Until recently I have had no problems with my internet connection, in the end of June I connected my daughters desktop computer to a wireless connection upstairs, since then I have had nothing but problems. Previously she had been using a laptop on the same wireless dongle downstairs so I do not believe it has anything to do with her computer/wireless connection.
It began that if she was connected then I could not connect and vice versa, then my friend who is brilliant on computers came and solved this for a few weeks. Then we could connect the same time but the connection began dropping when I came off the computer, because my daughter thought I was switching off the router just to annoy her, which I wasn't. I noticed that on my D-Link router the internet light at this time would be red, I found that switching off the router for a minute would solve this, it worked for about two weeks until it was more off than on, so I bought another router and everything was respectably fine with minimal loss of connection.
Then last week I began to notice that my web pages were taking forever to load so I did a systems restore to no avail, then the connection began to drop again!!
Presently I can surf for about 10-15 mins before the connection drops, I thought it was my computer so I did virus scans, registry cleans you name it, I tried it, but its happening to my daughter computer upstairs also so its not my computer!
My isp is talk talk and apparently they recently changed servers themselves but was informed that all the 'hic-ups' had been sorted a few weeks ago, which would have matched with my initial problems. They say there is nothing wrong with my line, I have ordered a new router from them and a tuning kit yesterday, but I genuinely don't think this will solve the problem.
I have, under the advice of a computer technician, plugged my router directly into the phone socket, but I still keep losing connection. This is so frustrating, as no mater what time I go on-line, whatever I'm doing it keeps dropping my connection.
Please can somebody help?
