Okay.I admit it. I have been an avid fan of this forum and taken lots of ideas and suggestions on board. But I have now got myself in deep do-do! I have been tinkering with my B/B trying to make it SUPERFAST instead of leaving well alone. 'If it ain't broke'....comes to mind. I have read and tried almost all of the threads suggested but have to admit that my once average speed B/B is now crawling,just. I have run boosters,tests,optimizers etc. etc. infact I have tried everything my very limited pc brain knows but I am just making it worse. Can I uninstall my modem (Speedtouch 330 ) and software and then completly reinstall from the beginging again.What are the problems if any and will this take me back to the speed I had when I set B/B originally. I am on XP and my ISP is Onetel
Get ride of all of internet optimizers, speeder etc. They are just watse of time.
Nothing can pass physical barrier. 512kbs is the bandwidth ISP provide and 512kbs is maximum you can get. If you live very far from exchanger, then you cannot get maximum bandwidth.
BB is slow? What you need it for? It may not be you end is slow, maybe other end (the web site you are accessing) is slow. Go to this site to test your speed click here, for a 512kbs connection, you may get 470bks.
Thanks all. I've got cold feet now and I will leave well alone. My own fault though. Should have experimented in the first place. Is there a broadband expert out there who lives in the Alton ( Hants ) area who has a spare 30mins?!!!!!!
