    I have installed new bigpond thomson tg782t broadband to my networked 3 computers that also connect with a sharp ar-m162 multifunction printer thru ethernet cables and router. When I try connecting the ADSL thru the new modem the printer goes off line and won't print. Operating system on all 3 computers is windows xp. Also sometimes the LAN operating system on the main computer running everything keeps flicking between connected and unplugged/ disconnected.
    Has any one got any ideas on how to fix this very annoying and time consuming problem. Much appreciated any help.

    Well, this sure sounds like your Thompson modem/router is the problem, I suggest getting a replacement for that as a first step. The fact that it appears to be resetting suggests a hardware failure in the modem/router.
