Sky broadband dropping out.

  tamc98 21:36 30 Sep 2006

I have sky broadband and XP Pro SP2. Every now and then my connection will just drop out.
Modem/router is connected to onboard LAN (new motherboard but had same problem with old one) and when my connection drops I still have all the correct modem lights and the computer still shows a network connection.
I have tried rebooting the modem, unpluging/reconnecting network cable and checked device manager for problems. The only thing that gets my connection back is to reboot my computer which is a complete PITA when I'm in the middle of something.

Any suggestions?

TIA, Tony.

This can happen when the line speed drops suddenly. If you phone BT they can do a line test for faults.
