      Sky Broadband loses connection for a few seconds every hour

      Hello.
      I have recently noticed a problem with my sky broadband. Every hour or so, the connection will just simply drop. If I am doing anything like watching tv online, it will freeze. If I am talking to people on skype, the call will drop. It will always come back again within about ten seconds.
      I am currently using a Belkin N1 Vision router which shows me how much I am currently downloading and I can see that it always goes to downloading 0kbps. I can't remember when this started, but I have tried using the router that came with my sky broadband, a friends sky router, and an old gigaset router. All of which have the same problem.
      It isn't really a big problem, I don't know if anyone else has even experienced this before, I would just like to know if anyone has any idea what could be causing it. It's just that for what I use the internet for, getting disconnected for about ten seconds can really annoy me.
      Thanks in advance.

      Plug in the Sky router and take and post your stats please. You should also take them from the Test socket for a comparison.
