connection diagnosis software for usb modem?

Hello

Is there any connection diagnosis software that I can use for the binatone 500 usb modem?

As I am having a nightmare with my connection and guildwars and I just want to see what is happening.

The connection drops after about approx 5 minutes playing, which is getting annoying.

No other games are getting this, but have noticed dropped connections when using torrent software.

Thanks

Line testing? I wish Ivan

Hi zippy666,

This is the same kind of question I had been asking myself (there must be something?? But NOP!! I've had no luck myself so far) and others across various forums. It would seem that when it comes to broadband services, some routers do have the ability to test the connection and log/report your line stats, some modems do even have this too.

Sadly my ADSL USB modem doesnt and I have been hunting for something that would give me line stats on my ADSL connection. But all my enquiries have fallen on stoney ground, the closest you will get is a whoosh test and most ISP's dont like doing them unless its a last resort (usually as they are just too busy to do one which isnt urgent or vital).

**I feel sure that there really is a GAP the the broadband market for someone to supply a software based product that could be user friendly and run from an ordinary PC or laptop and provide stats on the line condition for ADSL. Sadly,I'm NOT a programmer otherwise I'd have written one ASAP.
