hi,
i have a incredibly slow download speed for my laptop. I have got (supposedly) 8Mb speed, but at the moment (11:00 at night) i have 26.9Kb. now, as a fairly prodificient pc user and networker, i know this is screwed up. My speed test is 267kb or there abouts, and upload is 299Kb. I have tested my line by bt and it says i can get upto 6Mb speeds, and i am no way getting this.

My set up:

BT broadband with wireless hub
High end laptop(connected wirelessly)
and various other pc's around my house, but with mine on only.

any help would be MUCH appreciated
