View Full Version : Internet Disconnects

08-14-2005, 09:50 PM
My DSL connection has been on the fritz lately, disconnecting constantly. Sometimes it will take one minute, sometimes it takes a lot longer. I have called the phone company and asked them to test for line noise, and they said it is fine. I have checked all the wires to make sure that the phone filters are fine, etc. I have not played any online poker in about a week because of this, and I want to get back in the game. Does anybody have any idea on what it may be that can cause constant DSL disconnects?

Haven't you posted about this before ? Who do you have DSL through ? I'm not sure it matters. If you aren't using the built-in internet connection tool that comes with Windows XP, you are probably making a mistake. I have SBC Yahoo and after I uninstalled their crappy connection software, I haven't had any problems with disconnection since. I stay connected for 3 days straight easily. If you have SBC Yahoo, uninstall anything with the name Broadjump in it and use the built in internet connection device that windows xp has. Go to


Find your DSL company and get on the forums and tell them what your problem is. They will help you 10x more than any phone technician. There's also FAQ's that can help you.

I haven't posted about this before. Thank you for the link, I'll post my questions there. For the record, I use Bellsouth's FastAccess interent service (the local phone company).
