Hello i am new here. Justr would like to wish everyone a happy new year firstly.

Having a really annoying problem with my internet connection. I am on a BT VOyager 2500v. Connected via USB. My net drops out every 30 minutes or so and for some strange reason also logs me out of some websites and forums i visit. I have done a spyware/virus scan and my PC is clean. Can someone please help me with this?

Do you have access to another router/modem to check if the router is faulty?

  AntJac 21:35 07 Jan 2008

I think i do. Unless my father has thrown it away!

  AntJac 21:37 07 Jan 2008

Actually i dont think its faulty as i havd the 2500v for a few years now and its worked fine before. Gone 2 weeks without disconnecting

Could have been interference from christmas lights or something

No im having problem now. I just meant i have gone 2 weeks before with no trouble. So its not the router.

Is there just the one pc connected to the router?

Try connecting it through ethernet instead of usb in case its your usb port

  AntJac 21:57 07 Jan 2008

Yeah just the one..and how do i connect via ethernet?

Use a cat5 cable. You should have got one with the router click here

Ah yeah. Ill try that and report back. Thank you for the help.
