I'm using a router and my internet and DSL keeps disconnecting randomly every 1 hour or so. Its pissing me off. I can't play a proper game without the damn internet going out.

I tried calling my ISP for the past 2 weeks, but they haven't fixed sh*t at their end.

Is this my ISPs fault or is it my router and the wires in my house thats causing this?
What can I do to fix this?

I would denounce technology and live like a Quaker. 100% effective in your case...

- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

It could be your router, your modem, or someone fvcking with the cables along the way your place of residence... perhaps for illegal purposes.

Reset your router by leaving it off for five minutes. Do the same with the modem, and see if that works.

There are more complicated ways of determining if it's the ISP, but it's possible that your connection is being throttled if they notice suspicious activity on your IP.

If you are viewing porn that you shouldn't be viewing, or downloading media that you shouldn't be downloading, or if anyone in your house is doing that... stop. That might resolve the problem.

It is exceedingly unlikely that unless you're the account holder, that the ISP is going to talk to you, btw. They're finicky about privacy like that. Generally, ISP's are just weird companies. I hate the one I have now, but I don't have a choice (other than using the wi-fi through a 4g connection by way of my iPhone).

Did you try turning it off and then back on again? If so, did you try turning it off and back on again twice?

That's actually possible. Someone in my apartment disconnected our internet in the room above or below us. They must have been stealing our internet...

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."
