Title: I keep losing contact with my website!
Post by: Geoffw on March 03, 2021, 06:45:04 pm
I keep losing contact with my website!

Living in a rural area of West Wales we have for the past 8 years dispensed with our BT connection and instead used rural wireless broadband.  Fibre has now come to our village so on Monday 8th February we had a major change to our internet connection.  We are very pleased with the outcome, double the bandwidth and the ability to view the IPlayer in high resolution!

However, there is the one issue that BT has failed to resolve.  We have had this problem from day one.  Soon after I first turn on my desktop PC (Windows 10) I loose contact with my website & emails.  From then on none of our devices are able to access our site until I reboot my BT Home Hob 2 (router).  When I do this, we are fine for the rest of the day.  If I do not start my desktop in the morning, we have a trouble-free day.
 
I have disabled my virus checker and am relying on Windows Defend at the moment but that hasn't helped.

Can anyone offer a suggestion?
