HI, I have a bt broadband connection which I use on my main computer and my laptop, on the main comp. everything is ok but when I use my laptop the connection keeps cutting off, sometimes as much as every 5 mins, other times every half an hour, is there a fault with my laptop or is it BT's fault?,,,,,Thanks
