What is your current network card?

If it is an old ISA card, or a USB lead, then I would strongly advise a PCI Ethernet card.

Finally, ask NTL to check the signal strength - they can often boost it over the phone, or send an engineer to check the street wiring.

There have been many reports previously on this PCA forum that NTL CorrectConnect is the cause of many BB problems. The NTL engineer who installed this standalone 600k BB modem used the PC 10/100 ethernet card for connection saying it was easier to connect with this card rather USB. CorrectConnect is NOT installed on this installation and I have had no problems with the connection since installation ten months ago.

I had problems with my NTL cutting off. I called them around and apparently I was recieving a weak signal which they have tweaked and it is now running fine.
