Hi  ( 2 xp   1 Windows 7)

I have had very constant connections to Vodafone Broadband, but recently I have been loosing my connection

When I get reconnected I see my IP address has changed..I know this can happen.. But is it the cause..

Hows has your connection been in the last week..

The only change to my system of 3 computers is that  I have installed a blue-tooth dongle in the W7 computer which is connected to my Nokia phone  (2Degrees)

I am having troubles with the Nokia phone as seen by this Icon the the Device and Printers.

Perhaps this is causing the problem..

Thank you....

Is your LAN IP changing, or the IP that you have on the router?

vodafone will be able to see a record of any disconnections of the ADSL on their records, so if you are genuinly getting disconnected, then they will see the logs and be able to get onto it.

If its just the PC losing its IP from your router, then thats not vodafones problem.

I dont see the bluetooth device causing either problem.

Its the IP that vodafone gives me that is changing. However this could be because I am off line and are given a new one when I reconnect.

I think the problem is on my system. It could be the router because when I lose my Internet I also cannot log into the router..

Thank you..
