What does click here say?

I've been upgraded from 1MB to 2MB apart from being able to download files much faster, the sites don't load any quicker, I think the limitation is the bandwidth available from the site you are viewing.

i`m with NTL on there 1meg broadband in my part of luton it`s a superb service,never ever drops out.there have been many problems with the 10 meg service i believe.give NTL support a ring and ask if there is a propblem,and don`t blow your top,be calm and polite.that way you`ll get results.remember lose your temper ,lose the argument.

NTL have been having a few problems lately - seems a switch of your proxy server is a good remedy for slow browsing on NTL's 10mb service - this place shows you how to cure it!

"i got the cable but nowhere to plug it in"

What do you mean?

Do you mean you have the ethernet cable but no where to plug it in on your computer, i.e. it has no ethernet / lan port?

i mean i have the etheret cable [free from NTL ] but no modem hole in the back of my packard bell that fits it so i'm using usb hope that makes sense to you ??nb half way up the back of the tower is a hole that fitsan etheret but i dont know where it goes so dont want to f**** things up as you can see i'm a novice
