    I'm on BYBB too, if you use up a lot of bandwith in one day, i.e. downloading tonnes, the connection goes dead after a while, I don't know why, but it does.

    Maybe something your running automaticaly shuts your connection down.
    ie a completed download or something.Not sure how much data your downloading
    but I heard stories also about eating all the bandwidth on blueyonder and getting
    kicked off.
    I presume this only happened after your installed a harddrive and xp re-installed.
    Which to me seems like Setting within windows or software needs changing.

    The best way to sort that out is monitor it for a few days
    Leave the pc on all night with an intenet connection but close everything
    else ? No downloads lol.If its still connected you are narrowing down the
    problem ?

    maybe to do with the power settings?
    or try device manger and tell it not to turn of to save power, Image
    if you have this option. im on a latop so might only be to do with that?
