Hey guys,

My network has been running fine for about a year. All of a sudden I drop Internet connection on my powerbook after about 10 minutes of surfing. I get no http, no ping etc. In the mean time my PC is still happily downloading torrents like it was for the past 6 months. The only thing I can do is reset the powerbook or reset the modem.


1.25Ghz Powerbook

Router - Billion 5100W

No major changes in hardware, usual software updates. Any help would be great, thanks guys!

Who is the isp and is it cable, ADSL or dialup?

How is your powerbook connected to the billion?

If it's connected wirelessly, check you're running the latest Airport software and look for firmware updates for the Billion. Might be worth using an ethernet cable to narrow it down to a wireless problem.
