gradual loss of download speed

  rowdy 21:53 05 Jun 2005

Two computers One XP One W98se networked ( same results with and without Router ). XP machine works normally but W98 machine, shares files and printer OK but when downloading from internet starts off at good speed but gradually slows and after a couple of minutes stops.
Tried everything, no virus/worm/trojan, no malware, reinstall of W98 and removal of all other programs same problems.
Network seems to test out OK.

Any ideas

Could be a problem with your ISP or line. Raise the fault with them.

After much searching I found that the problem was a conflict betwween the Belkin NIC and the Creative Sound card. I removed the Sound card and reinstalled the NIC and all worked well. Later was able to reinstall the sound card in different PCI slot.
