    My broadband at home is not behaving properly. Intermittently you get the green connection light on - AOK then you get it flashing to show no connection.

    Whe have checked the lines in the house and the microfilters. Is there a good adsl troubleshooting site or can you advise what to check.
    FYI It is a 512k connection USB broadband modem connected via BT to Pipex in the UK.

    I think it would be best to contact your ISP and ask them if your DSL is 100% go and your local exchange is up and running too.

    I'd call pipex and see what they have to say. It may be your modem playing up, or it might be something at their end. There's a pretty good site about broadband in the UK here that you could check - they have a bulletin board and might be able to help.
