Hi everyone I need help sorting out a problem with my pc.I have 2 pc and a laptop on a home network one of the pc is running XP and the lap top and second pc are running Vista,some time ago the computers started dropping connection to the internet,I contacted tiscali who said it was the telephone extension cable that was the problem I connected the router directly in the phone socket and bought a network adapter for the computer that was connected to the router and now the system is wireless I still have a problem with the pc running vista it drops out intermittentlt when the phone is used It intermittently drops out for no reason, and when trying to connect to the internet I see the Cannot connect message flash up twice in quick succession and then it will display the Google front page Both the other computers work ok Any help would be appreciated Regards Dakar
Hi woodchip and northumbria61 I do not have call waiting and I tend to agree that it may be hardware or settings problem can it be anything to do with a windows update? I have only one phone and that has a filter fitted this has not been a problem in the past Regards Dakar
I very much doubt a windows update would cause this. Intermittent faults are difficult to get a solution for. Tiscali were right to say it could be your extension cable as I have knowledge of that with a friend. However you no longer use it. The "drop outs" were cured by connecting his Router directly to his phone socket using an ADSL cable.
