I had something simmilar before switching ISP, for me it's DNS that was going down when Freenet was on (or other P2P apps). To test it try and see if when you have the problem again you can access http://188.8.131.52/ if you can then it's dns, if not then it's completely different problem. (Note: sometimes after running for a long time i couldn't even access ip addresses directly any longer, so do it as soon as the problem begins). -- === Contact details: Alt e-mail: k0324474 at kingston.ac.uk ICQ: 253627744 Frost: VolodyA!
