    I had a contract for DSL for two years and every few seconds i got ' Connection time out ` or ' Server not responding ' . To the point that when i click on anything i pray :) ........ sometimes i have to send an email 12 times before it gets sent . Every time contact breaks off . My housing asociation says its me or the ISP . The ISP says that they can see a problem but its at my end = Either my router and computer or my housing asociations wireing .

    So i then had two years with a different firm and the same router and computer on a glassfiber connection . ZOOM !!! In two years i never had a problem . Instant page load times instead of up to 45 seconds or not at all .

    Then i changed back to DSL from a third firm ...... and now have exactly the same problems again . Thats three years of paying 20 Es / $ a month and having to buy three computers and two routers ....... plus update two from win 7 to win 10 and new drivers for the router and the computers . And the ISP says again that they can see a problem but its at my end . A few weeks ago on teusday my housing asociation made an apointment with me for thursday so that an electrician could check the wireing . On wednesday my connection was perfect . On thursday the ' electrician ' came , i opened the door and he grinned at me and said ' Problem :) ....... you have no problem ........ i just checked everything and everything is OK ' ......... then he came in and took the lid off the connection box on the wall , took a small clip in his fingers , walked out of my apartment , stood outside for two minutes and then came back in and put the lid back on the box and said ' I checked everything and everything is ok ' = He lied because he cant test the connection without connecting an instrument on the one end and sending a signal from the other .

    SO ....... i've had three years of PAIN and expenses and over 2000 Es / $ costs ......... and being shouted at by two ISP firms and my housing asociation ....... and all refuse to do anything . ALL say its me and my computers ......... wich strangely enough work perfectly when i connect them to the net at friends apartments .

    I have no help . Has anyone any sugestions and / or advice please ? Maybe it would be good if i had some sort of capture system / software to record the problems on the screen as they happen ........ but i havent got a clue about that .
