    I recently got a new Dell Laptop which came with Vista. It worked great for about a month and recently I've been experiencing intermittent internet issues. Every 4 minutes or so, the internet connection will be lost for roughly 30 seconds. It's a pain in the ass.

    I googled it and saw others having the same issues, but no answers on how to solve it.

    Any OT IT peeps that have any ideas? :x:

    Apparently I'm not as intelligent with computers as I thought, because I don't even know what that question is supposed to mean.

    Happens with both. T1 ethernet at work / wireless DSL at home.

    well its a dell, so its guaranteed to be loaded with spyware from the factory.... go ahead and format, and re-install your drivers.

    without using your machine or investing much time into it, yes.
