My connection keeps slowing then freezing on my computer. It appears to be on my computer only. This is what I have tried in the last 10 days.
I have reformatted with Windows 8 - did not work
Tried Wireless and Ethernet connection - both do the same
Bought the new BT home hub 4 - did not help with connection
I have recently moved. The computer worked fine at previous location. Sky were great and it just worked. I have on board NIC and USB pen wireless both produce the same results. This is strange as It shouldn't be y computer hardware but it seems to be my computer that triggers either the internet to freeze. I can still access the router settings when this happens so the network / hardware appear to be OK.
I have tried the BT help line but it is all the usual, try the test socket etc....
Has anyone had this problem? Or any ideas at diagnostic tests I could run?
This problem makes no sense to me.
Thanks in advance,

I have the new home hub 4 - are there any other details as no instructions for the hub 4
I also have done the test telephone socket over the phone quite a number of times. The filter is new and working OK - no crackling etc...

when the internet freezes is it actually the internet has disconnected or is it your pc that stops getting access to the internet? when it happens and you access the hub is it still conencted to the internet?
there should certainly be no problem with ethernet so have you checked that your network card driver is up to date from manufacturer's website and not rely on windows update?

When the Internet freezes, it then stops for all of the computers (wireless or Ethernet connection) throughout the household. I haven't actually checked to see if the hub is still connected I will do that when I next encounter the freeze.
I am using the on board Ethernet port and not a PCI card.

if onboard ethernet then the motherboard manufacturer may have an updated driver
