Hi , i have had this issue for awhile where my broadband connection "hic
ups". I thought maybe it was my provider but i recently changed from dsl to
cable and it is still doing it. The only way I really know is that MSN
messenger and Yahoo messenger sign off at the same time. I did have a
problem back when i had dial up where the connection would just stop for no
apparent reason. I am wondering if anyone as any ideas on how to fix this,
as it is apparently my computer and not the isp's issue.

Thank You.

It might be lower down, eg IP leases running out or some part of the
