Connection Keeps Timing out, what should I do?

Asked By 460 points N/A Posted on -

I am facing a problem on internet connection on my computer while using through My Nokia N72 mobile. Previously it was working very smoothly and I never faced a problem while using the internet.

My problem is that whenever I Tried to open a page with my internet browser, It takes a lot of time and at the end shows the error “timed out”.

So I disconnect the internet and then reconnect to the internet using the same mobile, It starts working. But after browsing few pages it again shows the same error. Every time I have to disconnect & reconnect the internet connection to keep browsing. It’s really irritating and wastes my lot of time.

On my laptop I connect N 70 as a modem. Here It works well. But It always shows the same problem and error while using on a desktop PC.  Kindly give me solutions to resolve this problem.

Connection Keeps Timing out, what should I do?



The problem you’re facing regarding internet pages getting “Times Out” is a painful issue to most of the users. This problem causes too many difficulties while working on the net. So some possible solutions to these problems are given below:

1. One of reason for such problem is an IP connection Timing Issue. It occurs due timing limitation of the internet provider. When something goes wrong with server connection the user’s pc will show a timed out message in the browser window and it is also due to ISP failure. Well the solution to this problem is to modify the registry key. As a result the ISP failure won’t happen and the timed out message wont be showed. How to change the default keep alive timeout value in Internet Explorer

2. Another reason for “Timing Out” is the Port Blocking. Since internet is routed through 2 different port so whether it is secured or not the port may be blocked. Also some sites are not authorized for all to visit. So visiting this type of websites will show you the message, “Timed Out”. Putting an extra “S” may let you visit that site. Like “http” and putting an “S” in front of http and entering “https” may let you visit that site.

3. Sometimes this kind of problem occur due to the browser your using. Like Firefox sometimes makes you disconnected from sites and again reconnects. But the problem isn’t faced with other browsers. So try to use Internet Explorer,Opera,Safari or Chrome.

4. I would suggest you to remove and reinstall your Nokia N 72 internet connection software or pc suite whichever you’re using and then check again. Also check out your Land Card port or USB port whichever you’re using to connect. See if it’s working properly for other device rather than you’re Mobile.

5. Please check out whether you have put the actual User Name and Dial Number for your Nokia N 72 configuration. Otherwise it wont work properly or you can also check for your IP and firewall settings.

6. Sometimes it so happens that there may be some problem in the site you’re visiting. If such kind of thing happens, I would suggest you a settings for your Browser.

Go to tools > Click options > Click on the advanced button, Click the network tab > then under connections Click settings > Click auto-detect proxy settings for this network.

7. I hope that the problem isn’t with your service provider. Check out if your service provider requires a special configuration that you haven’t done.

8. Here I’m suggesting a site where you can get all the necessary information regarding How to setup internet connection using Nokia N 72 Link.

9. Please check the following.

  • If you're having proper signal or network strength.
  • If you have any software installed, that disconnects internet.
  • If your mobile is working fine with other PCs not laptop.

10. Last of all since Nokia N 70 is a GPRS handset the average internet connection class in the GPRS sets are Class 10. Which is really slow comparing to other Class 32 type of Nokia handset and which having EDGE within them. I would suggest you to use a wireless modem for your internet connection.

Try them out.

Thank You.

Time out problems occur for many reasons. Virus attacks, connection problems, web browser faults are some of these. In this case your desktop pc has been attacked by a virus or there is a problem in your web browser. Scan your system for viruses. Try by changing your web browser.

Make sure that connectivity between mobile and your PC is 100% ok.
