NTL broadband (non) connection

  ian3 12:36 29 Jan 2006

My son has ntl cable broadband which has worked fine for 2 years. After installing something called 'RAID' he cannot connect for other than a few seconds. He tried my laptop which worked perfectly (doesn't have RAID). Is this a known problem. Help would be much appreciated.

Try looking at a forum called Chetnet which is an unofficial NTL forum run buy people who work for ntlworld can't give a link because I can't connect at the moment.

There's two more NTL dedicated sites where you may get the answer you need

Thanks Strawballs and DerekR. I've passed the details to him (he lives 50 miles away) and I'll be seeing him next weekend so I'll let you know how he gets on. Many Thanks.

Have visited my Son and despite our best efforts and a guy from his IT dept, no further progress was made. It does appear that it may go further than ntl and that possibly the motherboard may also be faulty. He's going to send the pc back to the manufacturers since it's on a 3 year rtb.
Many thanks for your help
