connection crashes very often

Hello,

Lately my internet connection crashes too often. It is impossible to me, to watch any video streaming, but also it’s very difficult to surf any dynamic site with no interruption. Connection crashes even trying to download update or installatin packages…

My connection parameters are ok, as upload/download speed, so I don’t understand. As a note, when connection crashes, I need to restart even the modem…

I’m talking about Opensuse 11.4 (latest release)…

Thanks for any hint

Do you have windows on the same machine (or another in the same network) whereby you could test the same sites with a different operating system, to see if the external infrastructure plays a part.

Then, your modem or your ISP is at fault, not linux.
