We have a 60mb Virgin Media cable connection which provides a reliable service, most of the time.
To see what i mean, there are intermittent periods where we seem to drop off the network - we can't access the net and the thinkbroadband ping monitor can't receive a response from our end.
These issues seem to happen every half our or so but only when a specific is on.
What I find odd is that whatever is causing it seems to kill our connection for a few minutes then everything returns to normal.
I've checked drivers for the internal wifi card and can't really find any clues as to what may be the problem.
I suspect, due to the repeated nature it has something to do with an app trying to update but don't see how it could have such a pronounced effect on our connection.
Has anyone seen this before? Got any ideas or tips so we can get to the bottom of it?
Throwing out the laptop in question isn't really an option!
