Firstly, I am sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I am not sure if this is a connection problem or a Windows problem.
Running XP SP2, Virgin.net as ISP, and connected via speedtouch 330 usb adsl modem.
No network, no router.
I experience an intermittant connection cutoff. It happens about one connection in ten, always immediately after connection after having been on-line for about 2 seconds.
When I then reconnect, all is well and I can surf away.
The only clue I have is when I consult the event viewer and it throws up the following:-
Warning...source server, category "none", event ID 2504......The Server could not bind to transport\device NetBT_Tcpp_ {then a long string of numbers}

I have done all the anti nasty scans I can think of and have turned up nothing.

I cannot find a logical explanation of this on the web.

This problem has started only in the last four days, and is not concurrent with any software/hardware changes (none made) nor any security updates (none updated)

Can some kind soul take me by the hand and offer an explanation, and, even better, a fix ?

Thank you, jwinathome, for your response, help and link.
Had a look at that, and am a little baffled. The problem, according to that link, is either a shortage of ram (but I have 1Gb RAM and there is nothing else running when on line except the browser or the email client) or some glitch in a network setup, but as I am not on a network that should not apply.
However, I will have a dig around in my connections properties to make sure that there is nothing in there that is switched on but should not be, or vice versa.
