I'm having a strange problem with my internet connection and wondered if this is common or unusual....
I contacted my ISP (Orange) due to low speeds and broadband cutting out. A BT engineer attended and carried out various tests and found no problems. However, on an occasion when I use my livebox router, the Livebox Status connection shows connected, however the PC shows no internet connection, same on other devices (mobile/laptop). When I changed to a different modem, the internet connected. Then sometime later this modem lost its connection (still showed connected) but computer received nothing again. I changed back to livebox and that works.
Resetting the modems doesnt work, even turning off for a while doesnt work. Im wondering if there just 2 poor quality modems. Annoying because at my previous address I had no problems.
