Comments Reply 1 of 8 jaske Posts: 73member June 19, 2002 12:40PM Well, my dsl service has been excellent (using Verizon in the U.S.), but that doesn't rule out a bug.Have you contacted your provider? Reply 2 of 8 murbot Posts: 5,262member June 19, 2002 3:20PM Did it just start happening? I have this trouble from time to time, and I think it's just Telus screwing up...Other than a few days a month, I never get any drops. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" /> How long has it been doing this? Reply 3 of 8 stroszek Posts: 801member June 19, 2002 4:54PM I have a similar problem, but not with that frequency. I've always found that unplugging the modem and threatening it with bodily harm works.

(i am using dsl thru a router.) do you get that too?

We started seeing more dropouts and cured it with a newer phone cable between the modem and the wall socket. We also improved the service by getting a very short cable and moving the modem close to the wall socket.

Some diagnostics on the line by the DSL people should be able to determine that.

They had a patch that fixed it. Something to consider. Don't know if it is what you are experiencing or not. Sign In or Register to comment.
