Recently I've been experiencing my internet connection being lost. The yellow triangle signals no internet connection and then picks it up again after a couple of seconds.
It could be that it's been doing this for some time. I first noticed it after I started playing an MMORPG, and it annoys the hell out of me every time it happens. The intervals range from 5-45 minutes. When streaming/downloading it occurs more frequently.
Sometimes it doesn't even pick up the connection and just refuses to cooperate.
I've got a web server running, but it shouldn't affect my connection. At least it didn't on Windows XP.
I've got a static IP address. I've tried letting it dynamically get the IP address but that doesn't make any difference.
At one point, I thought it could be that the modem/router got overheated or something. So, I turned it off for a day to see if it would help. It didn't.
I removed the router out of the equation and put the cable directly into the modem. That did seem to work, but my web server stopped working.
I'm at wits end here...
