I have a new G530 (Vista Home Premium, 3GB RAM) which is exhibiting weird behavior. Whenever it is on my home network, it causes all machines on the network to lose Internet connectivity for a few seconds every 30 seconds or so. Everything on network is fine, then I connect the G530 -- either turn on the wireless switch or plug in a cable. From then on, the network connectivity is periodically interrupted.
Here's what I know:
Any ideas? Thoughts? Suggestions? Shoulders to cry on? Otherwise it's a wonderful machine, but I need a computer, not a network killer....
Solved! Go to Solution.

Have you tried this with a different router? What happens when you log in places other than your house's network? Do the router lights show any changes (usually green to ambar, or on to off, depending on the router) when the disconnections occur?
There are a number of reasons why this could be happening. I'm tempted to blame IPv6 native support on vista, but, since you have other Vista PCs connected this might not be the case.
That being said you might want to try disabling IPv6 (since it is easy to do)
On the Run box type: ncpa.cpl (hit enter)
Select the network connection, right click -> properties
uncheck Internet Protocol Version 6 and confirm.

I'd love to know how this ended. Was it the router after all?
