I have xp connected to a router for internet access & network, it intermittantly drops the connection to the router. the adsl light shows it's still connected but it won't go through to the internet until i disable the connection & enable it again. It seems to be linked to how long it's left idle. I unchecked let the system turn the device off & it made no difference. I haven't made any adjustments to the router settings.

It's just done it after around 10 minutes, the other computer still had internet access, but I didn't check the network connection to the other comp. I'll do that next time it falls over

Any ideas?

It was the firmware in the router. Upgraded to the latest, all problems gone & it's got 100% stealth on the grc security test. I did a bit of googling & apparantly the operating system doesn't like the way older router firmware works. Security threat
