    I'm not an expert on internet far from it but there are some things you can try, do a system restore to before you had this problems or you can reset your modem if you have one.

    I have reset the modem...repaired the connection...etc...EVERYTHING...even thrown it against the wall...it's a PC problem...so I guess a format is what's needed, because I've been needing to do one for a while anyway...but I still want to know how to fix this before I format...it's pissing me off...

    My mate had a similar problem with his Telewest modem (telewest/ntl same company) fixed it by just restoring the modem to its factory settings
