Downloads extremely slow on 4mb broadband

  Sutts 21:12 25 Sep 2007

I currently have 4mb broadband with virgin media but the download speeds seem to have become much slower.

When i first had virginmedia broadband installed the download speeds were as expected but ever since in has become much slower. Ive tried virus scans, the ashampoo internet accelerator and speed tests but all seem to come up without an answer and virgin say there is no problem in my area.

I know download speeds depend on the amount of traffic and it varies between what time of the day but this happens 24/7

My computer has pentium4 3.06ghz processor with 1536mb of ram.

Can anyone help?

Speed test. click here or try ,Internet Options.Connections.Lan settings.Tick automatically detect settings.Ok.Apply.Ok.Or Network connections.Right click local area connection and press repair ans see if it finds any faults.

You could also try.Control Panel.Administrative Tools, Services, And scroll down to DNS Client and make sure that it is set to automatic.

The speed tester said my download speed was only 314kbps.

The downloads i make usually start at a high speed but rapidly reduces

Interestingly, i used this exact speed tester a month ago and it said my download speed was 3976kbps

When i clicked repair on LAN connection it says

"windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: clearing the DNS cache"

It should be about 4000 kbps so something wrong.

Sorry about the double click here.Now if I remember right there is a gap between ipconfig and the forward slash
