    msn and windows live messenger keep siging me out. it happens on the four computers i have on my home network, i think its to do with the router, ive tried port forwarding but it doesnt seem to work, i forwarded these ports:

    6 6901 6901 6901 TCP 10.0.0.6
    7 6901 6901 6901 UDP 10.0.0.6
    8 6891 6900 6891 TCP 10.0.0.6
    9 6891 6900 6891 UDP 10.0.0.6

    any ideas?

    because broadband speeds can drop out sometimes and it will for a split second cause you to lose your connection, or and more likely is that some work is being carred out in the telephone exchange your broadband is being fed through and your getting a bit of disruption while it takes place. my old man works for bt and deals with broadband in the exchanges

    Can you access the logs on the router? Which make and model of router is it? It could be dropping the connection which is why i'm asking for the logs.

    call them up tell them and ask them to do a line test. you wont have any internet for bout 6 hours but if you let them know and tell them that your highly insatisfied and give them the speech about being a long loyal customer they should pull their fingers out :p
