my connection to tiscali 1mb broadband keeps dropping off every 15 mins or so then reconnects about 5 minutes later. this only happens when using a netgear dg834gt asdl router and have alos tried a buffalo air station 54 router as well. everything is fine using the usb modem suppled by tiscali. have tried the netgear support helpline about 10 times but no help there. I am going mad now - any help greatly appreciated.

It might just be that you're losing the wireless connection - Our tiscali modem is attached to the main PC and we are using a USB wireless network adapter so that I can access the internet via wireless on my Laptop. This occaisionaly disconnects for a couple of seconds usually.

You might want to check whether tiscali support modems that they don't supply (I'm assuming your router's one with a modem in as you can't plug a USB modem into a router).

If you really want wireless tiscali do have a wireless modem listed on their online shop but it's quite expensive.
