    broadband download speed

    I recently got broadband (DSL). I was amazed at how fast the the speed was 2 download stuff of the net and open websites. I only had it 4 maybe a wk, but the speed decreased dramatically. Now it takes ages just to download a 15sec video. I thought there might b something wrong with my comp, so I tried usin the net on my newer comp - same problem.
    Solutions I hav tried:
    -Resetting comp and modem.
    -Deleted offline contents.
    -reinstalled net using 'installation CD'.
    I don't know wats up with my internet connection. Can anyone help me out?

    i dont know, i've had my dsl runn' on 400mbs., which is insanely great for me., but no speed changes., maybe you have other proccess running that slowing your computer., or you may be downloadn stuff that slows your computer., like adware and etc..,
    my guess is the things you are downloadn'

    I think you might have spyware and adware on your computer that may be taking up your idle bandwidth
    if I were you I'd go to www.download.com and get adware removers and spyware removers also if you do not already have firefox I suggest you go to www.mozilla.com

    Have you downloaded anything that can be a threat to your computer?

    Before digging too deep for viruses & spyware: reset your modem (generally: unplug, wait 15-30 seconds, plug back in). Occasionally the broadband connection gets dusty; and that's worked a couple times for me.

    Thumbs up Its not your computer

    I dont think it is your pc maybe it is the dsl connection you are using in some cases the internet slows down and stops completly. im using T 3 if you are using a boadband connection for example fpr (Aol broadband) If you have other internet software installed on your computer that mght cause your computer to malfunction or halt. If you have a scaner make sure you scan for sypware and adware. These are threats that can slow down your comupter and will decrese your system preformance. The best thing to do is clean your harddrive of all the files that are on you computer that you know you dont use for expample (an old MP3 file) all these can stop your computer from reading information the way it should. I bet when you first got your computer everything was fine but when you went online you saw all these adds and pop ups there are a reslult of adware and spyware. Like I said before it is best to scan and contact your the pleace where you purchased your computer for further advice on cleaning out yout system.
