On the W7 dell PC here The connection regularly drops out after about twenty minutes online,
The PPP indicator led goes blank, indicating to me that the probem may be isp/line/ or router
This can occurr spontaneaeously but usually happens if I try a search in google or bing, the page will hang, then the PPP led on the router goes out, and the connection is gone.
It can happen sometimes when I log in to sites as well,
For instance, sometimes if I'm logged out here, and my previous login details are deleted with crapcleaner, Once I've completed the user and pass form, the connection drops,
It's not everytime though,
This has been going on for a couple of years, but it seems to be happen everyday now, (three cut outs this morning already)
I put it to my isp that some malicious user maybe injecting some code to disrupt my service, and they laughed. However in the last three years some really nasty stuff has happened with online identity theft, death threats, physical assaults and attempted murder, so I leave that possibilty open that a malicious user is causing the issue,
Im also open to the router "Bilion 5200 G" being faulty, and open to the isp "Talk Talk business" being poor service.
So I'm thinking about a new router now, but should I waste some cash on that and still be hacked by a nasty user, or let down by a sub standard broadband service
