Broadband connection sometimes goes down.

  heavymetalkid 17:06 09 Jul 2006

I have a broadband connection with Orange, which has to be accessed via a dial-up box each time I boot up. Occasionally (like today) I lose the connection and have to re-dial...this then usually happens one or more times before it eventually remains on. I've contacted Orange and asked them if anything is amiss and their response was to suggest that it could be due to work being done in the area. Anyone experience anything similar?

I don't know the answer to your problem but here's a link to the Orange (formerly Wanadoo) gripe website click here

Cheers Chris.
