I've been having dreadful problems getting a stable connection to PN since the MaxDSL upgrade. If I could connect to a BF2 server I'd lose the connection within a few mins, half the time I couldn't connect at all! I also got constant drops and lose of sync while surfing.
Today I changed from my old Zoom PCI internal modem to the Binatone 500 usb which I was given when I first signed up to PN and it's working much better. No drops at all when surfing.
Still get dropped from BF2 with the 'There is a problem with your connection' message' from time to time though.
Would a router help to stabilse things even more, if so which one would folks recommend?
