I dont know if it is happening with anyone else out there or not. I have a 1Mbps connection and untill a week ago it was running fine with download rates of 100~110KB but now when having large downloads from rapidshare or even in general browsing very often the connection goes silent for 1~5 minutes and no network activity happens then it starts again with the normal download speed, then again it goes silent.
Although i have connected a wireless router Linksys WRTSL54GS with the DSL modem, but it was always connected initially as well, I have tried disconnecting it as well.
I have not changed any firmware, any settings or anything else on the modem. There is no noise in my normal copper telephone line. I am connected with Azizabad Exchange in Karachi.
Anyone else up for the same issue as well.
