I have 512k broadband, which usually d/loaded at 60k a sec. After about 10 months, I noticed it began downloading at a speed of 5-6k a sec (very very slow!!). This isn't because of any p2p software being on or even installed. It downloads updates from microsoft and norton at the normal fast speed (about 60k a sec)but from most sites including easports.com, it d/loads at 5 k a sec. I have ran spyware scans, virus scans yet nothing has fixed it.
Does anybody have any idea how to fix this? Webpages load instantly. But when d/loading from other pcs and most sites, it is 5k a sec. This isn't because of the other pc bandwith either. Even when i d/load from a 2meg bandwith it is 5k a sec.
no i download everythin through kazaa (i know its not recomended but it hasnt given me any probs for 11months). even using msn it downloads at 5k! even with kazaa uninstalled. yet on my DSL status bar, it clearly shows that the webpages are loaded at 60k a sec. so browsing isnt a problem, it simply is downloading frm most sites and peer 2 peer. I dont download anything now and yet when i download one file it is a t 5k a sec.
