    My internet connection will often stop working intermittently and then come back on a few minutes later. Sometimes it seems to get reaaaally slow before it stops working completely.

    I believe it is happening to all computers on my home network, but not sure why it would. Someone said they had the same problem, and fixed it with a line filter, but my adsl line has a line filter.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    Hey.

    If your pcs are all attached to a router, visit the manufacturer's website to see if there is a firmware update. Install it if so.

    It's also worth trying a replacement filter - they can and do fail (and do you have them installed on all phone sockets, not just the one which the router is plugged into).
