Really Bizzare Issue Open | Networking

I’m having an issue with my pc that I’ve never encountered before. Whenever I boot it up, everything works fine. But after a few minutes, I’m no longer able to connect to anything new. What I mean by that is, for example, if I go on YouTube as soon as I start my pc, it works fine, and continues to work fine even after this weird cutoff. But if I try to open up a different website after this time, it won’t connect. I can’t tell if the cutoff is a time thing or the number of connections, it’s not super consistent. I don’t think it’s a connection issue, because like I said the things I connect to before this happens work fine. Anyone know what’s happening here?

Are you using Chrome. Try incognito mode and see if it works. If it does could be extensions that are problematic or corrupt profile

It does the same thing on every browser, as well as any application that connects to the internet

Do you know the brand of nic card you are using. Are you wireless?

I’m using an Ethernet connection, and no I don’t

Once this happens, runipconfig /all and post the output please

u/risemonger1 Aug 10 '22

What parts of the output would be useful?

1

u/Meti17207 Aug 10 '22

All

Even my IP address?

u/Meti17207 Aug 10 '22

Yes.

Also in case you are concerned, that ip is local and cannot be accessed publically.

Run ping 1.1.1.1, if you get a timed out or a request failed, run ping 192.168.1.1. If that also fails, this is a driver related issue.

Both seem to work fine

Good, time to check if it is your DNS. Right click your internet icon, settings, change adapter settings, right click your internet adapter, properties, double click ipv4, select manual DNS and type in 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 for google or 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 for CloudFare. Open up a command prompt and type in `ipconfig /flushdns, restart your machine afterwards.

Neither seem to work, it seems like it works for a little longer but it’s probably just coincidence

Also whenever I use /flushdns IPv4 goes back to automatic DNS, if that may be the problem

Unplug the power on your router for 30+ seconds.

Plug it back in and let it come online.

Hopefully it helps.

Try updating the driver for the nic card

Says I already have the best drivers
