BB connection dropping, or is it??

  Taw® 09:18 25 Mar 2006

I have 1MB BB and connect through Pipex. Over the past few months the connection appears to drop randomly. Only thing is if I select connect, all connects well icons appear on taskbar, however the browser gives the page not found, check connections etc. If I click the connection icon the packets sent shows activity i.e increasing but the packets receieved thoug showing activity is extremely slow. I use sygate and have disabled this so it is not the firewall. I have disconnected, logged out and in connected but receive the same result. Only way is to reboot the computer, where all goes well for random periods of time

this is often a sign of a poor connection from your phone to the pc. It is worth taking all connections out and putting them in again. Include filters etc. If you more than 1 filter try swapping them over. Once a connection breaks even for a millisecond the system may not realise it is broken and remake it. The reboot is the only way.
