Connection Gone - anyone help??
Don't know whats happened here, so any help appreciated..
I've been connected (eventually) for about a month and all seemed ok. Went on holiday last week and now back everything seems to have gone t*ts up. Since Sunday, i've had barely any connnection, if i'm lucky (and quick!) i can browse a few different sites before the connection goes. I can use the repair function (i'm wireless) and this sometimes seems to work but basically i'm not on the web (at work now).
Checked the router stats and all seem ok, i've disabled UPnP and set the speed to 108, as suggested elsewhere but this hasn't helped. Emailed Sky but of course no reply to that yet.
Anyone Help? Please!

have you done a reboot of router and pc Leave both off for around 5minutes then turn back on. Otherwise you could try a complete reset of your router! this will return your router to as it was out of the box and you can start from scratch.

Tried that - re-booted from the router menu and also the reset switch at the back (i assume thats what you mean?). It was also off all night on Monday, as was the PC.

What is the light status on the router! What does it Say for the Status on Your Local Area Connection on your computer!

All lights are on as they should be. I've just switched to wired and everything seems ok if I use IE but i'm still having problems with mozilla. Wireless is still a non starter (US Robotics wireless adapter - showing connected and excellent signal strength).
This is beyond my knowledge - help!

I have found that the built in Xp wireless client not to be too reliable, and I have been advised elsewhere to use the drivers that come with your network card, by telling Xp not to manage the wireless network card and also to disable the Wireless Zero Configuration service via control panel->Administration Tools->Services.
Having said that, I have done the above and i still have to reboot every now and again due to wireless speed going down from 54mbps to 5mbps so those tips may help, or might not !

Don't know if this has been said elsewhere but this is what worked for me:
re-installed the latest drivers for my wireless adapter (Us Robotics)
right click wireless connection in Network connections, selected properties on TCP/IP
selected 'alternate configuration' and entered the detals in the first three fields. click 'ok'
Now back on line and looks normal again. Maybe someone can tell me whether this is a good idea or not?
Cracking open a cold one to celebrate (hopefully not too early!)
