    Hi, you still haven't given enough information.

    You say your computer is slow.............

    1. Is that just internet connections, or is it the computer in general?
    2. What are the processor and memory (RAM) specifications?
    3. What operating system are you running?
    4. What web browser are you using?
    5. Does performance vary with the time of day.?
    6. Have you checked your resource usage when it is running slow?
    7. When did you last clear out your history and cache files?

    Update your AV and AdAware then re-boot into SAFE MODE and run them...........find anything?
    Whilst you are in safe mode, defragment your hard drive.

    I am still concerned with the upload being more than the download I usually estimate about 25% as a reasonable ratio...............on my ADSL link uploads are at half speed anyway.

    Do you have file sharing enabled?

    I am curious as to why you think your machine is slow...........sure, as pointed out, you will not get 10MBPS, but if you are getting 1MBPS you are running twice as fast as I am , and I don't think that this machine is slow. What are you comparing it to?

    Can you check with you neighbours and perhaps people on a different spur (different building)..............it could even be a hardware problem.............I have seen that before.............either your machine, or the network, or both. It would be nice if you had a friend with a laptop who could bring it to test your connection. If there is little or no difference, then that will rule out your personal kit.

    Please post back, as even if we cannot improve things much, we will at least have exhausted some of the possibilities and gained further insight into the problem?

    Cheers

    Hi Waterboy,

    To add to foxyloxley's and nihil's questions...just to clarify, as everyone has a different standard of slow...what is your definition of slow?

    I'm running at 45.2kbps...alot less than 1mbps...( and I still got in before foxyloxley, zencoder, and ZT3000...and I started when no one was here too )
