    hi,

    i think i put my original thread in the wrong forum. not overly sure but you guys are normally pretty quick to anwser things and that one's been dead a fortnight. so here goes:) :

    i mistakenly moved to talktalk as an isp from bt. and from the day i was connected ive had these problems. i have spent pretty much everyday on hold to tech support for 3weeks and they dont have a clue. i will have sporadicaly disconnecting internet. but the bizaare stuff:
    -i open google, no connection you arnt online, i close IE, i open it, google loads..
    -i open IE, no connection, pick a bookmark, that loads.. but google wont load..
    -i open IE, no connection, nothing works its totally down and i have to run the fix programme that says my dns/ip is static when it should be aquiring dynamic. then it says i have a problem with my tcp stack. then it reboots, and within an hour its broken again. actualy within 2minutes of opening at times..
    -im playing WoW, i tab out to check something online, IE has no connection everything is broken but im online playing a game yet the web is broken..
    -a problem within WoW itself is that nothing (and i mean nothing; no talking, trading, spells, quest dialogs happen UNless i press a direction key..) [i spend most of my life playing WoW(im a student:p) and this is quite possibly the most annoying thing ive ever had go wrong.]

    i copied a window diag thingy from the log it gave me whilst i was 'playing' wow:

    Last diagnostic run time: 11/04/07 03:40:05 Network Adapter Diagnostic

    i use the realtek as net card. (the 1394 doesnt seem to go away)

    i have spent a good few hours trauling the web looking for solutions. ive tried the netsh reset thing. and a number of other bits and bobs that have just failed to work.

    ok so im running winXP and IE7. i have adaware6, spywareblaster and Sophos/zone alarm as protection. ive updated all my drivers for every card i have and every bit of software/hardware on this machine. im at a total loss and getting really frustrated :(

    any help would be much appreciated :)
    many thanks
    ruph
