My daughter is with Talktalk broadband near Bath. She uses a laptop and modem. Few problems during the week, but at weekends the modem rarely connects - just sits there flashing. No luck with the TT helpdesk. Anyone any thoughts, please?

I would say read the ISP review on this matter.

I must be missing something, but I couldn't find any reference to TT in your link?

I think this is the page click here

Thanks - that all ties in. My daughter was with TT before the big Free BB push, and seems to be suffering with the success 9if that's the right word) of their advertising.

There's no logical reason for that.

Click on the link i gave you click on the ADSL Broadband and you will find Talk Talk.
Mikef also gave you the link.

Stuartli. No, you're right. So why, I wonder, can she not connect to the server at weekends? Not something I've come across before. She's still stuck in the contract for now, but will change providers as soon as she can - the comments on the link are dreadful!

I don't know. I'm on TalkTalk and I've just done a speed test at and it's returned 1.85MB - good for a 2MB connection, although I get 1.9 and slightly above in the week. Upload speed was 241kbps which, again, is on the ball.
