Help? Slow connection after installing new router

  defector 15:37 15 Aug 2007

Hi. Very inexperienced with these kinds of things so any help would be great.

I'm running xp on a 2 year old PC and have been surfing just fine for a while. I have recently been upgraded from a 1mb broadband connection with aol to a 3mb connection. Everything was going smoothly until this morning when i installed my new wireless router (a thompson speedtouch 585v6). The installation went just fine but my connection is now only 1.6mb and i have no idea why. I've tried everything i can think of and AOL themselves were basically useless, insisting (correctly) that my line should be 3mb and recommending that i reinstall AOL (a one hour phone call!).

If anyone could get me started here i'd be very grateful.

The user guide and latest firmware updates (probably not essential) for your Thomson Speedtouch 585.6 can be found at:

Tried the updated firmware but i think its corrupted as my .BIN programs are telling me the file format is not supported. Sigh. Annoying. Cant seem to find the Thompson support forum either. Theres a premium rate phone number for thompson but i dont think i'm quite ready for a 10 quid phone call.

It's Thomson, not Thompson.

I did say that the updated firmware probably wouldn't be essential.
