intermittent site connections on broadband

  pgmk 21:26 23 Oct 06

Just hoping someone can help. Have recently switched broadband to Tiscali and have an intermittent problem. I connect to the net but the number of sites I can surf to varies enormously. Sometimes I can hardly get any, not even the tiscali portal, bbc or google, other times it works almost normally. I have a 2 Mb connection, though my line is good for faster. I was previously on a 512K connection with Telecoms Plus and had no trouble. Has anyone any suggestions as to whether it might be the connection, or the PC, or what? Tiscali support can only suggest "get a local pc vendor in and he might be able to sort out your computer" - yet it has been all right up to now and some days is fine.
