Broadband link failing


thumbscrew

Likes # 0

I'm with Talk Talk...ex Tiscali and for the past few days, whenever my computer has been idle for some time (Say overnight), when I boot up- I have a connection box that has to be clicked to start the Broadband-after a few minutes the connection drops and a small box appears with the message..."Link to Tiscali Broadband failed, reconnection in 50 seconds...49...48 etc, then it usually reconnects or, if not I can redial and it comes back on. I still use a USB Modem. Can anyone advise please?

Thanks Cocteau, I only subscibe to Talk Talk's broadband, not their phone, so this means I have to pay for the call and it seems to rule me out of the forum too. I've just attempted to register and they require your Talk Talk phone number.
