Hi,

Sorry if this is a duplicate request but the internet crashed the moment I got to the send button....

Anyhow, I am a broadband user (not wireless) and afetr 1/2 hour or so I lose interenet connection.

I've checked the cabling & my ISP & there is no problem here.

I've run diagnostics which either say everything is ok or gives me the message:

"Cannot connect using HTTP, HTTPS or FTP. Probably caused by firewall settings. Check firewall settings for HTTP, HTTPS & FTP ports..."

I'm anything but a computer expert & I'm not sure how to do this, or if indeed this is the problem. Additionally, when I logged on this morning the tick from the "automatically detect settings" box in LAN had vanished. I've put it back in & repaired the LAN but to no avail.

Any advisce on how to fix the problem would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Problem solved!

The bottom line was that the modem wasn't talking to the computer. New modem installed & problem fixed!
