      New Sagem router does not like Newsgroups

      Hi guys,

      I have had sky BB for nearly 3 years now and for the first 2 was using my own router which i got the details off my old Netgear one. This router died so just started using my netgear one. But a few months back was also having problems with the wireless connection, after speaking to Sky they sent a new Sagem router out to me.

      This now works great with the wireless, but one problem i have found out is when i load newsgroups (via newsleecher) the internet broswer stops working and acts like its offline (FF, IE and Chrome). But newsleecher is still working fine. I then pause Newsleecher and the internet is back working.

      now i never had this problem with the old netgear one, and even put that back in to see if it was something else but using the old one can use newsleecher and internet at the same time. So it must be the new Sagem one.

      Anyone got any ideas what might be causing this?

      Try reducing the connection speed to give you a little left for browsing rtc, chances are Newsleecher is hogging all the bandwidth.
