Hey there. Well after having changed 'net providers to BT, and for 5 or so weeks everything was running smoothly, my connection suddenly began to time out. It is completely random. I sometimes will boot up my PC and it won't even connect to Google, yet sometimes it will run fine for 5 hours or so before refusing to connect - either way I have to restart my PC... And that sometimes doesn't fix it. If what I download will help in any way, I just use Style XP for themes - which I like to change every so often. I download them from Deviantart and Customize.org, don't know if that will help... The other peculiar thing is that my brother uses the same router to get his wireless connection - yet he doesn't experience any problems at all, perhaps it is something to do with the system files? Hope someone can sort this out for me, as it is becoming a real pain in the backside and I don't want to be forced to reformat my PC. Thanks, Jon.
