Right ok, when i first got bt broadband (512k adsl) everything ran smoothly using one pc with a supplied usb modem. Now i have 4 pc's. I have the same connection and a bt voyager 2000 router with 3 bt voyager usb network adaptors which connect to this router wirelessly. HOWEVER>>>>> The internet disconnects every 5 mins without fail :S But one thing i noticed is, it only does when my network adaptor is enabled or my pc is on. When everyone elses pc is on the internet stays connected fine. Some how my pc is making the router disconnect from the internet. ANY SUGGESTIONS PLEASE? We are all using xp etc. etc. with up to date pc's with no other probs

These are the things ive tryed --- New network adaptors replacing all the micro filters 3 new routers (same model) replacement motherboard in my pc (however it was exactly the same model not a different one, its the ks rock k78se or something) Ive had a bt engineer round to check the line but he found nothing

PLEASE HELP ME !

cheers, jack (Monkers^) ps. to all you online gamers out there, before you think oh i cba to reply and help. how would you like it if your playing in a clan war or something and your internet disconnects every 5 mins :(

Sounds like a softwareproblem to me. Try to find the PC that makes problems (disconnecting one after another until you found the guilty one). I know that it can be very hard to find mistakes in the configuration, especially if you composed the Kernel yourself :) So, if you can't find anything the best thing you can do is to reinstall everything again, or compare every single setting to one of the pcs which work.

Heh, I have a BT Voyager 2000 ADSL router and two USB wireless adapters (BT Voyager 1010, also got a single PCMCIA 1020) and the drivers are hell for it. The only solution I was able to come up with when I got that problem was to reinstall the drivers EVERY startup, the latest drivers didn't fix this either for me. After I reinstalled XP last I've noticed that I now have to disconnect and reconnect the adapter every startup in order to get it to work, it seems that something went very wrong in the works and the thing doesn't like the world. Even with Mandrake Linux (not been able to try any other distros) its annoying, I have to start the configuration utility and re-enter the settings (but theres probably a way to fix that, w00t open source) in there, less of a problem but no matter what I do, they don't like me one bit.

Checked this?

DHCP lease time on IP assignment? "Allow the computer to turn of this device to save power" on network adapters is checked as default in "Device manager"

"Woot Open Source"

Often, these are BIN drivers though....
