is this a server problem?

  zaz 16:28 03 Jul 2003

I am not sure if this is a server problem or not - help?

When I connect up - all works OK for about 1 minute. Webpages load in good and fast, Outlook opens OK - no problems,

After about one minute it slows up, and I continually get the message 'this page cannot be viewed ' (or similar). So I have to back button and try to reload the web address again - sometimes it works, sometimes I get the message again about not being able to view.

Sometimes whilst trying to load in a website I lose the connection all together.

When all is Ok - I get all the lights on my external modem flashing beautifully showing me its working - but when it slows up I only have 5 out of the 7 lights lit and the other two remain dead!

I have queried it with my ISP but they say it is a pc problem! i say thats a cop out cos I think its an ISP server problem!

any ideas?

Who is your ISP? It may be worth having a search on support sites for any problems experienced with them.

Also, is your modem driver up to date?

ISP is a Swedish company called Tele 2 - will investigate problems - but how do I find support sites?

How do I check if modem drivers are updated?

To check your modem drivers, first of all you need to know the manufacturer of your modem. Go to their site and see what is their latest driver. Go into the device manager on your pc and then into the modem properties. That will give you details of your modem driver version number.

If I remember correctly, Tele2 is used by a friend of mine in Ireland at work and she mentions some problems - I don't know the nature of them nor a solution.

I have had nothing but problems since it's supposed to have been upgraded, I have resigned my self to it not getting any better. Pages not loading fully etc

woodchip - do you mean trouble because you are using Tele 2?

It hangs on last server, with Opera you can see all the servers at the bottom of page, and the number of pictures being loaded many times it does not load the last pic. At the moment it appears to be OK, except having to keep clicking on the reload button.
