    Anyone else suffering from broadband dropouts? I'm on SSE fibre, been great most of the time but the last month or 2 I've had dropouts. Not regularly, but getting worse. Yesterday was rather bad:

    My router is repeatedly dropping the connection, yet it works fine again afterwards without a reboot or anything. In fact my router seems to be staying on fine, its just the connection. I have a new router on the way, but was just wondering if anyone else had problems?

    I've not been able to download my @ntlworld.com emails for about a week. Mr Branson has been informed.

    Virgin BB has been dropping on and off here quicker than a whoors knickers lately. But, according to the nice non English speaking person that I talk to EVERYTIME, there is nothing wrong with either the superhub 2.0 thingy at the house or the green box up the road.

    Only problem I've had with Virgin is the TV was pixelating too much
    to watch, it I rang them and they sent me a new box that seems to have
    cured it, though the broad band seems to hang for a second or two
    when changing sites.

    Are you BTish? Have you one of these -

    [​IMG]
    ?

    I'm currently reduced to the status of a bum - typing on an actual keyboard of a tiny 'note book' type affair that, were i a computer, could probably be my grandchild.

    It is connected to the intertubes via a dongle, that has a small blue light upon it that announces its connection to those tubes.

    The LAN1 light that can be seen on the ^above BT offering flashes like it is trying to communicate with Winona Ryder. Up till before now, one simply assumed it was just a blinky light - though the various tablets that are in use within the house had experienced unusual drop-outs and the like.

    The interesting thing about the whole god-i-wish-i-hadn't-killed-my-laptop-this-'note-book'-situation-is-intolerable-and-relying-on-the-tablet-is-even-worse dongle experience, is that as the LAN1 light flashes on and off on the BT hardware, the blue light on the dongle flashes in sync with it.

    I don't really know what any of this means, but when i say 'the interesting thing about...' , you can bet your arse i mean 'the really annoying thing about...'

    At least i have a keyboard, even though i can barely see it.

    Took me a few minute to find the ' - though failing eyesight can't be ruled out as a contributory factor.

    Which is a ^sentence i wouldn't have contemplated on a touchscreen
