Hi Blokes,this is for imformation only & you sparks may have come across this problem before. I have been having problems with my broadband connection dropping out. After many conversations with BT in India (or wherever), I have sussed the problem. When I have switchd on my Xmas lights, I have had problems with my internet connection....The moral of this story....Don't run the power to your Xmas lights too close to the incoming phone line !!!!! Merry Xmas, Malkie.
