My friend has win98se and internet via 56k freeserve account.

Recently she has been getting cut off whilst surfing the net.

She can connect normally but then after a few mins the line is dropped. This has only started this week but is getting progressivly worse.

After a bit of searching around it seems BT and DACS could be a culprit.

Can anyone please help? M

hi caast©? I had a similar problem which was also getting progressively worse and you could hear crackling on the line through the handset.It turned out to be moisture in the main box coming into the house, found by the telephone engineer with a very sensitive meter, he changed the box and it worked perfectly.

Regards,

Sapins.

If the link goes through and your left with an apparently blank screen - click on the "Skip this ad" in the top right-hand corner. Link woks fine for me.
