hi i hope someone can help me i got bt broadband through a belkin router/modem had no problems (the occassional disconnect but only once in a blue moon sort of thing) until this week. my connection keeps disconnecting, sometimes minutes apart sometimes ok for a few hours and only down for a few seconds/ minutes max. the data and sync lites are the only ones that go out on the router
i'm not sure if the problem is the internet connection, router or firewall any advice but be greatly welcomed.
i have the very same problem..its been like this for a couple of weeks now..dsl goes out of sync every now and again..its so annoying while playing m.o.h.a.a online!!havent been able to pinpoint a solution yet..i assumed it was line noise but that turned out fine..checked all the other usual probs..hope someone can come up with a solution...regards @[email protected]!c
no just cordles phones, the sky isn't connected to a phone socket and there's only one pc connected via a cable the others are wireless. the pc that's connected via cable is right next the the router. the filter goes from the phone socket to the router. thanks
ring BT broadband first to test your broadband line their number is 08702404650 and if they say everything is fine then ring 151 for BT faults and they will test your phone line to see if there is a problem there...so ring BT Broadband first and take it from there ok.
think the problem may be solved need to leave the internet on for a while to confirm. the line was ok no problems. the lady at bt was very helpful and said the problem may be to do with the network settings. the advice she gave was as follows: go to system properties, hardware, device manager. click the network adapters properties, power manangment and uncheck the boxes. mine had 'allow computer to turn this device off to save power' box checked. so fingers crossed problem solved . thanks for advice noelg23 and hope this may help you @[email protected]!c
whoever your ISP i would contact them asap and get them to check your broadband line and also check connections in the house and the settings on the PC...more likely to be settings on modem/router...but check all over again something may have been missed if its still happening...try resetting the router but unplugging it from the PC have it turned off and rebooting the PC and then turn it back on the plug it back and try that and see how that goes...
