      Question Topic: Losing connection every 4-5 mins. Please help

      I am with sky broadband and about 85% of the time my connection works perfectly. But sometimes I will lose connection for no aparent reason and I will keep losing connection every 4-5 mins. This can sometimes repeatedly happen for over an hour before the problem magically sorts itself out.

      The connection used to be great. But for the last year this has been a pretty major problem. The connection will seemingly disconnect at random. Sometimes it will disconnect when the router has only just been turned on (so i dont think its from overheating). The disconnecting doesnt make any effect on the connection speed.

      I would be greatfull if someone could help me out with this. Its been going on for a year I have tried so many thigns to solve this, and nothing has worked. Please help.
