Recommended Posts

:? hi all,

im supposed to be getting 2mb download speed and 250kb upload speed from ntl in england

in the past its been registering as that speed or near enough, but now its only running at 128 down and 14 up!!!!

last time this happened i rang my isp and they kept telling me my cnnection was fine and it must be something else like spyware or mcaffee.

i downloaded a  lot of programs for finding spyware/malware/trojans etc : these are the prgrams ive used


adaware se



microsoft antispyware


about buster

xclean micro

last time i couldnt find any spyware or all of it so i downloaded the prgrams above and used them and they found more things and once id removed them all my speeds went bak to normal

i also removed mcaffe just incase it was that aswell

but now i hav the problem again and none of the programs can find anything and there all fully updated

im now using symantec/norton anti virus corporate edition v9.0.2.1000

in that case...are you connecting through a router or directly to your computer..through ethernet or usb?

did you try any tweaks yet like cablenut, make sure all your cables are plugged in (or screwed in) tightly, try powercycling your modem, if non of those work than try cablenut with vanburens settings, they work very well for most of people
