    Havn't posted awhile, been away. Yesterday, i rang isp techie. My friend lives in a half house with her parents. Parents have main phone line in their flat, friend has extention in their flat. Techie said modem is too far away from main phone line. (probably about 10 ft)He suggests a long usb cord to attach pc to modem that is sitting closer to main phone line. He says that when checking connection, he can see that internet is connecting, but dropping out straight away. He said this happens about 20 times in about 30 minutes. Does any of this advice make any sense?

    it could do - however, I have my router on an extension lead that goes all the wau upstairs around a wall 13ft into a cupboard - into another ext adapter - round a wall 9ft - up the wall into a wall socket - then from there on a 5M ext cable - the router plugs in there

    i think the only way to prove it would be to put the modem with a short cable next to the main phone line and see if it drops - after all 20 times in 30 mins - you will soon know
