      Connection Drop then modem hangs

      Hi

      Whenever I seem to download large files or use a p2p service my connection dies. Most of the time the router also becomes unresponsive (attempting to hit it via 192.168.0.1). I have to reboot the router a couple of times before the connection establishes ok.

      Can anyone shed any light?

      Thanks

      Aaron

      It could be a faulty router. Apart from that your sync speed is low for your attenuation. Try plugging into the Test socket, link below. See if that helps.
      Are you using wireless or homeplugs?
