So I'm trying to be the good girlfriend here and get this solved. My boyfriend bought a Gateway DX4320-17 desktop about a month ago. He had an HP before it with Vista on it and it's only a year old. BOTH of the computers can not stay online at all. He gave up on the HP, got the Gateway because HP was trying to tell him he needed a new motherboard and all kinds of useless stuff. Now, I have a laptop with Windows XP on it. Dell XPS, 6 years old, a gig of ram and I stay online just fine. I can run World of Warcraft and play on the internet with no disconnects usually. He can't stay connected. He disconnected 12 times last night playing World of Warcraft. He lags HORRIBLY. He had Ventrilo running AND World of Warcraft last night. I've been searching the internet this morning on his computer and have been disconnected 3 times. His computer is the ONLY one on the connection that is having all these issues. Is it just him? Does he radiate some kind of super power that makes it impossible for him to stay online on any computer?! We thought it may have been the router but if that was the case wouldn't I be having issues as well? His parents just bought an iPad as well, would the iPad be causing a problem? I know on my computer it pops up that an unidentified device has connected to the network causing an IP error whenever they are on the iPad. Please, any help will work. I have no idea what I'm doing in Windows 7. I've tried rebooting the router but that does nothing. Flushing the DNS. Troubleshooting, searching the forums...and I just can't find anything related to this specific question. Like I said, everyone else on the connection stays on just fine. It's ONLY his computer(s). The HP isn't even turned on 90% of the time but when he used it, same problems there. Could never stay online. This Gateway is STILL brand new and the specs on it put my laptop to shame. So what's going on?
