ok and one more thing plz what mtu ttl rwin etc etc .. values should i set . A friend of mine told me that setting these to the correct values helps but i have no idea what they should be on for my connection.And also i downloaded the tcp optimizer and set all values at optimum but that did not help either

Where are you from? Just shift to an alternate client if it still works in your area... and the default mtu for sify should be 1448... and as for the rwin values... leave it at default unless u get a lot of corrupt data.

It seems this is a problem with your lan card or your firewall... post back with what firewall you are using... zonealarm causes these sort of typical problems.

im using the mcafee personal firewall which is inclusive in the all in one suite that i bought . ive been using this for the last 3-4 months and never had any sort of problem like this . Its just in the last month or so this has started happening . And i think i have the latest lan card driver too

Then there is obviously some 3rd software that is causing all these problems... try remembering if you installed any software after which these probs started... do spyware checks(very important... use both spybot s&d and adaware).

What exactly do you mean by the internet freezes? Does your comp hang or does data transfer stop?
