Had this last month for a few weeks.

Simply tried substituting various bits.

Last bit was the phone line extension lead between phone socket and Livebox, a week ago.

So far so good.

Might be worth a try if you've got a spare.

Have you got wireless om your PC?

set up the wireless connection
and then

Plug the livebox (via its filter) into the master telephone socket.

can you now get a connection via wireless?

I had this problem with one of my customers, called BT who came out to check the box on the outside of the house, found no problem. The engineer said thare was a problem somewhere in the street, they found it and the internet worked fine after.

in the box at the bottom of the page and do not e-mail, everyone can then see your reply and offer help.

Yes i already have a wireless connection on my laptop and it works fine but during the day i have to use the house phone then connect to the internet which wont always connect. On a night i seem to get a connection a lot better but still have to use the house phone to connect sometimes.This is the same on wired or wireless.

HAve you checked the wireing to any extensions and are ALL phones sky box etc, filtered?

Including your Community Alarm if you have one.

Just for future reference, that's the one that caught me out!
