Internet help - March 8th 2010, 12:34 AM

An hour ago something strange happend with my houses internet connection. For ten minutes i lost all acsess to my laptop and i couldent get on xbox live. I tried it a bit later and it was all fine again, my laptop was recieving internet again and i could get back on xbox live (thank god).

I checked my router (i use a netgear) i unplugged it and then back in again. That dident work, so i left it for several more minutes and our internet was back. Im kind of paranoid about this becouse we lost Internet for most of last year and i cant afford for it to happen again. The Scart was connected to the Phone socket (in the wall).

Any reason why this could of happend?

Call your ISP and ask them, that's all I can think of really.

Thing is, sometimes your internet will just blank out, due to some malfunction or error or whatever at your ISP's end. If this happens, the most you can really do is wait it out, though unplugging your router, waiting five minutes and plugging it in again might help, depending on the specific nature of the problem.

I hope this helps.
