I'm having an issue where if my download speed stays at a consistent high rate, my internet will drop and i'll get the "limited or no connectivity" problem. Three tests I have done to confirm this:
1. Running MSN live video call with someone, sometimes while streaming a video on Firefox.
2. Running bittorrent with the bandwidth set to wide open, letting speeds get up to 150 Kbps consistently.
3. Letting my PC stay on all day, connected to broadband.
The first test only causes the issue sometimes.
The second test causes the issue consistently.
The third test causes NO problem.
My set up is a HP dv6000 special edition laptop (vista, 2.00 ghz athlon X2, 3 gb ram) connected directly to the isp's modem, no router is involved. I've spoken to my isp and they say that they do not limit my bandwidth usage. If anyone has any idea on what is going on, i'd appreciate it!
