I enjoy reading and contributing to AoM.  But I find that every few minutes this site kicks my computer off of my home wifi.  This never happens unless I have AoM open.  If I close AoM my computer stays online and has no problems.  All other web sites work fine.  I am only having a problem with this site.

Does anyone have an idea why this happens or how I can fix it?

Well, there's always plugging into a cable.

 

Unfortunately plugging in a cable is not an option.  In order to get internet here I have to use an Aircard.

It doesn't do it to me and I usually use WiFi.

I've seen that happen consistently on my wife's computer when she visits certain sites. She's running Windows Vista so I racked it up to that. Haven't found a fix for it yet and I can't reproduce the problem on either of my computers (one WinXP, oneWin7).

What are you doing when you get kicked offline?

It has only happened to me when I was doing less than manly things like waxing my toes or texting gossip to friends while watching real housewives.

Try to be a little more manly and see if the site will allow you to stay connected.

LOL

So how's your cell phone reception? 

Realistically, you've probably picked up a nasty little cybervirus somewhere and it's decided to mess with your AoM.  And sometimes the electronics just get plain buggy.  I have a PC that is marvelously unstable on some sites whenever I use IE for intenet access.

That's probably not a virus. It's mostly likely due to browser settings or browser plugins that are having a hard time with some of the features of the websites you're visiting. For example, if you have IE and Firefox and, when you visit a site that has Flash or Java features, IE crashes or hangs but Firefox doesn't, it's likely that there's a problem with your Flash or Java settings or plugins in IE but the ones in Firefox are fine.

 

If the problem is limited to one of your browsers, it's a browser-based problem. If the problem occures on all of your browsers, it's not a browser-based problem.

"Similar childhood it sounds like, but I do not share your confidence or surety in the abilities you've acquired. Also never been tested like that. Props to you!"

Celebrating Change

My childhood past had a definite impact on my adult life:  anxiety with some PTSD and ADD characteristics, communication and relationship challenges and a pervading sense of alienation and disconnect.  But it has also been a gift.  I see beyond what happens and understand the reasons and the emotional impact it can have.  I am learning to step into the role of healer not just directed to my past and self but others around me.  I can do this because I empathize but am no longer willing to carry…See More

"I thought the speech was great, very thought provoking and believe it or not, not all that political. Thanks for sharing Liam."
