I am having a problem with a variable connection to the internet, its Win 98SE with IE6 SP1. Sometimes it will happily connect to the internet, othertimes it doesn't want to know. When it does connect it will then lose the connection after a few minutes. It sems to be connecting to pipex broadband Ok and even appears to be connected when IE6 cannot connect to the website. Strangely when it can't open a website it will happily check for e-mail with Outlook Express and download any available So far I have ran Adaware, Spybot and AVG antivirus and deleted anything found, I have deleted all cookies and temporary files, ran the fix for winsock. I tried to run the online scans from pandasoftware and trend micro but in both cases the connection was lost before completion. It seems to be very hit and miss whether we can surf the net yet we have no problem connecting to pipex broadband. Has anyone any ideas , because at the moment i am struggling to think of a solution.
