Slow downloads

  PEG007 15:11 03 Sep 2009

I run a MESH with AMD Athlon XP1800, 512 MB RAM, and NVIDEA GeForce 3Ti 200. OS is XP Pro.
ISP: Virgin Broadband.
My local area connection activity data shows that I've received 18,886 packets and sent 0 packets.
I take it there's a problem here.How do I fix it?
Thanks in advance of a solution.

Rather than worrying about "packets", go to click here to get a proper idea of your download and upload speeds

Ran the test: Download speed = 1869kbps: upload = 714 kbps

So what is your up to speed supposed to be as per your contract?

(This is the first day in our area, when schools are back and this time of day becomes noticeably slower)

Is this poor result a recent thing, or have you always had a slow connection?
