Sounds like your security software has had an update that is not to your set-up's liking. Check firewall, AV settings in your security program. If you have Norton check their site for similar problems.

Interesting as I'm having a similar problem with a hard wired HP PC.

You posted the same question three times in separate threads. I have deleted the other two now, so all further responses will appear here.

Hi I contacted my broadband supplier and they suggested i unplug my modem at least once a week for the settings to reboot and pick the best wi fi reception.They checked all the settings and everything seems fine on their end,i will do this and hopefully this resolves the matter,so far so good no cut off.i will update the post and post back in a day or two,thanks again for the replies, patso
