Hi Thanks - that might help on my one main pc - but the problem is also happening on my other devices - with no Desktop Help istalled!!
This sounds very much like the problem I've been experiencing, i.e. partial or complete packet loss. Can last 10-20 secs, but can also last 5+ mins. Check out my thread here, my symptoms are detailed there. You could try pingplotter to check this out.
Hi - I'm afraid that sounds too techie for me. But my issue seems to be linked to certain sites (or types of sites?) e.g facebook often hangs, BT Yahoo email, Microsoft Online. When it hangs it can take over an hour - but sometimes just refreshing will get me into the page. Unfortunately BT's help teams seem to miss the point and keep referring to the line test speed - which is almost always very good. They are currently expecting me to follow some links theyve sent me - to tweak the wireless settings - and will call me back in a week!!! But it happens even when I connect wired.
