another important consideration is how long it takes for the browser to get going in the first place." Both my netbook and old PC have just 2 gigs and old/minimal graphics card.

The computer guy down the streets says its probably something to do with my network card, but i'm pretty sure it's built into my motherboard and my motherboard still works fine
 Quoting: Yinse


If your NIC drops, it won't make the mobo fail, that's for sure.

I had a mobo where the I/O was going out on it and the computer still worked. Just every now an again you might lose your mouse or keyboard for a moment.

You didn't really describe what is going on and there are plenty of logs that keep track of this... I'm not sure what others have posted or your reply, but just felt the need to point out that components on board fail all the time and it typically will not affect the mobo unless it is something like a chipset (northbridge/southbridge chips) failing.

dump Internet Explorer - completely delete from your machine, save it to a CD and then break it into tiny pieces and finally light the tiny pieces on fire!

Internet Explorer has every hole imaginable to let malicious intruders hijack your machine, steal your bandwidth and just plain play a foul with your computing experience.

Get rid of it!

That will be step one to solving your problem. Guaranteed.
