Pipex and humid weather

  Halmer 22:08 11 Jun 2007

Alas I'm now convinced that whenever it is warm and humid my Pipex connection gives up the ghost.

Does anyone using Pipex else experience this strange phenomenon?

I moved from pipex for exactly that reason.

By the way, did you know it's pronounced Pipe-X and not Pip-X?

Made a right bloody fool of myself.

Are you using a wireless connection? If so I might agree with you. Atmospherics can affect the wireless connection and a low signal will drop out - I have experienced that.

"did you know it's pronounced Pipe-X and not Pip-X?

YEs. Notice the 'e'?

No, and I have been on Pipex since 2002.

I very much doubt this is a pipex-specific issue as in reality I suspect you don't have a pipex connection, you have a BT connection TO pipex with some kit at your end.

Could it be that the kit is running quite warm and in the hot weather it fails? Or that your BT line is sensitive to this? You say it "gives up the ghost" but what does that mean? Can't connect whatsoever for hours? Or it drops the connection?
