This problem isn't really Linux-related, but since I'm encountering this problem while using my 'nix netbook, I figured I'd try here.
The problem started recently and has been pestering me ever since. Something happened to a computer on the network and whenever that computer is on or plugged into the LAN, I've been having network troubles. I use IRC and I know that error messages given in most clients are more descriptive than other programs I use, such as online games and web browsers. Every minute or so the network resets itself. Games like Team Fortress 2 or Minecraft suddenly lose connection with the server and time out rendering many of my favorite games useless. When I use my IRC clients (XChat in Linux, Chatzilla in Windows) I'm disconnected and the client spits out the error, "Connection reset by peer." The suspected faulty machine on the network is running Windows XP Professional Edition. It's not just my two machines, my netbook and desktop, that are having the issue. Other computers on the network also have their connections reset, always at the same time.
Is this a virus issue or a hardware issue? Could it be both? How can I fix it? Thanks in advance to all answers~
There are too many possibilities, if you use wireshark to capture the traffic it has an expert analysis option which can highlight common errors, but your problem may not be a common error. Once you have the capture, grab your favourite drink and start analysing, it takes time but you'll get the hang of it.
