I'm running on windows XP and using Talk Talk to connect to the net. For some time now I've had my modem dropping out on me. The link light just goes off and it restarts again, settlling down for between 5-15 minutes of decent connection before dropping out again. I did call Talk Talk and he suggested changing the RJ11 cable. I did this with no difference whatsoever. I rang tonight and got upped to a more advanced level of Technical support. He said I'd been given duff advise and I shouldn't be running a long ADSL cable anyway. I have to have a 10 metre cable as my PC is that far away from the master socket. He suggested having a long ethernet cable instead. Does this ring true with anyone as its starting to drive me mad now.
Any help will be gratefully received.
