constant drops

Anyone else having this problem. In the last 20 minutes ive had 5 drops. Ive been having this now for the last 3 months or so. Changed filters changed modem phoned bt who say there is no line fault (over the phone not on a visit) its totally doing my head in now. It can be stable for a few days then it happens again.

This sounds like a classic case to me. I remember years ago when I used a (cough, cough) adsl modem (nasty green BT frog thing) and it kept dropping out. Turned out to be a power problem, in that it was too much of a power drain on the usb port in my puter.

I purchased a self powered usb hub.....problem resolved.

I had this problem - i tried everything from new cables to a different modem to see if it was a power issue. It turned out to be BT`s problem, - they came and replaced the old street boxes and the line hasnt dropped since. Its worth finding out from BT, especially if you have any crackle on your line...
