internet connection time-out after 5 mins.


Hello guys,

I have some questions about my internet connection:

In my windows machine running Windows Xp my connections went everything fine but in my linux machine running Vine Linux it seems internet connection will get time-out connection after 5 mins or more, then after some mins it will go okay....

I don't know whats the problem of this one..I have a proxy server running..

Any help or suggestion is highly much appreciated.

Thanks in advance...


Best Regards,

Rainel

Do you actually get a message like "your internet connection has been inactive for 5mins, disconnecting"? (i.e. what makes you think this is a timeout? what are the symptoms?)

Could your bios have some kind of ACPI feature that puts bits of the computer (i.e. network interface) to sleep whet it isn't being used?

Hello,


It displays an error message "THE CONNECTION HAS TIMED OUT".
Actually, sometimes I can connect to internet in my Vine Linux then after surfing for a minute it will display an error message like I mention above..


"Could your bios have some kind of ACPI feature that puts bits of the computer (i.e. network interface) to sleep whet it isn't being used?"

I don't what is this but my computer will not go in sleep mode I just received an error message after a minute of surfing. Its very annoying coz I updated some package it will not continue coz my connection stop..

Any idea how can I solve this.

Thanks in advance,

Rainel

What does? Where? In your browser? Which browser?

In aria download tool? There is a bug: update it.

When this next happens, try dmesg | tail and look for messages about network, errors etc.
