I am currently having a bit of a strange problem with my connection that is really starting to annoy me....

PLEASE NOTE: I'm am not using a router for my connection, it is connected directly via USB.


Every time I try and download, or stream, or even if I use a lot of bandwith opening a lot of tabs for example - my connection peaks and then gets slower and slower until it says "limited or no connectivity" and goes offline...

This doesn't happen if I'm just browsing the net and using little bandwith...

...and when it does happen, if I simply disconnect the usb and reconnect it again, the internet starts working right away...!! Stange..??? This is without resetting the router or restarting the computer..??

It's only started happening this last few days...if I open a lot of tabs, or a download, or even a stream, it downloads perfectly up until it starts reaching a good speed, then it goes into meltdown... :)

Any help or ideas as to what might be wrong (..and how to fix it) would be greatly appreciated..!!

Kind regards,
