My broadband keeps dropping, up until a couple of weeks ago i was on the 2mb phone line connection broadband, it regularly connected at 2.2mb and was very very stable. I then upgraded for free to the 8mb connection, since then it has been connecting at 1.3mb, but still stable. Then earlier today it started dropping, usually lasting about 10 minutes until it goes. I just have a alcatel speedtouch usb modem, just before it drops, the symbol in the taskbar that has four boxes, three being green and one purple, changes to three being orange and one purple. I have 'Redial if connection dropped' checked but it doesn't reconnect unless the symbol is green.
I'm running XP SP2, using FF, which i upgraded to 3 yeasterday but haven't read of any major bugs like that so far. Ad-aware says all is fine, AVG etc..
Anybody else had this problem, or can thing of any advice??
Thanks in advance
