i hope conor you read this, looks like we need your help again! ok, my brother has sony vaio laptop. he was having broadband problems with toucan, who suggested getting a modem - he did & bought a netgear one. after receiving excellent advice from conor, we managed to get him on secured network broadband with netgear. everything was ok for 5 weeks until monday. since then when he tries to bring any webpage up, it says webpage temporarily unavailable. i know this is common, however he needs to refresh around 5 times to get the page loaded happening on most webpages. he says on rare occasions it does load immediately. it also seems slow. in his own words its weird. i said perhaps there are some connection issues & as it was bank holiday maybe the net was very busy! not good advice but i am no i.t. technician! however this is now a week old so that theory is blown away. any ideas? i wonder if something is trying to load as well as the webpage in the background.
