.......Sorry to trouble,running W/XP/HOME,Have a firewall which is on auto updates(my anti virus that is).Last night tried to connect but got an error message which read'No dial tone'...my 1571 was fine,no interruptions on my phone,tried another socket and the same thing happened.
Anyway,after fiddling about managed to get a connection.Just this afternoon,i've got through,but got cut off 4 times in 15 minutes.
I'm with Bt together as my isp.
My only fear is that it's this worm going around.Any ideas...

If it is the W32 blaster worm enter Symantec in your search engine and download Fixtool for W32.Blaster.Worm. After download just run the programme and if you have the worm it will rectify the problem for you
