Broadband connexion break off!

  ADRM 15:13 28 Jun 2003

My broadband, in a student residence, is configured to detect automatically the connection. Sometimes it break off for no reason. Hours or days later, it reappears. What should be wrong and how to react?

It could be that the filters are broken, extension lead may be dodgy.. many thing's...

Best thing is to try everything out of the main socket, until you find the problem.

Can you give more details on the broadband, is it connected to just on computer, or shared by other computers? Is it owned by the students, or is there someone else responsible for it?

Correction...for 'on computer' read 'one computer'.

ADRM, it is better to use the 'Add a new response' facility below, the yellow envelope sends me an email, which means others who may be able to help can't see your reply.

It could be that your internet connection is part of a network, and will be maintained by the college/university. I suggest you contact the administration office and ask for help. Sorry I can't offer any other advice at this time, please post back if you have any more information.
