Question

  • 0

It's hard to say why that happens without knowing what sort of error message you get.  If you don't get any error message at all, then you aren't crashing --- you're disconnecting, which is probably a hardware issue.  Reboot your router by unplugging it for a few minutes while you go make a sandwich or something.  When you plug it back in, the router will get a fresh grasp on an IP address and should be a little more stable.  If you've been using wireless, of course, get off it.  There's way too much interference from garage door openers, cell phones, and "smart" appliances, all of which can eat bandwidth and introduce random choppiness in your signal. 

Check also to be very sure that your computer isn't overheating.  Heat can destroy your graphics card and components on your motherboard, so your computer ties to save itself by shutting down intensive programs when the temperature gets too high.  A small investment in a couple of good fans can save your machine and, incidentally, keep you from disconnecting as much.

If you are getting error messages, though, please add to your question by clicking on the Options link in its upper right corner and selecting EDIT.  If you are actually crashing, those messages will help us figure out why.
