Hi! I have pretty wierd doubt to ask. I am using bsnl plan 500 and these days I observe the net gets disconnected every 5 to 10 min or it doesnt connect at all. But the wierd thing is that if i keep my telephone receiver outside the cradle(telephone is engaged) it connects very fast and the connection remains very stable for hours. I have tested this for 2 weeks and i am sure of this. But hey guys mine is a broadband not a dialup. What is all this. Will anyone pleeeeeease help me out. I use xp sp2. The Huawei SmartAX MT841 modem is connected to the pc using USB(Does this effect the stability of the connection?). The phone line coming in is connected to a splitter which connects to the single phone and the modem. The exchange guys had checked the connection and declared it totally fine.
