not Everytime but sometimes whenever I power up my pc the internet cuts off it's not that the router electricity cut off nah it's just the internet
wait when I boot my PC? what do u mean?Maybe your pc consumes too much power. Try to wait when you boot your pc up to see if it helps. Or maybe it is the supplier or the age of the router that is causing the problem.
@Why_Me probably meant there may be something 'stuck' in your router software. A reboot is standard first troubleshooting step with any software or hardware problem, quite often all that's needed to 'unstick' whatever was 'stuck'.I don't have to reboot my router
I'm confused by that too.wait when you boot your pc
yea ofc I tried to reboot my router@Why_Me probably meant there may be something 'stuck' in your router software. A reboot is standard first troubleshooting step with any software or hardware problem, quite often all that's needed to 'unstick' whatever was 'stuck'.

Should he wait near the router, or near the PC, or leave the room altogether?
it's either the ethernet cable or the ethernet port on the router cuz I turned my PC twice without the cable connected to it and nothing happens and twice with the cable connected and internet gets cut off so it's cable or the port on the routerHave you checked your filters , the ones you plug your phone wire and internet wire into , you should have one on every phone line socket and shy if you have it. If you have a spare one swap them round , if you dont have a spare one remove them all and replace them one at a time. A faulty filty can cause problems with both internet and phones
Forget the fact your internet is going down .... if you have problems with only 2 items on your wall outlet you need to get it checked
Socket & See SOK22 Craftsman Socket Tester : Amazon.co.uk: DIY & Tools
you dont need to get a wall socket tester as expensive as this as their are cheaper ones around , i used one all the time at work , the combination of the light pattern will tell you your problem
DONT attempt repairs yourself get a qualified electrician
my motherboard doesn't have wifi and it's been two days now since I connected the ethernet cable on a different port on the router and internet is fine nothing is cutting off thank god so yea will seecheck your pc's settings to see how it is set to connect to the internet , i use ethernet but when i got my latest pc the builders had set the pc to connect by wi-fi so it was trying to use both methods at the same time and it caused me a few problems until i discovered what they had done.
tried to power up my pc with and without the ethernet cable and the internet cuts off whenever the ethernet is connected to my pc
so the DSL led turns off and then the internet oneSome questions:
At what part of the boot does your router stop to function?
Does it happen if your ethernet cable is not plugged in to your computer?
yes internet cuts off for the whole house not only pcCan we elaborate what we mean by internet cuts off? Do we literally mean no internet for the whole household sort of thing? So when you power up your pc, the internet cuts out and all the devices using the wifi loses connection as well?
A thought occurs, is it possible that perhaps its trying to establish an internet connection? Maybe DHCP settings as it tries to get another IP from the router? Its not likely as there is a sort of TTL for dynamically assigned ips. You might want to try static IP addresses for the PC and see if that helps.
Secondly, no other device causes the problem but the PC? has the problem started recently or has it been like this since you had the pc from day one? Any idea if AV might be causing the issue?
What happens when you turn them both on separately and plug the ethernet cable in once both are on? Does the internet drop out afterwards?
