It was choppy last week and I phoned the ISP several times. They tried a few things at their end then sent a techie out. Over the weekend it was OK first thing in the morning but got slower and slower. I gave up on it. Today a new aerial has been put on the roof and everything was fine for 30 mins. Now it's gone again.

Aerial? Is this satellite? What ISP? Where are you located?

Seriously we can't even start helping, so little we know about the problem...

OK, for now it's going well.  I have a desktop computer and it's hooked up to an aerial on the roof but for the past month at least it's been choppy and this weekend it gave up.  It's funny that it actually goes alright in the morning but not during the day.  The tech has given me a new aerial and the signal which was terrible is now strong.  However, I've been hearing that they fixed it for a week or so and the next day it's disappeared again so I just have to cross my fingers.

Hi, I presume the "aerial" is infact a client wireless radio (UBNT Nano/Loco etal) in which case normally they are very reliable, so hopefully a replacement should be good to go and not fail, this assumes its not a transmission path issue.

Not a geek so not used to technical terms. :) I've done what I can by checking everything is plugged in and as I said, it did work ok in the mornings.
