Ok, as a complete novice I will pass on my recent experience and it's solution to see if it is relevent to yours.

I have been on the internet for 6 years and have experienced regular disconnections. Just recently it has become a nightmare to the point of giving up.

Then I discovered this...... my set up was to blame.

When I installed the hareware this is how I did it. The telephone master socket was in the hallway so I fitted the filter then from that I connected a 15 metre ADSL extension cable, upstairs to my modem/router. I then connected the modem/router to the PC with the short yellow cable.

All worked fine but as I said I experienced regular disconnections but I became used to it.

Well as I said my set up was totally wrong. Apparently the signal from the master socket to the modem/router is prone to outside interference which will make it disconnect from the internet. Therefore you should only use the cable supplied with the modem/router and not use any extension cable. The signal from the modem/router to the PC is different and that cable can be as long as you like.

Well, I moved the modem/router downstairs and connected it to the filtered master telephone socket with the supplied cable and purchased a 15 meter cable from Ebay (for a fiver) to connect the modem/router to the PC and 'hey presto' no disconnections and a vastly improved service.

Hope this helps you, sorry if not but I think I will make a post out of this thread incase it can help others. :thumbsup:

Go to start\run and type services.msc scrolld down to Windows Zero Connectivity and double click it (or right click it and get properties). Write back what settings you have turned on or off in that service? Is the service running? Is it on Automatic or Manual?

What kind of internet connection are you using? Dialup or highspeed/broadband?


Continue below only if you are using a highspeed/broadband internet connection:
1. Are you using wired or wireless connection?
2. Do the following steps: Goto Start>Control Panel>Classic View>Network Connections
3. In the network connections screen, find the LAN connection you are using to connect to internet through.
3. Right click that connection, and select status.
4. On the Status screen, click the Support tab.
5. Tell me wheather it says Automatic or Manually configured next to Address Type:.
