How long is the cable from your modem/router to the phone socket, this can have an effect.

You could try a better quality filter?

Does this happen only at peak times, you could be suffering from contention at your exchange.

(bt voyager 105 usb) but when i use the voyager 2100, so i can connect both my computers one is a wireless laptop the speed is slow.so i dont know whats wrong any other ideas. thank for the reply

Where did you change the MTU figure, on the router or on your PC?

To clarify, is it just the wireless connection that has the speed problem or the wired PC as well?

Do you have the latest firmware for the router?

AOL don't support BT hardware do they so no help from them :(
