QB2017 - Could it be the cause of my internet going up and down?
I had to switch computers and reinstall QB 2017 from a computer that ran Windows 10 to Windows 7. Additionally the Windows 7 computer does not have a wireless card so I have the computer physically wired to the router. Since I have done this my internet connection sporadically disconnects. Now it could be that my ISP is going up and down but I have determined it only occurs if I have QB open. I have turned off the functionality to have QB access to the internet.
I'm wondering if this is strictly coincidence or if this is a known QB issue?
Let me share a few information about the connectivity of internet connection to QuickBooks Desktop.
I want to let you know that this is not a known issue of QuickBooks and it doesn't affect your internet connection. Here are the database servers that QuickBooks requires to meet the minimum requirements for your version.
Windows Server 2012 R2.
Windows Server 2011.
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
Windows 8.1 (update 1) or Windows 7 SP1 (Enterprise and Professional editions only), natively installed.
