The Internets Restored!! Yay!
on 7 July 2014
I've been getting sporadic internet disconnections for ages (years on and off). It only happened now and then so I just put up with it. Not being techy at all I didn't know where to start looking for the cause either. A recent lightning strike killed my router and when the new one was installed I got more disconnections than ever. Some days I couldn't get connected at all. I blamed the new router but the ISP insisted that it was fine and my network adapter was to blame. Eventually I gave in and reluctantly sent off for one of these, just in case they were right.
Fitted it to a spare PCI slot (which was easy even for untechy me, after watching a vid on YouTube) and I haven't had a moment's trouble since. I wish I'd bought one of these years ago. The driver installed automatically, it really was a case of fit and forget. Lovely stuff!!
(My old one was a Broadcom 1gb Ethernet Network Adapter in a Dell Inspiron desktop, in case that's relevant to anyone.)
