I had a very similar problem. Internet would work fine sometimes and at other times it would just fizzle out. I had Comcast come in and do a complete noise reduction on my lines. Turned out I had so much noise from my daughters old VCR that it was killing my internet connection in a feed back loop all the way back to the first cable splitter outside in the box. That in turn sent my router into hysterics and fried the #1 port, consequently whenever I was online alone it was fine but soon as someone else booted up on my home network, the internet crashed again. End result, unhooked the VCR, and got a new router, internet is fixed.

I have an HP pavilion with Windows Vista. The inernet connection is lost. I'm pretty sure it's not the cable signal, the modem or the router because the router wireless signal works, and when we tried bypassing the router completly, the computer still did not work. The ethernet plug light on the back of the desktop stays green whether it's plugged in or not. The compuer does not think there's a cable connected at all. We don't know what to test next. Any ideas?
Go to the control panel. Right-click to remove the network device. Ignore Windows when it whines that a new device has been found. Reinstall the driver appropriate to your operating system.

I am having the same problem. My hp pavilion worked perfectly fine and all of a sudden the internet connection for it is absolutely horrible. I know it has something to do with the laptop cause I'm on another laptop and every other computer in the house is working perfect for internet. I have two laptops and the hp pavilion cant connect
