Help with fluctuating speeds please.

Recommended Posts

I've ran adaware, spybot, ccleaner, etc. I've just downloaded all updates for Windows and I've tried restarting the modem/computer a few times now. It seems my speed has been dropping a lot the last few days or so and I'm not really sure why.  Earlier my speed was very low then an hour later it was excellent now it's low again.

  I'm thinking this could possibly be a probelm with my isp (insightbb.com) since it just started happening a few days ago but I hoped you guys could take a look and give me some advice.

Are you using any P2P programs? (Like, Kazaa, Limewire, Morpheus?)  If so, then check and see your number of uploads.  I had a very similar problem to yours, and it turns out that my P2P program had reset it's options and let other users have access to upload from me, and i had an average of 20 users uploading from me at any given moment.  The rising and decreasing speeds may indicate a rising and slowing amount of traffic on the P2P network.

I do use Kazaa but I only have it running when I'm downloading something. Last night I noticed my modem was pretty warm to the touch and I had had some CD's sitting on it over the vent holes so I left it unplugged all night to cool off and my speeds this morning are

I have no idea if that could have been causing the slowdown and like I said, the speeds are fluctuating. I'm hoping these speeds will stay consistent but it may slow down again by this afternoon. If you guys have any other tips I would appreciate it.

Even if you only use your P2P when you're downloading stuff, there are still options that can make the P2P connect to the network whenever you turn on your computer, regardless of whether you're actually using the program or not.  Check and make sure that your P2P doesnt automatically connect on startup.
