Hi,
Ive been trying to find a solution to this problem for some time now.
It started out on this machine when it was windows XP, i have reinstalled xp
serveral times and since then have moved onto a fresh install of vista
business. Normal internet, file copying etc is fine, yet if i need to copy
lots of small files off an ftp site, or if i try and use skype etc, the
entire lan system dies for about 4 minutes. After this time it will come
back on its own. Ive tried removing firewalls, antivirus, resetting MTU to
lower values etc, but nothing seems to work.

Has anyone else had anything similar or can anyone suggest anything else
i can do to try and sort this out?

Many Thanks
