Broadband dropout (i think)

  Legslip 21:51 06 Dec 2005

I boot my PC and download e-mails (Outlook) and web search (Int. Explorer) no prob. Then if I go away for an hour or so, when I come back it appears that the broadband connection has dropped and the only way back is a re-boot which is a b....y nuisance. When I try and download e-mails it wont, and web search results in all pages being unavailable.
Win XP, BT Broadband, D-Link DSL-G604T Router. AVG & Zonealarm.

Any ideas? It never used to happen!

just off the top of my head. try start/control pane;/system/hardware/device manager.expand the usb box,right click on usb root hub, select properties then click the power management tab. make sure the box to allow the comp to save power by switching the device off is this for all root hubs ans also the network adapters if you connect through a lan.

Sorry Fred. No joy. Clicked on Int. Explorer this morning and cannot display page. Nor can I send / receive e-mail. Any ideas anyone?
