So I am staying a week at my Dad's, and decided to bring my comp along for some late night Bf2 fun. Now for the problem. Since I came the internet has been very skectchy. Going on, and off every 30 minutes or so. I called up my the ISP, and there was nothing wrong with the lines. So I turned off my computer, and switched to my Dad's lappy, and no problems. Odd as it sounds the internet is perfect running when my computer is not connected onto the network. It is almost like my computer has been banned from the ip address which really can't be possible. Any Ideas on what could be causing this? Whenever my computer is on, and connected the internet in the entire house goes within a couple of minute Which ruins my BF2 plans.

I had this recently too. Unfortunately there was a very simple explanation; my parents had unplugged my DSL cable. Not to worry though, I've snuck off to the kitchen and am posting this on my laptop. I shall never be stopped. MUAAHAHAHAH! Oh, shit, my battery :( Anyways I would have a talk with your phone company. Completely disconnecting sounds like a wiring/line problem. Unless it's your parents :rolleyes:

The internet is up when MY computer is not connected to the network. It is only when I log with my comp when things start going to hell.

Hmmm...are you using 56k or Cable/DSL? If its the latter then make sure your DSL filters are securely attached to all phone appliances (including computers using 56k). If that don't work, then call your cable/DSL company. If you use 56k, does your Dad live in a rural area? If so then you may experience some degradation of the internet signal, which can cause spontaneous disconnects. This is common in rural areas as phone lines there are often neglected. Hope this helps winkx.gif EDIT: Just forgot, if you have DSL and your dad doesn't, then his phone line will have to be DSL enabled for you to connect to your ISP. Trying to connect without a DSL line may affect the phones in your house; I'm not sure. Also, remember that only one 56k computer can be connected to the Internet at any one time. Attempting to connect two or more simultaneously will cause both computers to lose their connection.
