I have been using this connection from my local cablewallah for a couple of months now. I use http client to log in using Opera in windowsXP and FF in fc9.linux. While using XP, its starts all right. Proper log-in, proper ping, no problems with any websites but within 10-15 mins websites stop replying. All downloads stop. Torrents too. Interestingly, ping works fine with 0% loss. I just log-off and then try log-in again and everything runs smoothly again for 15 mins. The problem just keeps resurrecting.While using fedora, situation is more gloomy. FF seems to work on its own terms. Sometimes it works fine. Most of the time no matter what I do, I am not able to browse even a single website even after proper log-in. In this case too, the get full reply on pinging the local server.
