help with new speed problem

Recommended Posts

I was recently switched over to Roadrunner from Adelphia. I was told I had the 8000 down package.

When I use Firefox 2.x I get decent speeds- if not great.

But using IE6 (which I went back too after stupidly trying IE7) I get way slower speeds. Anyone have any ideas? Nothing else has changed beside changing some  (rwin, etc.) settings with Cablenut to figure the increase from 6000 to 8000 down.

I'll be happy to provide any info needed. btw- I always had over 6000 down with Adelphia- didn't realize I'd miss them.

Thanks for any help- I'll have to check back later, my apologies.
