How to resolve frequent internet disconnection on Powerline based net access? Pages stop midway, but video streaming page, once opened, works continuously but surfing is interrupted.
Rather than changing DNS servers willy-nilly, download and install Namebench
It hunts down the fastest DNS servers available for your computer to use.
Very true sir
If video streaming is working reliably, then your internet connection as such is fine, and in turn, your hardware (Powerline adapters, cables etc) are also fine. If you frequently have problems opening pages, but they do eventually open, then I can think of a few possible causes:
1. Browser cache issue. Try clearing the cache and see if that makes a difference.
2. Unreliable DNS. Try changing your DNS servers to OpenDNS (188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206) or Google Public DNS (220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168).
3. Router problem. If the router misbehaves, the results can be very odd and unexpected, so restart your router first (I suppose this should have been no. 1 on the list!).
4. It's also possible that it's something to do with your ISP, but that seems less likely given that streaming works well.
Streaming works uninterrupted once begun but to begin it may interruptedly disconnect
Understood - read the first sentence of my answer!
Thanks. I read. As had not mentioned error earlier , The error is like "Cannot open the webpage , would you like to open a cached copy of the page instead?" . The source workstation internet did not seem to disconnect
Thanks, that's useful to know. Unfortunately, in this case it doesn't help to narrow thing down. I would still try rebooting the router, clearing the cache and changing DNS settings (see dragonmouth's suggestion). If that doesn't help, get back to us.
I marked your answer best
