It's Like a Yo–Yo!

Sadly I'm describing my internet connection, which seems to dropping on and off with worrying frequency. Why do these things always seem to happen when I am home, and thus when I am moaned at to deal with it continuously?

Anyway basically first of all one computer connects but the other doesn't. After checking quite a few settings, I discover that my sister was mucking around with some of the settings and disabled the network. When asked later she admitted doing this, but didn't think it would be a good idea to tell me….

So that got the first problem sorted. About 2 hours later, both the computers start losing their connection. At first just the internet, but sometimes the network connection as well. After upgrading the Router to the latest firmware (a process which took a long time due to aforementioned intermittent internet connection) I'm still not having much luck. Then I realise that someone has knocked the plug a bit loose for the router…..

This seems to solve the lose of network connection. But the internet is still bobbing up and down happily. So after running nearly every test…I still haven't really got anywhere. I managed to get the log from the router, it is claiming a Loss of synchronization error seems to be the problem. Thankfully this doesn't seem to be an uncommon problem (the router is a DG834…and the problem is mentioned on their forums). However sadly while not uncommon, there is no definate solution.So it looks like I have more fun tomorrow trying to figure it out.

I've also finally started getting into work. Now the commonwealth games have finished, I'm quietly optimistic of actually being able to get things done.

(Oh I've also got my new glasses. Cost a fair amount but thanks to specsavers amazing 2 for 1 deal I have now got 2 pairs. This doesn't mean however that I am in any way encouraging a repeat performance of what happened to the last ones on the basis that I now have a backup)

  1. Ross…why are you blogging about this? We will not be able to help you on the basis that you are our computer expert and we know substantially less than you do on the subject! Your ramblings about routers and connections are beyond us!!!

  3. I thought I was good with computers but I didn't have a clue what you were talking about.

  4. Most of it is me lamenting the fact that half the problems had ridicously easy solutions (ie: checking something was plugged in and just pressing one single option) while I spent ages searching for one.

    It seems to be bahaving a bit better now. Although it still has the odd problem
