Dropped connection



I dont really think that this is a XP concern..but I wanted to pick some brains on this one. I have ADSL thru Earthlink. I have used ppoe and now rasppoe. Problem has existed on both methods. DHCP addy.

About once every 5 hours my connection either drops or data transmissions completely halt for about 1 minutes and will resume. Thats really it in a nutshell..but its consistent. Has anyone dealt with this type of situation before?


Problem corrected. One phone line, 2 phones on it. One phone was causing some serious interference. Odd because you couldnt tell by using it. My signal strength was continiously below standard level casuing the loss of synch. Unplugged said phone and the line strength tripled!!

So, thats just a heads up for whoever may run across the same thing someday.
