I have a horrid feeling that the beloved Norton may have some involvement in my friend's internet connection grossely misbehaving

anyone else on ntl got any failure to report?

Hi p;3, Wednesday late afternoon there was a complete outage for Greater London, Ashford and various other areas, apart from that it's been working fine. I'm using a STB 4MB using the Waltham Park server.

Hi p;3, nothing wrong in the midlands over Xmas as far as I'm aware. I've checked with friends/neighbours who have NTL also.

has your friend looked to see if they have Nortons firewall if so, it is blocking their connection to the internet?

if your friend has their Nortons disk have they tried uninstalling it and using something like AVG and Zone alarm? (then uninstalling AVG/Zone alarm if this didnt help and putting Nortons back)

thanks for replies peoples;
could someone kindly take a screan-shots ( NOT via imageshack facilites pleasse) of what you see when you click on your two green arrows in the system tray and the sequence following until you are told that you are connected to the broadband and have your two green computer icons in the system tray;

I hope the beloved Norton has NOT struck AGAIN!!!!
(p3's heart sinks even lower...: )

that's assuming of course that those on ntl bb do not leave it permanently connected, but disconnect when the pc is shut down ( I hope you disconnect when you power down:))

from what I can understand the person is on NTL tv via a box; the tv works ok ( I think) but the bb is misbehaving

if anyone can take screan shots of the connection process via the two green arrows it would be appreciated

Well down here in Southsea the NTL bb works okay. Had no trouble for quite a while now. Used to have Samsung stb bb but now have an NTL Ambit 250 modem. On 2mb. And it is about 2mb in speed.
