I have had issues for a few months about anything connected to the outside world drops all connectivity after running too long.
This includes winmx just getting a secondary, transfers. Also it happens to firefox, or any other thing I use such as a downloader.
It happens only on my computer, which I keep up to date via M$.
Stranger still, my roomies pc doesnt do that. It hasnt been updated at all for at least one year. It needs updating but with the way mine is acting I dont want to change it.
The ancient pc running win2k has no problem either. (hosting). This one doesnt lose all connectivity however. Connecting locally to the room pc, that never, ever drops.
It just happens when connected to the outside and only on this pc.
All computers behind a router before anything can go out or in.
I suspect a buggy update myself.
Has anyone else seen this happen?
It happens to me if I try to stay connected by any app for lets say 24 hours.
Its annoying to try to download large files that take a long time when the thing suddenly stops responding.
As I said, it invvolves any and all things that require a long term connection, except locally...
I can fix it only by exiting the offending program and restarting it. If I do that, suddenly it works again.
