Hi, you say ethernet? are you using a ethernet router/modem?

If you are, then you could reset the router by disconnecting the router's power, wait ten seconds, then re-connect router's power.

it is a router i have used 2 different routers and the same problems with both the problem started when bt had outage and has never worked right since
thanks leo

other than that - check all your line connections, from your main BT box to your pc - via adsl filters if applicable, one splitter for each phone in use, if more than one phone.

Have you tried my first suggestion?

  pat2068 22:52 15 Dec 2006

i only have 1 phone and the asdl changed the filters i dont know what to do now thanks leo

  pat2068 22:53 15 Dec 2006

yes i have tried everything i can think of thanks leo

Only other thing I can think of is for you to ask your local exchange to check your line, the outage you mention might have affected a local physical connection, possibly in one of those big green 'boxes' you see dotted about the place.

Hi, leo the lion© I too use bt and I have the same prob one minute you are conected then you look again and you have been re conected, this is a real pain when you are downloading a big file. If you phone up a nd complain you are given a number to dial someware in packistan who cannot speek english. when my 12 month contract is up I shall be voting with my feet.
