FRUSTRATION!!

Thanks for the link.Same results though 95kb down 520 up!!

Only been running Vista for 4 weeks things were ok before.

Do regular checks with AVG antivirus.

Running Spybot to!

I think it is Spyware!!But cant find any!

Any tips please ?

Only suggestion I have is delete your BB connection from your PC and reinstall from scratch in case its a driver issue.

I'm sure some of the others will come up with better suggestions than that though.

Just had a thought, is the laptop on Vista as well or on XP?

If its on XP then perhaps it is a driver issue and you need the latest Vista driver for your PC.

Basic housekeeping to clean out all the crap with click here

Defrag the HDD

Disable System Restore (you'll lose all your restore points) and then do full AV and anti-malware scans.

Re-enable System Restore when they've finished running

Totally stumped!Any help please?

Sorry, but have you upgraded toVista from XP? If so soundslike a modem driver issue. As others have said make sure youhave the latest Vista drivers. For your PC go tothe manufactures websiteand download the latest drivers.

If that does not worktalk to your provider.

How to fix Vista's network bottlenecks

The problem with Vista's new-fangled network stack

All this automatic tuning of the Vista network stack sounds great in theory

But the problem is that some clients don’t support TCP window scaling

Or don’t have it enabled.

Additionally, some firewall products also don’t support it.

In either scenario, the result is dropped packets, which affects network performance horrendously

Your traffic is literally dropping into a black hole, never to be seen again.

If you’re experiencing excessive network lags on Vista

Do this opening up an Administrative Command Window

Right-click-Run as Administrator and type in the following command:

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

You may also need to type in:

netsh interface tcp set global rss=disabled

The changes take effect straight away, with no reboot needed.
