The problem is it dont hold the connection and says im behind a firwall when im not m ny freeserve althcal worked fine with the sites but this asdl one is just a nightmare,

Try this link- obviously beware of opening up ports if unsure of outbound/inbound destination. A google search should help

to the USB port on the computer? In case you're not sure, USB ports take a flat cable connector. The connector will have a symbol on the plastic part - it looks like a little tree with three branches.

If your current router to computer connection is USB you should try using an Ethernet connection instead. Your computer will probably have what's called a NIC (Network Interface Card) installed - you can tell by looking at the back of the machine. First take a look at the back of the router - you'll see some telephone-type sockets, usually (but not always) there are four of them. Now look at the back of the computer for a similar socket.

Use the lead that should have come with the router, and connect it to one of the sockets on the router (it doesn't matter which one), and to the socket on the computer. Disconnect the USB lead that you're using now.

If you are already using the Ethernet cable to connect the two devices we'll try another way. Come back and let us know the situation.

I am using the port straight onto the motherboard so no usb used heard that be a major problem so thought it would be easy by using the motherboard nic.
