    Hi,

    I seem to be having intermittant issues with my internet connection on 2 different PCs where I am either getting regular page can not be displayed or page can not be found error messages.

    This can occur on any website whilst doing normal browsing but seems to be a major issue when logging in to sites such as hotmail/e-bay or posting on forums. Refreshing the page usually solves the issue.

    My Internet is from NTL and is a set-top box to a Belkin router and then CAT-5 cable to the 2 PCs. I have had the set-top box connected directly to each PC on it's own and had the same issue so I don't believe the router to be at fault (I'd replaced the old one because of this issue). I have also had the PCs connected to the router by wireless to eliminate the NICs as the problem to no avail.

    I've cleared the Temp Internet files, run a number of anti-spyware apps, Ccleaner and virus checks on both.

    NTL came out and changed the cable from the set-top box to the router and this made a slight difference (they'd stapled thru the old one) but the main issue still occurs. They also checked the connection from outside to the set-top and the signal was good.

    I've checked task manager and it shows little utilisation of the NICs when the problem occurs.

    I think the problem is with the set-top box as it is the only thing that hasn't been checked that thoroughly but wondered if there was anything else I could check on the PCs? They are both XP. My normal PC is P4 3.60GHz with 1GB RAM and the internet connection is 1Mb/s.

    Cheers in advance
