      Random connection probs

      I keep getting a problem where my connection seems to die, when it happens I am unable to connect to any webpages (tried using IE7 or Firefox) or even access the router set up screen, but my uploading and/or downloading torrent connections still work?? Have to reboot pc to solve it.

      Any ideas?

      What bandwidth are you giving your torrent software? If you give it too much you will flood the connection completely.

      If the reboot fixes it, it suggests you are exceeding your maximum connections. Have a look HERE and see if it helps.
