I had this, I didn't realise that was what it was though. It was soo damn annoying! No idea how I managed to get any UK work done this week as I was getting disconnected every few minutes, pages wern't loading or taking ages, which shouldn't be the case with broadband. Needless to say it did my head in!


Anyways fortunately I updated windows as a matter of course in searching for a solution and it's seemingly worked, although I did download all sorts trying to fix the problem!


*touch wood* i'm ok now, but just a quick tip, if you do the updates thingy, restart your comp then it will set in properly. :)
