Internet Inconsistency in Windows 7

I have computers in my home network which are connected to a Linksys router through which I share the single Internet connection on all the computers. All the computers used to work on Windows XP and everything was working fine. The problem started when I upgraded the operating system on one of the Computers to Windows 7. I am facing Internet Inconsistency in Windows 7. The other two computers which are running on Windows XP do not face Internet disconnection. I cant figure out what the problem is and hence I need your help in solving this Issue.

Re: Internet Inconsistency in Windows 7

Check the configuration of the Network which you are connecting to. Sometimes it happens that the configuration of the network changes due to addition or deletion of the network device. Hence check the configuration and then see for any changes which you have not done. If there are any changes then revert them back to the original setting and then save the settings. After changing the configuration, see if you are able to surf the Internet without any disconnection or not.

Re: Internet Inconsistency in Windows 7

I think the router is not able to handle the traffic created by 3 computers and hence it is disconnecting one of the computer from the network. If the router is old then check if it is able to handle the number of devices which you have connected to it. As the time passes the routers capacity to handle more components decreases. If the router is too old then replacing the router will do the trick. To be sure that the problem is because of the router, get it checked by some technician who can tell you exact reason of the network failure.

Re: Internet Inconsistency in Windows 7

By looking at the problem it seems like the driver issue. Windows 7 faces the issue of incompatibility with many manufacturers of the Network adapter. Because of this the Network adapter of many manufacturers do not work in Windows 7 as the operating system does not support the driver. Check if the drivers installed for the network adapter are working properly or not. To check the drivers status, right click on the My computer and then go to device manager. If there are any caution sign against the Network adapter then follow the troubleshooting procedure and see if the problem is solved. You can also try to update the drivers if needed.

Windows 7 when released had many network related problems which were later solved in patches and updates. This patches and the updates of the Windows 7 should be downloaded and then installed on the computer in order to solve the issue. This patches and updates are available on the official Microsoft site which can be downloaded for free. You will have to download and install the network patch for Windows 7. Installing the Patch will solve the problem.

Re: Internet Inconsistency in Windows 7

Try disabling DHCP and the IP V6 feature of the Windows 7 and then try to connect the computer to the network. To disable the IP V6 feature of the Windows 7 follow the steps below :-
1. Click on Start menu and select Run
2. In run type "ncpa.cpl" and press enter
3. Now select each and every network and view the properties.
4. Now remove the Checkmark against the IP V6 protocol
5. Click Ok and exit the wizard.
Disabling the IPV6 feature will hopefully help you in surfing the Internet without any disconnections.
