I have a bit of a strange problem that I can't work out. I have searched high and low for advice but can't find an answer. Essentially we have a TalkTalk wireless router which we use to connect our few laptops to the internet. That works fine 99% of the time with no problems. Because my bedroom is so far away from the router there is also an ethernet cable that runs from the router to my bedroom through the walls and I have an ethernet socket in my bedroom. Whenever I try and connect my macbook up to that ethernet connection that DSL drops and no computers in the house can connect to the internet. I login to the router and the "Total Errors Seconds" box rapidly shoots and and quickly needs up in the thousands before the DSL connection will drop.
I have completely reset my router back to factory settings which did not help at all. I'm at a total loss so any help would be greatly appreciated!
