Email and WWW access freezes

By wpm ·
Periodically (I use NT) My web and email access freezes. Outlook continues to check for email but doesn't get anything. If I click to send an email, I get an error dialog that indicates no response. All web pages are inaccessable. If I reboot the problem goes away. I have seen no pattern in when it occurs, but it's more frequent on SUndays.

You're not giving us much to go on... are you using a dialup connection? cable modem? DSL? LAN?

It sounds like you're losing your network connection (whatever it happens to be). When this happens, you might try going to a command prompt and pinging some other addresses you know are good. If the pings don't reply, that confirms a network connectivity problem. You might also type "ipconfig /all" from the command prompt and see what you have for network settings at that moment.

Hope thishelps you get started.

It's a dial-up connection. This occurs whether I have an established connection or if it dials each time. The problem isn't a lost connection. This will occur each time a dial-up is done or each time an access attempt is made during a permanent connection. Everything works OK and then suddenly it starts to fail. Only a reboot gets me back working OK.

You mentioned that when you rebbot, the problem goes away, so I assume that there is nothing wrong with your Outlook settings.

I suspect that there are some processes running in the background that are interfering with your network/email. Try capturing the processes after bootup and just after you encounter the problem again and see the difference. Probably some processes have started during the week and are interefering with your email.

See if this helps.

Since that question is so old, and you rejected all those answers, why don't you just close your question?
