Recently I've been having problems with this..after a period of inactivity and i use a link ,or the back button for instance ,I get page not found or page unavailable.Refresh does nothing.Connection dropped I thought,but the connection is still active and modem ok,most peculiar of all, yahoo messenger still works when this happens! To get the browser working I have to disconnect and reconnect then its ok for a while.It also affects IE6.
So it seems to me the browser(s)aren't able to connect for some reason?
I've checked that both are allowed on the firewall(sygate) and have done spyware and antivirus checks, its all clean.
BT suggested unistall and reinstall browser but that didnt help.I suppose I'll have to wait til monday for more help from them, so I thought I'd ask if anyone here has any ideas!
Thanks

I have noticed that BT internet has been a bit wobbly over the last few days - so it might be them rather than you

I wondered that,it does seem very peculiar
