    does this happen with all search engines, eg google yahoo. or just a few,
    does your connection drop altogether, and you have to restart to fix it?

    Just go to the Compaq/HP website. You can download a PDF motherboard manual for your model. It will have a nice picture of your motherboard showing where all of the jumpers are located. Piece of cake.

    If it's dropping connection, perhaps calling your ISP is in order. Maybe you have a bad cable modem. Let them diagnose your connection, they should be able to tell you something if it's indeed an issue with thier 9unless you bought) modem or connection. Perhaps answering questions by Livy may shed something as well.


    You could even try releasing/renewing your ip address??

    it doesn't really happen on other sites. inorder for me to bring the connection i have to un-plug my modem wait for a minute then plug ti back in and let it go thur its process of connecting again.

    i have a Motorola Surfboard cable modem if that helps

    I've heard of this problem before, I believe the solution was updated drivers (or maybe firmware), but I don't know where they got them from.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
