I want to ultimately have primary cable and DSL backup on two computers. Right now, I can't even get passed ONE pc with dsl AND cable I have a DELL P2 333 with 320 RAM - WIN 98 Have been using DSL for 6 mos. with not one minute of down time I recently added a second network card and set up cable internet service. I have my system set up to "never dial a connection". I open a web browser and I'm connected via cable...no problem. After 30 minutes of quotes or browsing etc. I get nothing. It's like I just get dumped or sometimes it's painfully slow. This happens early AM and late PM. I am in an area where there aren't too many others with cable let alone cable internet. I've had two cable techs out here and the line is perfect. My TV's are crystal. Comcast can't help me much further. I have also switched network cards and purchased another modem. I am on with DSL right now b/c the cable internet is not working. I checked the IRQ's and the DSL is on 9 and the cable is on 10...whatever that means. Sometimes I can shut down and restart and I'm okay but I think this is just a coincidence. The "slowness/shutdown" is random. I spoke with someone in the next town and their service is perfect. Also, I have a program that deletes cookies, temp files etc on restart every moring. Any suggestions? Thanks, G.
